    I have been working at Allied Aviation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people are pretty casual and nice. Working around aircraft. Also, a good foot in the door to the aviation industry.

    Cons

    Worst paying job I've ever had. It can be somewhat laborious, especially for such low compensation. Working on all weather conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Up the pay, no one who lives on their own can live off of it unless working a lot of overtime. Hence l, the high washout rate.

    Pros

    They work with your schedule. they allow shift trades which can be convenient

    Cons

    The Pay is not on par with the level of responsibility with the job. there is a lot of disrespect from management to supervisors and employees

    Advice to Management

    If the roguish ways of the company don't get cleaned up there will be a big problem. sr management is not involved at all, has the if i don't know the i wont be held accountable attitude

    Pros

    It's a good job to get on your feet. Lots of overtime. Double pay on holidays. Easy job as a whole.

    Cons

    No raises. Union is basically non existent. Working in different weather. The fueling trucks have no ac or heat or defrost.

    Advice to Management

    If raises were promised then deliver. Duty manager loves to come and tell you what you are doing wrong but when all is well he gives no praise.

    Pros

    decent insurance, paid vacations,

    Cons

    Management blames you for everything when something bad happens, don't receive bonuses for all the struggles you go threw all year. upper management assigns your shift and you cant do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    upper management need to take care of the lower management better by giving us incentives to perform better. Sometimes feels like a dead end job.

    Pros

    Get paid weekly. Cheap insurance. Work with a brotherhood. Lots of overtime

    Cons

    Where to start. You don't get paid for what you do and that's basically doing the supervisor's job. Whatever the airline says goes which means your wrong on anything. You'll have more knowledge on things than your supervisor s and managers put together. If you kiss tail you'll go a long way in the company. To sum this up , allied aviation does not believe in or back their employees

    Advice to Management

    If you don't want another fueling company taking over or a strike on your hands, I'd suggest you start taking better care of your employees whose built the foundation for what this company stands for(Allied Aviation Houston Division) for starters. People work hard just to see a $3.00 raise within the 10 years they've work for this company. But who am I to tell you what's going on

    I worked at Allied Aviation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can practically sleep on the job ( which isn't a pro IMHO ). You get to work on airliners if that's a passion of yours. The people are nice and all but they don't really care about you at all. Be there on time when your supposed to bottom line.

    Cons

    No advancement. At all. You make what you make and you put up with cold in the winter, rain, and exhaust fumes constantly for extremely little pay currently 14.25 per hr. It's not a bad job but the pay is low for what you need to have. CDL license with Hazmat and you have to pay for the airport ID and background check out of your own pocket. Management is composed of people who have never fueled a plane. Ever. They just drive around their pickup trucks backing up trucks. C'mon man! No promoting from within. Overtime is mandatory because of their high turnover rate. Sure you can work double shifts but why put your health at risk working 16 hrs a day inhaling fumes all day and managing headaches from the exhaust gases coming of these planes. Like I said, its a job but if your into dead end jobs and getting sick then go for it. How can airlines sell the public on safety when you practically work fueling aircraft for such low pay. As if that's not enough, there are airport rules you must follow that are not part of the job description like acting as security and facing ridiculous fines if you don't "challenge" people without a badge. That's the security guards job. Not the fuelers. Not worth the commute.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. Such greed! It would be an enjoyable job if the pay was right. At least give your employees an incentive to put up with all the fumes and weather. Make people who have actually worked on planes and put in their time in supervisor positions. It may be an easy job but, your paying for the license that they hold and their good record. TSA wont give just anyone access to an airport.
