I applied online. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in January 2014.
Applied in early Oct. 2013 Got a call back first week in January 2014 Was told I needed to have passport to proceed further did that. Got a second call back the following week and was asked 4 questions. What to do if a passenger appears intoxicated? What to do if a child was asleep on the floor while the fasten seat belt sign is on? How would you handle a passenger in a situation where the food item they wanted was not available? How would you handle a child running down the isle? Then I was asked 4 more questions on that same call A time you went above and beyond for a customer? A time when you persuaded others to do something new? A time when a co worker was being unfair or dishonest? How would you deal with a difficult customer... and how did you handle it, what was the outcome? I got a call back the next day and was invited to a face to face interview for the following week. About 60 of us met at 7:30 am in the lobby of delta facility. *REMEMBER TO SMILE THE WHOLE WHILE AND INTERACT WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN* Also please dress neat and business like do not wear a suit that is to tight have nails done and look sharp. You go across the street to another building where you are met by about 20 experienced Delta Flight Attendants and a few HR people who line the walls of the room. You are then serenaded by the crew totally awesome! then led into a room where you will introduce yourself and tell if you speak another language and what work you are currently doing. We were divided into three groups A, B, and C. I was in B group. Each group had designated areas to go -Watch video of life as a FA -Fire side chat where you ask questions have your picture taken and measure for over head reach and jumpseat fit. -Then the face to face interview You will alternate to each area until everyone has had a chance to go to all areas remember to use the STAR (Situation, Task, Action & Result) method when answering interview questions, always smile and be upbeat! These are some questions they may ask or questions simular to these. There are two interviewers in the room and the are writing the whole time you are talking. But don't be alarmed they are listening carefully. Describe to me a time you overcame a problem at work? How did you handle it? And what was the outcome? What do you do when a co-worker works at a slow pace? How did you handle working with a co-worker you knew did not like you, how did you handle it? What are some of your strengths? And worst faults? Describe a conflict that you had with a manager, how did you handle it? How was it resolved? If a co-worker was removing things from the aircraft would you confront them or tell management? Why would you make a good Flight Attendant? What do you know about the company? Create a PA Announcement for couple celebrating their 50th year anniversary After that they gather all the groups together in the meeting room and conclude the process by saying they will contact you via email to let you know if you are hired which they do do, however if there are candidates that have stood out they keep them behind and explain that they have additional information they need to get from these people. They called six names and I was one of the six asked to stay behind. We were offered the job and whisked away to HR to complete some paperwork. Fingerprints done and given a training date. It is now Feburary 2014 and I have a week and a half to go before I begin training in March and I am super excited! I hope this info helps you as it did me when I researched the Delta interview process and as you can see it worked. I am hope this can help you as it has helped me to be 100% prepared.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Delta Air Lines.
Applied initially online, and took the "personality" assessment. About 5 weeks later was contacted to submit a one-sided video interview. They ask you 5 questions, you have 30 seconds to prepare, and 2 minutes to answer the question. You also get a break in between each question which is nice! All the questions I was asked have been submitted on this website, so nothing unexpected. I submitted my video a week ago and I'm waiting to hear back...
- Please describe a situation when you demonstrated initiative and took action without waiting for direction. What was the situation? What actions did you take and what were the results? Answer Question

The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Delta Air Lines.
Applied on March 25th. Received an email 1 day later asking me to complete a personality assessment. Was not asked to complete a work/education history application until a week and a half later via email. The email implied they had been waiting on me to complete the application, so look out for that. I completed this on a Wednesday, and the following Monday was asked to participate in a video interview through an app/company called HireVue. This is NOT a conference call. It is one-sided only. The app presents 4 questions to you on the screen and you have 30 seconds to think about it. Then a 3,2,1 countdown begins and BAM, you're viewing yourself in a front facing camera to answer these questions. You have 2 minutes per question to answer, but can end the questions earlier. I had trouble using the iPad version of the app and had to use the iPhone version instead. 24 hours after the video interview, I was called by atlanta (404 area code) to book a face to face interview at the airport.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Delta Air Lines in February 2015.
I had applied for the non-billingual Flight attendant position for Delta airlines in January 2015, I had received the email and went through the Web interview, Phone interview and then got invited to Atlanta for the F2F interview. The whole process for me took about a Month. In order for you to readily go on with the interviews and hiring process, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT for you to have your passport... YES, you are just being interviewed, but, if you have NO passport, YOU wont Move along the hiring process.. As for Interview day, It goes the same as everyone had posted. You meet in the general lobby area alongside all the other candidates. Realistically, the interview starts when youre waiting in the lobby.. Be SURE to interact and mingle with everyone. THEY ARE WATCHING YOU!! Be positive and be jolly. After that, they bring you upstairs to the Skyline social room, where you will enter seeing many flight attendants lining the room. YES they are just flight attendants, and YES THEY ARE YOUR INTERVIEWER!! They will be the one interviewing you.. Go around and TALK TO EVERYONE.. take time and get to know them a little more than just their name.. THEY ARE WATCHING YOU!!! Then they will gather everyone and welcome you all.. Then they will break you up into your designated groups A, B, C... I was in the Rotation A. so I had my interview F2F first. Interview time. BE honest, be humble and be Genuine!! TELL the truth and GO INTO DETAIL!!! they want you to speak of your experience, and GO INTO DETAIL!! I cannot stress enough how important it is to go into detail.. Throughout the whole F2F interview time, they are looking down and writing. They barely give eye contact. It is also important to answer using the STAR method to all of your questions. Remember GO into DETAIL!! Explain... Then the next part of the interview was Destination Delta. In this part of the interview, You will be asked to stand on the STAR in the front of the room and state 4 questions about yourself. STAND ON THE STAR! I cant recall how many people not Standing on the star... LISTEN and stand on the star. :) Then you will talk about the job itself. Here they will be brutally honest about the first year as a flight attendant! Job code, Uniform standards, pay, Bases, training etc.... After this then you will all convene back into the main room in which you all entered in. They will let you continue socialize.. STILL continue to socialize...... At this time, the Main interviewers are meeting with some of the flight attendants to see who they wanted to give the CJO, Conditional ob Offer... They gathered everyones attention, and announced about 10 people to stay after to process paperwork... After that they thanked everyone for coming in today and told them to watch for their emails in 5-10 business days. Then they were to be taken back to the airport. The rest of the 10, went over to HR for fingerprints and pre-employment paperwork... The whole Interview day was AN AMAZING experience.. The DELTA team ensured that you were comfortable throughout the whole day!
- The Questions are based on Experience. Be truthful, because theyve heard EVERY story in the book. DO NOT try to make up a question on the spot. Answer Question
They will warn you, that you CHECKED the 2 boxes in accordance that you ARE willing and ABLE to relocate.. Also you ARE required to work nights, days, weekends, weekdays holidays etc,,,

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.
Step one: Filling out the online application Step two: The one-way webcam interview. The questions were given after a short presentation and then you had thirty seconds to prepare an answer before you had to record it. Remember to be bubbly and dress like you are sitting in the same room with them. Step three: The phone call. A recruiter goes over company standards, expectations, asks you about body art such as tattoos and piercings and then goes into further details of the job. They ask you if you are able to complete each of these without any problems. Again, have a bubble personality. I got lucky with my recruiter, she was a peach! We talked like we had known each other our whole lives! We even made a pact to go shopping together! She then invited me to a face to face interview. Step four: The face to face interview. Mine is at the end of this month so I can only go by what has been said by my friends that already work for Delta as flight attendants, but the hiring process is always changing.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Delta Air Lines.
I applied for the bilingual flight attendant back in June, a week later received an email that asked me to take a digital interview through HireVue. I had 3days to complete. I decided to complete my interview on the second day. After completing it was about a month before I received an email thanking me for completing and that I was one step closer! The next day around 3p.m I received a call from a delta recruiter who asked questions regarding qualifications etc. If you have visible tattoos that will most likely take you out of the running sorry :( . After the run down of questions I was told I will receive an email for my flight details. I received multiple emails about a brief video to watch of flight attendants giving tips for the interview as well my itinerary, detailed information of the interview. I'm preparing to go to the face to face and hoping I'll be writing about having my new career as a flight attendant.

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA).
Delta receives thousands of the applications for flight attendants during the time they are hiring. If you know someone who works for them, by all means have them submit an internal referral. It will help you get a computer interview. After the initial interview, the next step is to fly to ATL for a face-to face interview. If you pass, you will be given a date to start training then and there. If you don't, reapply!
