I am out of town until July 13th. I'm only in SLC, but am currently in a training class with SkyWest Airlines and they have put me up in a hotel. I didn't say much to anyone because anything can happen and I am not hired until I successfully pass all of the required training.
As most of you know, I was once a Flight Attendant for Delta Air Lines. I had a very lucrative career with them and will always be grateful for the amazing things that experience taught me. In many ways it has served to be advantageous while undergoing this training...but in other ways, it's a bit of a disadvantage. Only in the sense that I have to learn the "SkyWest way" of doing things. As each day passes, I am more and more impressed with this company.
The instructors are all great! They are knowledgeable and very friendly. All of them have less than 10 years experience in this industry but that hasn't slowed them down one little bit! It is actually encouraging to me because it shows that growth within the company is very attainable.
I am completely impressed with the professionalism and seriousness they take their jobs. Seriously, Flight Attendants are SO much more than Pretzle Princesses! The extensive knowledge they need to know in order to provide the best safety, security and customer service is unbelievable.
I feel so blessed to have this opportunity. I will not have much time to write (if any) for the next 3 weeks. Please check back after July 15th and hopefully I will be able to get back to speed with my blogging!
