    I worked at Menzies Aviation part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    All kinds of penalties on late-night shifts make a very high pay.

    Too much unpredictability on freight forwarders. No matter how good you are, if the freight forwarders come late or warehouse guys are busy, they tend to make your day miserable.

    Advice to Management

    They did a good job actually.
