    I have been working at Delta Air Lines as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flight benefits. Customers and coworkers those who are not inline with upper management. Top notch air line that has great potential.

    Cons

    IT department has lied to their Contractors promising benefits and jobs to those who have been working side by side with coworkers that get profit sharing checks for work shared with Contractors. This practice is causing a hostile work environment with disgruntled Contractors not getting recognized for same effort.

    In fact Delta owns the company that provides Contractors and gives those Contractor no time off, vacation, holiday pay or sick time while they breathe those toxic fumes in. The Contractors are mostly Black while the IT management are mostly white men, there are many who have been exposed to racist discrimination. Nooses have been found and reported with no change. Hostility continues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to show you are an Equal Opportunity workplace instead of disrespecting American citizens who are not white.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    travel, health insurance, the computer is forcing me to list 20 words but 3 is all I can offer.

    Cons

    salaries are lower than other sectors, travel benefits is supposed to be your incentive but today many including DL have so many code share operators and are adding all the time that non reving is becoming more difficult and expensive as you do pay the taxes. I still get buddy passes from my friends but yesterdays flight to CA had 55 active staff members trying to get on a flight I paid 4.10 for. The staff members paid 250 for its not free................ Time off is limited so you cannot enjoy the travel, most people I worked with never used it to its full advantage as they couldn't really afford it. Neither could I when I was the employee. Now I travel more which is bizarre since I left them for months at at time. This was never possible with Delta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was promoted from airport to flight control where the money was better but as a people person I was much more valuable to the company dealing with people where I was excellent at my job and generated more thank you airport than any other staff member on record during that time in that airport. The company however does not see this and financially I couldn't afford to return to the airport but I was dying in a department in the OCC. I chose to leave. I miss the airlines daily however I make double my salary now and fly more for pleasure world wide something I couldn't do while working for DL. It makes no sense.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay for a college position.
    Flight benefits are definitely the best part, and reason why I stayed for 3 terms
    Very cool to see all the planes, etc
    Learn how to work in a corporate and professional environment

    Cons

    No training so its very hard to start working on things because you will now be used to the lingo (lots of acronyms)
    Lots of change during my three different terms, with no clear solution or future
    The 'projects' they give you are rarely rewarding
    You will have ALOT of down time with nothing to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you have work for Co-ops to do before you hire them
    Allow other employees other than 'mentor' to give projects
    Some sort of week long training would be hugely beneficial

    Pros

    Delta has a great culture to develop and promote people from within the organization. Top notch sales training dept, great leadership and overall awesome flight benefits.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low end. If you get steady promotions (say every 2-3 years) you always end up on the bottom end of the pay band for the position you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow HR compensation and managers to pay employees you promote market value salaries vs the standard 5% bump or minimum of pay band.
