Uppers

Traveling every weekend!

Downers

Sometimes I felt as if the Campus Reach program was too 'fun' and not enough business.

Advice to Potential Interns

I was given a fulltime offer but not many others were. At the beginning of the program they make it seem like there are a lot of opportunities for employment at the end of the internship but quite honestly there were very few. Don't go into the internship expecting a job out of it immediately.

Would You Recommend

Yes

fun, lively environment where everything is tailored towards your betterment

Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself and don't be afraid to brag about what you know. They may place you in a position you didnt apply to but they see as a good fit.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Greatest people, greatest opportunity, greatest people.

The people at Southwest Airlines really want to get to know you as a new member of their family. They will also bend over backwards to help you develop your future career.

Downers

I cannot think of a single thing I didn't love about this internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

There's a reason all the Southwest Airlines employees love coming to work and it's because this is an incredible company to work for. The culture is unrivaled!

Advice to Management

As a Flight Operations intern, I would've like to ride the jump seat on a real trip. I know for a fact that United Airlines allows their interns one jump seat experience. I asked for this privilege during my internship and was turned down. :/

Sample Interview Questions

Why do you want to work for Southwest Airlines? What college course have you taken that has prepared you for this specific internship? Do you know what SMS is? What is your biggest weakness?
