The interview process consisted of two phone calls and one in person interview with the HR team and the department of which you're applying to. It's a 3-4 person group and you, which honestly I like better than one on one.

Interview

A phone call asking you hypothetical situations onboard an aircraft. This is actually a company not at Southwest. Then one on 3, they fly you out to the people department. More “tell me about a time” questions. If they do your finger prints you got the job, if they didn’t it’s usually a thanks but no thanks.

Interview

Applied online, heard back about a month later. Was invited to a phone interview with HR. After the phone interview, a week or 2 later, I was invited to an in person interview. The interview lasted about 20 minutes, I was surrounded by teams. At the end of the interview I was thanked and was told to expect a phone call. About a week later I received the decision. Overall the interview process was simple, questions were personality based on the phone and experience based for the in person part.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time where you had a disagreement with your coworkers.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Southwest Airlines (United States)

Interview

Contractor role, 1st round with hiring manager went really well. 2nd with 6 PM/POs, one of them joined when the interview is about to end. 2nd round is super weird, seems like some people don't want to do this or they were forced to interview me, and the interaction was poor, I don't know what they think about my answer, is not an open dialog. From the questions they asked, I feel like the team may have their own opinion on UX, and seems like one of the PM/PO is doing the UX work, and about 3-5 months without a UX person in the team, which is fine, some companies do things this way, but it may lead to some thinking about if I'm a PM/PO can handle/decide UX work, why we need a UXer here to make UX decisions, we just need an executer? And a lot of questions is how I handle hard things, honestly to me, most of the things are not hard, you tackle problems use HCD, break into chunks. It gives me the impression they may want someone that is not as confident and comfortable as me handling jobs, but a more obedient soldier.

Interview Questions
  • How do you handle conflicts? I handle conflicts all the time, but if an interviewer asks you, usually means the team always has conflicts and it didn't handle well(otherwise it won't have conflicts...)
  • What's the hardest workshop you've attended?
