    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was an easy task to apply for jobs on their website since they have many postings periodically. But since there is heavy competition for their jobs, it gets difficult to find the job the time you want it. I applied for Spring, Summer and Fall and I ended up getting one in Fall

    Interview

    The interview process was very comfortable. They truly want to get to know you to see if you are a good fit for the Southwest company culture. They ask basic questions during the phone interview then the next interview is in a group setting and the questions are a bit more personal.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Start with the phone interview and wait for about 3 weeks and got an interview invitation. The people are all nice and friendly! They asked basic questions like what did you do and what is your personal goal. Not that difficult but I did not well prepared, so I didn't get the offer from them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview, one in person interview with a member of the Campus Reach team and a hiring manager from your department. Fairly easy process, it's all behavioral questions that help the recruiters get to know you as a person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Initial application, followed by a couple of phone screens, then an in person interview at HQ in Dallas. This was spread out from October to March, definitely a long process. The interviewers were all very friendly and helpful, and provided great feedback even if they didn't give an offer. My only complaint would be the time that the process took. There were long delays at some stages.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The interview process was long but straightforward. Once you speak to a recruiter and go through a phone interview, if they are interested they will fly you to Dallas to meet you in person. Usually, interviews are in a small room with a recruiter and hiring manager(s). Overall very conversational, they are a laid back company and try to convey that image from the moment you walk into the building.
