How Long To Get Start Date? (DEN Ramper Here)

Adventurer C

Hey everybody! Question: So I received an e-mail 1 week ago saying "Welcome to Southwest Airlines" and that start date will be in June, that I would be contacted soon with the exact date. Those of you rampers or anyone that have recently received a start date, how long did it take you to get it? I'm getting just a little bit antsy as June creeps closer and I don't get something in my e-mail just for the fact that I want to be able to plan my move, new apartment, and getting settled into Colorado life properly 🙂

It really does vary. 


However, for your situation, I would email your recruiter and see how they can help since you are planning a move. They'll *usually* give you at least 2 weeks notice, but I don't feel like that would be enough time to plan and execute a move. Just give your recruiter a heads up, and they'll advise you on what can be done, if anything. Congrats and Good Luck!
