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

Pros

Benefits both health and flight.

Cons

management, I had the worst boss in one department I worked at which is the reason I left. There were some outdate work practices and a manager in a position which required modern IT skills, she had none and it was a disaster yet she still had her job her befefits and the ability to scare off good company minded staff. The salary scale and starting at the bottom regardless of past airline experience. So you end up working with people less qualified than you and making the same if not less because of salary scales.

Advice to Management

Realize the potential of staff. Realize the cost of a bad manager. Recognise past airline experience as a bonus and start the staff at the relevant pay scale. Ive worked internationaly at 3 airlines now and have had to start at the bottom each time.

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

    Pros

    Unlimited free standby flight bennies, buddy passes, flexible schedules, leave work at work, getting familiar with other countries and cities on employer's dime, free parking for work and when you take a pleasure trip,

    Cons

    Subpar accomodations on layovers, no time to eat or even obtain food, irregular sleep, 14-16 hour days without any breaks, unreasonable co-workers and passengers, poor pay, comatose management, kool aid culture, no holidays if you are new and for many years into your career..

    Advice to Management

    Give us money instead of thank you's. Pay us for taking on the additional role of first responders after 9/11 instead of cutting our pay 40%. Glad I got out when I did!!!!!
