Fun workplace, very practical
Passenger Services (Former Employee) – Sydney, NSW – 14 January 2016
A typical day at work with Menzies Aviation at Sydney International Airport consisted of working and assisting with travelers and families as they make their way to aircraft and of on their adventures. In this role, I learned how to assist people with disabilities and how to communicate with people who are not fluent in English, how to use reservation and booking system software such as Galileo in order to check customers into their flights, how to assist people with baggage problems, and also, key information on the travel industry.
My co-workers were lovely people as they were very friendly and welcoming of me to the job. They were also very helpful if I needed assistance with any of my duties. Management was exceptional as they were very welcoming of myself to the company, and made sure I was comfortable and had the assistance I needed if I needed help.
The hardest part of the job was always being on your feet for long periods of time, walking from one side of the busy airport to the next, and then back again. Although, I must say it was very enjoyable.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work at Australia's busiest airport and experience what it is like to work in the travel industry. Also, being able to communicate with people from all around the world making their way in and out of Sydney. Lastly, it was enjoyable to work with a range of different airlines such as Fiji Airways, Thai Airways, Delta Airlines, Etihad and United Airlines.
Fun working environment, working with people from around the world, working with airlines, friendly co-workers and management
