Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines.

Interview

The process was easy going. I was contacted by a recruiter and given an initial phone interview. Then the recruiter gave me a date and time for my face-to-face interview. It was easy to find where I needed to go, because when I arrived at the airport I just explained to one of the customer service agents at the ticket counter what I was there for. They contacted the necessary personnel and gave me instructions as to where I would wait. After a few minutes of waiting, a manager came to get me and I was taken to a private conference room for the interview.

    Interview

    The F2F interview was easy going, there were two people involved, one was from people's department in Southwest the second was a senior ramp agent, we sat around a small circular table and they asked a few questions. They mentioned southwest's three characteristics, of which I only remember warrior spirit. They asked how would u describe yourself with those characteristics.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Elk Grove, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was a little token off on no additional work experience could be added and the rush of the interview. I wasn't able to vocalize how much experience I have in similar duties. And I wasn't asked specific questions. Almost felt doomed from the start. Entirely too fast less than ten minutes. I couldn't express I took a ramp agent communication course. He was a really nice gentleman off interview but cold during interview time and real short.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Denver, CO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the position online. I got a call a couple weeks later from a recruiter who told me that I needed to fix a few things on my application so she could schedule me for a 1 on 1 interview. She never answered anytime I called but she always returned my call within a few hours. The the 1 on 1 interview took awhile because there were a lot of people. But I finally got a 1 on 1 and he liked my responses to his questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines in July 2015.

    Interview

    Once I completed on-line application and phone interview, I was notified by my recruiter I was scheduled for my f2f with HR manager and supervisor. The moment I entered the SWA facility, I knew I was in the right place. I was greeted by personnel with big smiles and felt the positive atmosphere. I was interviewed by HR manager and ramp supervisor. The entire interview took an hour to complete, I had a great experience interacting with the HR department. I completed all the documents required for my access badge, background investigation and finger printing. I was also told to frequently check my emails, an will I will be scheduled to take a UA test. All in all, it is a due process and you will have to be patient. If you have a criminal history or abused drugs in the past, the investigating company will find out.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Bwi Airport, MD) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied about a month or two ago and I had the telephone interview and it went well but unfortunately I received an email saying they already made the decision and it wasn't in my favor. Needless to say I didn't give up, I applied two more times and I received an email asking me to fill out my employment history and I did that immediately and then some lady emailed me asking me if I would be interested in a interview and of course I was. So today I went for the interview and I had a ok time it was just a normal interview and I answered all the questions as profoundly as possible lol. So me and the interviewer hit it off had some fun she told me she would let me know after 2weeks when they do my background check. I believe I got th job! It was very easy.
