I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Family within a family, people bond together when there has been a loss of an employee. Company does try at times to keep the company spirit.

Cons

We have lost our company spirit, training lacks as it should be, an e-mail is not sufficient. Communication within departments is lacking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time with all of your employees not just a chosen few.

    I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, Pay (although takes many years (11) to top out at union position. Flight benefits for family.

    Cons

    It appears only the IAD station has issues. I went to Dallas for training and they hype you up only to come back to Dulles to have deal with slander, innuendos, and talked down to from the immediate supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Say what you mean, and do what you say without disparaging remarks and profanity in the workplace.
