being able to see how the aviation world works
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee), Yellowknife, NTMay 13, 2013
Pros: learned alot about aviation
Cons: 10hr days on saturday with 5 hrs of idel time
a typical day was getting to work with a a diverse culture of people everyday from all across the world, I would check customers in and when all have checked in we would go to the gate and 1 would take the tickets and chq id and input to the computer and 1 other would take the passengers out to the plane even -50. The manager was in the office a lot – more... but was always there when need be. we had 2 coordinators that ran the show and they were amazing always helpful. the hardest part of the job was telling someone the flight has been cancelled due to weather and next flight in 2 days. for me the most enjoyable part was meeting different people of the world listening to the stories they had but the best was being outside watching the planes take off and land – less

Busy Real Estate Office
Administrative Assistant / Office Support (Former Employee), Elmira, NYJanuary 28, 2013
Pros: worked in a nice area of town minutes from home to save on gas cost
Cons: no benefits at all.
A typical day of work was answering phones, filing, lots of data entry and communications with Real Estate Agents. I learned a couple new data bases on the computer and some advertising with local newspapers. Management did not communicate very well. No paid holidays, sick time or vacations. Co-workers were nice and I got along with them pretty well. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was the customers and working with people. – less
