Major responsibilities

An agent’s shift at UGE could include anything from checking customers in at the ticket counter to unloading bags from the airplane’s cargo hold. The conditions and tasks vary, but they always have the same goal: delivering the highest quality customer service while meeting the highest performance and safety standards.

When customers arrive at the airport, they look to our agents to assist them with reservations, baggage, mobility services and any other questions or concerns they may have.

At the gate, agents manage the boarding process and help customers in the event of operational challenges by rebooking and determining alternative flight options.

Employees are also responsible for the safe and on-time journey of bags. Agents accept, tag and safely transport and load baggage and cargo.

The work environment can present unique challenges, including noise, weather and operational demands.

Once agents have helped all customers board the plane, they finish loading the baggage and close the cargo door. Then it’s time to marshal the airplane to the runway and prepare for the next arrival.


Applicants must be able to lift baggage up to 70 pounds in the lobby, planeside and in the confinement of an airplane’s cargo hold.
