Work is okay, but poorly managed, and 10-yr pay progression makes a career unlikely for most.

Ramp Service Agent (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at United Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFull benefits even for part-time. Flight benefits if you have the stomach for it. Union job protection. Work load is comfortable. Great group of fellow ramp agents. Work outdoors.

Cons10-yr pay progression from $9/hr-$21/hr. Poor management at all levels. Many worker concessions over the past 20 yrs. No COLA raises beyond top pay scale. Weak union due to US legislative constraints. Flight benefits often difficult to take advantage of. Work outdoors in all weather.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce pay progression to 3 years and watch turnover plummet. Get your CBAs settled in a timely fashion to empower your entire work force. Hire people-managers not police and bean counters.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
