Does Menzies Aviation offer disability insurance?

Pros

LAS Menzies is a good place to work overall. The company is going thru changes right now trying to get better. Supportive Ops Manager who actually is willing to listen to you, fix issues and work with your schedule. 50% of the leads and fuelers are amazing. The ones who do a good job have advanced as leads etc. If you work here you have a split between those who like Menzies Aviation and those there to complain and just pick up a paycheck. Company provides, health insurance, dental, vision, 401k, paid vacation, disability insurance, life insurance for you and your family. If working outdoors in a physical environment is for you and you like aviation give it a shot. Overtime is available and so is coming in on your days off.

Cons

Other managers aren't responsive or gone all the time. 50% leads and fuelers are lazy and complain about what they deserve, what the company doesn't do but they don't leave and get another job. Fuelers can't show up on time or call out every week. Managers don't do anything about it. The equipment is often broken and our GSE could do a way better job. It would be nice to have proper gear for working outside in the cold, wind and rain. Especially rain gear.

Advice to Management

Could be an amazing place to work if they just fixed the toxic culture on the ramp. 1 out of the 3 managers cares and does his job. The other two managers complain about the company as much as the fuelers. Same for the supervisors and leads. If you want better performance, care about your people. Take a lesson from how the Denver station recognizes and pays their people. We are just as busy as they are

How are the career development opportunities at Menzies Aviation?

Pros

A lot of downtime. Pay isn't bad, unionized.

Cons

ALOT of favoritism goes on in this place. No communication between management and workers. No room for advancement. Managers/supervisors talk to you however they want. Long hours. No benefits. I would stay away from this place. It's a place to get back on your feet but do not try to make this a career.

Advice to Management

Stop being so cheap. Stay in touch with your workers. Without them you wouldn't be in the position that you are in.

No room for advancement.
