    Pros

    Training
    Room for growth
    Leadership
    Freedom while working

    Cons

    Some airline employees were hard to work with; the laborers, more so.

    Some of the peak times of the year we needed extra help but they did not hire more people until our performance numbers were being jeopardized.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck but other than that this is a job I could not and will not ever work for this company again. Not even if the begged me

    Cons

    Way to many to even thinking about listing. The Manager is so unbelievably clueless. Communication is non existant. He shows up in the station when he feels like it. He has a mailbox on his door and paperwork will sit there for sometime a week at a time. So you know he's not been there in at least a week. The turnover is incredible, which is a reflection on the manager as well. My first ramp experience was a horrible one

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your manager. He's killing the station

    I worked at JetStream Ground Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros to this location or even this company...

    Cons

    Every con you can think of possible, As a supervisor you don't have the power to discipline employees on any level. Ramp agents get away with certain things and the manager only listens to who he wants. If you're not part of his religious group you're pretty much out of luck. Random probation of supervisors for no reason I told him its a way to burn people. The manager doesn't like to confront ramp agents directly he leaves that to the supervisors, also the manager is missing for days at a time. When you file a formal complaint to the corporate office they go back and tell the manager then he tends to make it personal and out to fire you. When you want to take vacation you have to find someone to fill in your shift, isn't the manager suppose to do this? The manager is so desperate he's willing to promote a inexperience ramp agents straight to a supervisors line. Holiday pay isn't holiday pay its only 8 extra hours and you have to be there at least 6 months corporate says thats a benefit also.
    Workers pay checks are always messed up. Low ceiling for advancement you have to wait for someone to get fired to possibly get promoted. Training isn't conducted well at all. People get hurt too often at this particular station. Theres more to be said but trust me this is not a place to work if you're looking for a good ramp job or just a job at all. Apply for Southwest Airlines where the workers are treated like kings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Get trained you so you could at least know how to perform on the level of the supervisors.
    2. Keep religion out of the work place
    3. Show your presence more
    4. Promote to those that deserve it not people you only like.
    5. Show employees that there work is appreciated and not by cooking hotdogs.

    I have been working at JetStream Ground Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    With hard work and determination, you have opportunities for upward mobility. I started as a part-time ramp agent and eventually worked my way through the ranks to full-time, operations, training, and eventually management.

    Cons

    This industry can be stressful with an emphasis on safe, on-time departures. There is a lot of information to learn in training, but it's manageable if you pay attention and take good notes. You don't always get the schedule you want because the planes come and go at all hours...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be available and approachable to employees. Mentor and coach employees you see with potential to grow within the company.

    I have been working at JetStream Ground Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Dont have to worry about exposure to the weather unless needed. Not on the ramp doing strenuous work all the time. Meeting pilots and other aviation officials.

    Cons

    Pilots and crew can be snobby. Occasional working in the rain, extreme heat and cold. Routine getsd boring. Cleaning aircraft galley and lavs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise pay and /or get better benefits. These guys work hard on the ramp. They deserve better. Youll have better input and results if you treat your employees like you appreciate what they do for your company.
