    I worked at Southwest Airlines part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone seemed to always be in a happy mood. If you really need a job go for it; not really for people looking for an actual career.

    Cons

    Needs more growth opportunities. Not for career-minded people.

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

    Pros

    You can be yourself...have FUN, enjoy what you do, move around to different departments and cities, and not really worry about layoffs...the Company is stable. They promote from within and offer advancement options to everyone.

    Cons

    Contracts & hours can be long - especially during weather issues. Can be hard to discover all the benefits and opportunities when you are brand new - but once you get the hang of it - the world is the possibility!!! Ask lots of questions!!! Read everything!!! Be informed!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more Employee's their opinions...should be more of a 2-way street.

    I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited flying, great insurance, dollar matching 401k, and most importantly you gain a second family.

    Cons

    You don't get much sleep since you would be working under a union and you could be working up to 70 hours a week if its super busy. There is also a 6 month probation to where you absolutely cannot be late to work or call in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They do not work for a union therefor they can be your worst nightmare at times
