      Pros

      Flight Benefits, A-lot of camaraderie with staff and co-workers, Fun corporate events to attend

      Flight Benefits on STANDBY, dealing with the front lines of angry and rude people especially during weather delays which seemed constant, not great pay for all that you are responsible for
