would you want to work in an airport?

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.

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.
