I worked as an operation controller for South African Airways for 9 years. The environment was a high pressure environment. The atmosphere didn't have a room for any mistakes.

everybody needs to work together, many a times you are left alone like nobody cares and nothing gets done about . Most individuals do as they please , hopefully things will change in the days to come.
Pros
great company to work for
Cons
long hours, work on weekends, shifts, and even night shift

Chief Cabin Controller (Former Employee) - Johannesburg, Gauteng
Board your plane and prepare the cabin before passengers boarded. See to passengers needs during the flight and enforce inflight safety rules. Great culture amongst staff and you were part of a selected few to be recruited for this job. Long working hours but in return you got good allowances and work uniforms and accommodation in 5 star hotels while away from home. Learned a lot about human behavior and different cultures and countries.
Pros
Travelled the world
Cons
Away from home and family and friends.
