Delta Air Lines in the U.S.A. said it plans to hire more than 1,000 flight attendants in 2019! This comes after they hired about 1,700 cabin crew wherein they received about 270,000 applicants! That means, only 0.6% from the total number of applicants were accepted, even lower than the percentage of applicants who get accepted at Harvard University!
To be able to qualify to work as a cabin crew at Delta, applicants must be able to work at a flexible schedule, have a high school degree or GED, and be at least 21 years old by Jan. 1, 2019. The applicant must be able to work in the United States and be fluent in English.
Based also on Delta's job descriptions, the applicant most likely to get the job would have additional education, fluency in another language, more than a year of work experience, experience in customer service, or experience in roles requiring specialized safety training or care of others.
Delta says that their ideal candidate "should be a service-oriented professional who loves to be on the go, help others, and enjoy variety in your work. You should be excited at the prospect of solving problems and going the extra mile to leave our passengers with a positive experience that lasts long after their flights have landed. The idea of joining a stable, profitable company, and building a lasting career while enjoying flight benefits that are the envy of the marketplace should excite you!"
