No, they'll hire you if you pass the background and drug tests. They will then, most likely, make you attend a class on airport operations and take a ridiculously easy test.
Depends on the airline. Most airlines don't even start your background check until you're in training (Mainly so if there is an issue regarding something on it, the person can have it dealt with ASAP.), most of them do the wizz quiz prior to training class starting (When I went through ramp training @ FL
, they actually did it the first day of class. Had us line up outside the bathroom and went in one at a time.).
The above quote may be true with some 3rd party handlers, but for many airlines, the training lasts from as little as a week to as long as a month (When I went through training @ EV
, we had one week of classroom training, followed by two weeks of OJT [which also included classroom time as well]. I was the only one in my class that was released from training after three weeks, because I had already had experience on the ramp; the remaining members of the class spent another week in training before being released from training.).
