Stakeholder Manager for Corporate Security (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 19, 2018
A lot to say about Delta. Loved my time at Delta. Didn't like the benefits or sometimes the culture they encouraged within their small groups of leaders. Need more outsiders to provide a greater picture
PAX Assist Agent (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 19, 2018
A typical work day involves getting up at 3:00 am in the mornings to reach to work on time - the hardest part of a work day hands down. However, this taught me the importance of time management. The work itself taught me a whole lot on customer-service and improved my interpersonal skills.
FLIGHT ATTENDANT (Former Employee) – NYC, NY – September 16, 2018
Trying to explain the job of a flight attendant is not easy. There would be trips that went exactly as planned and then there were trips that were completely chaotic. I learned about how to be flexible with this career. The hardest part though was getting to and from work since I didn't live in NYC. The friendships, locations, and coworkers were the best parts of the job.
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – September 13, 2018
Due to changes in the airline industry the job became very stressful. Additional work and often working short of help often made things difficult. The last 10 years I worked there there were almost no increase in salary and decrease in benifits even with all the additional work load and responsibility’s
Delta is a Great place to work. You meet people every day and you will meet lifetime friends who will become like family. The workplace culture is positive. You also get to fly as many hours or less depending on your preferences. The more senior you are, the better choices you have in selecting your schedules and where you would like to fly along with choosing your days off. The hardest part of the job is sometimes you may be flying on special holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas when you would rather be spending time at home with family and especially if you have small kids. But the most enjoyable part of the job is that the company does allow your family to travel with you on those special occasions.
Travel and seeing countries all over the world, Get to visit cities everywhere in the U.S., Profit Sharing payout every year, Most competitive pay in the airline business
Away from home long period of times during the summer, Working on special holidays if you are junior
Ticket Agent (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 12, 2018
Very exciting to work with and meet so many different people. Every day is a new experience. The job can help you become a global person. However as at all work places some of the management practices were not always "even" across the board. It may have been a little difficult to be able to climb the ladder at the same pace as some other employees. This reason can cause a company to loose good employees with great potential.
Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – September 11, 2018
I loved the airline industry; however after 20 years, was forced into early retirement due to the merger between Northwest and Delta. A lot of people lost their jobs, sadly. However, if I could work for them again, I would--except not my original city due to job changes.
excellent benefits, ability to re-locate, employee discounts, good insurance
sometimes mandatory overtime, can be extremely challenging if weather affects flight delays
