Customer Service (Former Employee) – Quebec City, QC – 16 February 2018
L'équipe de travail à l'aéroport de québec était super! Cependant, le patron n'est pas flexible sur les heures et l'échelle salariale est très nulle. Il est presque impossible d'augmenter de salaire même si cela fait plusieurs années que tu travailles la Que tu aies une famille ou que tu sois aux études, il est impossible d'avoir de congés ou d'enlever une journée de travail pour te consacrer à tes études. L'emploi est génial mais le patron laisse vraiment à désirer.
this job isnt really that good, i wouldnt suggest it to anybody, the management is terrible and let anyone get away with anything, the union is terrible they dont actually know how to protect there employees the way they should. the pay wasnt enough close to a decent salary compared to the rest of the airport
Agent de cabine (Former Employee) – Dorval, QC – 21 January 2018
I enjoyed my time working for the company Swissport. I learned that working as a team is enjoyable and that cleaning which is one of my skills can actually be fun when working in a positive atmosphere. I enjoyed the long breaks and most of the leads were great! I hope in the near future I can join this work environment again but maybe in a different field.
Lounge Agent (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 January 2018
Working at the lounges are a great place to work and the hours are not guarantee but you would have to bid schedule base on sonority. Management needs improving but workplace culture is fantastic. Salary/Benefits you have to keep an eye on because they are always making mistake when it comes to paying out.

I absolutely loved my job. I really enjoyed interacting with the customers. I enjoyed working in an airport very much. I felt important I felt like i belonged. The only problem was that I was working minimum wage which could not pay the things that I needed to pay. I ended up working crazy hours just to be able to live with the bare minimum and still struggle.

The Colleagues and team are key to a good healthy workplace. I was lucky to have a very supportive team. There are some challenges and require cooperation among stakeholders to improve the environment.
Good people, Staff and Clients
Fast pace, and clock is always running for on time performance
Ramp Attendant (Former Employee) – Toronto Pearson International Airport, ON – 24 November 2017
If you love long hours of break, this job will fit you perfectly. In an 8 hours shift, you would most probably just work half of the time and just chill on the most time. It is a minimum job, but can open you to many job opportunities at the airport.

There is a lot of things you can look at while working for swissport. Your typical day at work consists mostly on the go and not stopping until you finish your job and head home. The best thing about working with Swissport is meeting a lot of new people and new faces pretty much every week to month as the turn-around is much greater due to people coming and going. The management part of swissport is which you don't want to politically involve yourself in unless you are ready to be taken on a roller coaster ride as you are given minimum tools and are required to do the job in best/worst of the weather. The workplace culture is non-existent as a unionized environment you have no say pretty much anywhere due to all the politics of seniority and all will make you feel like you're doing the job yourself as oppose to "TEAM" work that requires a healthy workplace. There is no hard part about the job as everything is as simple as it can be and if you are a quick learner you will pick up things well otherwise you will have hard time adjusting in there.
Experience to operate the machine/vertisorter/conveyor.

o Ramp Agent (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 October 2017
Swissport is part of a union and this means that the salary is competitive for labor and that you do not get overworked and stressed. Working there was fantastic and they even extended me to a student line when i had gone back to school which rarely happens.
