I was very happy with the overall experience. The Captain does a great job first thing in the morning of settling your nerves the best he can considering the circumstances. He gives you a summary of the day and the plans moving forward for Delta. Split into 2 groups. I had my HR interview in the morning. First group went at 8:30 and mine was at 10:30. I was really happy with the overall experience during the HR portion. First half was application questions and getting to know me. That was fairly straight forward. Signed certain portions of the application for accuracy and then got into the Tell me about yourself as well as a few other questions.  Second half were the TMAAT and WWYD. I only received one TMAAT and it was when I offered good customer service. I was surprised by my number of WWYD questions. But nothing I hadn’t prepared for. (view the study guide of this website).  Progresses to the point of pro standards.... Continue Reading this Interview Experience

  1. May 16, 2022 All the scenarios here were spot on, interview took about 45 minutes, followed by MMPI. The people the suffered the most were the ones who had there interview after lunch. I think they got stressed and psyched themselves out. Out of 23 we had 18 pass. Just stay calm, have some stories about your career, and relax! I did no prep other than browsing the questions from here and having some stories ready to pull from. Make sure your paperwork is exactly as they asked it from the email....

  2. May 11, 2022 The gouges were spot on. Very laid back process and they wanted to see you succeed. It was a long process and started at 6:45 and I didn’t get done till after 4pm. Best advice is be yourself, be personable and portray a professional individual which is who they are looking for. Don’t worry about wearing a red tie and a blue suit, they don’t care about that. Best interview experience I’ve ever had. I didn’t do anything else to prep for it or prepare my... Continue reading this interview experience

  3. May 04, 2022 Very long day with an early start at 6:45am. They base your interview time that day dependent upon what time your flight is, so if you are local expect to interview last. That was my case and I didn't start until 10am. So you show up early and sit around for 2 hours trying to find time to kill and distract yourself. The museum was closed that day so we just walked to the cafeteria. MMPI took most about an hour to an hour and 10 but it took me a little longer. Got done at 11:50 and rolled...

  4. May 04, 2022 Delta Air Lines is the Flagship. It shows in how well-oiled their processes and procedures are to interview you. If invited, Delta wants to hire you! The red carpet is rolled out for you as a valued candidate. I was completely impressed. Best process I have experienced. The day started out at 0645 sharp. The Delta Selection Admin Manager met us in the lobby and gave us a run down of the day. She then lined us up to take us into a smaller room for document delivery. The first rule...

  5. May 03, 2022 They really make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed. Out of the 25 of us, only 3 weren’t selected. Make sure your paperwork is exactly how they want it, practice your “about you” answer, and have the ability to answer 6-7 TMAAT and WWYD questions. Most questions were about my resume. I also practiced the MMPI before I went in, so I knew exactly how to answer them. I used a prep service, but they know people are using them. They want authentic and genuine answers. I...

  6. May 02, 2022 Long day, but not difficult. They do their best to put you at ease. The biggest killers of the day were not having the requested paperwork or not having your application in order.  Day starts at 0645. They come in, introduce themselves, and tell you no cellphones or smartwatches for the rest of the time you’re on campus. Then they take you into a room and start collecting the requested paperwork/documents and check your negative Covid test results. Make sure you’re... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Apr 29, 2022 All the other descriptions are pretty accurate. Its starts off early at 645. There were about 24 interviewees. They give a friendly introduction and a schedule is posted describing who does what, when. Some people go straight to the interview panel and some start the MMPI. Most of us had completed both prior to lunch break at 11am, but a few had to wait until after lunch to do the interview panel. A lot of gouges mention how chill and friendly the interview panel is, but mine was not;... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Apr 28, 2022 Delta interview process is a LONG day. Expect HR panel with an introduction, a couple of scenario questions and a couple of TMAATs. We didn't make it to "why Delta". MMPI was 560-ish questions, true/false. Just answer honestly, go with your gut reaction and don't overthink the semantics of the question. Definitely don't think "how does Delta want me to answer?". Just be honest. Phsyc interview was via zoom, and consisted of 'tell me how you handle stress' and 'tell me... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Apr 27, 2022 Fantastic experience all around, made even better by receiving the CJO. It’s an early wake up for an interview to be sure, but it’s a pretty packed day. Everything you read here is accurate. They bend over backwards to make you comfortable and at ease, while acknowledging the stress you may be under. They don’t take it lightly at all. Follow the instructions, answer everything truthfully, smile, be happy to be there. They thoroughly look through your application,... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Apr 26, 2022 By far the best experience I've had with any airline interview! From the hotel employees, to the Delta gate guards and museum employees everyone is rooting for you and wishing you good luck. I did interview prep and I'm sure it helped, but they just want to get to know you. My interview was scheduled for 60 minutes, lasted for 75 minutes, but felt like 10 minutes as the time flew by. Most my questions were tailored to my resume / application and where specific to me. Recommend thinking of... Continue reading this interview experience
