    I worked at Manchester Airports Group full-time

    Pros

    If COVID hadn’t happened I would still be there - but we all know the devastation caused by COVID to the aviation industry. Very good salary, excellent terms and conditions and no two days were the same.

    Cons

    Very stressful at times, dealing with up to 40000 passengers a day (before COVID) and having to explain the civil aviation rules over and over again to people who won’t listen whilst smiling and trying to be as pleasant as possible!!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Manchester Airports Group part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people you work with are generally nice

    Cons

    You're just a number to management and resources. Management are prejudiced and unfair. There's so many grievances taken out and negative workplace gossip by management, highly inappropriate. You're worked like a dog given breaks after 4 hours. Resources give you shifts with 11 hours between them even though you work nights. This company is corrupt.

    I worked at Manchester Airports Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    “Some” Colleagues & Managers, Decent Break Lenghts, Free Tea & Coffee, easy system for booking leave, Free Parking & Shuttle Bus

    Cons

    Some Bad Managment, Job Description Is Misleading, Training Support Poor,Outdated Training Tools, Only follow rules when it suits and make there own rules that they think can overrule UK LAW! Managers who think they know it all but are still wet behind the ears! DONT have any days off sick or you will basically be working that month for free by the time they’ve taken back wage & shift allowance! The Company like to believe your part of the MAG “family” but During the Covid Pandemic, Staff took a 10% Pay Cut, Whilst the CEO only took a 10% Cut for 3 MONTHS!!!, I’m sure he could have survived like the rest of the colleagues who took a years pay cut!!
