Pros: Great Travel Destinations
Cons: Long Hours, minimal rest periods
1) a typical day at work
Get up at 11pm to take off on a flight at 3 am to anywhere in the world, with very little sleep before. Work for long periods (8hours+).
Get 24hr Layovers to recover sleep, then flight back again.
2) what I learned
Social Survival Skills, Leadership Skills, worldly experience.
The management, many where incredibly talented individuals, however some were incredibly difficult people who were only out to get you and set you up for failure rather than for success.
Many talented individuals, sadly some where incredibly difficult people to work with, mainly due to cultural differences.
5) hardest part of the job
adjusting sleep patters, not getting enough sleep, incredibly exhausting emotional labour.
6) the most enjoyable part of the job
Travelling the world and learning about it's different cultures.
Learning about people and acquiring people skills.
