    Good for a entry level job. Great coworkers you make a lot of good friends. Learn a lot of knowledge about the industry.

    Cons

    Management could be better. No raises. Most employees are overworked and underpaid. Long days huge workload. Too much micro managing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees an annual raise and most of the good workers would actually stick around.

    Pros

    potential growth company in the air cargo sector.

    Cons

    working conditions at the cargo facility were in such poor condition the fire marshall was going to shut the entire building down due to electrical and safety concerns.
    relocation rates which were current in the 1970's, not 2013/14. you must pay all expenses out of pocket, and then wait 60 plus days to be re-embursed. transportation, meals, housing, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you are going to attract future talent to manage this station, keep your word, and disclose how the station wasn't taken care of for years prior, and how poorly the staff was treated by upper management, with little concern for the employees deplorable working conditions.

    Pros

    Being contracted to American Airlines in Texas.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING. They don't pay overtime as required - have to go through the Bureau of Labor to file complaints. They ignore federal salary laws - claiming people as salaried employees to prevent paying overtime when the wages don't meet minimum salaried employee rates. They don't pay for health insurance so employees pay full cost - at the minimal wages they give this means over half a paycheck goes to covering one individual; the entire paycheck for an individual with one child. They don't monitor the third party vendor covering their health insurance - benefits not started or stopped on time, payroll deductions messed up, and notifications of eligibility not sent. General managers assigned multiple contracts on different sides of the airport so they don't pay attention to any of the harassment complaints about supervisors, hours for the contract aren't properly covered, payroll complaints, or insurance complaints. Worst communication ever! The supervisors will post a schedule, change it, and not inform employees of the changes or post an updated schedule, then attempt to reprimand employees for not working as scheduled - including firing employees unjustly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a human resources course, listen to your employees, quit assigning general managers to multiple contracts, learn how to communicate, learn what a staffing model is and how to use one, and read up on federal labor laws!
