Thank you for inquiring with the Metropolitan Airport Authority (MAA) of Rock Island County regarding job opportunities at the Quad City International Airport. There are a variety of tenants at the airport facility, and the Metropolitan Airport Authority (MAA) has nothing to do with the hiring of these various tenants.
The MAA does not accept e-mail attachments of resumes nor do we respond to e-mail inquiries about job openings. We do not post job openings on our website.
Job openings for the MAA are posted in the local newspaper (Rock Island Argus/Daily Dispatch) classified section. The MAA hires for the following departments at the airport: Administration, Airfield Maintenance, Building Maintenance, Custodial Maintenance, and Police/fire public safety. Custodial Maintenance positions are initially hired through the offices of Sedona and Manpower, in Moline, IL. Police/Fire and public safety are not “security” jobs, they are specific to that field.
Applications are accepted and are available at the MAA offices located in the terminal building inside of door #1. You may insert a resume if you wish. MAA office hours are Mon-Fri, 8:00 – 4:30 p.m. (closed noon – 1 p.m. daily, weekends, and major holidays.) Applications stay on file for 6 months.
Once again, the MAA does not hire for the tenants within the airport facility such as the airlines (counter/customer service, baggage handling), rental car agencies, restaurant, deli/bar, and gift shops. You may apply independently with those companies as they hire their own staff. The airline prefers that you fill out applications on-line at their respective airline websites.
The airport contracts with two local employment services companies to hire for jobs that are based at the airport. Manpower, located in downtown Moline in the Caxton building, screens & hire employees for exit lane attendants in the airport parking lot. Sedona hires part and full time custodial positions, curb patrol, wheelchair and electric cart attendants and skycaps (a.k.a. "customer care.") They are located off of 7th Street Moline.
