Public Relations Communications Specialist

Hey there! I see a few marketing/comms jobs at Delta Air Lines that I would LOVE to apply for. Would anybody be open to a referral? I have five years experience in communications, marketing and PR and five years experience as a newspaper reporter before that (so can think on my feet, thrive in a fast-paced work environment, etc). I’m equipped with strong writing, researching and public speaking skills. Also knowledgeable in SEO and campaign management. Thanks in advance!

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4 months. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in Apr 2022


    First off, I want to say the people that are coming on here leaving their experience and not giving example of interviews questions stating "Delta ask us not to disclose or share" why are you even coming on here?? The point is to help out, if you don't want to help why even come on here, wasting our time and yours........

    Okay so once you make it to the Face to face. They split you up in 3 groups. The groups are picked put by the letter of your last name. Group A, does their face to face 1 on 1 interview first..

    Group 2 Does the cart challenge

    Group 3 stays and learn about the company

    They rotate every few hours giving you break in between. They are watching everything you do so make sure you are mingling and acting as if you are a peoples person. At the end they release you by calling your name.

    If they release you in group 1, you did NOT get the job

    Group 2: there is a possibility you might get it

    Group 3: You got it.

    AM class got their CJO on the spot
    PM class had to wait 7-10 days to know.

    Training is 6 weeks. 7 dollars a hour. The thing about Delta is you never know what they are looking for. You never know why you got or did not get the job.

    Good Luck everyone, be fake if you have to. just get thee job

    1. Why Delta 2. Tell me about a time you had a difficult customer and how did you handle it? 3. If you had a coworker that was not doing their assigned job how will you handle it. 4. Tell me about yourself 5 Tell me about a time you presented good customer service.

Because I’m able to balance both of my careers. “I’ve had an incredible journey with Delta over the last 20 years. Since January 2001 when I started my career here, I’ve been able to grow immensely, balance my duties as a member of the Air Force Reserve and take the time to support and grow with my family. Delta understands my military service, and they have made the constant transition between military and civilian life seamless every step of the way. Every flight I take in both the civilian and military capacity reminds me that I made the right decision in my career choice. The most memorable moments are when young women and girls see me in uniform; the look in their eyes when they realize I am flying the plane is priceless. My hope is they believe, ‘if she can, we can’.” — Dana Nelson, First Officer
