How to Get Hired
We asked Delta Air Lines, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Our Rules of the Road document sums up our core values: honesty, integrity, respect, perseverance, and servant leadership/service. While technical skills and experience are important for many of our roles, the core values are universal and a common denominator in our selection process.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
First, apply to positions you know you're qualified for. Perform research and understand our business, network, and corporate culture. Get to know any of our more than 80,000 worldwide employees and they can advocate for your consideration. We pay close attention to our employee referrals.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We hire for some operational roles every year. These jobs include pilots, flight attendants, customer service agents, customer experience specialists, aviation maintenance technicians, engineers, and accounting/finance specialists. We anticipate growth in our Information Technology group as we continue to modernize our company to support our customers and employees.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
We publish the vast majority of our positions on our career site, www.deltajobs.net, and it's the ideal place to get started. We have some great videos that highlight many of our career opportunities along with insight shared from our employees. Candidates can also set up job alerts to be automatically notified when target opportunities are published. Lastly, just ask any of our employees, and they can share their enthusiasm for Delta and introduce you to our recruiting organization through referral. On that note, Glassdoor (where we are rated as a great place to work) is a wonderful resource for useful, first-hand details about what a job at Delta is truly like.
