How to become a SWA flight attendant?

Adventurer C

Hello, My name is Robin and I am interested in becoming a flight attendant with SWA.  I have been in customer service for over 31 years with the same company and am looking for a  career  change.  I am anxious to begin this new journey!  If someone could please let me know how I begin the process, I would greatly appreciate it.

I have an added question:

When going through the application, where do I go to apply for flight attendant? Customer relations? And how soon will I know when there is a opening?
