    Pros

    Over all great company if you're willing to put in years to move up. Flight benifits if you are a traveler.

    Cons

    Everyone is hired in ready reserve and as a ready reserve you don't have much opportunity to move up for a couple years. You can pick up hours but you're only allowed up to 1300 hours a year before you're laid off. Better as a second job, not primary.

    Advice to Management

    Don't base everything off of seniority. Pay more attention to job performance and work ethics.


  2. Average Airline Life

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work schedule that allows for lots of time off in the family. Don't get me wrong you are away from home a lot but you also have a lot of time at home to focus on family

    Cons

    It takes a long time to build seniority. The first few years are tough but worth sticking it out.

    Pros

    I have had 35 years with this company.Never a dull moment! This is not just a job, but a lifestyle. You will travel in the united states and around the world. The longer you are there, the more choice you have. Employees are friendly and stick together. With management, it is "Go along to get along"!! Full benefits, Good pay. See the world.

    Cons

    When you first start working with the company, your life is in their hands...for several years.you will be on reserve making minimal money. You will be on probation for a year. You will be based wherever they want you, sometimes even having to transfer to different cities. You will fly every holiday. You will fly to wherever they send you...tiny towns or overseas. Do not be sick or be late. Do not get any bad letters from passengers (and passengers do like to write the airlines letters about their flights)

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs to get rid of their power trips..I have no comments or knowledge of what upper management does except by watching the stock market..

    Pros

    Travel , and company events

    Cons

    Not enough man power , upper management on witch hunt for travel benefits. Need a union . Everybody travel compaion are real friends and didn't pay for it or flying for business. Need a union nobdy is safe if you get random selected for a Audit.

    Advice to Management

    Give the employees a real shot and stop accusing people of selling or trying to batter stuff. Some employees are actually doing it the correct way and are above board.
