Our Ramp Agent Mission
Extend soulful hospitality to our guests --- and, enjoy doing it; Work hard --- create value for our guests;
AND Care [genuinely!!!] about the communities we serve and the place that we work
The ramp agent [also a part of our Guest Service & Freight team] has primary responsibility for assisting with all freight, and ramp activities associated with guest departures/arrivals on flights to/from our Fairbanks-based terminal.
The ramp agent is a frontline embodiment of Warbelow’s mission of soulful hospitality, hard work, and genuine care/concern --- it is the relationship that the ramp agent builds with each guest, one interaction at a time, that ultimately transforms our guest service mission into an everyday reality for our guests.
A successful ramp agent is detail-oriented, great at working independently without supervision and as a team member, outgoing, likes to help others, and has a consistently positive outlook on life and work.
The Perfect Fit
An individual who: genuinely cares about and enjoys serving people; likes to work hard [not just in concept, but in reality!!!]; thrives on work requiring serious flexibility and multi-tasking; views favorably the idea of having a physical labor component to their work day; thinks aviation is cool; and, finally, loves living in Interior/Arctic Alaska and is very excited about the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with the people and communities we serve.
