    Pros

    fligth perks, buddy passes. thats about all you can really hope for working here. and spouses and parents fly free.

    Cons

    manual ot, favoritism, racism in Newark Airport , Cargo Dept, and ramp agents. low wages , unrealistic work expectations, hostile enviorment (employees vs managers or make sure you cover your ass because they are trying to get you ). all for about 12 bycks an hour. not worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat EWR like the other airports and make it a comfortable place again.

    Pros

    * They take care of their employees, whether it be pay or just caring for the employee.

    Cons

    * Most management positions you have to deal with a Union. Constant redtape and bickering.
    * Entry level employees don't understand what they have - a great chance for advancement, pay, etc.
    * Health benefits can be a little pricey

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the drawing board with the Union - get things like discipline & FMLA/OJI Terms a little more in the clear. Too much gray area and the employees and Union take advantage of that.
