Shuttle from hotel to SWA headquarters. First step is turning in your log books and the paper work SWA emails you when accepted for an interview. SWA has a specific order they would like the paper work in! "Stack one, stack two" is how SWA refers to the paperwork, please be detailed oriented. This time is also when you will be fingerprinted digitally, takes no time at all. During this process you'll be in the room with the candidates, just remember that the interview begins from the time you leave the hotel to the time you walk out of the building, always be courteous and social! They love seeing how you and the other candidates interact. Next your group will be greeted by someone from the interview team and will walk over to an adjacent building for the interview. You and your group will be seated in a room where you'll be called individually to begin one of three portions of the interview. These three portions are (this is the order I got, keep in mind you can get any order!) Logbook audit, HR, LOI (Line Oriented Interview) Logbook Audit: Straight forward, they will have...

  1. Nov 29, 2023 Amazing experience. Start the day in the lobby checking in and meeting other applicants. After turning in logbooks the first tour and presentation begins. About one hour long presentation with some background and current information about SWA. Once presentation is finished, the interview begins. Logbook review first: very straight forward, have the completed document with you and be prepared to talk about your flight time. SBQ was second: be prepared to get any scenario on this website. It... Continue reading this interview experience

  2. Nov 28, 2023 Straightforward process, I was in 7:30am group. Arrive to HQ, handover logbooks. Be sure it’s accurate and tabbed with source material included. Then you go to a briefing about the company lasting about 40 minutes. After was the interviews, I got HR, Logbook review, and then SBQ. Everyone is extremely welcoming and kind, they do not make you feel stressed. It becomes more of a conversational interview, just be sure to smile and show your character. After the interviews, you complete a... Continue reading this interview experience

  4. Nov 28, 2023 I was in the 07:30 group. Day started with checking in and grouping up in the waiting room. They collected our logbooks and other paperwork, and then we proceeded into other room for a 30-40 minute PowerPoint presentation. Lots of growth potential with new aircraft on order, expanding flying, and steady retirement numbers. After that, we walked back to the waiting room and they immediately started calling people back. My first section was the logbook review. Very relaxed and just a... Continue reading this interview experience

  5. Nov 27, 2023 Interview was spot on what was advertised on this site. Before the interview, they take you on a tour around the training facility, shortly after that there is a brief presentation about the company and then you head on to the interview which is split in three sections (HR, SBQ, Logbook). HR question look very alike the ones in the study guide, for the scenario I got a line of TS approaching DAL and you are 20NM SE, depending on the decisions you make the interviewer keeps the scenario alive...

  6. Nov 22, 2023 Got the same interview as the gouge, got fuel contamination as the SBQ. The interviewers couldn't have been nicer, the facility is extremely... Continue reading this interview experience

  7. Nov 16, 2023 I was a part of the 10:30 group. As previously stated in the experiences below, you start with a tour and then a brief history of SWA. After that their were three interviews, Logbook, Scenario, and HR. Mine were in that order, others were different. The tour was seriously impressive. The heritage and decor they have on the walls as you walk through is truly special. They really do have a cultured environment that anyone would want to be a part of. Scenario based question was fuel... Continue reading this interview experience

  8. Nov 16, 2023 I was in the 10:30am group. I arrived at the HQ at 10:15am and we started right at 10:30am. We were about like 20 people very big group. They asked for our logbooks and the sheet for your current flight times, make sure you have all your times up to date. Shortly after, we got on the bus and went for a tour of the training center which took about 30 minutes to an hour. Once we got done, we went back to the HQ and got a presentation about the company's history, training, bases, pay, etc. This... Continue reading this interview experience

  9. Nov 15, 2023 Best interview experience ever. Starts with an intro brief about company. Then interview split into 3 split sections. First section with Hr person and captain about HR questions. 20 min. Another section for logbook review with one person. 15-20 min (pilot typically). Last section with one captain to ask scenario based questions, 10-15 min. After all 3 sections completed over course of 2 hrs or so, you’ll go on a tour of the training facility, and it’s amazing. Then shuttle back... Continue reading this interview experience

  10. Nov 15, 2023 Everything on this website is spot on. Everyone was very friendly. The SBQ was the only thing challenging. I had the fuel contamination issue. It didn’t matter what I said, he would say something that qualified what I said making me question everything. My understanding is, there is no correct answer and they just wanna see the way that you think she’ll be confident in what you say. Otherwise, it was a great...
