Delta Assessment Tests

Depending on the mechanic position you're applying to, you may encounter a general mechanical aptitude test or the Bennett Mechanical Aptitude test. 

General mechanical aptitude tests cover mechanics (energy, forces and motion, levers, pulleys, springs, etc.) and electricity (voltage, circuits, and magnetism).

Bennett Mechanical Aptitude Test

The Bennett Mechanical Aptitude Test is broken into two versions - the BMCT I and BMCT II. The BMCT I consists of 68 multiple-choice questions and has a 30-minute time limit. It can be administered on paper or online and is available in two forms, Form S and Form T. The BMCT II consists of 55 multiple-choice questions and has a 25-minute time limit. It is administered online only.

Some of the topics covered on the test are acoustics, belt drives, center of gravity, centrifugal force, electricity, gears, gravity and velocity, heat, hydraulics, inertia, levers, optics, planes and slopes, pulley systems, shapes and volume, structures, resolution and forces.

Delta Interviews

Delta has a multi-step interview process, but it's important to note that different job positions can add or omit interviews or hiring steps. However, the typical interview process consists of a phone and/or video interview, followed by an in-person interview.

 

If you pass the phone and/or computer interview successfully, you are then invited to schedule a face-to-face interview. This interview is a bit unusual as there can be 30–50 other candidates at the same venue as you. This is because Delta splits the candidates into groups that rotate between three stations: informative presentation, interview in front of two or more panel members, and team exercises. Once this is done, everyone watches an informative Delta tutorial video.

Delta highly encourages its interviewees to answer interview questions using the STAR method. This is to ensure that you answer deliberately and effectively.

If you pass the interview(s), then the next step is waiting to hear back from Delta regarding a potential job offer. Don’t be surprised if it takes time to hear back; Delta wants to be sure it's hiring the right employees.


Delta Interview Questions

As mentioned before, Delta has multiple rounds of interviews. It is important to prepare for each step of the hiring process, but especially for interviews, as this is your chance for employers to get to know you.

Here are some typical interview questions you might encounter:

  • Describe a time you had to adapt to a new experience in the work place.
  • Describe a time when you worked on a team and one of the members was not doing their part/pulling their share of the work. How did you respond to the situation? What was the outcome?
  • You see a coworker taking inventory from the plane and then preparing to de-board. You think he/she may be stealing. What would you do in this situation?
