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.

Supervisor, DGS (Current Employee), West Columbia SCOctober 30, 2014
Pros: free flights
A typical day at work is when everything is on time. The management is very helpful and the hardest part is having delays. The most enjoyable part is the people I work with.

They Lied
Ramp Agent (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 28, 2014
Cons: they lie
united airlines lies not only to myself, but to about 90 others. We were hired and then laid off before probation was over. They used us just for the summer.

I was told that I was being let go due a "reduction in force" Meaning that they were closing stations and people had to go somewhere. And of course EVERYONE was going to move to San Francisco – more... right? I'M sure that United has hired a few people who know how to think and use their heads. I"M sure a couple of them have slipped through the cracks.
I can not recommend Untied to anyone. If they are hiding the truth from employees, I wonder what they are hiding from the customers. – less

Customer Service Representative/GSC (Former Employee), Dubai, DUOctober 21, 2014
Pros: on time performance bonus every month
Cons: unreliable manager
As an Airline Ground Staff it is a very tough job in the Airline industry. It focuses on safety and security of every flight especially in terms of passenger, baggage, cargo, catering the workplace and the aircraft itself. It has to be well coordinated in each department in regards with the movement of the flight. You have to plan and action accordingly – more... for any possible irregular operations in which your course of action will be measure on how to deal with difficult situation. The most part of my job responsibilities that I enjoyed most is the handling of a delayed or flight cancellations. – less

Customer Service Agent (Former Employee), Anchorage, AlaskaOctober 14, 2014
I worked 10 hour days but with the airlines you never really work a set ten hours because you really don't know what could happen during the day. Everyday was a new story and very busy . I learned a lot of positions while I was at United, I learned the operations department, the gate, and the ticket counter. I worked all around if i could. I was always – more... willing to help out and try something new. – less
