    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexibility, travel benefits, good insurance and 401K benefits. opportunity to fly international if desired. Professional working environment. Easy jump seat policy to travel when commuting.

    Cons

    You can't make plans that you can count on during the month due to being on reserve when you start working. It takes a while for pay to be high enough to lie comfortably.

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

    Pros

    Can travel all Delta destinations free minus taxes/landing fees on space available, usually in the First Class cabin. Lots of down time while at work. Many discounts for Delta employees. Overtime is routinely authorized. Profit sharing compensation depending on how well the company performs for the fiscal year. Promotions within are great.

    Cons

    Seniority dictates your schedule. Many people have been there 30+ years. Office politics pertaining to daily assignments. Some supervisors will micromanage the operation.

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

    Pros

    Able to work with high level management. Treated like an employee so you do the same work they do. The flights benefits are excellent. Co-workers are friendly and willing to help

    Cons

    Compensation but the flight benefits replaces that. Airline industry is so busy that most of the time there is no assistance. Co-op program needs to be more interactive.

    Current Employee - Flight Attendant in New York, NY

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great schedule flexibility, flight benefits and other discounts/perks are great, amazing opportunity to travel both internationally and domestically for work, fun co-workers.

    Cons

    The training department needs a serious overhaul, you will work holidays for many years since schedules are based on seniority, low starting pay, only paid for flight time so you "work" or sit around unpaid for a lot of time, work-life balance is hard if you have a family and want to be home often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a little more in touch with what your front-line workers deal with. Walk the walk more than you talk the talk.

    Pros

    Excellent excellent flight benefits. Lots of room to grow at the airport level. Corporate can be a hassle to get into. Great perks and discount . Company is stable and growing so stability is certain

    Cons

    Salary not the best especially for an airline that makes so much money. It is all about seniority from flying benefits to bidding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instill shadow programs for people so they can have a definite career path.
