    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Health Insurance and free flight benefits

    Cons

    If you take up for yourself against a union worker while your still on probation, the entire Ramp Agent Supervisors will make sure you get fired without discussing anything with you. I should know they did it to me.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. TALK to new hires, don't just take FRANKS word for everything.
