    Pros

    The job itself is fun and gives you a good introduction into the front lines of Airline operations. On a good day, the people can be a lot of fun and you meet a lot of them. Also, the flight benefits are a nice perk, but many additional perks including discounts on hotels/cruises/rental cars have been stripped away through the years.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected and distant. Many times they're not even visible. I can distinctly remember several times working when an upset customer asked to speak to a supervisor/manager and there literally was not one on duty. Only two customer service supervisors, one for the morning shift and one for the night shift. Also, the schedule is always subject to change and the scheduling method is old and inefficient. On more than one occasion an employee's schedule changed without proper notification to them (such as changing it on their day off.) This caused staffing shortages and led to the self-perpetuating high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better scheduling system. No employee wants to be subjected the inconsistency that is self-induced. Also, create a position for a relief manager. Each supervisor has two consecutive days off, so that's four shifts a week that are not covered right off the bat.

    I worked at PrimeFlight Aviation Services part-time

    Pros

    You can meet celebrities and new people.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible, and they expect you to do more then what your suppose to do in your job description meanwhile you don't get paid for it. The hours are long and you only get one 45 minute break compared to other airport workers.

    Advice to Management

    They need to become more organized, they need to pay their workers at least a dollar above the minimum wage, and they need to give their workers at least 2 breaks within the 10 hours you work.
