A typical day would be receiving cages of goods to be delivered to retailers stock rooms where they would sign for it on delivery hand held palms. when they have emptied them you go back & bring back to delivery bay ready to go on lorry.Dealing with retailers was for me the best part as I enjoy talking to people & solving their problems if I can. Hardest part of the job is sometimes the cages can be a bit heavycan be a bit
Pros
Great when everything is on time
Cons
Have to rush when it’s late

Poor management never checked on mental health or home situations of employees, just scrutinised them for being 1 minute late or making a small mistake.

Our management worked directly for the airline, constantly bragging about the perks and free flights they would receive. As handling agent staff we wore the uniform of the airline but received no perks.


Our shifts were all 4-6 hours which meant we were never entitled to a break. No opportunity to go full time. All overtime was taken by casual 0 hour staff who sometimes ended up working more than us on part-time contracts
Pros
Some nice co workers and good airline to work for
Cons
Poor management, no breaks, early starts, short shifts

Good place to work. Different every day. Shifts not suitable for everyone. During the summer months a lot of overtime is available. Own transport required.

Swissport were welcoming, and the team I was in were mostly nice people. The management were helpful. The hardest part was sitting around waiting for flights to come in. It was enjoyable seeing the planes come in and go out especially ones we had cleaned. We were part of the process. Also the team was good fun to be with.

the job is fast paced and can be very stressfull at times especially in the summer season
unfortunately low moral and a lot of disgruntled staff

Pay could be a lot better to represent the risks and responsibilities of the job

Not paid enough for a dangerous job. No perks and not looked after or treated as a person. Very sexist and male orientated. Irresponsible people in management roles.

They condone bullying and racism, it’s brushed under the carpet by poor managers who have their favourites. No work life balance, treat staff dreadfully, have no clue on employment law - No breaks and no minimum turnaround time on shifts. Long term favourites pick and choose shifts and your left with what’s left. ABSOLUTELY NO CONFIDENTIALITY VERY BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH -MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY

1. A Typical Day at work - Expect to push beyond the expectation. A flight requires 5 man's gang. But mostly you get 4 men with 1 TRL. Which means 1 person in the hold to offload more than 100 bags and two to put the bags on truck and leave the bags to Baggage bay. But on a relaxed day, there's less flight and less stress.
2. What I have learned - To be honest I haven't learned anything which can boost my resume. But apart from the resume, I have learned to work in less resource and push beyond the limit.

3. The hardest part of the job -

a) Working with less man in a gang.

b) Working in the hard weather - especially in a rainy winter season. with wet gloves cold wind and heavy bags with less visibility and slippery gloves.

4.Most enjoyable part - A relaxed day with good weather keep you fit and happy. Duty-free shops with a special discount on Christmas.

Not everyday is the same. You come into contact with so many different people. Between staff and passengers, it becomes a family the airport is a friendly place to work. It can also be stressful if airlines have any delays
Pros
Fun to work in the airline/airport environment
Cons
Working hours unfortunately aren't the most sociable

Swissport Newcastle has zero clues on how to manage staff. The worst place I’ve ever worked. The staff are amazing they are ruled by a tyrannical management.

Cons
Management wages shifts

Unfortunately paid minimum living wage which is poor as the job does carry a certain amount of responsibility ie. Drunken/drug passengers, bomb threats.

Great team of people, 4 weeks of training include 2 weeks classroom based and 2 weeks shadowing another colleague.


It is hard work, but great fun. My ideal job.
