A thrilling opportunity!

Ramp Agent (Current Employee)
Dulles, VA (US)

I have been working at Southwest Airlines

ProsThe best reason bar none to work for this company is the people! One LUV is not just a feeling, everyone seems to embrace it. It's just one gigantic family. While the starting pay may not be the greatest, there is ample room to grow and the pay steps further along up the line are a nice incentive to put in the time.

ConsAs stated above, the starting rate for most entry level positions is rather low. Also, the sometimes hectic rotating schedule could be a turn off for those seeking a steady, regular hours type position. In my opinion, that is the nature of the industry, not necessarily a con against the company. YMMV

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to lead the company with your unique blend of innovation, fun-loving attitude, and thr warrior spirit that got us this far.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
