    Flight Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position on 9/16/16 by a referral of a SW employee. I immediately received an email the next day saying they had received my application and and would contact me as soon as they could. In December or January I received another email saying I needed to fill out a questionnaire. I filled it out and just heard back from them on 6/7/17 for a phone interview on 6/9/17. I just completed my phone interview which was very nerve wrecking. The interviewer Ishmal was very nice and courteous. He told me that I would be hearing back from him soon. He said that they were currently in a 2-3 week wait for call backs for a f2f if I was chosen or I would get an email stating that I was not chosen. I put no offer as I have no yet been accepted or declined. Will update once I find out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in Aug 2016. Received call for phone interview end of May 2017. Had f2f beginning of June 2017. Received CJO day after f2f. Waiting for class (hopefully the one in October 2017)...It's a long process as they have a ton of applications to get through, so patience is required.

    Preparing for all the questions people have already listed on here really helped. There was just the one I posted I didn't expect, but I managed to still give a great answer. The most important thing is to just be yourself. They really try to make you feel comfortable during the interviews, so they can really get to know you, and see if you're a great fit for the job :)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the coordinator position in March and was contacted in May about a phone interview. I was asked to do an in-person interview in June. SW paid for my flight to Dallas, TX. The interview went good and felt very comfortable. Then a few days later I was offered the job. Unfortunately, since the interview process took so long I was not able to accept the position because I had already moved.

    A week after applying you get a phone call from a recruiter asking you several questions they were given with specific answers referring to general aircraft maintenance

    You then go in for a face to face interview with several managers and an HR representative. The environment is very relaxed and they want to know how well you can interact and fit in with the group.

    The process took about 3 months. I applied online and about two months later I got call to set up a phone interview. The interview was easy, recruiters make sure you are comfortable and have the time to talk about yourself. After the phone interview (which lasted around 30 minutes), I received another call for an in person interview at Southwest Airlines HQ. The recruiters asked about past work and how you fit in Southwest Airline's culture. About two weeks later, I got a call back for an offer.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in May 2017.

    I originally applied for the summer 2017 internship and was notified that I did not get it. Four months later I was contacted by a campus recruiter asking for my resume and updated portfolio and if I was interested in the same internship but for the fall. Fours hours after I sent her this, the recruiter asked if I want to do a phone interview and at the end of my phone interview asked me to come down to Dallas for an in person interview. I was interviewed by the campus recruiter and three other individuals from the department I was applying for. They asked basic behavioral questions and had me walk the through my portfolio. Four hours after my interview they called to offer me the internship.
