    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    1. Apply online, if you are selected, you will be contacted for phone interview
    2. Phone interview - resume questions, why southwest airlines? why do you choose tax
    3. Onsite interview - still some resume questions, prepare your own questions to ask
    4. Wait for decision
    The process is really long, around one to two months. Be patient.
