Pros: the job itself, and the training was excellent
Cons: playing games over the contract
Being a flight attendant for a regional airline... Being on reserve, the worst time of my life, however I stuck with it since this was to be a "career" and would be best for me in the end. I'd have to sit around all day for 15 hours next to my phone ready to be at the airport in two hours for an entire year. Then maybe it was the last day until your weekend... Your flight home is in an hour, but you have to be at your phone for the next four... Did they let you go home? No. Your two day weekend just turned into maybe one, or none at all. Having a line life improved much. A line is a schedule you bid for the month prior. Still, many a night stayed at the airport because flights were full. Flight attendants get the last priority out of anyone. You could be at the airport for twelve hours in that awful uncomfortable uniform and still not get home. When you are home the last thing you want to do is use your flight benefits and go back to the airport! You also are paid barely anything. I had more money in college no joke, and it's such a superficial job. Dry cleaning, shoes with heals, hair, jewelry. It's the type of job you should have if you don't really NEED a job. Positives, the training was excellent. The job itself wasn't work at all; not to me. Quite enjoy the job itself, but this lifestyle is for one who's single, doesn't need to work to pay rent every month, or is lucky enough to live in base. That is all.
