    Flying for free was cool.. But I never had the time to to do it. Never used the insurance. Signed up for matching benefits. They took a lot out of my paycheck. I made practically nothing and it's a very stressful physically demanding job. Southwest mentality of bags fly free was ultimately going to break my back.

    Great benefits, flight benefits on Southwest themselves plus discounted flights on other airlines. 401k matching, the percentage depends on department but generally pretty high and profit sharing after 1 full calendar year with company. The work can be easy one day, tough the very next but benefits are worth it.
