    Average Interview

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


    Applied online, heard back about a month later. Was invited to a phone interview with HR. After the phone interview, a week or 2 later, I was invited to an in person interview. The interview lasted about 20 minutes, I was surrounded by teams. At the end of the interview I was thanked and was told to expect a phone call. About a week later I received the decision. Overall the interview process was simple, questions were personality based on the phone and experience based for the in person part.

    Tell me about a time where you had a disagreement with your coworkers.
