Great Leadership, Great People, Great Company

Current Employee - Supervisor  in  Dallas, TX (US)
Current Employee - Supervisor in Dallas, TX (US)

Pros

The leadership, the culture and the people. Every employee is made to feel valued and appreciated on a daily basis. Not only by your managers and supervisors but by the leaders of the company. My 27 year old daughter says I go to daycare and not work everyday.

Cons

Vacation is a bit lame. Most companies have moved from vacation and sick benefits to PTO. It's difficult to hire for a senior position and offer only 2 weeks vacation. (3 weeks after 5 years)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move from Vacation and Sick to PTO. In my opinion this company is doing everything else right!

    Current Employee - Reservation Sales Agent in Oklahoma City, OK (US)

    Pros

    Industry leading benefits, a healthy relationship between management and unions, a profitsharing plan backed by three decades of unbroken profit, and a positive, supportive environment! I don't think I've ever seen such a hearty welcome to new employees, nor have I seen so many people thinking like owners of the company, taking responsibility and ownership of how we serve our Customers and maintain our Culture, which is one of the keys to our success. With few exceptions, most of our people were "Living the Southwest Way" before they even knew what it was.

    Cons

    Baggage Service. I'd really like to see our numbers improve in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. LUV you from the bottom up!

    Current Employee - Flight Attendant in Dallas, TX (US)

    Pros

    Great company. They listen and are willing to work with the employees. Its a company that actually cares. They send you cards if your ill, if a family member dies, send you flowers. They have a heart that most companies dont have.

    Cons

    Some management officials can have a little more work on being better managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advice senior management to be more proactive on some issues.
