Pros: great people, flight discounts
Cons: long hours, difficult times/days available to work
Working here was a fantastic time for me. I loved my coworkers, and working with the airline, crews, and aircraft. It does not support work life balance because starting out you have no time off and can be reprimanded regardless of the reason (medical, etc.).
I do believe those who work these positions should be better compensated. $8.50 an hour seems minimal due to the amount of responsibilities, stress, and demands of the job (depending upon location).
