    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX (US)).

    Interview

    A week after applying you get a phone call from a recruiter asking you several questions they were given with specific answers referring to general aircraft maintenance

    You then receive a call from the manager of the station you are applying to for more questions and a sense of your personality.

    You then go in for a face to face interview with several managers and an HR representative. The environment is very relaxed and they want to know how well you can interact and fit in with the group.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines.

    Interview

    Interview process begins with practical skills and knowledge tests. After passing, the interview is conducted by other aircraft mechanics. The interview is very friendly with an emphasis on getting to know you and your attitude (Southwest calls it "Warrior Spirit"). They want candidates that will bring their experience as well as a willingness to continue to learn and grow. I spoke with one of the interviewers after I was hired to ask a little more about what exactly they were looking for. They wanted an easy going person who was confident in their skills but without any cockiness.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX (US)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    This was a very organized, structured interview process. Was called by a senior internal recruiter. We hit it off and the questions were very broad. Then the next phone interview was with the lead off-site consulting manager, which was more technical specific. I then was asked to come in for a face to face interview with a structured 3-4 hour panel of management.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (Dallas, TX (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly easy: resume screening, phone interview, in-person interview (Dallas HQ). Each interview was about 30 minutes, with the recruiter being a part of both interviews. Simple questions were asked, nothing too complex, but it depends on your recruiter.
