    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Southwest Airlines in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Typical behavioral interview, asked question like "what are strengths and weaknesses", and "what do you do in your free time." Also, spoke for quite some time about position and decision making process. Very scripted. Was told I might be flown out and asked for my drivers license info, next day received an email (not a personal one, sent to all who were rejected) saying I wasn't selected

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Southwest Airlines in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Got a phone call from the HR department to setup a phone interview. The next day I received an email with further information about how the interview process would work. A few days later was my interview. The phone interview, which lasted about 15 minutes, consisted of an explanation of the internship and benefits. Everyone I spoke to was very friendly.

    • It was very much a conversation, nothing out of the expected questions. Make sure when they ask your "weakness" you have one that does not infer with the jobs functions.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Southwest Airlines in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview came first. A few questions about skills involved in the work, not tough. Then I was invited to an on-site interview.
    Before the interview there were some forms to fill, for background check. I was interviewed by HR and the supervisor of the dept I applied. Most questions were technical. They are friendly and considerate, but I did not find myself into this position actually...
    Suggestions: show your passion and your expertise! You must be an expert in the specific position you applied.
