    I have been working at Southwest Airlines as an intern

    Pros

    The Perks!!! Free flights to anywhere in the U.S (they have also added Mexico recently). Casual work atmosphere, work hard-party hard culture, friendly & helpful people around, great location

    Cons

    My position specifically lacked technical challenges. The internship management could be much better and they communicate less frequently during the application process (understandable due to the number of applications)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some thought to resource management. Interns can be placed in departments more relevant to their skill set.

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Southwest Airlines in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an online application. A couple days later I got an email to fill out a more detailed online application. I was called for a phone interview the next week. I was scheduled for a face to face interview the following week. I went to the face to face interview and was interviewed by an HR person and a ramp agent supervisor. They asked me about my work history, the duties of the position, three qualities a ramp agent should have, my willingness to do mandatory OT and shift work, my past experience with OT and shift work, how I handled a disagreement with a coworker, what I thought the most difficult part of the position was, and more. They said they had more interviews to do this week and would get back to me next week regardless if I was hired or not They were very friendly and professional.
