The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in February 2010.
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.
