This part made me chuckle:

I interviewed, had a medical and was hired. I had to move from the west coast to Atlanta and showed up for my first day of work wearing a suit and tie thinking I was hired on for some kind of office/managerial position. When showed up for my first day of training I found out to my surprise I would instead be working the ramp. I was disappointed at first but after threatening to quit my manager told me that after 6 months I could apply for a position higher up. My duties included baggage handling, push backs and operating deicing equipment, which I carried out for 6 months.

Good on you for sticking it out. Dispatcher sounds like an interesting job.
