This is primarily for US carriers...

Does anyone know what the starting wage is for US carriers. I'm mainly interested in ticket counter/gate agents. I'd be interested to see the difference between an LCC, a regional and mainline...

Any information is greatly appreciated.

regards,
Richard

How would AirlinePilotCentral.com help someone looking for a job as a CSR?

Expect about $9.00 to $22.00 an hour over a ten to fifteen years years. AirTran is $9.10 to $18.00 an hour over thirteen years.

Everytime that I see these figures, I ask myself why anyone would stand at a ticket counter, interact with a typically non-inspiring public for 8 straight hours and take home $65. Unless, of course you don't need the money and just do it for the kicks of working for an airline and it's travel benefits. I mean you can't even afford to buy yourself an airport lunch on that salary.

One of the funny things about the HP/US merger is the completely different working cultures. On the US side, most employees are full time and they work for the money as well as of course for the benefits. On the HP side (at least at the hubs) you have a majority of part-timers bent on trading shifts working lots of doubles in order to get as many days off as possible to actually fly places. So at HP, most of us work as little as possible just for the flight benefits... so I can tell you why some of us do it. The ones at US who were used to better pay, did it for the actual job moreso... you find a lot less part-timers there. Anyway I sort of rambled on, but that's my two cents.

When i was employed by an airline not too long ago (have since been layed off) I worked there because I enjoyed it. Irate passengers were not an everyday occurance, the majority were a pleasure to work with. The one's that were irate, weren't irate at me personally, they were upset at a particular situation, ie cancelled flight, I never took it presonally. I guess I rambled on as well...


Thanks for the replies all, waiting for more...

regards,
Richard

When I worked CS and Ramp for ACA in JAX, I was making roughly 13.00/hr. However I had about 4 1/2 years seniority at the time. I started out at 8.00/hr on the ramp as an agent. Most airlines are in the $7-$9/hr range depending on the job and the location. If you live in a generally low cost of living area you are going to be on the low side of the payscale. However I am now a F/A and have a pretty much good idea of my salary for the year.

For a lot of them, the alternative is a grocery store for a top out pay for $7 to $12 and no travel benefits.
