Ramp Agent (Current Employee) – Las Vegas Nevada – 11 January 2014
A typical day at this job is, you come in, look at a flow chart to see whom your on a team with, or whether you are a lavatory technician for the day. And it goes down from there. You will either be servicing lavatories, or uploading and downloading aircraft. Depending on the schedule you may be in the mornings or at nights cleaning the aircraft. For me I honestly like this job, whether or not I get payed 9.50 to do it. I wish I could work for an actual airline. But with the way the economy and such is right now. or was previously. Everything here for the airlines is all contracted out. Working for the actual airlines is actually pretty scarce, as there are really only a few airlines like Delta, American,US airways, and Southwest, they actually have their own people. But for the rest there are only contractors to work for. some which pay less then what Airport Terminal Services. I like this job, I really do. I get to work on the ramp like I have always wanted to. I get to enjoy seeing aircraft going in, and out of southwest, and spirit. But I always see it and will never be able to work for them as they never hire!
Down time when flights are late or when there isnt a flight coming in.

I love working physically so this job is pretty good when you love working outside in any type of weather. The only thing is you cant work a full straight 8 hours at morning because they have a split shift shift.
