    Pros

    The salary was pretty decent for a recent college grad. Working 12 HR days with overtime made the overall pay even better. Was able to keep traveler points (flier miles, hotels, etc).

    I never knew where I was going to be and when I was going to be there. I could have come home from a two week trip and be sent out the next day.
