Hey, I am thinking about applying to work with PrimeFlight @ DAB. Anyone here who works for them? Anything I should expect?

Thanks,
Adam

Adam,

I know someone who works over there and says it's a lot of hard work. I think they pay $8 an hour, but I could be wrong. Apparently they have been pretty short-staffed lately, so that means a lot of long hours tossing bags.

Yeah, I would get the 8pm-"close" shift if i get a job over there. However, I've heard rumors DL is going to add a 1:45am arrival flight... I wont be working there if thats the case.. besides that, I'd welcome a tough job like that. Want to get some ramp experience for when I apply for a FBO job back home for the summer....

I take it it is loading bags. It is very hard work, or can be depending on which operators you handle. Charter = bad, business travellers = good. I gained quite a bit of muscle weight during a rather short stint. 40 metric tons of bags lifted during a shift was not out of the ordinary. Long shifts, bad hours, poor environment, injury risk. It's not something you want to do for a long time, but it is a good experience to have.

Cheers,
Fred



I thought I was doing good trying to avoid those airport hotels... and look at me now.
