    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Terrific Company to work for. Travel benefits were wonderful and pay, once beyond 5 years, was great. Being a Flight Attendant provided me with the opportunity to see the World and provide great customer service to all levels of people. I grew as a person and gained professional experience which I took to my next profession. The only reason I left was because I had children. I chose my secondary career so I could be home in the evenings with my family.

    Cons

    Flight Attendant Travel did not work well for me as a new mom. Also, Flight Attendants do not get substantial enough pay while boarding the airplanes and in between flights while required to be on duty. The entire duty required for a workday cuts down your actual hourly pay rate to a much more minuscule pay rate. I believe at least a minimum wage rate should be paid for all hours required on duty for Flight Attendants in between flights and while boarding the plane. Per diem is not substantial enough for this time spent on the ground without flight pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the policy of low and unpaid ground time for Flight Attendants and pay a reasonable rate for that time. Flight Attendants are required to do their duties while boarding and deplaning. Substantial pay should be allocated for this time working.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many smart people trying very hard to improve the flying experience. There's a genuinely friendly and collegiate atmosphere to the headquarters. Executive team cares for employees and implements polices to back that up. Fun place to make a career if you have a passion for service and enjoy hard, rewarding work.

    Cons

    Can be political at times, which can derail careers and stifle good ideas.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Start flying while you are free of responsibilities at home. It's a lifestyle. Take advantage of opportunities within the department to develop a better understanding of the company firsthand. You will have opportunities to travel the world and make lifelong friends. I was proud to work for Delta.

    Cons

    Once you leave the company, via early retirement, it's virtually impossible to return. This forces many people to continue working far too long with poor attitudes and burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Offer part time employment programs to "seasoned" retirees who were in good standing to act as mentors for new hire flight attendants.
