Hello Anutters,

Friday I have an interview with airTran for ramp in DFW via telephone. I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice they could pass along to me. I work at DFW as it is, so I know how it is out on the ramp. I'm hoping to get it as the company I'm with eho does contract work for AA, and I don't think we are going to be around much longer. So wish me luck of not joining the unemployment line!

Wish you lots of luck. Airtran is actually quite an exciting company. I interviewed with them and was offered a management position, but things didn't work out for me. They are a vibrant young company however with a good outlook. Having some personality is definitely a good thing with them.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

My company does primarily cleaning. We have a base at LUV field as well. I currently change out the onboard sales recorders for the Flight Attendants. I also supervise over some of the operations in the dispatch office for the crews. Pretty stressful job at times. Nothing like you being a pilot though haha.

Slaps forehead! My fault though. I'm really not a pilot (Ok I do have a PPL w/IR, but that doesn't count). I just picked an idiotic name when I joined this site, not thinking that it was such an obvious misnomer. A WN7 series is a type of Prop-Bearing Seal. A driver of one of those can be the tool used to force it back in, or the tool the rest of the guys in the hanger duck that job out to. Can you guess which one I am, lol.

I picked up that as a nickname where I apprenticed for a summer almost 15 years ago. I really need to see about changing my screen name, lol.


Anyway, that sounds cool. My job has me over in E terminal a lot at DFW there. I always thought that US station has some pretty cool people working there.

Update in case anyone cares haha. I had my interview, and I fly out Tuesday, out of DFW for my drug testing and finger printing. I will then leave DFW on the first week of June for two weeks of of training in Atlanta. I'm already loving the part of this job, which of course is flying. This must be the most expensive drug test I have seen by far haha.

Hello,

glad I found this thread! I have a management interview next week with Airtran, I'm with another airline right now as a Customer Service Manager. Can you give me any pointers/what to expect? What type of management position did you have to turn down? I'm being interviewed for General Manager/Duty Manager spots.

I have joined the airTran team. 14 people where interviewed 4 were hired, 3 passed our drug screening and medical evaluations, who would have thought to be a ramper all the paperwork, and pre qualifications would be so frustrating. I will be flying into Atlanta in June for 12 days for training. It's a relief after such a strenuous search for employment, I finally got the job I wanted. So to my fellow co workers, greetings from the new fish. Any tips for training? On a funny note, while I was getting drug screened in Atlanta, Southwest Airlines called me in for an interview, 1 week to late.

Good for you US! My brother whom is being wrapping up 6 years in the Army will officially be jobless in 3 months but luckily DL and AirTran had a few openings at their GOs with corporate security. Has an interview wit DL next week and AirTran a week after that. Lucky guy!

I interviews with Airtran as well but this was about 3 years ago. They seemed likea great company to work for. Unfortunately I wasn't selected but got on with ASA just 2 weeks later.

Best of luck!
