Swissport has a very high staff turnover.
Advancement within the company is quite easy but positions are poorly paid for the high level of responsibility

Job review
I really enjoyed how variable the job was, and most of the people are great, the hours/ days off are very unsociable. I was never approved holidays or days off, which ment I had to ask people for swaps and to cover and chase around managers to see could it be signed off on! Every single day I had off I was asked to work and I was hounded for a day or two before your day off been asked to work it, and the pay definitely isn’t worth it! No perks either .

Wasting time
Not professional, not educated enough, no manners, shouting at staff. Leads, supervisors and managers are lacking skill. Very disappointing place to work.

Stay away
Disgraceful company to work for, 4 hour shifts starting at 5 or 6 in the morning for low rate an hour. Supervisors very un-professional, treat staff very badly. Anyone I know that works there is constantly sick, I would put this down to the continuous stressful envirnment with no support from management!

Very poor company to work for
Worked for swissport for about 8 months. At the start all seemed OK. Until a few weeks in that is. I was left to run the maintenance in the whole airport by myself with no help. If u ask for help your looked at like u have 5 heads. Communication between some work colleagues is very poor. Some people would rather see you struggle than help you. Equipment is as old as My grandad.

Horrible
I currently work in Swissport every day is a battle with management low pay low moral bullying by managers constantly fighting for a break your intitled to and sometimes 6-7 hours on the ramp before you get in for a break sometimes you wont even get a break. Ramp Managers do nothing but bully one in particular. They grind you down till you can take no more. No praise given for the good work done a

Enjoyable work, poor company though
Job is so different to any other job and while the work is hard it’s quite enjoyable. However, a lot of the guys who are above ramp agents are bad mannered, verbally abusive and discriminative towards agents. Very few staff members are willing to help anyone due to the toxicity there. High staff turnover is a direct result of abuse and unwillingness to help or even be polite. Roster is all over the place, no pattern or consistency and this could easily be resolved and would be much more efficient for the company by freeing up allocators time and happier staff can’t hurt performance....
When you meet good guys here though they really are the best!!!!


Things that need to be addressed:


Roster

Work relations training definitely for team leads/supervisors.

Consequences for abuse/discrimination at any level.

Pay

Breaks should always be given for health & safety purposes due to the manual aspect of the work.

Shadow training for new staff...even for a day or two.
Pros
Some great people, exciting role
Cons
Roster, management & pay

Nice job, not to good organisation
This place has alot of hope for it only if small changes are made to make staff happy , would result in less staff turn over. Would cost less for company. Also if roasters where looked at more closely could make staff happy , and less wasted time.
Pros
Great people, nice environment
Cons
Times do not make life balance outside work good.

I worked there for while and never experienced managers screaming and shouting and swearing at their staff. Very non - professional and salary is low
I worked there for a while and never experienced managers screaming and shouting and swearing at their staff. Very non - professional and salary is low. And supervisors are not trained for this position, badly organized. They don't know how to do the job the same as their managers. I realized I'm too good and knowledgeable to waste my time in this place. Never ever again.
Pros
none
Cons
Everything needs to be changed in this company.

Aircraft Cleaner
Swissport is an excellent company to work for.
We do many different things each day with many different roles such as cleaning and security.

Every day in swissport is different. I really enjoy my job but just feel I need to go elsewhere for experience.

Bad management,lazy old staff rostering issues no social life
Do not work here if you want to be treated as a number or be valued as an employee , management is poor & have zero indication how to treat their staff or communicate correctly with them, if you go to speak about an issue with them It’s put on the long finger or deal with it yourself. Rostering is awful you get a weekend off every 6 weeks and u spend most of them working as you never get ur contracted hours in ur roster so you have to make them up by working extra days you can sometimes get no 11 hour gap in ur days and most times you will finish on a late and start on an early early, there is no staff appreciation you can work a long day helping out a delayed flight no management or supervisors to be seen anywhere no Xmas party’s no Xmas bonus not even a sandwich , you receive calls on your days of begging you to work because they have a constant turn over of staff most people not lasting very long, a lot of lazy staff who just sit sending emails or pretending their busy in an office who are trained on multiple airlines but are never rostered onflights and basically given what ever shifts you want, don’t complain because you will be punished request earlies you will get lates request more hours they will drop them..,DO NOT WORK HERE!
Pros
Amazing staff who work hard
Cons
List is to long
