Delta Assessments

Depending on the Delta career you're after, you may encounter a different hiring process. 

Delta Flight Attendant Hiring Process

The hiring process for Delta flight attendants includes a problem solving test, virtual job tryout, and interview.

In order to be eligible for this role, here are the minimum qualifications:

  • Able to work in the US.
  • At least 21 years old
  • High school diploma/GED
  • Fluent in English
  • Able to acquire/having a passport & documents to freely enter and exit Delta flight areas.
  • Able to pass a drug test and comprehensive background check
  • Physically able to handle the duties and conditions of flight attendance
  • Note that you may also be required to receive a COVID vaccine

The hiring process for delta flight attendants starts with the Delta Talent Assessment. it is a problem solving test, meant to challenge a candidate's adaptability and other qualities.

Delta Virtual Job Tryout

After the talent assessment, you will take a virtual job tryout- this test puts you in realistic flight attendant-related scenarios and asks you to choose the correct course of action, similar to a situational judgement test.

This test is divided into 6 different parts:


1- Handle Work Challenges

This part of the situational judgement test puts you in theoretical scenarios common to the flight attendant role. You will then be asked which statements from a list are you most and least likely to respond with. 


2 - Serve Your Passengers

This section has you making logistical decisions about flight attendance. You will be provided a seat plan, inventory, and other resources and must decide how to help passengers wishing to switch seats, distribute food/beverages correctly, and more.


3 - Understand Passengers

This test measures your ability to show empathy by detecting emotions. You will listen to recordings of passengers and must decide which emotion they display.

Note that you should try and remember these passengers for section 5, which will test your memory of them.


4 - Tell Us Your Story

This section includes questions about your aspirations and experiences. How long do you see yourself working at Delta? What is the longest you have stayed with an employer? How would others rate your drive to become a top performer?


5 - Recall Passenger Needs

This section measures your ability to remember the needs of passengers by asking you about those you listened to earlier in section 3.

You will be given a small hint to help you remember the specific passengers, and will need to recall the contents of their requests and questions.


6 - Describe Your Approach

For this final section, you will be shown pairs of statements, and must choose which one of each pair is more like you. 

These statements are always contrasted ("Sometimes coworkers frustrate me"/"I am never frustrated with my coworkers"), and are meant to see what type of person you are, and if you are trustworthy. 

At this stage, you will take a Delta Live Online Interview through Hirevue Live.

Delta Hiring Tips

  • Ask questions – This is your chance to not only get clarification but to show the interviewer that you're truly interested.
  • Dress the part – Dress professionally and tidily.
  • Arrive early – This gives you time to practice your interview responses and to figure out where you're going. It also helps make a good impression.
  • Do your research – Don’t wing the interview(s); spend time assessing the job position and the company.
  • Practice – Practice your answers and interview skills so that you won't be as nervous and can appear confident. 

Delta Interviews

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

It is essential to prepare for your interviews as this is your chance for employers to get to know you.

The phone interview is just as it sounds—you are called and asked some basic questions (availability, salary requirements, experience, etc.).

The video interview is set up so that you receive the interview questions via email, but instead of talking and interacting with a person, you record your interview answers on the computer and then submit them to the recruiter.

If you pass the phone and/or computer interview successfully, you are then invited to schedule a face-to-face meeting. You may encounter a one-on-one face-to-face interview, a panel interview, or a group interview.

The group interview can be 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 completed, everyone watches an informative Delta tutorial video.

Delta highly encourages its interviewees to answer interview questions using the STAR method, to ensure you respond 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 from them; Delta wants to be sure it's hiring the right employees.
