    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Pro's would be great pay and benefits for full time employees. Flight benefits are a major plus if you enjoy seeing the world.

    Cons

    Con would be having to work outside in the weather. Either the summers are extremely hot on the ramp and the winters very cold and wet. But that is the job I signed up for.

    Advice to Management

    would be nice to have a "Undercover Boss" just to see the situations and tasks that are being asked of the employees
