Southwest is known for its Company Culture. It’s often imitated, and never duplicated. Did you know that we also have a Culture Services Department that is charged with championing a Culture through which every Employee knows they matter? As Interns on that Team, Emily and I focus specifically on large-scale Employee appreciation events, including our recent Culture Blitz in Houston.

On the first day of Intern Orientation, I sat next to a fellow Intern with my same last name. After discovering our shared surname, I joked with him that while I already have a twin sister, he could be our triplet. “Actually,” he responded, “I am a triplet.”

 

With it being National Twin Day today, it seems fitting to acknowledge this unique trend among our Intern class. Below is a quick look at some of the summer 2018 Interns with their multiples. While our siblings aren’t interning with us, all of the Interns have become a Family.

People associate a number of emotions with travel; however, adrenaline isn’t typically one of those emotions—unless you’re a Southwest Airlines Intern! On Friday mornings, before I leave for work, I always pack a backpack with the essentials for travel: a swimsuit, my passport, hiking shoes, and a rain jacket. One thing I don’t have? A boarding pass or a destination! This summer, I’ve been fortunate to spend the majority of my weekends traveling with my fellow Interns. As July is Parks and Recreation Month, we’ve been especially focused on exploring as much of America’s open space and natural wonder as possible.

Our fourth annual Southwest Summer Camp is underway, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome over 160 campers (who are dependents of Southwest Employees) to our Headquarters this week! Additionally, we are hosting a few students from GenHERation and a few students whose nationally-recognized science experiment was sent to space. Most of these campers aren’t of legal voting age yet, but they just might be future Southwest Employees. In fact, that’s kind of the point.

Intern Kevin Satterfield works in Network Planning & Performance and helps his Team on a variety of projects. “This internship has been very rewarding. I have a profound hearing loss, which makes hearing others and, by extension, participating difficult. However, Southwest accommodated me at all stages of the interview process, provided interpreters, and continues to ensure I have all the resources to fully contribute to this wonderful Company.”

Our Employees are known for their Company pride. When Southwest Airlines receives recognition, it’s truly a reflection of our incredible folks, taking great care of our Customers. So it’s with pride in our amazing Employees that I share that Southwest Airlines was recently recognized by The Wall Street Journal on their inaugural list of Management Top 250.

A few months ago, Nic Jepsen, a high school student, reached out to our CEO, Gary Kelly, to ask for roundtrip airfare to see his team’s nationally-recognized science experiment rocketed into space. At Southwest, we love to inspire students to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers, and our Purpose is connecting Customers to what’s important in their lives. So, we weren’t surprised to learn Gary said yes.
