About Two Applications Came In Every Minute For The Positions
When Delta recently posted 300 flight attendant jobs outside the company, the response it got seems to indicate that there are still a lot of people in the country looking for a job. The airline received 22,000 applications for the 300 openings in the first week of the posting, or about 73 hopeful employees for every job.
Delta CEO Richard Anderson said in a weekly recorded message to employees that the applications had arrived at a pace of about two per minute, according to Bloomberg Business News. He said that the airline would be seeking new FAs with such skills as the ability to speak a second language for the global expansion the carrier has planned.
One of the attractions for the jobs is the perk of flight privileges for employees. And it's not the first time that Delta has seen overwhelming response to one of its postings. The airline reported that when it posted 1,000 jobs in October, 2010, it received about 100 applicants for every position ... or 100,000 resumes.
This latest round could reach as many as 400 positions, according to Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton. She said up to 30 percent of those hired will be multilingual, with a focus on candidates able to speak Japanese, Hindi, Mandarin, or Portuguese along with other languages. The airline said it plans begin conducting interviews next month, with the new flight attendants making their first flights in June.
