Job Culture
Management doesn’t recognise valued employees, and staff with higher duties, aren’t given the training and skill sets, to be able to lead a team.
This organisation has no set of values that are adhered to by staff. It’s a very unprofessional setting, run by Managers, who wouldn’t be able to lead pre-schoolers, let alone a promising aviation organisation.
Pros
Being able to work at the Airport.
Cons
Representing an organisation, where passengers are exposed to swearing between staff, being treated aggressively by supervisors.

Most toxic workplace ever, management incompetatance, favouritism, understaffed, high injury rate, pay is always wrong. Rotating shift rosters lead to poor work/life balance and rosters are always late! Steer clear!!!

Great team members. There ia always something different everyday. It is shift work. They do train you on site and help you with anything you need in your training.

Receiving an aircraft upon arrival and preparing it to depart again is a major undertaking, which requires the completion of numerous overlapping processes timed to fit seamlessly within the schedules of our airline customers. Menzies Aviation sets the highest standard in delivery of this complex service with clockwork precision, whilst simultaneously tending to a range of technical needs: in short, delivering excellence from touchdown to takeoff

Managers are under qualified often with insufficient experience and still like to micromanage, have no empathy toward staff (illness, death of loved ones, working back to backs illegally when it suits them), they favour the staff that sell their soul for a promotion (kiss butt & complain about the others to make themselves look good) . One girl used to write her own name down for shifts she knew were vacant without telling management and would get away with it.
Pay was pretty good and anyone who didnt think so are in for a rude surprise if t he y leave aviation and get a normal full time job that is the same entry level type position.

Rhw job it self was fun, not really hard worj just fast paced.

A lot of staff had very little intelligence but were hired becauaw they were attractive. -

The company will exploit you for anything they can and not show any appreciation for any of the hard work you put in.

Rosters are 100% inflexible... just had a kid "no you cant take time off work over Christmas, you're rostered on to work so you work"


Aunt or uncle dies. "no they don't count as an immediate family member, you cant take bereavement leave"


reporting safety hazards and bad behavior "oh well you cant see it on the camera so we will have a word to the person about safety" *does nothing*


Almost 0 chance for career advancement unless you are willing to completely sell out all your colleagues and kiss #$% 24/7


stay away

This company promotes people with poor behaviour and no experience. Management have no experience. If your not one to kiss butt, then they will find ways to get rid of you.
Pros
You get to see planes and people excited to go on holidays.
Cons
You do all the dirty work but no discounted flights, Poor Management, HR is even worse, New big Manager hides in his office, no lights.

Working at Menzies is funny, not to say otherwise.
They will make you lots of promises that will never become real, the hours a pretty poor and a horrible culture, people getting promoted without even learning the basics though, the management are never at the same page, for example the Operations Manager asked me why I was not wearing uniform, I just had to remind her that they never gave me uniforms, and she got angry at me, because of that.

Well, if you are thinking about to work at Menzies, think again.


The good side of it are the coworkers, 80% of them are good people.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Almost everything

Employees are micromanaged every minute of the day.
Very dog eat dog environment.

If you are a crawler or dobber, you will be rewarded, if you try your hardest - you will get walked over and ignored.

80% of employees are taking some kind of anxiety medication.

Pay is pathetic. A lot of the workforce receive approx $650 per week.

My advice? Don't go near them. I worked 3 years as check-in agent, and I am glad to be out of there.

It ended in the Fair Work Commission..... if that isn't enough to keep you away, then I wish you all the best.

You will need it.
Pros
Fellow Employees (except the snitches)
Cons
Pay. Hours. Management, Culture.
