    Pros

    The flight benefits are about it really. Aside from that, there is that collective culture that everyone tries to help.

    Cons

    The 1300 hour limit for ready reserves makes it tricky to swap shifts when you need to, and is still counted against you when they freeze your schedule during irregular operations (i.e. severe weather). At the same time, doubling up seems to be easier to do in some of the hubs like Atlanta, Minneapolis, Detroit, etc despite some bases having high seniority, making it harder to work your way up. If you want to move up in the company, then you'd have to be open to relocating. Your shifts fluctuate about every six months when you bid again based on seniority, so over time it does provide more flexibility in your daily life if you choose to stick it out.

    Pros

    They truly value and try to take care of their employees.

    Cons

    Ready reserve at some stations is more difficult than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of people scout. They're horrible!
    Internal hiring process for inflight is a seriously flawed system and needs to be fixed.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I interviewed for the position of cargo agent at Delta Airlines approx 7 times and still have not received a job offer.
    They even sent me an email saying I was not qualified.
    Delta Airlines has to start interviewing qualified candidate and not outsource it.

    Cons

    One of the times I interview the person sounded like she was about twelve years old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop outsourcing your job interviews and get on the ball and interview qualified candidates yourselves.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to see the world for free! As a flight attendant, you enjoy such flexibility, which is really what makes the job extraordinary!

    Cons

    As a employee in the airline industry, you have to endure huge concessions. Also, you have to consider the airline never closes, so be prepared to work holidays and possibly weekends until you gain some seniority.
