Fun but tiring experience.

Aircraft Appearance Tech (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time for less than a year

Pros-Flight benefits of course. :)
-Great pay with frequent raises.
-Great Health Benefits.
-Fun and Exciting Culture.
-Lots of paid time off.
-Week of training at HQ in Dallas. Such a fun experience!

Cons-Bad schedule (worked third shift) and cause you bid by seniority I had pretty bad days off.
-Also working on third shift had a fair amount of weird/grumpy coworkers.
-Being part of a union....absolutely aweful with a shady union rep.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut the seniority shenanigans. Take care of your high performing employees and allow position promotions to be based more by character/specific person than whether the employee has been there for 1 year or 30 years.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
