Company morale is extremely low in the fueling department. Very bad management and every day there is a new problem that supervisors are expect to go above and beyond to solve with little to no support from management. Problems that befall management take months to solve if solved at all and everyone from the supervisors leads and fuelers are to bear the brunt of it. Little to no appreciation for hard workers. Very tough environment at times due to the weather, time sensitive nature of every task with constantly failing equipment for not enough pay. The definition of a revolving door. 4/5 employees quit or are lt go within 6 months. Very few people have over 1+ at the company.
Pros
Weekly pay, hour breaks with downtime, If you like aviation and working at airports its great, Overtime (limited), meet some really good people here
Cons
inconsistant policies, Constantly failing equipment, Toxic environment, Non union employees at risk of being fired at a moments notice, nobody takes responsibility, Very bad management, Mandatory overtime, Backdoor politics, Union does not care.

At first it seems a good company but it's very hard very understaffed and cannot keep people long no prospects of promotion. The shift managers never forward complaints and there are loads average time new people stay a week or until they get another job
Pros
There is none
Cons
No time for the wok force under staffed and seriously over worked staff turnover is amazing

Working at the airport was so much fun. My day started setting up the counters and stanchions and getting called for arrivals, to help deplane/guide passengers. Then spent some hours in the counter or kiosks helping passengers to check-in and later on, go to the gate to assist with flight departures. Also had to accompany minors or people with disabilities to the gate and push wheelchairs, so you need to be physically able to walk long distances and multi-task.The best part are the colleagues I met and the good friends I made. It is true that is not organized, but employees are the key to make things work. I did enjoy working with Swissport despite the chaos.
Pros
Easy to trade or give away shifts, free uniform, fun and friendly environment, they made events for employees.
Cons
Low salary, benefits after several months, big responsibilities, schedule changes, absenteeism, stressful when cancellations or delays, passengers complaining.

This company rewards the warehouse workers more then the Ramp Agents. Its sad that they get the same pay as someone who is outside 10+ hours a shift in the cold, heat, rain and snow. And to top it off they took a Dollar from the ramp and gave warehouse a $2.50 a hour raise to make it fair. I ask how is this fair? While they are nice and toasty in a warehouse while ramp agents are dealing with 20 below weather and snow?
Pros
Health care
Cons
Low pay for the work

I really enjoyed working at Swissport Honolulu. My supervisor, lead mechanics and co-workers were easy to work with. I learned a lot from my brief time at Swissport. Good equipment and working conditions. Lead mechanics and co-workers very experienced, helpful and knowledgeable. ETOPS predeparture checks, line maintenance, assisting with cargo service checks and driving push back tug were part of my daily workload. This was one of my best aircraft mechanic employment experiences and I was very disappointed on having to leave.
Pros
great working conditions, management and co-workers
Cons
break room and locker room needs to be remodeled

Swissport as a company doesn’t communicate well with its staff especially with the current issues with corona. That being said I enjoyed my roles as dispatcher then operations supervisor and then operations team leader, the progression through roles can be very quick for people who are dedicated and willing to learn. The people I have worked with over the years have become great friends and made the early mornings a lot easier.
Pros
Great people to work with in my experience
Cons
Early starts, poor communication from management

Pay was too low to recommend anyone to work there. Although they have a lot skills you can learn while being employed there, it is in my opinion a mere stepping stone for other opportunities
Pros
Easy to get hired and there are a lot of skills to be learned that you can take somewhere else
Cons
Low pay

For most part job is easy and people that work there are great. Upper management is clueless and HR doesn't know what they are doing. They seem to make up the rules as they please to please whom they want.
Pros
Boot voucher, decent pay
Cons
Mandatory OT and always short staffed

The people who work there are amazing people but the management and the company itself is not very good at looking after their staff. Very much favouritism and who can excell if you can know someone higher up. Your abilities and skills doesn't count but if you are friends with managers then you can progress. Hardwork is not seen in this company, not flexible with parents who has children.

I was part time but worked full time hours (40+) and received no benefits. The whole operation was unorganized, people showed up to work whenever they felt like it and we were left with 3 people to set up for an upcoming flight.
Pros
Good money, Easy and simple work, Good coworkers.
Cons
No breaks or lunch when there are back to back flights, Inconsistent start times and hours.
