Crew Scheduling

I was turned down for crew Scheduling today. I have 21 years experience in the USAF and 5.5 years experience as a crew scheduler. Your web site states you take care of veterans. Not to mention I do have experience at that position. Why didn’t you consider me for that position?

This is a customer to customer forum so you won't get a reply from Southwest here.  Have you ever thought that perhaps there are other people with your same qualifications or even more experience with another airline who applied?

I know for a fact they hire people of the street without crew scheduler experience. Currently I have  3 degrees I received during my 21 years of military service. Was a crew scheduler with 6 years experience. Southwest claims on their employee website they take care of experienced veterans. If that was true I would have gotten at least a interview.

I would suggest a different attitude. Southwest and many other companies look for individuals that can fit best with their corporate culture. The entitled personality doesn't tend to do well. Best of luck in your job search.
