Fun, crazy and learning ride!


Uppers

The program in general is great. I enjoyed the planned social events to get to know the other interns. The planned volunteering and the events in which we were able to see what the other interns had accomplished. I also loved the travel benefits.


Downers

The size and complexity of the organization is a lot to take in at first. It takes truly a few months, if not longer, to understand Southwest, the industry and where Southwest fits into the industry.


Advice to Potential Interns

Learn as much as you can, it is truly very interesting. Also travel as much as possible to take full advantage of the flights. This experience is truly different than any other internship you could have.

Southwest internship develops culture, kindness, and experience in intern. Jobs await.


Uppers

Inclusion! Southwest is the best at inclusion, and working on real projects. I was able to work on real projects I would be doing if I was in the enty level position. This made it the best experience I have had at any company!


Downers

How much I am going to miss the people, and the culture of Southwest. I may never find a place who loves make work as a fun place as does Southwest!


Advice to Potential Interns

This place puts you in the job, and lets you do the work you would if you had a full time position here. This is my second internship at Southwest, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. This place treats its people as they are real and has a much kinder and thoughful culture than any organization you will find. That culture comes from the top to the bottom.


Advice to Management

Thanks for such an amazing internship! Please, Please PLEASE, make a place where an auto email gets sent out from Southwest.com that emails a person if a job opens up in a department they are interested in. I would love to make it back here someday.

Southwest Gives the Flight of a Lifetime: Amazing Culture, Great Experience and Free Travel


Uppers

I felt like I was able to make an impact on my entire Department with every project that I worked on. Of course, one of the best perks was the ability to travel domestically for free.


Downers

I had a lot of free time. My Leader definitely kept me as busy as possible, but with the reorganization of some Departments, the interns got less work. It was definitely the timing of the internship and reorganization of that caused the lack of responsibilities.


Advice to Potential Interns

The environment here is amazing. I have never seen another Company care this much for their Employees, let alone their interns. I was constantly in awe of how accommodating each Employee is. They really love the internship program and Employees see how important it is to the Company. They care about you long after you are gone as well.


Advice to Management

The environment here is amazing! The compensation compared to hours worked and free flights is definitely fair. As far as Employee retention and promotion policies, they try their best to promote internally and hire people into entry-level positions. The diversity here is amazing and Southwest definitely has a universally accepting environment.

It seemed a little short, but they do offer the fall and spring internship which is longer.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself and show your fun-luving attitude, servants hear, and warriors spirit. If you can show those things and be yourself then you will be fine.
