Okay, so you researched, applied, didn't lie (pretty much), waited, FINALLY got a job offer and an invitation to training ... now what?! You are wrapping up your current job, saying good-bye to friends and family for 4-8 weeks of training (possibly longer) and trying to wrap your head around that fact that your life is about to change FOREVER.
Take a moment and breathe. This is going to be a big shocker.
The Flight Attendant Lifestyle is not for everyone. You may get to training and realize that the junior bases that you will be assigned to for the first three months to three years of your career are Kansas City, Minneapolis or Charlotte, NC. You will be away from your best friends, your parents and maybe even your significant other for days, weeks and months at a time. You will barely be making minimum wage your first year of work. You will max out credit cards, lose track of bills and probably drift away from a friend or two. You will have a breakdown at some point and cry.
Is this for you?
But after your wipe those tears away and look in the mirror, you will see someone you didn't know was there. That person looking back at you is stronger and more adventurous than you ever thought possible. That person is a fighter. That person is the flight attendant you were meant to be.
