The Ramp and Customer Services Agent is often the first person from Horizon that our customers will meet in person. Not only is customer service very important, so is the ability to work in physically demanding and varying weather conditions. One moment a CSA is scanning people on to a flight and the next, they are repeatedly lifting 50lb bags on and off aircraft or de-icing an aircraft 30 ft in the air. Then going back inside to help customers with a smile.
This role is perfect for someone who can work flexible hours. Perhaps you have your own business and can schedule around your hours. Or you are new to the workforce or starting a second career. If you?ve worked outside or in physically demanding conditions with some customer service computer oriented experience, then this is the job for you. It?s hard but also very rewarding. Opportunities for advance exist for everyone especially those who excel at their performance. Exceptional attendance and reliability is imperative. Strong computer skills imperative.
Work outdoors in all types of weather conditions - duties include baggage and cargo handling, aircraft marshaling, and aircraft deicing from 30 feet in the air.
