    Interview

    I had an incredible interview experience with the recruiting staff with Southwest! I was warmly welcomed and encouraged to be myself. I learned more about the job I was applying for throughout the interview because the staff was incredibly informative. It was humbling to be able to gain more insight on the role I would possibly be taking on. Which lead me to feel a lot more prepared!
