    I worked at Delta Air Lines as an intern

    Pros

    Great learning environment. Everyone is very friendly and happy to do what they can to help you out. I was able to work with both the engineers and the mechanics which gave me an incredible understanding of the different engine components and the maintenance that is done on them.

    Cons

    The pay isn't terribly competitive and the flight benefits are difficult to take advantage of.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have had 35 years with this company.Never a dull moment! This is not just a job, but a lifestyle. You will travel in the united states and around the world. The longer you are there, the more choice you have. Employees are friendly and stick together. With management, it is "Go along to get along"!! Full benefits, Good pay. See the world.

    Cons

    When you first start working with the company, your life is in their hands...for several years.you will be on reserve making minimal money. You will be on probation for a year. You will be based wherever they want you, sometimes even having to transfer to different cities. You will fly every holiday. You will fly to wherever they send you...tiny towns or overseas. Do not be sick or be late. Do not get any bad letters from passengers (and passengers do like to write the airlines letters about their flights)

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs to get rid of their power trips..I have no comments or knowledge of what upper management does except by watching the stock market..

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time

    Pros

    Large variety of interesting and challenging jobs available. The work culture is generally positive and supportive. If you like aviation, this is a great place to be.

    Cons

    While a lot of areas are quite forward thinking, not all are. Like most large organizations, it can be quite difficult to make big changes quickly. This slows innovation and doesn't necessarily provide the atmosphere more driven types enjoy.

    Great company to work for. They care about their employees. Lots of room for advancement. Easy to move around to other positions. Great flight benefits

    No downsides to working here

    Management training would be a good start. You can tell most of the managers at Delta have never been managers before.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Over all great company if you're willing to put in years to move up. Flight benifits if you are a traveler.

    Cons

    Everyone is hired in ready reserve and as a ready reserve you don't have much opportunity to move up for a couple years. You can pick up hours but you're only allowed up to 1300 hours a year before you're laid off. Better as a second job, not primary.

    Advice to Management

    Don't base everything off of seniority. Pay more attention to job performance and work ethics.


  10. Average Airline Life

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work schedule that allows for lots of time off in the family. Don't get me wrong you are away from home a lot but you also have a lot of time at home to focus on family

    Cons

    It takes a long time to build seniority. The first few years are tough but worth sticking it out.
