    Pros

    Was enjoyable working in and around the planes, and there was a lot of downtime to take it easy after your flights were worked and finished.

    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,

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Great pay rate for LAX. We are the first third party contract for airline customer service here at LAX for Menzies Aviation. We are in constant interaction with our office managment, so there is always an open ear to any concerns you may have.

    Cons

    Not much flexibility on giving away shifts or shift trades. So be mindful on how you use your vacation time that you accumulate.

    Advice to Management

    If they can work out the shift trade policy then it would be a BLESSING

Being a girl u can get raped during work hours in the pit of the planes and nothing gets done about it... O yeah u end up getting fired, so don't bother telling any hire up cause its a waste of your time and there's.
