    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Qantas part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Staff travel. Lots of down time. Working outdoors. Working with great people and mates. Probably the best high standard training available. A very safety conscious company to work for. Free parking at airport. Free uniforms. 5 weeks holidays

    Cons

    Shift work. Poor life balance. Revolving door with staff. No full time jobs. Working in the rain. Weather related flight issues which will put you under the pump at times. Useless management who have no idea how the ramp operates. Poor outdated equipment. OT goes to fulltimers first. Earn rubbish money for what you do. Hard to progress up the ladder or to get other jobs within. You are just a number at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Give part timers who have earned their stripes a fulltime job. Stop employing managers purely on their past academic grounds as they have no idea on the actual job they are managing. Update ground equipment.
