    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview that lasts about 5-7 minutes, very simple straight forward, academic curriculum kind of questions. If selected you go to corporate office for an interview with 3 people. Hr, director and manager from the department. Lot of behavioral questions on weaknesses, group leadership, ask you for an essay. Resume questions, why south west, why purchasing, why should we hire you, what would you be doing in the long term.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, please go after this internship since learning matters more than earning for interns. Great atmosphere, great culture and relaxed parties every week. Southwest is the best place to work in my opinion, you do not see companies like SWA in today's picture. Out of 5000 applicants 50 get selected.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very straight forward. I got a phone interview first thing in the morning and passed. Basically just a once-over of the resume and any questions SWA had about it. The panel interview was with 2 department heads and an HR rep. We went over behavioral questions and skill questions. Not too hard.
