    I find opinion on them is split a lot. I think they had a couple years especially when they were in the toilet but have since come back. I've personally always had good experiences traveling Delta.

    If it's the cheapest then do it. Especially if it's direct.

    They've lost my luggage twice (and recovered and then delivered it, luckily) and knowingly put me in the ATL airport overnight :noes: They've also switched my seat on multiple separate flights at their leisure :hsugh: but yes, as IWYWB stated, I believe they're better than they were. My last experience was LAX to HI so I think 5 hours or so and none of the above mentioned happened then.

    Happy travels :)

    It's been liberating.

    Already flicked off one boss to her face and called the other a dick. Rightfully so might I add. My bosses have been horrible and their attitude/reaction did the opposite of spark loyalty in me to continue working for them. I was a workhorse and they used me and took me for granted. Can't wait for this next week to be over!

    I like my boss a lot, and to an extent my company, but I feel kind of under-appreciated too and possibly underpaid. I knew going in that there weren't other positions within my company that I'd want to pursue (it's not an industry I have any passion for) -- during the interview we discussed how they were creating a position ("Office Administrator") and wanted me to grow it as we figured out where I could be most useful. So the original job description only really accounted for traditional receptionist duties that they knew were needed ASAP. As expected, I quickly began taking responsibilities off my boss' plate -- 100% necessary as she does WAY too much.

    Anyway, now it's been a year and the bulk of my duties don't resemble the original job description. I'm regularly doing reports for management in different departments and when/if I ever have downtime I'm trying to learn more in Excel. What's required so far is all beginner level stuff -- I'm usually pulling data from spreadsheets I create or help maintain (or exporting it from a database) and using pivot tables and vlookups for almost everything OR I'm unfortunately reconciling whatever discrepancies exist in other reports as a result of people entering information incorrectly into our database or breaking formulas. I know my boss appreciates that I want to learn more and knows I'm capable, but many of my coworkers haven't got a clue that I do more than answer the phone/greet them/check inventory. If they ever glanced at my monitors they'd know otherwise, but c'est la vie. More importantly, I don't think 'Management' really gets it and I don't know my worth in this job market to really begin negotiating for more pay.

    2397, that is really similar to what happened to me. It took me two years too long to get the balls to finally leave the job and now that I am I am so happy and have a huge weight lifted off of me. Some people might not think my move isn't that wise, but we are young and there's no reason we should feel stuck in our jobs; especially if there truly isn't another role in the company you can move to.

    Executive assistant to EVP, CFO & COO of a large, shipping company here. I'll be a thousand times happier in this role instead of shucking insurance. Insurance industry is the devil.

    i actually met him thrice, first time we had a quick dinner in downtown manhattan, second time he spend a saturday taking me me around where he lives and showed me his place, third time i had a drink with him and Emily (who is similarly awesome)

    he's actually the first american I've had prolonged conversations with so I kept expecting him to do something action hero-y (because Hollywood).

    it was pretty cool having someone who lives there show me around (and show me the best pizza :bigthumb:). the online -> IRL awkwardness was actually much less than i was expecting. and Emily is easily the most effervescent person I've EVER met.

    I offered him a sample of all my best possessions, yes. Emily included. She was a little mad that I hadn't asked for her consent. Pretty cute!
