    Pros

    Management is dedicated to making work a positive experience. I was a ramp agent and the PL's were great.

    Cons

    The pay scale for the first few years is rather low, but if you put in the time the pay gets more reasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes management was too hands on. More trust in employees making decisions would be nice.

  7. Fun place to work and co workers are like family

    Pros

    Stand by travel, getting off work and going for a walk in a different city, you can work unlimited hours.

    Cons

    Seniority drives everything, so you are either senior enough to hold a good trip or you have to sit on the computer swapping trips for literally days before you can get a decent trip. Delta designs a lot of the domestic trips to be 12 or 13 hour duty days, with 3 and 4 hour sits between each leg, allowing themselves free airport standby employees who are basically unpaid but required to be there. Stand by travel is not a good idea if you really have plans that you have committed to, I usually ended up buying tickets to make sure I got somewhere in time or if I had reservations made, so no money savings there. Lowest pay in airline industry if you adjust for duty day period required per trip, and not just count flight hours. Some days are blocked so you cannot swap off of those days to improve your schedule, yet there is no added incentive pay to make it worth your wile to work the shift. Airplanes have all been reconfigured so that there are additional passenger seats, but no where for flight attendants to sit or eat a meal in privacy for a few minutes. Ergonomically horrible work conditions and equipment. If you have a family or even one friend that you like to see regularly, this job is not for you. If you dont mind endless chit chat with stranger after stranger, you might enjoy this lifestyle.

    Advice to Management

    Try flying the trips that have been designed. Literally. Fly one of those trips. If I could have been able to drop at least a few of the trips that I was assigned I may have stayed with the company longer. I was there 6.5 years. With an entire month of days on your schedule, no flexibilty to drop or swap, and horrible planes without even a spot to keep your personal food cold or lock your personal effects, it gets old and it gets harder and harder to deal with when you just resign yourself to eating airport food which is unhealthy and expensive. Again, might be bearable if there werent so many trips assigned each month. Delta has made the flight attendant position a McDonalds type of job (not that there is anything wrong with McDonalds, I worked there when I was 16), come in, learn the job, do it, minimum pay, and quit soon after so that they can hire new employees at a lower rate of pay. I truely believe they want to make the work environment unbearable so that no one can handle the years and years of pushing pulling lifting carts and galley equipment. So that they will be forced to quit.
