    I worked at Turkish Airlines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like to be in the aviation, it is an ok place to be. Its business is growing with many challenges. You will be exposed to a great audience and would get to know many people if you have any chance left from sefchicks:)

    Cons

    If you have a competitive personality, if you are highly educated, if you speak different languages this place is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    There is nothing they can do to prevent to be hired of politically influential people’s under-educated and hardly-english-speaking boys and girls, especially in locations like New York and London. My advice to the management is good luck to them.
