    Pros

    Working outside. Colleagues. Dynamic and fast working environment. Potential additional earnings through working overtime. Being part of an operation and solving problems that arise.

    Cons

    Shift pattern can be tough at times. Weekends are very very busy. Contracts are likely to be altered with little benefit to the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Good people, guaranteed job if you are willing to work. Free flights, perdiem when asked to work another airport somewhere else in the country.

    Cons

    Ramp area was recently acquired from Servisair. After five months the benefit package from Servisair has still not been rolled over into Swissport's package (which includes a higher wage). Summer is the slow season for the flights we service, so everyone is cut to 20 to 30 hours a week. It is back breaking work handling 300 to 400 pieces of luggage per day and minimum wage just doesn't cut it.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than being nice people who are fun to work with, work on getting the employees' pay increased now, during the slow season when you have your dedicated employees.

    Pros

    if you are over the age of 40 but younger then 50 do not apply....they discriminate! If you are a White American born and raised here, Do Not apply- you will only get passed up for employment .

    Cons

    I was told by of the hiring manager, that the older 58 to 60yr old European manger, thought I was to old......I am 24yrs younger then her. I have not seen 1 white American working at the Seattle Branch.... Discrimination at its fullest....tell me again why we allow foreign companies to operate in the USA? To think my father, brothers, uncles & nephews have been in the military to protect our nation from such acts of racism....yet here I am getting discriminated against, well EEOC here I come to file a complaint.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest not discriminating against a American who's roots have been here before the constitution of the United States. I would also suggest loosing the bias attitude, or perhaps go back to the country where you came from, this discrimination Will Not be Tolerated! Welcome to the USA

    Pros

    If you need/want a check, and wanted to be treated like a slave. This is the place.

    Cons

    The incompetent management team. They only care about flights getting done on time.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to LEARN how to talk/communicate BETTER with the employess. They talk down on you like you're beneath them.

    Pros

    The pay is not that bad for a part time job. As well as being offered many benifits that other jobs such as insurance and other coverages.

    Cons

    They over work you to the bone. They will take advantage of you as much as possible and refuse to give you overtime because the supervisors get a nice fat check at the end of every month. Better yet you have to constantly check you pay stubs because if you do go into over time they choose to NOT pay you. If your a student they tell you theyll work with your college schedule but they will completely ignore it when you bring it up.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your greedy supervisors and be more thoughtfull to your college students. Unlike most of the older people working not all of us want to waste away at the same job year after year.
