Sky Cab JobsSkyscraper Cars
Aerodrome jobs are worthwhile from a financial point of view, but work breaks your back.
Sky caps are usually located on the kerb of the airports to help with pockets and check-in travellers for their flight. You can also find a skycap in the luggage reclaim area with sweepstakes or trolleys to help you get luggage from roundabouts to taxis or their car. "If I don't want to, I don't have to use it, and I'm excited to be paying a man to carry my pockets - or to help me queue up for check-in.
" Unlike traditional saying, most Sky caps are not staff of the carrier - they work for airlines' subcontractors, who in most states give them the lowest salary for staff with tips - $2 or $3 per hour. Usually, the majority of Sky Caps work for the airline's subcontractors. However, a recent CBS MarketWatch piece entitled "The Ten Most Oversubscribed Jobs in the U.S." came in 7th - higher than the airline's pilot list, which came in 9th.
It' s so good money" "Most Sky Caps have been keeping their jobs for years because the good cash is so good," said Dave Clayton, CEO of Andy Frain Services, an Illinois-based airline offering Sky Caps to airline companies across the United States. "One good sky cap at a bustling aerodrome can earn between $75,000 and $100,000 a year, and most of that comes in gratuities.
There are several I know who don't even take the trouble to cash their paychecks because the advice is so good. And on a hard working sunny days, a sky cap could help about 20 travellers per hours. When everyone tipped $2, the skycap makes $40 an extra hour. For that. That'?s $320 in gratuities on an eight-hour working days. To be a skin cap is hard, bodily work.
Remember to spend eight hour s/day balancing oversized pockets in and out of the boot, showing confused travellers the way, check pockets and look for advice. When you check in at the kerb, be sure to tip a sky cap at least $1 or $2 per pocket. "SKYKAPS offer a value-added product so they can take gratuities, but they cannot request them," said John Kennedy, Delta Air Lines spokesperson.
I would tip at least $5. A very particular facility would require a tip of $10, even $20. A tip is advisable, for example, if you are too late to fly and a sky cap is checking your luggage and takes you to the start of the check-in line.
Or, perhaps the sky cap misses an oversized or obese pocket for which the carrier wants to demand an additional $50. Considering how much urgency it would take, if a skilled cap could have assisted you or an older person in a chair from the kerb to the gates at a large international airports, a tip of at least $10 or $20 would be reasonable.
