keeping the baggage system at the airport running is very crucial and can be stressful when something goes wrong. with that being said a typical day isn't always like that. Somedays everything runs smooth and you'll have some downtime.
Ramp Agent (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 21, 2018
Dont come to this place it is horrible. Poor management at the job site and office. They dont care about you. Leads and supervisors pick favorites. So much drama at this place. Only good people there are the islanders. They treat you fairly.
Management (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – May 14, 2018
If you're desperate and need a job go to WFS. They hire anyone and everyone. They'll hire you on the spot. You don't need any skills at all. Don't expect to be paid what you're worth because that'll never happen. You'll bust your butt! and get paid peanuts. The best part of working there is the Industry. The worst part flows from Corporate to Management. Employees are just not treated fairly. If you need a job check it out. It only takes 30-90 days or more to actually start working.
mechanic (Current Employee) – SeaTac, WA – May 12, 2018
A typical day for me is doing paperwork that my manager only looks at maybe once per month. Then traveling to various locations to do fluid and operation checks on vehicles. Find equipment that is damaged from operator carelessness, request the parts I need to fix them and then get the parts weeks later or sometimes not at all.
The most enjoyable part of my job is watching planes and watching how operators break things.
When we report things to management about operators breaking things nothing is done about it. But it is always our fault that things aren't running. We are told do quick fixes and then never given the opportunity to fix it properly.
Ramp Agent (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 8, 2018
A typical day at work is very busy and productive I learn how to direct a moving vehicle and how to load mail in a airplane. Management is very friendly and professional; Culture is to build team work and promote safety; hardest part of job is the weather changes and the noise; the most enjoyable part of the job was working with the people.
Passenger Service Agent (Current Employee) – Montrose, CO – May 1, 2018
This is a seasonal job and most of the ups and downs of the job are properly laid out for you in advance. The job is fun and rewarding and very interesting! There is a lot to learn in a very short time so you must learn quickly and take notes. There are no flight benefits, health insurance, or other benefits for this position. You are paid $15/hr to start to compensate for this. When it is busy season the money can be very good!

Passenger Service Agent (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 22, 2018
Lack of communication with management, however everyone worked as a team. With WFS in Denver we worked 9 Airlines not including how many flights. Few room for growth for certain employees. No benefits whatsoever, no raises until after 18 months of employment. Starting pay is so little. Huge turn over rate. Can also be a fun job but also a stressful job. Depending on day and depending on our passengers. Definitely not laid back, constantly busy. Friendly staff and supervisors. Great flexibility and a decent job for college students. Expect to learn fast and be good at it.
Human Resources & Facility Administrator (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – April 18, 2018
We needed structure. WFS and Cas, two handling companies merged together creating friction among employees. Each company had there on rules and way of running things. So daily work life there hasn't been easy or good for a while.
Ticket Agent (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 17, 2018
Loved how fast pace the job was, however the amount of hours I was working was ridiculous. They only had to sets of hours you can work as a part timer, which was 0400-0800 or 1200-1600. Anytime we would pick up hours, it had to be between the two. They were always messing up our paychecks leading us to continuously write down our hours we worked the day of.
