DL Three Digit Employee Codes?

I was recently reading some old issues of the "Delta Digest" employee magazine. I noticed that Delta employees are identified by a three digit code followed by their city code, e.g.:

953/ATL
250/ATL
610/ATL
252/ATL
125/ATL
283/ATG
779/ATG
799/ATG
602/ATG
654/CVG
610/MCO
610/JFK
654/DFW
125/SNA

What do these codes refer to? Presumably department and/or specific work location?

What is ATG? Does that refer to the headquarters complex? Or the TOC?

These are employee departments (or classifications).

125= Customer service (above wing)

250= Line maintenance

610= Inflight

Pretty sure that 654 is res, but I'll let someone else confirm that.

Not sure about the other ones.

ATG is Tech Ops (base maintenance)

Any of the departments that say "ATG" after them are within the Atlanta General Office.



Dept. 654 is indeed Reservations. 120 is ramp/operations (below wing). 110 is station manager/director, depending on the size of the station.



Don't know if they still use 135, but it used to be the code for air cargo, systemwide. Then, when it became a separate division, instead of just a department, it became 807, particularly at the larger stations or hubs.

I've only seen the 807 & 808 lately... No clue if 135 still exists/is used.

My brother worked at NW and my impression was from him, they purposely are reworking the numbers system at DL to mask who came from where. Due to the long divide at NW v Republic. (and now DL)


I understand we may someday have the same at UACO, but for now my vintage CO number works just fine. I believe I may have a new "U" number someplace, but I have no idea. (nor care)


Frankly I feel this is all window dressing. I will proudly tell any and everyone I am from CO,and I ALWAYS will. Likewise I would respect the same in return from UA. If nothing else it helps us understand where we each came from. Lets not ignore that past, but build on it.

Employee numbers themselves were issued quite awhile ago, for the exact reason(s) you mentioned.

The 3 digit numbers the OP was asking about relate to the divison (or job classification) any given employee works in.

I believe it still is. The three letter codes make it easier for mail, comat, etc. to be routed to the proper department. I delivered comat from air cargo to the various departments at SLC for a couple of years and it makes it much easier.

With the merger all PMDL and PMNW employees were issued new employee numbers, with some extra zeros as potential "placeholders" that may be used at some time in the future to designate base assignments, status or whatever the companay decides to use them for. No one can tell who came from where by their employee number.

I believe the OP mistook the department numbers for employee numbers. I believe they may have increased the number of digits in the employee numbers because of the increase in employees. Sometime in the 70s, they did the same thing and added two or three zeroes to the end of my number.

No, All PMDL people were not issued new employee numbers .......

I wish I knew where people come up with things and how crap gets started. The extra zeros "to designate base assignments, status or whatever the company decides to use them for" phenomena was started well before the merger - like 4 - 6 years before the merger. PMDL peeps never got new employee numbers. They just got a 0 on the front and two on the back (technically 'new' I suppose) and that was 4-6 years before the merger (or more) when more and more HR functions become automated. It wasn't really "here's your new number", it was "here is this fancy new pass card with a PPR - primary pass rider - number on it with a 0 in front of your employee number and 00 after it, use it when you nonrev." Then, extranet came along and they said "use it to log in there too".

And so it goes......

Right, and the PPR isn't really an employee number - one's employee number is usually the PPR minus leading zero(s) and the last two zeros at the end, which for DLX employees, contains their "airline code".

But it is indeed confusing for DL employees, because when asked for their "employee number", one may have to enter their actual employee number or their PPR (e.g. ordering uniforms).

It is true--to access my email I just use the "middle" six digits. But I have to tell you--I went from a five-digit to a six-digit to a NINE digit number--that took a while to remember! And just for the record, I wish DL would stop using acronyms like "PPR." There are far too many to remember. New Rule---if you want to introduce a new acronym you have to retire two!

In the case of new numbers for both sides, look no further than the company itself. We were told this multiple times during the early stages of the merger.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

The codes are department and routing cldes United uses te same types of codes and they're for manpower and profit center accounting as each dividion generates and reports thir business forecast for the coming year and planned expenditures for the previous year My department : aircraft maintenence Div # 86, department 8651 Job grade 80. job code 2842. then employeee Number U0xxxxx. (all numbers) All the manpowert expenditures for my dept and delineated down to the dollar including vacation, sick time, Overtime Ets, All companies do about the same thing even though the numbers including THESE might be diferent. We al so and Delta alo has SITA addressed to communicateall over the system
Line Maintenece XXXMM, (San Francisco = SFOMMUA) the Airline has the designators for the routing they Choose.
At Newark UA's Mechanics are EWRMM, while CO's are EWRMX whether that changes in the future I have no Idea.,
CO's Maint control answers to Tech OPS Maint. Control.(TOMC) While the UAL Guys will still answer to System Aircraft Maint. control (SAMC) or the previous Designation Line Maintenence SFOLM, Now OPBLM or just about anything..

I agree with that...and they come out of no where with no warning too. Best new rule I ever heard of!

Funny.........the acronym "PPR" was used for quite a few years before the merger and we never had a problem with it.
