Work till you drop

Ground Ops (Current Employee)

ProsFree flights (no international) just domestic.

ConsLow starting salary~ flights are full and very tough to fly standby.~ MANDATORY OVERTIME ALWAYS~ Don't think of going home when your shift ends~~ you're told your shift is NOT ending and you're expected to work overtime~ if you say no~~ bye bye ~~ can't refuse. Meanwhile managers ~ are never around ~ as is the CEO, they all hang out in their air conditioned or heated offices~~ clueless. Morale stinks. They keep trying to pour kool aid on you.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire MORE people~ STOP the mandatory overtime. Get a REAL clue about life for the workers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
