Pros: fast pace, highly energetic positions
Cons: not knowing if you would be able to sit and eat lunch, medical/dental
Every day at Silver Airways was a fast paced, energetic, talking/eating/working on the run type of day. I had never worked in the airline industry, so I walked in the door with zero knowledge of how a airline was run and operated. The level of understanding I walked away with in one year was great. I was allowed to interview, hire and recommend employment releases. I learned how to budget three divisions allotted funds, manage a team efficiently and take charge of the office when my supervisor was away.
The Vice President I worked for was awesome! She was patient, taught me a lot in a very short amount of time, and entrusted in me to run her divisions smoothly when she traveled.
The hardest part of this job was never knowing how long I would have to work. Sometimes I would work a nine hour day, others 16...you just never knew.
I enjoyed learning new responsibilities. The turn over was high, but working with people from all over the world, being able to use my personality at its best; priceless moments.
