    If you love planes and travel this is the job for you, but beware of the industry you are getting into.

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

    Pros

    If you love planes and travel the is the job for you. Delta Air Lines gives you the ability to travel the globe in luxury (first class) at a minimal price. Delta Air Lines is the best United States carrier and most of the world.

    Self-starters are encouraged to always take on new projects and are always listened to.

    Retirement benefits are very good for compared to any industry that you are in.

    Leadership has an open door policy and is highly committed to growing the company.

    If you are coming into the company (not entry level) this is an excellent job for you. You will be able to apply prior experience (educational or work) that might not be already utilized at the company or in the Air Line industry.

    Recent graduated MBA's coming into the company will love the opportunities the company will give to you especially if you are in one of the rotational programs.

    Cons

    The Commercial Air Line Industry really distinguishes itself from other industries in being pretty poor. Delta Air Lines is the best U.S. Carriers, but that is not really saying much. This is the general nature of the industry "low margin" and "high frequency." The amount of capital it takes (planes, fuel, general labor) makes it very difficult to generate a profit. Beware of this overarching theme when applying to any position in the company.

    - Lack of on the job training or formal training
    - Poor salary compensation, the company is highly reliant on their flight benefits to make up for other areas of the benefits package
    - Hit or miss on long hours depending on the department very little middle ground, resulting in poor work-life balance
    - They do not provide any non-scholarship tuition reimbursement
    - Lack of technology implementation
    - Extreme preferential treatment to rotational MBAs (applies to non-MBA's or MBA's not in their rotational program)

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

    Pros

    Good work hours. Worked 2 days a week, 20 hours and able to free up 5 days a week for free time. Travel benefits are good. Profit sharing checks are good.

    Cons

    Benefits are good but you have to pay $50 a year to fly on a standby basis. You are considered low grade if you are part time or as they call it 'ready reserve'. Be prepared to be part time for a long, long, long time while less senior people get full time over you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to listen to your employees that, as you so affectionately call them, 'below you' and the company morale will go further.
