    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great leadership; top pilot pay rates worldwide; highest profit sharing for any public company, worldwide; best maintained aircraft fleet, worldwide; great travel benefits, good 401K on top of excellent pay rates, exceptional flight training.

    Cons

    Industry average medical, dental, and sick leave. Below average ground training/too much reliance on remote training. Inferior Crew Resource Management training. Inferior technology across the airline for the past 30 years. Mid - level management is extremely weak.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more line Flight Attendants to Flight Attendant leadership positions. All supervisors should be qualified for the positions they command and should work the line on a regular basis. Lead by example, supervisors should fly 60% of all holidays.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are really friendly and supportive here. I interviewed with two groups of people, each group with two people. Just general behavior questions. For example: describe a time you have to solve a complex problem, and what steps did you take to tackle it.

    Cons

    I did not find anything bad about Delta. I would like to apply back for a full-time job.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Delta attract great people. When a department or station adheres to the Rules of the Road, few organizations can compete with the culture, discounts, standby travel, authentic people, most leaders have an open door policy and promote Delta's culture and policies

    Cons

    The Ready Reserve program provides part time labor often performing near full time work without benefits. Some areas are very fair in utilizing the resource. One bad manager can spoil the bunch and the program can begin to feel like exploitation. While this type of person in authority at Delta is rare, some do exist. I regretfully am resigning from Delta after receiving an offer from an equally regarded organization due to lack of full time opportunity for growth after excellent performance as a Ready Reserve employee and lack of leadership in my direct department. There are really good leaders at Delta. This department in ATL just needs an overhaul.

    Advice to Management

    Revision the Ready Reserve Program. Delta is a premier U.S. company who overcame challenges, like many premier companies. The employees help to solidify the brand. Outsourcing jobs to Singapore, India, etc., and at the line exploitive labor practices is beneath the Delta brand. If there is limited room for growth or opportunity for RR due to high seniority at Delta, be clear being Ready Reserve, for most, will always just be a part time job.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The flying benefits are definitely the best pros of working for delta, the pay is pretty good as well for the work we do. Ability to set your own schedule and change work areas around the ramp every six months. The profit sharing bonus every year is a big plus as well.

    Cons

    Part-time agents dont get any benefits accept the flying perk (same with most companies but we do a labor intinsive job so I feel we should get the option for Health at-least). Superiors seem to play favorites when its time to promote ramp agents to other leadership roles.
