Are flights really worth it?

Ramp Agent (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlight benefits
Profit sharing
Paid vacation

ConsPoor management
Favoritism
Petty & lazy coworkers
Low pay
Overworked

Advice to Senior ManagementTry hiring people who actually want to work instead of get over on the hard work of others by doing as little as possible. Find managers that know how to manage. Promote people who have a brain and can do the job they're applying for, instead of promoting based on favoritism. Enforce policies on everyone bit just a select few.

Great for a college student looking to explore the world

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Delta Air Lines as an intern for more than a year

Pros- The flight benefits, which I'm sure everyone mentions.
- Relaxed work environment.
- You can really add to your resume if you have the drive to do your own project.

Cons- Flying on benefits is the most stressful thing you'll ever do.
- Pay is not competitive for a software development position.
- They use outdated software, so you get little to no relevant experience.
- It seemed to be very bureaucratic. I don't know that good work will necessarily land you a better position and salary.

Advice to Senior Management- If you are going to pay so low compared to other companies, make sure that the flight benefits are usable. Similarly, focus more on fixing the back end of the operation. It seems as if most of the money is spent on the customer side, when a strong software suit to manage parts and other work would cut back on a lot of useless spending.
