I have been watching their site for years and have never seen them hire any new f/a yet (?) They must really love their jobs and nobody ever quits

Well, that's probably pretty true but honestly from what I've been told they open it up to internal applicants first. So that being said, if they don't find as many as they need through that process, they open it up to outside applicants.

When I flew for them it was for 4 weeks because you only have one plane to learn, it may have changed.

I don't know yet! :) I've been in training and more training. It's 3.5 weeks of class followed by an OE. Followed by 3 more class days on a different a/c, then another OE. The commute is gonna be hard. I got MCI, but the flights in and out are limited. 2 legs anyway I turn. Hopefully I'll be off reserve soon. It's hard going from big to small.

Here is the information that has been shared with current Southwest & AirTran Employees:

- The hiring need has been determined by several factors, but the biggest one is to ensure sufficient staffing for spring and summer 2014.
- The job posting will be made available to current Employees "within the next couple of weeks".
- More than one class is planned and the first class is planned to begin in January 2014.

No official communication has been issued regarding an external (public) job posting for the Flight Attendant position.

I went through the f2f with Delta. Is Airtran just as hard as Delta? Anyone know of a smaller airline to try first? Thanks!

I used to work as a flight attendant for American Eagle before I switched to a more local company <a href="www.telsgroup.com/services/">cargo transportation</a>. The communication will not be too complicated for you if you take FA courses first.

Hi SWA in Texas,
Can you tell me what base is most junior for southwest? Is it possible to get either Phoenix or Chicago out of training? If not how long would it take for both bases? Thanks

I just checked their website and they do not have the FA position open. I heard they might be opening the position to external candidates sometime next year.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think airlines have a weight requirement anymore, I think it was considered discriminate.

Thanks SWA 1977...I had heard that...but thought surely airlines just did not hire those who were extreme overweight. My brother inlaw had his interview on Oct. 31 for a pilot for SWA...said it would be 2 weeks before he heard back. Has over 21 years of being a pilot in the Air Force. I'm hoping when they do open up I can get my name in there!! GOOD LUCK to all who are applying!!

Just a heads up to thoughs external applicants looking to apply with WN (southwest) when they opened the position for externals in 2011 the website was flooded with applicant and it crashed within hrs. Just because the page went blank don't give up keep clicking refresh until it loads. To a lot of FAs and pilots working for Southwest is the Holy Grail and as so they don't keep their posting open for very long (a few hrs at best depending on how fast the server crashes). It's all about know the date and time they're going to open it.

Early 2014. No specific date. If you hear anything different, it's all speculation because no official announcement has been made to current Employees regarding an external posting date.

Best advice coming from someone who successfully went through the Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant interview process is to buy and read these two books in preparation for the interview: "Nuts!: Southwest Airlines' Crazy Recipe for Business and Personal Success" by Kevin and Jackie Freiberg and "The Essential Guide To Becoming A Flight Attendant" by Kiki Ward.

As long as you can fit into the jumpseat without an extension. That's the only requirement.
