    company review

    + PRO
    Travel is number one the lifelong friendships from training class and the random crew members that I get to fly with are wonderful The passengers for the most part at least for me have been great It s rewarding when you can make them comfortable at 35 000 ft They show their appreciation and their thanks as they exit the aircraft Some even leave goodies such as chocolates
    - CONS
    Commuting is sometimes an issue During certain times it s very hard to get on a flight to report to work The long hours and living out of your suitcase for days on end can be challenging It s a lifestyle and you have to get used to it Training isn t long enough There needs to be more hands on before going onto a real aircraft
