    I worked at Delta Air Lines part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexibility, and flight benefits

    Cons

    Challenging work environment, long hours, physically demanding. If you are a ready reserve agent you will not get health insurance, workman's compensation, paid sick days, and a lower pay cap than the benefited employees. Benefited employees are not exclusively leadership positions, most are working alongside the ready reserve employees. Delta is slowly getting rid of benefited employees, when a benefited employee is fired, or retires, or leaves the company Delta will not hire more benefited employees, they will hire ready reserve employees, for every 4 benefited employees that leaves, Delta will replace them with 4 ready reserve employees, or maybe 3 ready reserve and promote one ready reserve employee from within. To move up quicker you will probably need to relocate. In 2015 on average it took 4 to 5 years to become benefited. It now might take 7 years. Delta gives the airport managers too much power with very little oversight. They have been incredibly hypocritical when it comes to firing an employee, or promotion. I will say that there were a a number of employees I loved working with.

    Pros

    Flight Benefits. Salary is okay. Overall, you gain a second family since you will spend most of your time working mandatory OT.

    Cons

    Long hours. Mandatory OT. Lack of communication. Poor Management staff. Lack of working equipment. Employee Morale is lacking, none if all.
