Really no, aparently working in an airport is one of the most stressful jobs in the world due to all the complications and irritable customers

i agree! you get stressed and you get burned out easily. plus, people get to yell at you most of the times and you don't have a say in it :)

oh yeah, sometimes even when they are wrong and even if they know it, they'd still stick to what they want!

I think it should be really fun to work in an airport, I already consider that when I was younger. It should be nice to have contact with so many different people that talk others languages and have unusual habits. I think I would learn a lot working in an airport.

It is fun, most of the times. But sometimes the language barrier is frustrating. Like when you really can't understand what a passenger wants or vice versa. it's also tough when there are delays and flight interruptions, but overall, it isn't so bad.

Haha. Luckily, it's very lenient with us. Most of us can't even complete a week's worth of work. But we only get written reprimands, which doesn't really matter. I also run late most of the times, but my pay just gets deducted because of it. During breaks, we can play psp or ipods or do whatever we want.

Why not? I think it's easier to work in the plane than in an airport. But I don't really want to be a flight attendant, I just think it's easier. If you mean riding as a passenger, then I really like doing it. I love taking flight! :)

Not really, sounds like It would be very stressing and challenging. Iv'e read articles about people who work in that industry and there are a lot of rants and complains. Waiters/waitresses/Stewards all have a tough job. Keep up and keep them happy. Pilots work long hours with small breaks, and receptionists also need to keep their cool and be in a professional mode all day long. I actually admire them, I'm not sure I would last long in a job at an airport.

I've lasted three years so far. But I don't think I can take it any longer. I'm actually trying to look for a new job now. You're right, it's a lot of stress and an be a big challenge at times. Sometimes people insult you or be very rude to you and you can't do nothing but to accept it.

I work in the travel industry and at some point I though I'd want to travel in the airport environment. But then I started flying a lot more and that helped me realize how unpredictable, hard and stressful many of the airport jobs were.

Yeah, it is stressful at times. However, when there's no problem, working in the airport (at least my work) is really easy and could be a lot of fun. When nothing's wrong with the flight, workload's really light.

Hi, allamgirl. I would like to work inside of an airport building that is flat on the ground. I would like to be an receptionist and a person that keeps records of the available flights. I think that this would be fun to do.
