My KCM badge has not worked since early December. Several emails to I.T. has only acknowledged my email. Crickets. I am unable to confirm my employment on the KCM website. I have been informed that they are aware of the problem.
Crickets everywhere.

Baybum I had the same problem last week. Switch your employer to "Polar Air Cargo" and it worked. Not sure why it got switched but that's what fixed it for me.

The KCM barcode card is just a convenience and not necessary. Just show them your passport and crew badge and they punch it in manually. I don't even carry the bar code card any more. Manual entry has worked for me every time whereas the bar code scan was hit or miss.

That worked, thank you Bruin. The bar code scan was also hit or miss for me too. Now when I go to the KCM stand do I tell them Polar Air Cargo?

Same for me. sometimes it works on scan number one, at most I've had to scan it 5 times. they always try to manually enter it to help me. heard from a rumor that it was a problem with our IT department

Have you guys reached out to the Jumpseat Committee?...it might be something they're working on, and if so, this info may be useful to them.

I just went through the SFO KCM checkpoint in civilian clothes. Yay. No problems. This time. It seems to be 50/50 success rate. I looked at the computer screen on the way through and it showed Atlas Air.
