Glassdoor is your free inside look at Southwest Airlines reviews and ratings — including employee satisfaction and approval rating for Southwest Airlines CEO Gary C. Kelly. All reviews posted anonymously by Southwest Airlines employees.
Current Employee – been working at Southwest Airlines full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Free flights (no international) just domestic.
Cons – Low starting salary~ flights are full and very tough to fly standby.~ MANDATORY OVERTIME ALWAYS~ Don't think of going home when your shift ends~~ you're told your shift is NOT ending and you're expected to work overtime~ if you say no~~ bye bye ~~ can't refuse. Meanwhile managers ~ are never around ~ as is the CEO, they all hang out in their air conditioned or heated offices~~ clueless. Morale stinks. They keep trying to pour kool aid on you.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire MORE people~ STOP the mandatory overtime. Get a REAL clue about life for the workers.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
