Traveling around the world, experiencing new cultures and meeting fascinating people are just a few of the perks Delta Air Lines’ flight attendants enjoy. But the job definitely has its demands. Employees must have a certain level of flexibility and be ready work evenings, weekends and holidays.  

Also, the competition for the position is stiff. In 2012, Bloomberg reported that the airline company received 22,000 applications for only 300 spots. So if you want to land the coveted job as a Delta flight attendant, you'll have to bring your "A" game. Here's what to expect: 

Delta uses the STAR method of interviewing, a technique that requires interviewees to answer a series of questions with past experiences, according to Delta’s website. Job candidates are advised to do their homework and absorb as much information as they can on current events, Delta’s financial situations and its people. The company also encourages its job applicants to arrive early and dress the part.  

Delta has a diverse pool of applicants that all have varying skillsets. Delta tries to look for candidates that represent its core values of “honesty, integrity, respect, perseverance and service,” said Morgan Durrant, a Delta spokesperson.

The average salary for an Atlanta flight attendant is around $42,116, according to Glassdoor

An easy way for a job candidate to stand out is to “respond quickly, provide accurate information and have done their research regarding Delta Air Lines in terms of company history,” Durrant said. “Having a genuinely positive attitude and warm gracious smile goes a long way."
