Security Ambassador in Manchester Airport
on 12 September 2023
The hardest part of job
Stressful work in a very busy airport. Tiring shift pattern. Night shifts , early morning shifts, mainly weekends, Bank Holidays usually at work. Despite 3 breaks for full time work, still a difficult working pattern. Mostly standing work, lots of heavy lifting of passenger bags. Low pay, high targets.

Run by accountants,
It's changed, all about money now, as with any workplace you are just a number. Management just treading water looking after number one. The hours are terrible, annulized shifts are disgusting, it's no wonder they can't get staff.

Good place to work
It can be very busy but work place is fun and you become part of the airport family.You get to work early shift such as 3am start then transist into later afternoon 1pm and ends 10pm.
