    I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than an year)


    Managers and trainers are super people. Overall atmosphere is fun and inviting. Benefits are very strong.


    Union reps are thugs who are an embarrassment to the company and the starting hourly pay is not good for the work you put in. Can't afford to travel nor can you get time off easily to go enjoy free flying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sit in on the speech that the union reps give themes hire classes. Those guys bash management and cuss like drunk sailors.

    Positive Outlook

    Interview Details

    I applied online. The entire process took a little over 3 months. I uploaded my resume, then I heard back from them a month later asking me to write a "Why Southwest" essay. I later had a phone interview, and if you pass that then they will fly you to their headquarters in Dallas.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were typical interview questions. Why are you a good fit for Southwest? What is your biggest weakness? They also asked about my previous internship a lot.   View Answer
