Payroll Administrator (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON7 June 2018

Enjoy the flex hours.
A lot of pressure and not enough hours in a work day, thus lots of over-time.
Pros

Great job, company needs work
Ramp Agent (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC4 June 2018
As a ramp agent, i loved doing the job!
The people were always angry at Swissport (every shift)
There are no advantages of getting your Airport Driver licence (except you do more work)
In the afternoons, there was never any equipment so before you can even do your flight, you had spend +1 Hour just searching for anything you can use

The company was always in disarray. Always short staff (meaning you do more work always).

Fun job but can be very challenging because it seems Swissport doesnt care.
Pros
Fun job, great gateway job into Aviation
Cons
Short staff, missing equipment

Love what i was assigned to do....BUT
Ramp2 (Former Employee) –  Enfield, NS/ Halifax13 May 2018
The worse management I have ever worked with, supervisors are bullies and harrase workers., physically mentally . Don't waste your time on this place as you will leave very discussed. Very very poor union staff. These billing and harrassing was brought to main office. No one ever gets fired or even spoken too. Very ignorant to newbies. Very poor work place .
I learned that you trust no one, not even your union rep .I also learned that mangers didn't care about any of us . I quit...
Pros
Get uniforms
Cons
Needs people who kmow what they have to do.ie supervisors

Not in touch with today's wages or employee moral
Tanker Driver/Aircraft Fueller (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC24 March 2018
The management structure leaves much to be desired. In an effort to build redundancies within, no one takes the position of leadership. Rather the team has no idea and is in a state of confusion. The right hand has no idea what the left is doing.
Pros
Unionized
Cons
Us versus them mentality.

Hard word when your busy but allow you to relax when you have downtime
Chief Shop Steward (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB3 March 2018
Hard place to work due to inclement weather . due to the type of work you can learn alot of transferable skills that will help you move top other departments. Management is good but very complacent in the positions held and therefore are not interested in change . The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing you could flight on stand-by when you showed up and worked when it was tough weather for all.
Pros
Down time you are allowed to go to full gym help encourage fitness
Cons
Extremely bad weather in winter and heat in summers as well as shift work .

potentially great place to work always something new to do or learn.
Manager on Duty (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC3 March 2018
Swissport is a very large company world wide but the management style has to change or they will continue to lose ground to their competition who have made great gains lately . As a large company they have potential for advancement and innovation but these things seem to not be their priority and it shows in the lose of business to other companies.
Pros
large company with chances for advancement
Cons
long hours with not much chance to change .

Je ne recommande pas cet emploi.
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Quebec City, QC16 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.
Pros
Équipe merveilleuse
Cons
Patron et échelle salariale

fun workplace
Passenger Service Agent (Current Employee) –  Dorval, QC12 February 2018
It is a fun workplace for students looking for a part time job. You have to be ready to work long and unusual hours such as 02:00 to 14:00 (really early in the morning). The salary is not high enough for the job and responsibilities you have but if you really enjoy doing your job, the salary is not that important. The most enjoyable part of the job is to be able to have lots of fun while you do your work. The supervisors are amazing and funny people to work with and everyone is very friendly.
Pros
if ever you travel with the airline you work with, your ticket could potentially get upgraded.
Cons
long hours, no flight benefits

Typical slave roles
Baggage Handler (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 February 2018
Long hours and very minimal advancement for any position. Most people who work here are 40-50+ and that gives new recruits no room for any promotions due to senority
