    I have been working at Delta AirElite full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits of working for a Delta Air Lines wholley owned, including travel benefits for you and family, home basing (mostly, if where you live works for them). The flight schedule isn't usually hard or terribly demanding. Good hotels. Per diem, though it is on the low side. Company iPhone and iPad for personal use. FAA medicals covered by the company twice a year. Actively working on some sort of uniform allowance.

    Cons

    If they don't like where you live for airlining you to the assigned aircraft, they can and will change your domicile. Pay is substandard, but it is getting a little better. Upgrades can stall out in smaller fleets.

    I worked at Delta AirElite full-time

    Pros

    flight benefits, and flexible PTO

    Cons

    David Sneed just liked to fired everyone he didn't like but then he himself got fired. I really think he was unfit for the position. I feel bad for everyone that had to go through that even though they didn't do anything wrong.

    Advice to Management

    lol find someone who know how to be a leader and make employees feel empowered.

    I have been working at Delta AirElite full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Schedule, Flying locations (KEYW overnights are fun), most captains are cool, just got raises (still need higher though), and overall the company has their head on their shoulders.

    Cons

    Pay, Flying locations (TEB gets boring after a while), need to explain our new SOP's before just saying "here go learn them"

    Advice to Management

    Bring up the pay so people stop leaving, and even though us pilots whine and complain about everything, we really are the heart and soul of the operation. let's make a balance instead of just having everything 1 way...

    I worked at Delta AirElite full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good co-workers, flight benefits, good experience in private aviation

    Cons

    Management, esp. upper management and esp. the present COO. Communication, pay and advancement opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Need to show appreciation to all employees. The present COO is not approachable and has a reputation of terminating people esp. if a mistake is made. Employees who are appreciated and respected are much more successful. It is a winning combination and one that has definitely been lacking for the past 2 years


  5. "Low Wages"

    Pros

    Free Coffee
    Free Parking
    Free left over food at times

    Cons

    Talk that most departments won't see much of if pay raise and in some cases, several years will go by with out a company in general pay raise.

    Generous PTO for employees in advertised benefit package but company may not approve PTO before it expires before the end of the year. Some employees have lost several days or even around a week of PTO that can't be used due to requirements to work high volume hours and in many cases with wages that are far below market value.

    I have been working at Delta AirElite full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people to work for. Aircraft are maintained properly. Travel benefits for family only. They really try to get you home when your rotation is up. Good starting position for someone to build sometime and learn from some really experienced captains.

    Cons

    The pay is one of the lowest for part 135. The insurance is expensive even for today's standards. You will do training on your days off most of the time, which can make for a three week rotation. slow upgrade for most fleets.

    Advice to Management

    Increase base pay. Use reserve pilots to cover training so that pilots can still have their scheduled days off.
