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

Pros

Great people. Management was very friendly, including those at the top at my station. Very helpful when it comes towards the job. The overtime pay is nice when available.

Cons

The pay is pretty awful starting out. The job is an outdoor position, so if you don't like the weather, you may not like the job. The hours can be pretty brutal.

Advice to Management

Please fix our stuff! We constantly have broken equipment that needs fixing.

    I worked at Southwest Airlines as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, great work-life balance, very festive, high number of after-work parties.

    Cons

    Cubicles are cramped, too many people in a small amount of space, awful parking lot

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating employees well. Consider treating contractors just as well. Get more office space and build a parking garage so employees don't have to get soaked walking into the building on rainy days.
