Purchasing Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

Positive Experience
Average Interview


The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in February 2010.


Once you pass the phone interview you are brought in for a panel interview. They make cuts after the panel interview and then the final interview is with people from the department, and they describe their current jobs to you and you can ask them questions. Then there is a 1 on 1 interview with upper management, which is fairly short and painless. The longest portion is the first group discussion. It is very laid back and easy going, everyone is friendly and encouraging.

This company is difficult to get into, but once you're're in. Don't be concerned if you don't like the offer, you can move up, down, all around within your first year at this company.
