    Current Ramp Superivsor in Seattle, Washington State

    Great benefits! Free flights, 9% dollar for dollar 401k match, get vacation time!

    While it's pretty broad, it's a little pricey to cover dependents. SWA appears to not be family oriented as the premium is quite low for single employees with no dependents. Add a spouse and even children and it's pretty high.

    Southwest Airlines had lots of insurance options. I can't think of anything negative I saw in the benefits package.

    Southwest Airlines has lots of great benefits. One of those great benefits is the ability to fly for free and a lot of other things.

    The pay is okay but the benefits are outstanding. 401K plan is superb.

    vesting rate of 20% for every year of work and profit sharing contribution into 401k not as take home
