I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Wonderful benefits, freedom to fly about the country, flexible hours, great opportunities. We work hard, and play hard...and LUV every minute!

Cons

Salary is not terrific, but the benefits make up for a lot

Advice to Management

Keep the communication flowing, clear, concise and to the point. Doing this well now but would like a little more in depth in certain areas

    I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent and inexpensive benefits (medical, health and free flights -- standby!), good camaraderie. Different events to show the company's "appreciation" of you,

    Cons

    Very low starting wage. Be careful of the union not protecting you for the first 7 or so months of your job. In the reservation center, if you do well, expect that you'll be asked for more responsibility but without any sort of pay increase despite dealing with pissed off customers and co-workers asking ridiculous questions despite having over 5-10+ years more tenure than yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize your systems, especially the webste so that your site doesn't go down during EVERY sale. It's time to clean house of some of your more tenured employees who know less than the newbies on the floor.
