Edinburgh - stay away !!
Ramp Agent (Former Employee) –  Edinburgh Airport18 October 2018
Management are bullies and treat the employees with zero respect, forced to work long hours without breaks when you ask you get shot down and made to feel worthless don't ever get a thanks for the job you've done but criticised when you things go wrong that's outwith your control.

Horrible place to work wouldn't give this job to my worst enemy ! The company is a disgrace too you will be working 55-60 hour weeks and getting paid for 29-37.5
Pros
Cant think of any

busy but has its benefits
De-icing Co-ordinator (Current Employee) –  London8 October 2018
very busy work environment, workplace culture is better than some. the hardest part is not having the authority or being able to get a contact for someone to be able to make a decision. communication within the organisation is fragmented but all together an okay place to work.
Pros
great experience
Cons
long hours, communication breakdown

Very poorly run
Baggage Handler (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester19 May 2018
I managed 2 weeks before I left, run poorly, when you first start you get a white pass and have to be escorted everywhere only no one wanted to look after you so you got dumped on a belt and left there for all you're shift, no real training given, unsafe environment all round, if an agency try's hire you don't let them they rip you off from the word go! Good job for young lads who just wanna get on with it but if you are looking for career progression look else where.
Pros
Some of the staff
Cons
Management, safety

Terrible place to work
Ramp Agent (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester12 October 2018
Mangers are bullies and allocating staff are useless!!! If you want a ramp or bag hall job please don’t use Menzies. Absolutely terrible. Overtime is never paid and they can’t even get your basic salary right!! So if you’ve got bills to pay or children to feed this is not the job for you. If you like being spoken down to and bullied they this is definitely the right job for you

Dispatcher - British Airways (Former Employee) –  Edinburgh Airport20 March 2018
This company couldn't care less about staff if they tried. They allow bullying to take place and believe it is suitable to treat there staff like slaves

Company has a very high turn over of staff and even loyal members of staff eventually leave because they are that unhappy

I would never recommend anyone to work with this company especially in edinburgh airport

Bad morale throughout
Airside Ramp Agent (Former Employee) –  Manchester13 August 2018
Worked on the ramp at Manchester. Staff morale is so low due to long unsociable hours, poor rostering/allocation. Forget about a social life. Your hours will be all over the place and your body will be shattered due to the odd working times (0500-1400 & 2200-0200). Worst aspect about Menzies by far is the payroll. Very rarely will they get your wages right. don't even expect to be paid for overtime. Contacting them is a job and a half and even when you do manage to get through, they are absolutely useless. No extra rate for bank holiday or overtime, all paid at normal rate.
Pros
Interesting job
Cons
physically challenging, terrible hours, no overtime payment

company that only see you as a number not a person
PSA (Former Employee) –  Gatwick Airport Station, West Sussex17 January 2018
The overall working conditions are poor, as a PSA I didn't get the support that I needed , They rather put me out of the way due to my Bipolar. I wish that they had a better work life balance but the higher management are oblivious to this and rosta times and days all over the place eg 03.30 start till 12.00 one day next day 06.00 to 18.00
then 05.00 to 15:00 then back in at 03.30 and finish at 15.30
so your body has no idea what going on.
Pros
Good Supervisor
Cons

Passenger agent
Passenger Agent (Former Employee) –  Birmingham1 August 2018
Passenger agent is a fun and enjoyable job, as you come across different cultures. Time fly when you start the shift and help passengers completing their boarding process.
Friendly environment.
