Fun place to work!
You'll never be judged, best company to work for! On a typical day you deal with a lot of customers and a lot of face to face interaction. With all kinds of work groups, pilots, flight attendants, ramp, ATC and more..

Great and Fun Place to work
A typical day at Southwest for Operations agent is coming to see how many flights you have to work for the day. Being in DCA (Reagan National) You had about 4 flights a day. Once you get the number of flights for the day you start getting your paperwork ready for the first flight if it is ready. Hardest part of the job are delays or full flights on and off as time is of essence, especially with crew switches. I learned alot of behind the scenes stuff at Southwest, what all it takes for a successful flight. The workplace culture was amazing, Minus one Operations Supervisor and One Assistant manager it was one of the best places Ive worked. Southwest did a lot to celebrate employees and had fun days. The only thing I would say is that if you need to transfer to another airport its not always smooth.
Pros
Great People to work with, Fun working Flights and meeting people, Healthcare
Cons
Pay, Standby Flights, Transferring to another city location

great job
the pay is great, the workplace is usually good, the hardest part about this job would be the amount of hours you have to work and that leaves no room for a personal life.

Best Job Ever
If you want a test this is the job for you. Airport life is hectic but fun. Southwest knows how to have fun. Benefits include unlimited free flights for you and your parents as well as a companion or your significant other. Day at the ticket counter is greeting customers, tagging bags, printing boarding passes, and changing flights if need be. A day at the gate includes making gate announcements, tagging strollers, upgrading seat positions, and handling flight changes in case of a delay or cancellation. They also allow you to work as much as you want there is no set amount of hours you can work a hour.
Pros
Free Flights, Enviornment
Cons
None.
