    -working with planes which is exciting
    -Good pay

    -discount on flights for working at airport
    -time and half when you work on your days off. (Totally worth it)

    Cons

    There's not many cons I will say if your lazy this is NOT the place for you. You've got to hustle at this kind of job. Oh and its hard to find hours when it's NOT peak season. (Keep in mind it's only a part time job)

    Pros

    Management identifies hard workers and will give them more opportunities. They listen to your problems and do their to address them.

    Cons

    The low staffing results in slow firing periods so you end up with really lazy workers and you gotta pick up the slack. The other problem is that team leads tend to put better workers in more positions and it can be a bit overwhelming and annoying because you are paid the same as the lazy people around you, but it gives you a better chance at getting recommendations for higher paying jobs.

    Pros

    Family oriented company, supportive, and dedicated to making sure customers and employees get their needs met.

    When the weather gets bad it is hard to get the freight to the customer in a timely manner. Nature can work against us at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being family oriented. This company cares about their employee; make you not want to leave ever.

    Pros

    Fast paced, busy days, lots of over time, great fellow employees.

    Cons

    Impossible deadlines, points against you for late delivery, often don't have the tools needed to complete tasks assigned.

    Advice to Management

    Don't use maps and data to plan delivery routes. Terrain and safe drive time are not justified by Google Earth or Thomas Guide maps. Delivery routes should be driven by the people who expect the overnight packages to be on time before they agree.
