IThe job of a flight attendant can be the best of both worlds. But it takes a certain type of person. It is exciting, adventurous and spontaneous,
Flight Attendant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 4, 2017
I went into this job as a young girl with a wild spirit and yearning for something exciting in life.
Training isn’t easy, ( if you don’t really apply yourself)
Don’t come to work there if you have the attitude that
“Sorry, that is not in my job description “. When I went through training several years ago, everyone in the whole company was a team. You lived by the golden rule. What comes with the territory is reroutes, late flights, disgruntled passengers, irritable co-workers, and mechanical delays. This is why your pay scale grows so fast, medical emergencies, this is what you are paid for- the things that COULD HAPPEN!
But there are the precious people ( hundreds upon hundreds, that are fun, kind, giving, loving, and true loyal SWA passengers. There are wonderful pilots who stand up for you, and Co-workers, Who cover for you when you need a break. There are constant kudos from management about how awesome you are, and how much you matter to the company!!!!
The good far out weighs the bad. I call the bad - life.
Wonderful co-workers, passengers, planes, flights are fun! Great benefits!
Supervisors are not covered by the union, which is sad, so their hands are really tied to help you in many situations
