Working at Menzies has definitely taught me a lot about the airport. I have learned of the clockwork that makes the Swiss clock, that is Pearson Airport, tick, and I myself have been been a cog in it (at least in terminal 3). I have learned all of the procedures of the WestJet ramp operation, and have become rather adept at it. The management has a large role, and most of the supervisors try their best to keep everything ticking smoothly, but their success at keeping functional time relies on their foot soldiers, the ramp agents, who work day day-in and day-out in conditions of all sorts, for less than adequate wages. I have met many people here, and these people are what kept me going during tough times, when the manpower was at a low, and when the workload was seemingly unbearable. I have learned a lot working at Menzies Aviation, and I am ready to implement what I have learned here in further ventures, and hopefully learn more along the way.
overtime, people, new knowledge
low manpower, underpaying, strenuous
