Pros: flight benefits... when you can get on.
Cons: everything else
I worked as a flight attendant. The first 2 years you are their slave. They literally own you. The tell you where to live immediately after graduating the inflight program. You have 3 days to get to your new domicile and figure out where to live before they start working you to the bone. If it's the holidays, it's even worse. Be prepared to work around the clock due to delays and weather. You can work 4-7 days straight 12-20 hour days. No lie. And if the hours are "weather related," then are legally allowed to work you that long without overtime. Speaking of pay, whenever you are waiting in an airport or sitting in a hotel (sometimes for a day or 2), or sitting in the plane that's going nowhere, you are making per diem
($7.50/hour) ONLY. The hourly rate they advertise is only paid to you during "flight hours," meaning while you are in the sky.
Do not work here if you can avoid it. They care nothing for their employees. In the event of an emergency, such as my fractured knee (happened on the job, workers comp doctors disputed it. I was forced to miss 3 weeks, unpaid, without medical coverage) or your flight attendant roommate gets in a car accident (with a concussion, the dr advised me to watch her every hour that night to make sure she didn't die in her sleep)..... if you are lucky enough to get a crew support member who is kind when you call, what they are not telling you is "yes, you may drop this trip, but be prepared to be written up, and this stays on your record for 3 years.) You will be on probation for the first year at least, whether your behavior and attendance is – more... perfect or horrendous.
There will be days you don't eat, nights you don't sleep, and a lot of life lost in the process. You literally will have no personal life again, unless you don't mind missing a lot of work and being dead broke. Then again, the most I ever made after working there for 4 years was $21,000.... and that was working A LOT of trips and sacrificing my health (knee problems and migraines are common flight attendant maladies) and entire life (nights, holidays, weekends, relationships, etc). You will not be able to go to school, work another job, or maintain a relationship unless you live with the guy or he's a pilot... and watch out for them! Most of the time they're married and hooking up with many FA's.
Happy Flying!! You were warned. – less
