Applied for Flight Attendant Position

Explorer C

Can you please let me know how long the process takes for a flight attendant position. I really have no idea, although I can imagine very many to go through. Will we be notified either way? 

Thank you for your time.

I'm with you! The waiting is killing me. Does anyone know how many people are in a class.

Good luck !

I believe I read the process could take up to a year or more.


In the meantime, I would do all you can to learn more about the industry and the SW family. It’ll keep you in a positive mood and you’ll be ready if the opportunity presents itself. 


There are some great podcasts about Southwest you could listen to. My favorite is on “How I Built This”, featuring Herb Kelleher, the founder of Southwest Airlines.

He’s quite a guy... you’ll thoroughly enjoy it.

Best of luck to you!
