Because it is a national airline, everyone plays a part in ensuring that SAA renders world class service to all its customers. Normal 08h00 - 16h30 office based jobs are enjoyable and there's a sense of stability. Operations-based jobs are highly pressurized, shift environments where each day is different. The hours can be long, and the time away from family can be taxing on an individual. Cabin Crew are an absent workforce, who work irregular hours and are sometimes away from home for very long periods.

I left SAA in March 2000. Then it was a succesfull and flourishing business. Unfortunately lately it seems that all has changed for the worts. SAA was the benchmark of all international travel when I joined Now I hope they will survive....
Pros
Aeroplane food leftovers

Long hours and challenging customers.
