Why only California residents?

Don't know for sure, but I suspect that all new hires will be stationed at bases in California.

 

Ergo, California hires might make sense.

Hi @andrewebb 

 

Our Company is still recovering from impacts on the business given the pandemic; therefore, we took a careful and measured approach to hiring Flight Attendants by limiting the number of Candidates per posting and optimizing base placement geographically.
 
We understand that you may be interested in future Inflight opportunities and would encourage you to join our Talent Community so that you may be notified of upcoming opportunities. 
 
Thanks for your interest in joining Southwest Airlines!

I successfully submitted my application for the CA position on May 13th.  Are the F2F interviews in Dallas on hold due to the pandemic?

Hello my name is Sheralka and I’m super excited to know that Southwest is hiring flight attendants again! However I did miss the opportunity to apply on May 13. So will the position be open for California residents again? I did join the talent community already but I’m just wondering if I just missed my chance lol. Also, would I be able to apply to flight attendant positions in other states ?

Hi, @Sheralka 

 

That's great that you have joined our Talent Community! We certainly appreciate your interest in hoping to become a part of the Team at Southwest Airlines. We do not currently have any flight attendant positions open; however, many of our positions close quickly due to the high volume of candidates we receive. 

 

You are able to apply to any position that aligns with your skills and interest and where you meet the qualifications listed on the job description. For instance, the last Flight Attendant posting, one of the qualifications was that you had to be a resident of California. Keep an eye on emails from our Talent Community and I'd also encourage you to regularly check the Careers site. 

 

Best of luck on your endeavors!
