Ramp agent/Cargo sales
Cargo Sales / Ramp Agent (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 19, 2014
I started in the office as a cargo sales agent. Managing paperwork,cargo documents and was required to log in entries into the cargorack system.

As the company merged with Continental Airlines I became a ramp agent which was very physical in comparison to the Office work. Guiding in planes, Driving many Air brake trucks, Placing and tagging luggage – more... bags into carts and into Planes.
I actually loved both equally. – less

well done
Flight Attendant (Former Employee), Queens, NYNovember 15, 2014
Pros: travel, meeting people, and the pay
Cons: living out of a suitcase, and many different shifts
Extensive travel and exposure to every type of person and nationality. I learn about different cultures and a great deal about communication, patience and team work. Management was great as they trained and then trusted you to get the job done. Co-workers functioned as a team which made the job easier. hardest part of job was all the different work – more... shifts and living out of a suitcase. The most enjoyable part was seeing so many different parts of the worl and meeting so many people. – less

overall i think i work for a great company but i do have to meet certain financial obligations
Ramp Service Agent team leader (Current Employee), Houston, TXNovember 13, 2014
i on a given day at united, situations can change at the blink of an eye. whether a last minute gate change or weather delays. in any case , adjustments have to be made and usually, with a great and enthusiastic team , it doesnt result in the negative.we dont just work, we talk about sports, relationships and politics to a lesser extent. i have learned – more... over the years that each person works different and as a leader , one has to make clear of his goals and objectives. the hardest part of the job is working short staffed during harsh weather conditions. however, as a leader , one has to face the reality of the situation. keep in mind no matter what the situation is, we always work safe. the most enjoyable part of the job is making sure the customers are happy , a simple thank you goes a very long way. also the company does gives incentives on a monthly basis and occasional burger burns and pizza day. – less

Highly stressed atmosphere with little stability in direction
Analyst (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 6, 2014
Pros: flight benefits and good medical benefits.
Cons: consistent change in direction given with little to no accountability from the top down.
Enjoyed working with different groups within the airline to get the job done. Co-workers and management all looking over their shoulders and afraid to take responsibility for any action(s). It's an extremely stressful environment with low morale.

Great people but poor job security
Ramp Service Agent (Former Employee), Buffalo, NYNovember 2, 2014
Pros: coworkers
Cons: the money hungry corporation
Challenging work especially in the winter but I worked with great people and we got the job done. Unfortunately our Union sold us down the river and we were outsourced along with 11 other stations with many more to come. Company replaced living wage jobs with poverty wages in order to increase their already record breaking profits.

Airlines are economy driven.
Maintenance Contract Manager - Sales & Marketing (Current Employee), San Francisco, CANovember 2, 2014
Working sales and marketing in the airline business is always exciting. Everyday is different due to nature of travel. The economy dictates the nature of the business more so than some other industries. The public will element leisure travel first when the economy slows.
