I applied online. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines

Interview

Very straightfoward and linear process. I applied online and about a week later I was asked for a phone interview, then shortly after I was asked for a virtual interview. I was always in the loop of what was going on, I never felt alone and I could reach out if I had questions.

Interview Questions
  • Why Southwest? Why this position? Why did you pick your major? Where do you see yourself in five years?

I interviewed at Southwest Airlines

Interview

The interview process first started with a call from HR, then it went to a panel board with the software engineer team. Everything was a quick turnover, which is good. Probably less than a week for them to reply to you with a response

I applied online. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX) in Apr 2021

Interview

There will be a HR Screening Phone call where they want to know who you are, and will ask minor Javascript questions such as difference between "==" and "===". "What is the difference between Null and Undefined" if you pass that they then will give you resumes to hiring managers, for a team interview. I had 2 team interviews, each consisting of 2 parts, 1 behavioral and 1 technical. Behavioral is classic star. For me because I didn't know Java, they had a React technical assessment. They want to see how you think, and they keep emphasizing it wasn't to complete it but problem solving skills. They would give you data, and you would have to display it on this coderpad equivalent thing. Unfortunately because I didn't know Java, and the React I knew was the more updated version (Functional vs Class components). I wasn't a match for the team. The recruiter really helped and she said she was going to find more teams, but I don't think since my Stack is similar they will find it, unfortunately. But great people, I loved talking to them.

I heard back a week after applying online for a phone screen, and currently waiting to hear back for second round interview. The phone screen was very laid back and it's standard behavioral interview questions.
