    Best: Profit sharing. they pay 15% on company's profit to every employee every year. Health, vision and dental insurance is very good, and the pay you up to $150 per year if you register as a non-smoker Worst- Holiday have to be requested in advance

    Great company. Great strategy. Poor leadership, especially in IT, resulting in poor employee satisfaction

    The best part is the flying benefits, which can be extended not only for you but for both of your parents, spouse and even children.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Aircraft Lead Agent in Atlanta, Georgia

    The best thing about working at Delta Airlines is the ability to fly anywhere in the United States and territories for FREE! To fly international, you only pay air taxes (example: to fly to London it was 150 bucks, to fly to Sydney it was 200 bucks). You and your family fly with these benefits, plus you get to add a companion who can fly anywhere, they just have to pay the air taxes (even in the US, which is still very cheap).
