"From the moment I stepped foot on the campus for my first interview, I knew Southwest was different than all the rest. It is extremely rewarding to be able to respond to the reoccurring question about how I like working for Southwest with, 'I love it! It is the best Company I have ever worked for.' You don’t feel you are actually 'working;' you feel you are an important part of this great Company."
