Great for travelling, but horrible for pay
Bilingual Flight Attendant (Cantonese/Mandarin) (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 18, 2019
It was both the easiest and hardest job, because the pay was honestly very hard to live with. If you include the fact that we are provided with hotels during our layovers, our pay is phenomenal... but that's not really something we can cash out and pay for the bills with. As a reserve flight attendant, we had almost no control over our schedules during busy seasons, and it meant missing weddings, funerals, etc. I personally viewed my time as a flight attendant as a discounted long-term vacation, but after 2.5 years, it almost dried out my savings account, without any financial gain.
