I have been working at DFW International Airport full-time (Less than a year)
If you have kids and want to spend more time with them, take them on campouts every summer, make sure you can afford whatever doctors they may need. This place can't be beaten.
I lost weight working here.
If you are looking for a front line job like customer service, security, or any hand's on work, then this is the best place to go. You will have much less chance of being laid off or outsourced than elsewhere. You can literally work here until you retire.
100% retirement match up to 7%. Vested in five years.
If you take a contract you can get stuck on contract for years.
It is not typical to get promoted. If you are looking for fast advancement, look elsewhere. If you have reached your Peter's principal point, come to DFW Airport.
Salary increases are 2-4% there is no reason a top performer would want to work here in a professional capacity. Professional and interchangeable jobs like finance, accounting, IT, HR, will most certainly be able to be paid better if they are great at what they do.
If you want to smoke or have a spouse, who works, on the insurance it will cost more.
Advice to Management
Management has made good progress communicating its intentions to headquarters staff. Frontline staff communication is difficult in a 24/7 environment of this size, but you can make it work.
I appreciate that EVPs participate in company sports leagues. That is really cool.
I applied online. I interviewed at DFW International Airport (Dallas, TX) in June 2017.
Applied in May 2017, got a phone call from HR about three weeks later and scheduled an in-person interview at DFW HQ. Interview was a two person panel, lasted about 45 minutes. They asked the typical STAR behavioral questions and then explained the duties of the job.
