Delta Airlines looking to hire 1000 flight attendants(Video)

Great opp to travel the world

Do you think you've got what it takes to be a flight attendant (watch the video), serving meals and drinks and helping passengers to feel comfortable on planes?  If so, Delta Airlines just announced it is looking to hire 1000 people to fill the job.

The airline posted today that it is looking for   dedicated, service-oriented professionals who love to be on-the-go, help others and enjoy variety in their work.
The bad news is that last year 150,000 applicants applied for roughly 1,200 coveted flight attendant jobs at Delta. After reviewing 35,000 video interviews and conducting 6,000 in-person interviews, fewer than 1 percent of applicants were selected – based on those odds, it's easier to get into an Ivy League school than to become a Delta flight attendant*. "Earning and wearing the wings of Delta is something our flight attendants are proud of and passionate about, as they should be," said Allison Ausband, Delta's Senior Vice President – In-Flight Service.  "After making it through the highly competitive and exhaustive selection process, they put all their previous experience and skills to the test during our flight attendant initial training." 
To accomplish its goal, Delta is launching the 'Earning our Wings' mini-series with  new episodes  posting on Mondays and Thursdays to YouTube and the Delta News Hub for the next ten weeks. The series will  chronicle the journey of five new hires as they make their way through the eight-week training program each new flight attendant must complete at Delta's Atlanta headquarters.
From CPR to putting out (literal) fires and water evacuations to Delta One meal presentation, these new recruits will be put to the test. With the support of their teammates, they will have to find it in themselves to accomplish each of the challenges they face. In the end, will they have what it takes to represent Delta and earn their wings? 
​Are you an ideal candidate?
First you must have a high school degree or GED, the ability to work in the U.S., English fluency and be at least 21 years of age by Jan. 1, 2018. Since Delta flights operate day and night, year-round, flight attendants must work a flexible schedule. It also helps if:
  • You have more than one year of work experience in a personalized customer service, patient care or similar role
  • Experience in a role ensuring the safety and/or care of others (teacher, military, EMT, firefighter, coach, law enforcement, lifeguard, nurse, etc.)
  • Education beyond high school
  • Fluency in a language other than English: These applicants are considered for "Language of Destination" flight attendant roles, which offer additional pay as well as special responsibilities
