What people are saying about Southwest Airlines
If you had to choose between Southwest Airlines or American as your primary airline, which one would you pick? My SWA A-List status recently expired and I’m considering AA. I live about 45 min from DFW airport (AA hub) and 30 min from Dallas LOVE field (SWA hub). Pre-pandemic, I was SWA A-List Preferred and had companion pass which was a nice perk for the family.

Southwest Airlines Reviews
Southwest was my first job out of college, and I feel so fortunate to have found such a welcoming and encouraging company where I've been able to grow and develop personally and professionally. When first joining, there is *so* much to learn about our operation and culture, and how that sets us apart. From there, there are almost limitless opportunities to continue learning and lean in to our Culture - from taking company-facilitated development classes, to "days in the field", to helping plan our legendary Halloween festivities, to even finding ways to embrace Cohearts in the day-to-day. When you mix in the incredible health benefits, 401k contributions, workperks, profitsharing, education reimbursement, and traveling the world for free (or close to it!) - you really can't beat a company like Southwest. Very thankful for the opportunity to pilot my own career path and work with the very best people along the way!
Southwest has taken incredible strides to continue growing and leaning into opportunities to serve new communities/serve our existing communities even better - including our Employees! This growth can come with growing pains and a feeling of being "disconnected" - especially when it comes to maintaining a work:life balance and seeing the bigger picture of what we're doing There's work being done to keep us all connected through company updates, and make sure that we all know how important one another's roles are. It's been insightful to learn how other parts of the company work, and it really does take *all* of us to maintain that "family feeling."
