    Pros

    co-workers, working around airplanes

    Cons

    probably one of the worst places I've ever worked, hr doesn't know what they're doing, supervisors don't know what they're doing they constantly give you the run around and it will takes days for you to get the right answer please heed the other reviews they are all true. bad company to work for

    Advice to Management

    Get better employees who actually know what they're doing instead of it taking weeks for your employees to get stuff done

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, laid back environment if working late. Co-workers of same level are fun to be around and talk to.

    Cons

    Leads are awful, most coordinators are awful, supervisors are a joke who need to get something better to do with their lives with the exception of Don. Awful place to work. Most of the supervisors don't know anything! Favoritism and racism is incredibly big in this work field. Higher-ups brag about how much work they don't have to do.

    Advice to Management

    Retrain your supervisors and coordinators, crack down on racism, make sure everyone puts in an equal amount of work.

    Management was terrible and always yelling at employees, most coworkers were kids who were as young and childish as could be, management, low pay, and management.

    Pros

    Easy, Fun, i like most of the people i work with, working at an airport is definitely a great experience,

    The supervisors definitely play favorites, if you're a female is is extremely hard to get noticed or professionally respected. The work environment is not professional at all.

    Advice to Management

    Have better schedules, lower health insurance cost, better opportunities, don't be so biased toward male employees.
