OM Gosh - has it really been 20 years since I wandered into Continental Airlines to apply for a job? Wow! ..and to think that I actually only took this job waiting for construction to be done on a hospital where I was hired to start just 6 months later as a Surgical Technologist. After 6 months I was so hooked on the flight benefits I no longer wanted to leave!
This is a picture of a 15 year service pin. At 5 years you get one that is plain gold, 10 years has 2 sapphires in it, 15 years is 1 diamond and 20 years has 2 diamonds, which is what mine has. God is so good. He knew what I needed and provided it for us. I more than made up for the lower pay with all of the trips we took, vacation packages I have won and best of all, my parents also had flight benefits. That is the year they started to go to Europe every single Spring.
