Fun workplace

It's a part-time job. Everyday you need to do is to check in the customers. you have to check their travel documents to make sure they are ready to fly. Also, you have to check in their baggage and ask the safety questions. Everything is about safety. When you have questions which you don't know, the supervisors and the managers will help you to solve and explain to you that what you need to do next time. There are few agents but a lot of customers. Therefore, you need to check in fast so it don't make the customers wait for a long time. I enjoyed doing this job because I can face different people and problems everyday. It makes me not afraid of facing people.

Everyday is a learning process & enjoyable

A typical day at work before flight will conduct briefing and remind the teammates, company expectations and any special requirements for the flight regarding with special meals, card members and passenger who need special assistants during the flight. Through the years I have learned to be positive, and open to any suggestion given by our teammates regardless what rank they were in my team. Coach any teammates and offer help when needed without being asked. Working with different nationalities always a challenge and always be polite and respect others. The hardest part of the job when dealing with unhappy passenger and I always tried my best to rectified the problem within my capabilities. The most enjoyable part of the job when passengers came to you and said thank you for the flight and you know your teammates had delivered "Service from the Heart. As a manager of the flight I believe my teammates do not work for me but with me to give our passengers the best service they deserves when flying with us.

Pros

Good travel benefits, working with different teammates daily

Cons

At time long hours

Productive and teamwork environment

It was a grateful experience to be part of the Cathay Pacific Cargo team, and I really learned a lot from them. I learned how to deal with different types of people and to work under pressure. We have a happy environment and we work as a family, the hardest part of the job is to handle delayed flights and to assists our clients concerns but after that we are very thankful that we survived and finish our task and responsibilities.

Pros

free breakfast

Cons

long hours

End of Outport Bases

Management is no longer moving forward with outport basing and results in the halt of any advancements with no positive future for crews. Multiple plans to close basing and will result in losing jobs. Outport bases are on high risk to close down. Company is no longer making money not due to competition but to management decisions on product purchases.

Pros

Life Style

Cons

Progression

Productive and great experience with the customers from all over the world.

In Cathay Pacific, their value is wealth traveled. I started with working as an check in agent. And now I am the bagroom coordinator. I've learned that how to deal with the problems with passengers when our flight was canceled, or delayed. When I work at arrival, it's important to greet our passengers with a big smile when they walk out the aircraft.

The cabin crews are super nice and friendly , always seeking out helping the passengers to enjoy the flight throughout the flight.

Pros

Less salary and poor management

Salary- Minimum pay, more skills won’t get more pay Benefits - 90% destinations for staff air ticket, standard pension, medical and dental, parking fees needs to pay half of it from your pay slip Working hour - about 20 hours per week, 8 hours more a day will have overtime Working environment - many senior staffs who have more benefits, somtimes are unfair, fast pace working environment that needs to think and work fast and solve problem by your self sometimes, barely chance to get higher position and more salary Management - messy and unorganized, sometimes staffs don’t know what to do. Management also barely listen your opinions just do what they think is right.

Pros

Staff ticket 90% destinations cover

Cons

Less chance to get higher position and more salary
