    Pros

    The company do reward their employees for the work that they do. You are also able to advance within the company.

    Cons

    If you are hired as a Ready Reserve employee you are really consider as a part time employee. There is no benefits except you are able to fly free and you are given passes that you can use for your family and friends.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work and grow within the company. Plus the awesome flight benefits of being able to sit in BUSINESS class from JFK to NRT, (that;'s if you can make the flight).

    Cons

    The cons depends on where your work within the company. If you work ramp, then you have to deal with the weather. Rain or shine, you are on the ramp. As a gate agent, you have to deal with passengers upset they are getting bumped. YOU will be the one they hold responsible. Flight attendant not being home during the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay, Offer more internal transfer

    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.

    Pros

    You are able to talk to Management about your career and also have a great chance of moving up.

    Cons

    I think that the ramp agents should get paid more. I also would suggest that everybody is able to get the pay rate matching or beating other airlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management team and they also will do ground work.
