Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

fligth perks, buddy passes. thats about all you can really hope for working here. and spouses and parents fly free.

Cons

manual ot, favoritism, racism in Newark Airport , Cargo Dept, and ramp agents. low wages , unrealistic work expectations, hostile enviorment (employees vs managers or make sure you cover your ass because they are trying to get you ). all for about 12 bycks an hour. not worth it.

Advice to Management

treat EWR like the other airports and make it a comfortable place again.

    I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and perks, empowered employees, opportunity for advancement, play hard and work hard, lots of training opportunities. Treat employees VERY well! Incredible culture. Truly a company that you can start and end your career with, especially if you are willing to relocate for promotions.

    Cons

    Lower pay for corporate positions than at other Fortune 500 companies

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing salaries. It's disheartening to spend years working for a company you love and watch people who left the company come back and get higher salaries. The motivation is to leave SWA and come back to get any kind of measurable salary increase.
