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.

There are No Limits to the possibilities at Southwest Airlines


Uppers

I think the most valuable part of the internship was being able to connect with so many different sides of a business. I got to meet interns and professionals alike from finance, human resources, revenue, and even some aviation junkies. It was a great way to network across multiple career paths, rather than only be surrounded by interns exactly like myself.


Downers

I think the only downside (and this is a stretch, because I really can't think of anything I didn't enjoy) would be that I know some of the interns struggled with an imbalance in workload. Some were less busy than others and I think it would have been better to try and keep everyone around the same level responsibility-wise.


Advice to Potential Interns

There's nothing smart about passing up an opportunity to work for one of the most heralded and respected companies in America. Great place to start your career, you can only go up from here!


Advice to Management

Southwest treats their employees better than anyone in the business and they know it. No advice here.

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.
