Customer Care Representative Interview

Customer Care Representative
San Antonio, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Southwest Airlines in June 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online and received a phone interview about a week later. Before the phone interview was over, I was invited to a 1:1 interview. I was also told to expect an email with further instructions. The email contained the background check information as well as the drug screening process.

1:1 interview went well. I felt I was overly qualified but have been told by other SWA employees to take what is available to simply get into the system. A couple of days after the interview, I was called and offered a position.

Is followed with 90 day eval and 6 mos probation.
