    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for! Fun work environment, cares about employees, great uniforms, competitive pay, just an awesome company to work for! They are very flexible, you can live anywhere in the world you want, as long as your able to get to work when you need to be there!

    Cons

    At the end of the day, it is a very large corporation. So it is very easy to become just a "number" in the company. The flight attendant group is not unionized, so rules can change very often. Make sure your time management is impeccable, because you cannot be late for work AT ALL, and there aren't many acceptable excuses, even rain is not an excuse.

    Advice to Management

    Hire inflight managers that understand what it's like to be a flight attendant. Hiring from other departments to manage flight attendants with no inflight experience is counterproductive to me.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is extremely helpful and willing to explain things to you if you are new. The supervisors are great too. Pay is pretty good, and we do get between 10-20 percent profit sharing every year. And lets not forget the flight benefits!

    Cons

    It can get physically exhausting and uncomfortable, especially in rain, snow and extreme heat, but that comes with the territory.
