    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really great people who are passionate about what they are doing. Many people have been at Delta for 20+ years and they bring with them a great understanding of the airline business. The company as a whole really takes care of its employees, but each department has its own culture. The flight benefits are really great, if you love to travel you will likely be happy here.

    Cons

    Ridiculously long hours and expectations for WAY below average pay for the same job with less hours. Lots of change in direction so a lot of scrambling adds to the stress. So many changes in direction its almost like a consulting environment but without the cool office and casual dress code.

    Pros

    Great people that take pride in their work, flight benefits, pride related to Delta's place in aviation history, healthy work/life balance, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    There was lots of bureaucracy and it was slow sometimes to get some things moving - that could sometimes be very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the ones on the ground - they are Delta Air Lines to our customers.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers help with pretty much everything, when necessary.
    Breaks happen often and last varying amounts of time.
    Pay isn't bad for a job that doesn't require a degree.

    Cons

    Hard to advance without a degree or some sort of insider helping you.
    Physically difficult work, easily can end up with injuries from the consent work load.
    Management varies on areas and micromanagement runs rampant with the younger managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees, they know what to do. Respect them they respect you, and remember many of them have been working out there for longer then we have been alive, so deserve respect because of their experience at the very least.

    Pros

    The benefits are great, of you have a language or are willing to fly as lead the shifts are good!
    Easy to swap or drop flights with their Programs.

    Cons

    Management does't seem to care about the staff, very 2 faced, need to always watch your back with the senior staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees, listen, and actually care! It's not always about what the customer may have said! Would You Rather keep a one time a year customer or a lifelong employee?

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time

    Pros

    Delta is a career choice for many. If you are looking for a great career and can handle the work schedule you will encounter being a flight attendant, then this is for you. You must be flexible to work long and varying hours. The experience is great for many.

    Cons

    Long hours and varying hours. Must be flexible to work days, night , weekends and especially holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is looking for flexible dependable people. They ask many situational questions, and look for consistency. They know what they are looking for. You have to prove to them you are the next Delta face even if it means you may have to reapply after being turned down. There are many people highly qualified to be the next Delta face but have been turned down once or twice and eventually have made it into the Delta team.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Delta is not just a job, it's a career. The ability to move around and up is phenomenal. You can pretty much find a situation that suits you and if you need to relocate to another state, tha's easy too. Also the flight benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    I don't see any cons except for lower management needs to develop better people skills when dealing with the employees. Upper management is very good at this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Which is staying connected to the subordinates via round tables and surveys
