Delta Air Lines hiring more than 1,000 flight attendants

Wanted: 1,000 new Delta Air Lines flight attendants. The Atlanta based airline says the positions that are up for grabs start work in 2018 - but competition will be tough.

Last year, 150,000 people applied for about 1,200 jobs and less than one percent of the applicants were eventually hired.

Delta says it is a highly competitive and exhaustive selection process. They say entry-level flight attendants earn about $25,000 per year.

Here's a list of key responsibilities from the website's job description:

- Ensure the safety and comfort of our passengers while providing exceptional customer service, at an altitude of at least 8,000 feet
- Participate in preflight briefings and in-flight responsibilities
- Provide assistance lifting and stowing luggage
- Demonstrate the use of safety and emergency equipment and ensure safety requirements are met
- Prepare, serve and sell beverages (including alcohol) and meals (which may include beef, pork, seafood, peanuts, etc.)
- Answer passengers' questions and provide assistance when necessary, particularly those with special needs
- Reassure passengers during the flight, such as when an aircraft experiences delays or hits turbulence
- Administer and coordinate emergency procedures or provide emergency care, as needed
- Respond to and provide clear and accurate directions (verbally or non-verbally) to passengers in the event of an emergency
