I serve customers at 10,000 feet.
Pros: free standby travel
Cons: long days, no set "breaks, " much time spent away from home
A flight attendant's day at work is always the same, and yet always different. This job has taught me patience, something needed when a flight is two hours delayed and customers are anxious about making their connections, along with humility and empathy. My co-workers have made the job worthwhile, whereas management has made it rather miserable. All in all, being a flight attendant is a lifestyle, as it requires being away from home more often than not.
