  8. "Flight Allocator"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Menzies Aviation full-time

      Pros

      Its a good working environment with good teams. You get to explore different aircraft types and configuration and liaise and build rapor with airlines and third parties. Its very challenging and requires someone that handle pressure and quick to solve problems

      Cons

      Unsocial working hours, possibilities of finishing work after 11pm if flight arrives late and has to go back out on the same night. No formal training given, you learn on the job by shadowing others.
