Southwest Airlines Reviews

Southwest Airlines Phoenix Reservations Center was my first job after my debilitating car accident, that left me wheelchair-bound. I didn’t know it at the time, but they were preparing me for my hard-core Sales Job at Direct Alliance/INSIGHT. At Direct Alliance, I became one of the top salespersons and was awarded multiple all-expenses-paid trips, as a result. Without Southwest, I don’t think I would’ve performed near as well! They are hiring on a regular basis, throughout the country. My good friend Aaron had always wanted to be a Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant, so I suggested he accept a referral, work at the Reservations Center for one year and then apply for a flight attendant position. Aaron did that and he’s been a Southwest Flight Attendant, for several years now! He loves it and he might never have lived this dream without first working at the Reservations Center!

I absolutely LOVE my company! My airline provides excellent benefits as well as excellent work perks! Our retirement opportunities are amazing as well as our profit sharing! I would encourage any one who is interested in working for an airline to give my company a try!
As a flight attendant, wife and mother of two I am able to have a successful work-life balance. I couldn't imagine doing anything else! This career and industry is great for anyone!
Southwest Airlines is a great company with a bright future. However the airline industry is extremely volatile and competitive and long term success is never a guarantee. The company has grown from a small, under dog start up to a large international carrier and as a result is experiencing a few growing pains that most large companies experience. The culture has changed somewhat from its inception. This is neither bad nor unexpected, just a challenge. Overall, Southwest is hands down the best air carrier to work for and I am confident they will find a way to overcome the present challenges.
