How To Become A Delta Flight Attendant

Posted May 20th, 2013 in Requirements by Judith Howe

There is nothing more exciting than the opportunity to become a flight attendant and fly the friendly skies. Many individuals opt for this rewarding career. Not only does it give them the chance to become a part of a team and provide a valuable service, it also gives them a chance to travel around the world!

The history of Delta Airlines is one of diversity, and it is growing each day in an effort to accommodate a worldwide need. Every day, the company is adding new flights, and developing new areas that will enable them to reach a broader customer base.

To become a delta flight attendant, the person applying for the position must have a high school diploma and be at least eighteen years old. This is required just to apply. There are certain positions that require more, but this is the starting point. Delta presents a unique opportunity for anyone who speaks more than one language.

The first step in the process is the online assessment and application. This starts the ball rolling, and is intended to get the prospective candidate into the system and onto the next step, which is the phone interview. The initial phone interview is a series of up to five questions painting a broad picture of your customer services abilities and capabilities.

Once that is completed, the individual is informed that they will be contacted by a representative and given the next step in the process. After a short wait time, the person applying will receive another email to inform them of what to do. It is usually to schedule another phone interview with a senior recruiter.

This call delves a little more deeply into the applicant’s personality. The recruiter is looking for insight into how the applicant handles stressful situations. In most cases this call ends with an invitation to fly to Atlanta for an in-person interview. The Atlanta portion of the process starts as a group session.

A Delta representative speaks a little about the position and each candidate introduces his or her self. It is here that the candidate can share their qualifications, including fluency in any languages they speak. There is a brief break with refreshments, and individual interviews follow.

During the break, the prospective candidates will have a chance to interact with a few of Delta’s flight attendants. This interaction is twofold. It gives the candidate a chance to ask questions, and it gives the flight attendants an opportunity to see how well each applicant mingles.

If the interview goes well and the applicant is hired they will be sent to HR to fill out the necessary forms for employment. Anyone, who does not pass this part of the interview, will be sent back into the conference room and they will be thanked for coming, encouraged to come back and reapply, and given the best instructions to return to the airport for departure.

Although, it may sound like a lengthy process it is a progressive way of picking those individuals who are best suited for the position. The best way handle the interview is to be prepared by doing some research and be confident.

I hope this post gives you a good idea of what things look like behind the doors of Delta Airlines. If you are serious about starting a career as Commercial Airline Flight Attendant, then read The Essential Guide To Becoming A Flight Attendant - Kiki Ward explains it all!
