I am thinking about applying for a part-time postion here in PHL as a CSA or Ramper. I currently have a regular job I work 7:30-4:30, Thursday - Monday. What kind of part-time hours are usually available in the evenings and what kind of flexibility (or lack of) can I expect? I was looking at openings with Frontier and AirTran, but maybe trying with some others as well (Southwest, United, American, British Airways, US Airways, etc.). Any kind of insight people could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Jeff

Don't count on a schedule that works best for you for quite a while. Plan on working weekends and holidays. It'll take a while to gain seniority before you can bid a schedule that you actually like.

Sorry to break it to ya.

exactly right. though, it's not my intention to descourage you. you may get lucky. the job is fine, granted that you are working with competent people. and the best part, you get paid to be around airplanes all day! let me know how it goes, i also work for US, although at LGA.

Part time work as a CSA or ramper is pretty tough to find. I actually just got hired as a ramper at SEA for QX. The first thing they said at the interview was, "If you're looking for a part time job, you're in the wrong place." Food for thought.

I was hired with US Airways Express in STL a few weeks ago. They're hiring part-time agents...
