Pros

The job is a part time job which makes it great to be a college student or have a second job. You know exactly what you have to do. It is a physical job so you easily get into shape while working there. You can be trained and work more than one area, if you desire. They teach very good safety policies. They have excellent benefits. There is a variety of personality types which makes it fun. It takes a lot to get fired. Which is a pro and con. They have no problem with you calling out so long as you communicate with your supervisor. (except during Peak season) Raise after 90 days and then at 1 year.

Cons

People who shouldn't be working there stay for the benefits. So sometimes you are working with people who don't care about anything there, which makes it frustrating for someone who actually enjoys being there. Some days you only work 2 1/2 hours so your paycheck is often times small. If you are not following safety procedures it is easy to become injured. Sometimes there are too many people and not enough work so you stand around watching other people. Because employees can join the union, lazy, unsafe employees can continue working long after they should have been fired.

Advice to Management

Flight ops needs to be more on top of things and not wait till the last minute. Crews could be better prepared if we knew information in advanced. Ensure that all supervisors actually cared and are continually review safe work methods instead of only when the Safety auditors are coming. Safety policy is in place for a reason enforce it. Find a way to fire the employees who really shouldn't be working there even though the Union is protecting them.
