Pros: free flights
Cons: not enough time to travel.
My average day in Aeromexico was to performed to duties of a ramp agent. Our job was to manage arrivals and departures within our turn time available. I was in High School at the time so I only worked part time. The hardest part of this job was the summer weather working next to large jets and hot engines above 120 degrees.
With United Airlines everything – more... was more professional. I learn everything from customer service, to almost every aspect of running an airline. I was lucky to be train in Hazmat materials, aircraft dispatching,ramp operations, weight and balance, communications, management skills to better understand people you work with.

I would get to work, log in my avaya and start looking for any pendings to finish, start the new day schedule of team work by completing several goals that had to be done (example: do 130 reservations per hour), have my 1st 15min break to have a little breakfast snack and chat with my co-workers about work and outside situations, I learned how to work – more... in a team enviorment, how to deal, uinderstarnd and know very quickly the clients needs, and to having to resolve any kind of issue or bad situation in the best possible way and always with a smile.

But after all that the best enjoyable is having the opportunity to travel around the world with a employee fare! – less

Union represented inflight employee (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – October 25, 2013
Pros: the ability to travel, meet new people, be active.
Cons: corrupt union. corrupt mgmt. no seats available to use travel benefits. hours.
I learned that after years of experience, a college degree, and awards for exceptional customer service; where you get in as a union employee is where you will remain; regardless of how many times you try to break free from wearing a uniform and paying union dues. You will remain there until you begin to ask questions. Don't trust the people that you – more... work with, union and management alike. The fact that as a union member you don't have to pay for health insurance is nice, but then again with the money that they pay you, you wouldn't be able to afford it. You do get a far amount of time off , if you so choose. You should expect to work all holidays and all times of the day and night, as the airport never closes. Just because you are supposed to get off at a certain time doesn't mean that you will. Management can make you work overtime. – less
