    I worked at Delta Air Lines

    Pros

    Complimentary travel for you and your immediate family and parents, decent wages. If you are lucky to work at one of the hubs, the main campus has great offerings such as a workout facility, farmers market, employee sales. Medical benefits are competitive. Overall it is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Much talk about work/life balance but working long hours is expected. Not much room for advancement unless you know the right people. Not much of a recognition system for management employees. The company is so fearful of unions they basically run things on a case by case basis and make many exceptions for certain front line groups

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines

    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.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (less than a 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

    Feeling good sense of honor

    Cons

    Some manager/higher positions influence their preferred staffing company/group

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give equal opportunity to all agencies to send their people, not see from one manager's influence to their relative's company

    Flight Attendant

    Current Employee - Flight Attendant in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Great schedule flexibility, flight benefits and other discounts/perks are great, amazing opportunity to travel both internationally and domestically for work, fun co-workers.

    Cons

    The training department needs a serious overhaul, you will work holidays for many years since schedules are based on seniority, low starting pay, only paid for flight time so you "work" or sit around unpaid for a lot of time, work-life balance is hard if you have a family and want to be home often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a little more in touch with what your front-line workers deal with. Walk the walk more than you talk the talk.
