Airport Ambassadors help airport employees to see the airport from a passenger’s point of view. Many Airport employees experience this situation every day: travelers assume, that everybody in a uniform works for this thing called the airport. In reality, that is not the case, because airport employees, even though they work at the airport, often don't work for the airport, but for many other companies. Especially passengers in a rush tend to ignore this fact and often blame airport employees for not doing their job, while in fact they are doing their job and not someone else's.
Still - we need to consider the airport as one “whole” thing that tries to get passengers through efficiently.
Courteous, swift and secure is one of our motto's. So, if a passenger asks, if the flight from JFK is delayed and the response is: “I don't know. I am the coffee maker at this airport.” the answer is correct, but not satisfying. The trained response would be to take an interest in the passengers question and then trying to find the answer.
To train other employees in pretending “they know” is the Airport Ambassador's job. Through “role playing” and other exercises, they will show the other airport representatives, how to handle the most common stress situations in their jobs - machine breakdowns, severe weather conditions and rude people.
To apply for this position you should be energetic, convincing and already work at the airport.

While your first thought about an airport is air travel, ground transportation is pretty crucial to all operations of International Airport Montello. In addition to driving on main street, you have to be able to navigate off road terrain. A positive attitude (or indifference) towards long-distance surface transportation is required. International drivers license a plus.
You don't have to be a nerd, but basic knowledge of software supply, cross platform traffic, spy ware management, WIFI signaling, power decentralization, wire organization, access control, virus circulation, hub coordination, download management, number trading, further messaging, file queueing, system fragmentation, firewall engineering and general computing a must. Be available day and night.

Big muscles and a strong back, organizational skills and mental alertness are indications that you might be the one!
Luggage Handling includes heavy lifting, luggage X-Ray screening, computer tomography scanning, occasional supervision of sniffing dogs (either K-9 units or the Beagle Brigade) as well as the ability to evaluate the answers, passengers are required to provide to the following questions:
- Has your luggage been in your possession at all times?
- Has anyone given you anything or asked you to carry on or check any items for them?
If you are interested to find your way into this position, you must love the arrow. In the vast, open spaces of International Airport Montello the arrow will make the difference. If there is an arrow, there will be a destination. Without arrows, passengers are doomed to navigate through nowhere. No arrow, no flow. The appearance of arrows will transform this place into something truly international. Everyone from everywhere can read the arrow, understand it's meaning and follow it’s direction. It is the power of this straight forward looking sign, that will keep passengers and airport employees alike in motion.
The perfect applicant must have a good sense of direction and own a reliable GPS system.

This is a strategic key-position. As part of our non-flying airport staff, greeting officers are usually the first local officials passengers encounter after arrival. Right away, greeting officers will let everyone know, how it is to be at International Airport Montello. They set the tone. The strategy they use to welcome and guide passengers, will institute the authentic atmosphere that distinguishes International Airport Montello from many other International Airports.
Greeting officers wear a neat and clean uniform, and at all times, must be able to exhibit agreeable facial features. A somehow dynamic, likeable personality and basic knowledge of formal communication procedures are appreciated. This position is fun but not easy. You definitely have to say: “Howdy” more than once per day.
The Job Description for this position is still under investigation.
Here is an airport insecurity game available for the right cell phone. To be played at the cell phone booth while waiting for a flight?
I think, someone with the name of JACK would be good for this position. Because, when you see him, what do you say to him?

This photograph just recently submitted to SECURITY shows this man, just minutes before, in the IAM lounge. Do you believe this is the same man that had just applied for the AIRPLANE MECHANIC position?
2006/02/08 Yes, it is the same guy. He just grew a beard. We handcuffed him in the Transit Lounge the other night, because he resisted applying as an airplane mechanic. Anyway, now on the job, we'll put him under surveilance. — Security Department (nightshift) 19:34
You have to be good at “getting the picture”. From blips on a radarscope, you have to be able to visualize the relationships these blips have to one another on three dimensions. Persons who ware skilled in chess or bridge, a card game, make good controllers. The ability to plan moves in advance is critical to winning.
So far, we recceived two applications for Tower Control.
“Montello Tower, Nevada Airlines 111, ready for take off on runway 01”
“Nevada Airlines, taxi into position, and hold”.
(check radar, look on runways, double check)
“Nevada Airlines, cleared for takeoff.”
(Nevada Flight 111 eses into the air)
“Nevada Airlines 111, contact departure control.”
(The co-pilot on the plane moves a dial that changes the radio's frequency.“
“Montello departure control”, says the co-pilot. “Nevada 111 is with you!”
Both applicants made a really good impression during a first training session (held in Wendover, UT and Montello, NV), but we can never be sure enough. Therefore, we have to bite into the sour apple, and run additional tests - again verifying the applicants abilities in spatial perception, vision, hearing, speaking skills, etc… (If training seems tough says the FAA, it's because it is tough.)
So, if anyone has any idea of how to test the applicants more thoroughly – let us know!!! (management – 12/09/2005)
Hello!!!! (did you switch frequency?)
Any evidence of my application being processed? In any case I would like to add an update: In the last 2 weeks I have logged a total of 6 hours listening to live monitoring on http://www.ATCmonitor.com and made a sketch of how it all works. I can report, the talk is really fast and kind of dry, mostly numbers, abbreviations and codes, of which I am able to understand between 20 and 30 percent. franzy - 2006/01/19 21:59

Lost and Found
You work as a clerk. In regular intervals you receive articles lost within the IAM facilities. You inspect these things. Then you tag and place them in drawers, shelves, racks or a safe, according to the type of article and where and when it was found. If identification is known you speak directly, telephone, send emails or letters to owners and arrange a return. If identification is unknown, you investigate further and discuss lost articles with all airport personnel willing to share their opinion. If despite these efforts, owners can't be found and lost articles are not claimed after pre-determined time period, you put them up on ebay.

Today the Maintenance Crew dropped of an ancient looking reptile, - it is kind of irritating to see such an outdated animal in and on a modern airport. — Franzy 2006/02/08 09:43
On the other hand there are birds living inside the JFK Terminal. But birds at least have some aerial connection to an airport. Maybe a new symbiosis between nature and technology is starting? ( → Lizzy) — hajoe 2006/02/09

Hi Ed, do you need to eliminate that bat? It's a good navigational addition. Animal echolocation. It just doesn't work too well, when there is a lot of wind and the plane becomes faster than sonic speed. Then, by the time the echo from the bat's emitted soundwaves comes back, the plane is already gone. So, the FAA says, it's not reliable. But I think, a backup bat is better than nothing. What's your opinion on this? — Franzy 2006/02/09 21:58

This position has long hours with possible overtime and it might not sound like an amazing opportunity, until you read this:
Brazilian airport worker who returned lost money meets president.
(Publication: Airline Industry Information, Issue: March 26, 2004)
“A Brazilian airport janitor who returned USD10,000 lost by a Swiss tourist was received by the Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva yesterday (25 March).
The 55-year-old janitor was praised by the president, who said the man was “an example for all of Brazil.”
The man - who earns about USD125 a month - reportedly found the money while cleaning a bathroom at the Brasilia Airport.
If situations like that occur within IAM facilities, management would need to inform the janitor that there is no point in even thinking about keeping USD10.000 or meeting President Bush. IAM Janitor Tools
Where is he?
We are still looking for him! Did anybody CK the Cowboy Bar? Darla 01-15-06
Great you got the tools for the janitor. One step further in polishing these shiny floors. Now, someone just has to grab the opportunity and start mopping.
This is an international airport. Some people are slow in understanding. What does CK mean?
— eteam 2006/01/16 16:34 CK is short tex message term for “check it out”. Red 02-04-06
Thanks Red for this explanation, now my brain can rest. I thought of 'contact', 'caraoke', 'carbon copy', 'see karl' and what else… but all this didn't make any sense. — hajoe 2006/02/04 20:40 The Janitors job has been extended, he has to clean out the shelves in the basement, too. Sorry for the extra work. ==== Bird-man or woman ==== Birds present a major hazard to aircraft, with the majority of birdstrikes occurring during the landing or take-off phase from an Aerodrome. It is therefore essential that all Aerodrome Operators have robust procedures in place that are specifically tailored to their own airfield in order to mitigate against birdstrikes. As a bird man or bird woman, you have to know (or invent) ways, how a hazard can be identified. You then have to execute the methods which you choose to employ in order to reduce birds both on and around an Aerodrome. for more information on this job position see: http://cartome.org/jfk-strike.htm maybe these guys are potential candidates here ==== Foreign Object Damage Prevention ==== http://www.boeing.com/commercial/aeromagazine/aero_01/textonly/s01txt.html ==== Luggage Wrapper ==== Job Description:
If you think, excellence comes as a standard, you should apply as a luggage wrapper operator. The luggage wrapper is safe to the operator and is designed to eliminate any risks and chances of malfunctioning. In addition, it is very easy to operate, so virtually anyone can do it.
The machine (not you!) will wrap various types and sizes of luggage. Due to the dusty conditions at International Airport Montello, travelers will appreciate this option. (and tip!) In addition, luggage wrapping is a strong theft deterrent, because after sealing the luggage with the transparent stretch film, address labels cannot be removed and replaced by a thief. On the other hand, once the luggage is claimed by the rightful owner, the plastic layers can be easily removed and placed thereafter for recycling in the identified place at the airport premises. All you need to do after a nice working day is wrap up your tip and go home.
