Pay and Benefits
This position is covered by a collective bargaining agreement and the pay for this position is $15.00 per hour.
Medical, dental and vision benefits are provided in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement and may not be available for all positions.
Per the collective bargaining agreement, work schedules are awarded based on seniority. New hires are awarded their initial shift based on operational need. You will be awarded a full-time or part-time shift and you must be able to accept the shift awarded to you.
Work schedules are set, 5 days on, 2 days off. Shifts do not change unless there is an operational need.
Part-time is 5 to 6 hours per shift and Full-Time is 8 hours per shift. Based on operational need, you may need to report to work early and/or work beyond your scheduled end time. Part-time employees may be extended to full-time hours based on operational need.
The airport is busiest in the middle of the day (typically 9am – 4pm). Nearly all new hires are awarded shifts during this timeframe. If you have a full-time job during the day, please consider this before applying.
If You Do Not Reside on Kauai
If hired, based on operational need, you will be required to report to work early and/or work beyond your scheduled end time. Those who plan to fly to get to/from work would have difficulty reporting to work early, which is a restriction in availability. It would be difficult for us to consider you and encourage you to monitor our careers website for an opportunity based on your desired work location.
