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.

Experience of a Lifetime


Uppers

You understand what it takes to keep a company very successful, while building experience at a great Airline.


Downers

I would possibly have liked to seen a few days of on-the-job training to get oriented with the role of the department, and the short-term goals of the Flight Operations area.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you would like to work at a company that takes care of itself, and cares about each person, then pick SWA! The team concept is seen here everyday, and you will love to wake up and come to work everyday.

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.

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.

The most fun you never wanna leave


Uppers

Knowledge in the field Meeting a variety of people the culture of the company non-reving


Downers

I felt as if i was not used to my full ability


Advice to Potential Interns

Be yourself, and be prepared to work hard, but play way harder.


Advice to Management

Let your interns dig into a specific subject more, rather than do busy work.


Would You Recommend

Yes
