Re-hire seniority & eligibility

Explorer C

Hi there,


Last year around this exact time I left SWA because of a traumatic family loss. SWA has my heart and I would like to dig deeper into coming back. I am now looking for information on re-hire. Does our seniority and pay reset if we are re-hired back to inflight?


Thank you.

@Nairobi I would assume that you start over. I wouldn’t think they would hold any of your previous benefits since you left the company.
