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

    Pros

    Delta provides flexibility to the employees in the InFlight Division. Even at the most junior levels there is flexibility as a flight attendant, and that flexibility increases as seniority increases. Vacation time, personal time, and pay are quite generous. Training is very thorough, and prepares you for success.

    Cons

    Occasionally customers can take things overboard and act in an inappropriate manner in an effort to try to get a service or product that was not included with their ticket.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to move Delta forward.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I retired Delta Airlines in 1995. It was the greatest Airline to have an opportunity to to be a part of. I welcome an opportunity to work for this great Airline again. My employment date was 1969- 1995

    Cons

    The root structure when I left what's not what it is today. I believe with the greater opportunity it would be more conducive to a successful outcome.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that I would an asset the company in any management position. I have over 20 years of management experience in the private sector.

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

    Pros

    Exceptionally run corporation with a high regard for it's customers and employees.
    The culture is " The Delta Family"
    I have loved every minute of the almost 29 years I have flown here.

    Cons

    The federal government rules currently in place force pilots to retire at the age of 65 regardless of their health and desire to continue working. This is out of Delta's hands.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work started by Richard Anderson and continued by Ed Bastian. Keep the employees focused on the customer experience by continuing the profit sharing program.
