As an industry leader, Delta is proud to offer to all of our employees an appealing compensation package including competitive pay, excellent benefits and worldwide travel privileges.
Committed to maximizing your total compensation package and helping you plan for your financial future, Delta provides eligible employees access to a 401(k) savings plan, along with a profit sharing plan and a shared rewards program.
Standby system is fantastic for exploring places on weekends; very eye-opening summer as an intern -- gaining industry experience on weekdays, and cultural experience on weekends.
best: discounts,flights. worse was the schedules
401K and Medical was good. However the point in working for an airline is the flight perks. I think at this point, flying standby is pointless due to the amount of overbooking that goes on.
They have an excellent benefits package. Everything is top notch and as you would expect from a work class company offering world class service. My only complaint is that wages are set in Atlanta with no COLA when you live in a city like NYC of Seattle, Los Angeles where the cost of living can be almost double. Also, I have seen the out of pocket cost of health care go up over the past few years . Still an exceptionally excellent benefits package.
Company match 401k to 6 percent, paid personal time off , sick leave , medical and dental insurance
Travel benefits are great. Health Insurance options leave much to be desired.
As long as you can work any day of the week, hours and holidays it was a fun place to work.
Travel benefits are nice but flights are very full so it is difficult to travel free. Many stories of people having to fork out $1000+ to get home, etc. If you never have to be back to work or don't mind losing hotel/cruise reservations then it's not bad Buddy passes are basically worthless; very expensive and they go LAST in priority. None of my friends & family have used them in years I throw all of mine away every year. Delta does not fly to many international stations as it used to, so you can get to AMS or CDG but then you're on your own.
I lost my retirement during Delta's bankruptcy and I am too old to recoup the loss through the current defined contribution plan. People like me were forgotten. While we currently have been receiving profit sharing that has been the exception during my career at Delta. I have given back in pay cuts and lost retirement far more than any of the current profit sharing.
The best is flight benefits. Disability benefits the worst. I paid for 80% for 14 years and was denied it after a work injury. I’ve been disabled 10 yrs, they cancelled my disability after 30 days & refused to allow me to return to work because my doctor said I couldn’t, which was true but I would have tried in order to keep my benefits. But they cancelled my disability under the guise that Sedgwick CMS said I could return to work, & refused me employment because my doctor said I couldn’t. Never has made sense to me, but I’ve been on Worker’s Comp which I thank God everyday because I know in my heart that they would have fired me if I did force myself back to work because I’m no longer a reliable employee due to severe pain from the CRPS that my work accident caused.
