Delta Air Lines – Why Work With Us?

Connected We Climb

There are 80,000+ reasons to join Delta—every one of our employees has their own. Some of us want to explore new places. Some are here to explore our own career potential. Some are curious about other cultures, while others want to make a difference where they are. There’s a whole world out there—and another one right here within Delta. Which means that whatever keeps you climbing, you’ll discover it with us.

To connect our customers to the world, we need to see it for ourselves. 

Delta travel privileges are the envy of the industry. Eligible employees can use their travel privileges to visit anywhere Delta flies and our employees have been able to explore some amazing destinations. 

Family members are also eligible for free and reduced rate travel, including:

  • Spouse
  • Same-sex domestic partner/same-sex spouse (imputed income applies)
  • Minor dependent children (under 19 or under 23 if a full-time student)
  • Parents

Committed to your health and your success.

Delta provides health and insurance coverage to full-time and part-time employees and their eligible dependents, including spouse, children and same-sex domestic partner/spouse. Committed to maximizing your total compensation package and helping you plan for your financial future, we provide eligible employees access to a 401(k) savings plan, along with a profit-sharing plan and a shared rewards program. 

Giving back to move forward. 

Our people believe we have a fundamental mission to give back to the communities where we live, work and serve. Delta has committed to giving 1 percent of its annual net income to charitable organizations each year. Additionally, our employees contribute time, energy and millions of dollars to a host of worthwhile causes all over the world. 

Giving back to move forward.
Because the more ground I cover, the more common ground I find.

Connecting the world one passenger at a time.

A flight attendant's job revolves around the clock, and your life has to move with it. The top priority for every Delta flight attendant is to ensure the safety and comfort of all customers while providing exceptional service. As a global airline, we offer career paths for both English-speaking only, and multi-language speakers through our Language of Destination (LOD) team. Across the industry, our people are known for their engaging personalities, ability to listen, composure and teamwork.

Meet Nathad Ledford, Flight Attendant

Because sometimes the best trips are the ones that take you home. From Broadcast Journalist to Delta Flight Attendant. Nathan’s journey to becoming a Delta employee has been an unorthodox one, which started with him getting his wings on a Delta flight as a little boy. He now travels all around the world (being recognized in the top 1% of FA’s) and is still able to make it back in time what matters to him most: His family.  

Because transforming an industry starts with me.

We are on a journey of transformation.

Encouraging end-to-end thinking and collaboration across teams is something we are passionate about at Delta. We take pride in being problem-solvers and are looking for team members who share our passion for excellence. Our employees are changing the way we do business from across the enterprise, but we still have a lot of work to do. If you’re looking to help a company transform Information Technology into a competitive advantage, join us. 

Meet Marta Rodriguez, Sr. Developer, Angular

Because reinventing yourself can take you places you have always dreamed of. Marta is a proud Puerto-Rican grandmother who has reinvented herself in order to stay relevant in the fast-moving, ever-changing IT space of today. Her story would not be complete without her vibrant and supportive family, who get together most weekends to talk, eat and dance to their favorite music.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Delta Air Lines (Atlanta, GA) in June 2019.


    Recruiter was awesome! Communication between the SRE team an recruiter was great throughout the process!

    - Recruiter phone screen.

    - First technical and behavioral phone interview with manager and senior engineer.

    - Second Interview was two 30+ minute interviews on-site at HQ, with very technical discussions, several whiteboard problems, and time for my questions as well. First was with one senior SRE engineer and the manager. Second part was a 1:1 interview with another senior SRE engineer.

    - Third and final interview was a 30 minute phone interview with a senior IT director. Culture fit, behavioral, and high-level technical questions.
