    Flight Attendant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Delta Air Lines in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very nice and straight forward. There were about 30 interviewees. All looked nice and professional and all but 3 were on time. You walk into the building and you see a couple well-dressed, good looking Flight Attendants and about 30 (nervous) interviewees. They give you a name tag and a folder to so you can put all the needed identification in there. Then you go across the street to a big room where there is drinks, places to sit and many more flight attendants. You get a chance to meet many of them. You are broken into different groups and you do different things at different times. One group watches a video on Delta, another does a "fireside chat" where you can ask questions, and the last group does one on one interview questions. It was a nice, organized process. Also, the Flight Attendants and HR sang to the song "Happy" by Pharrell, that was nice haha.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Delta Air Lines in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Connected to alumni who pushed my resume to the hiring managers. Several days later I had a preliminary interview on the phone. This phone interview was not too difficult with several behavioral questions, accounting questions, and critical analysis questions. The manager who interviewed me was very nice and open about the hiring process. A week later, they flew me out to Atlanta to interview on site. Before the interviews, several newer analyst took me out to lunch. We had a great conversation about the company and culture. After a tour of HQ, I had two interviews with managers. Both were very similar to the phone interview. Overall, the hiring and interview process was very quick and transparent.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Delta Air Lines.

    Interview Details

    The initial communication of the hiring process was through e-mail where I was invited to schedule for a phone interview. The phone interview was very brief and was carried out by technical personnel of the airline. After the phone interview I was invited to the Delta Tech Ops facility in Atlanta, GA for an in-person interview.

    The in-person interview was also carried out by technical personnel of the airline and they were very courteous in welcoming me to the facility. The interview process was done by a panel and the questions to be asked were already pre-programmed by the company as I was told before the interview started. Most of the questions involved talking about an instance where I was involved in a certain situation and was asked to respond how I reacted to it.

    After the interview I was invited for a tour of the facility and the work environment seemed very professional.

    Very long but easy. You have to complete multiple phases but pretty much at this point if you pass a drug test then you are fine. The process takes around 4-5 hours. Just make sure you dress sharp.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Delta Air Lines in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, possibly was helped along by a personal referral but I had applied to several openings and I don't think my inside friend would have had effect on this particular opening. A little more than a month later, I received an e-mail from the hiring manager asking for a phone interview a couple of days later. That ended up being a very quick phone call to figure out which managers/leads would be best to be present during a face-to-face interview. A few days later, received a call from HR about F2F interview. During the F2F interview they asked me about items on my resume and then went into behavioral questions, such as "Tell me of a time where you had to overcome etc." and things like that.

    Manager said time frame for decision was 2 - 3 weeks. 3 weeks passed and no word. On the first day of the 4th week, I e-mailed the manager; received a reply back a few hours later saying the position had been filled. It would have been nice for Delta to notify me that I hadn't been selected. Their website still shows that I am "Under Review" as well. I wasn't too bummed about this rejection, since the commute would have been an absolute nightmare.
