Southwest Airlines Community

A Career with a Cause!

There’s a lot to take pride in as an Employee at Southwest: our unprecedented 41 consecutive years of profitability, making FORTUNE’s Most Admired Companies list for 20 consecutive years, or ranking #12 on’s Top 50 Best Places to Work in 2013.  Something I’m particularly proud of as Vice President of People is our hiring process.  We’re frequently asked how we can maintain our unique (and awesome) Culture with more than 45,000 Employees and 96 cities, and my answer is simple—we hire for attitude and train for skill. This doesn’t mean we don’t consider skill sets when hiring, so don’t worry about that pilot on your next flight!  What it means is we won’t ever hire just to fill a position. We’re looking for the right person to join our Southwest Family. Is that person you? This is an exciting time in our Company’s history, as we launch service domestically and abroad, and it’s providing unparalleled opportunity for exciting work and career growth for Marketing and IT professionals. If that’s your area of expertise, please click here to register for the Southwest Airlines Connections event on May 28 from 5 to 8 p.m. at our new state-of-the-art Training and Operations Support building.  Meet with Southwest Leaders and learn more about our exciting opportunities in Marketing and Technology. Marketing creates quality demand for our brand through strategic, innovative, and creative brand stewardship, product development, digital communication, media integration, marketing analysis and a customer centric point of view. We need a range of expertise, from analysts and business consultants with at least three to five years of Marketing experience, to Senior Leaders with MBAs and six to ten years in Management. Almost all positions require experience leading complex subjects/programs. Technology is crucial to delivering the wide range of capabilities Southwest must have to fulfill its future vision of becoming the “world’s most loved, most flown, and most profitable airline.”  It’s truly the place to be as Southwest invests heavily in Technology to ensure significant business value is delivered.  We need to fill additional roles for Solution Architects, Program Managers, Business Analysts, and Leaders. Southwest Employees value the opportunity to work hard, make a difference, be creative, and have FUN on the job.  They enjoy great WorkPerks such as travel privileges for you, your spouse, your parents and your dependent children; a world-famous Company Culture; a casual dress code; opportunities to give from the heart to the communities we serve; ProfitSharing; an incredible 401(k) match; and excellent health benefits, including medical, dental and vision. We’d love for you to join our Southwest Family.  Working for Southwest is more than a career … it’s a cause, and I hope it’s a cause you’ll take pride in as much as we do.
