HORIZON AIR STORY
Horizon Air: behind the name are men and women with a "can-do" spirit and a passion for excellence. Launched in 1981, Horizon Air provides service to cities throughout California, Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Baja California Sur (Mexico), and British Columbia and Alberta (Canada). Together, Horizon Air and sister carrier Alaska Airlines serve more than 90 cities and are subsidiaries of Alaska Air Group Inc. (NYSE:ALK).
It's a heartfelt approach, as much as technological innovations and customer-pleasing onboard service, that is at the core of the "Horizon experience". This has brought us national and international recognition: Horizon Air was named "Regional Airline of the Year" by Air Transport World magazine in 2007 and was also ranked among the top 10 domestic single-class airlines by Travel+Leisure magazine readers from 2002 through 2009.
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 that you can schedule around your Horizon 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 required.
