    Pros

    Travel benefits and health insurance

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid, scheduling, probation period (9 months), short flights, planes are always on maintenance, union is awful. When you go to interview they tell you you are going to make 19.06. You start flying and you get your paycheck for your “guaranteed 75 hours” and you make anywhere from $480-$530. The company is so disorganized, you constantly have to tell scheduling what to do and how to schedule properly, they are always trying to work you illegally or do something shady. They also make you sit at the airport 4 shifts a month for 7 hours called “RAS or hot reserve” and you are only paid 4 hours of per diem. So you work a total of 7 hours and make $7.20. It is literally poverty level pay. I encourage you to stay as far away from this company as you can.

    Pros

    Great travel benefits for you and your family. Lots of latural job opportunities working as a ramp agent. Flexible schedule, you are able to give away your trade shifts, or pick-up shifts fairly easy.

    Cons

    Low pay, high employee turnover, company is always trying to more with less. Lack of manning can be stressful especially during the hot summer months.

    You Can't Make this Stuff Up!

    Pros

    Flight benefits are quite amazing provided you have significant savings or income from another source to support your travel bug. The job has the potential to be easy as there is a repeated set of steps required for every plane, not a lot of thought required. Unfortunately there is a persistent problem of understaffing and broken equipment that often makes the job fairly difficult and not without stress. Obtaining supervisor status, a couple dollars more per hour, does not require any people skills or demonstrated management talent. Quickly move up in seniority as half new hires don't last through probation. If you want to stay inside and play with your cell phone or watch a movie rather than assist on the ramp when a plane arrives, there is a good chance the supervisor would rather ignore you than face confrontation of asking you to assist. It truly has the potential to be a great work environment with outstanding travel benefits if there was adequate staffing, working equipment and skilled supervisors.

    Cons

    This is not a job to earn a living wage combined with the realization that even with promotion to a supervisory position would only elevate you to fast food worker wages. I cringe each time I see a new batch of new hires, knowing they will get no guided training, will no doubt be humiliated by incompetent supervisors as yelling is routine, knowing that half will simply not return after a short period. Employees have been chastised for trying to guide new hires as they are not certified trainers! With most lacking people skills and management talent, supervisors routinely ignore lazy workers rather than asking them to do their jobs. To describe short staffed as chronic is an understatement. A revolving door is needed to cycle all the people hired and quitting shortly thereafter. Unfortunately hiring new staff requires a crisis and unrest in the remaining troops. Fallen soldiers are not quickly replaced as replacements are not held in reserve. The staffing level reaches critical low levels, requiring extra long hours and mandatory work assignments from the remaining workers. After months of complaints and near burnout, a new batch will be hired. Half will not pass the background checks, 75% of those hired will not be able to ignore the public humiliation more than a couple of weeks and the process repeats. The entire culture revolves around rules and punitive measures. Rarely a day passes in which an employee is not written up or critiqued for the mildest infractions, yet deadwood employees are ignored rather than confronted. The best description of this culture might be "rampant apathy".
