It warms my heart to see such a positive swing in our life of being a Flight Attendant. I LOVE being a Flight Attendant. I LOVE working for Southwest Airlines. I am what the company would call a "Kool-Aid Drinker". But in my almost 10 year career with Southwest, I became a mommy. And now, I have to question the compromise of giving up giggling, learning, and growing pains with that of my dedication to a company I love so much. When I go to work, I feel I am one of the BEST Customer Service Representatives Southwest has to offer: I enjoy the company of Customers, I (believe it or not) enjoy catering to their needs and wants, and get a kick out of making a difference in our Customer's days with a lil' extra POS. I struggle on a week to week basis with whether or not to leave the company so that I don't have to worry about being away from my little ones for 3-5 days a week. So for some, the job may seem like that of a "Rock Star", but for us mommies, it's VERY difficult to give up those precious hours at home. If Southwest Airlines wasn't such a darn good company to work for, my decision would not be so difficult. I recommend being a Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant to any and all that apply. But next time you're flying the friendly skies, consider the sacrafices that are made on a personal level that continuously prove to be a benefit to all those involved.
