Good morning! I would like advice on the correct procedures to becoming a flight

attendant. I have searched the internet but seem to get several schools/training

agencies  that want to send me each direction. My interest is to become a flight

attendant for Southwest Airlines. Please

direct to the proper steps. Thank you!

You do NOT need prior airline experience or training! Save your money on these schools and instead focus on customer service experience, getting your passport, improving your resume, etc. Southwest isn't hiring right now, but should be in the next year! My advice: join Facebook groups for aspiring SWA flight attendants and ask your questions there. Good luck!

Is there a way to get a notification when flight attendance jobs are posted? I have always wanted to be a flight attendant with Southwest since I was a little girl, we would always fly Southwest to California from Texas and it was always at the back of my mind.  I never pursued it while my kids were growing up, but now they are grown and I think I am ready for a career change 🙂
