Do your reserach about SW. A lot of the time they will ask what you know about SW, and why you want to work for them. Of course, you'll want to prep for your interview like a standard interview. They will ask scenario based interview questions, so you should have some situations already thought out. I prefer to use the STARS method for scenario questions. It keeps me from rambling and keeps my mind on track. Also, make sure you are ready for the age-old question, 'tell me about yourself'. I always use Google to find good examples to model my answer after, as my career progresses, that answer is constantly evolving. Be yourself and keep your eyes on the prize! Good luck. 😀

Hello everyone. Here’s my current timeline for Operations Agent:

 

5/9 - applied for job

5/12 - received email to schedule VI

5/17 - virtual interview completed

5/19 -  VI passed/ CJO offered                              5/23 - signed background consent form

5/25 - background check done

5/31 - background complete (they said I don’t have to do my fingerprinting again since it’s already on file from a previous position I was in the hiring process for)

6/1 - received an email that they are now determining when my start date will be

 

This is what I have so far…from reading other people’s posts about start dates, I might not be hearing back about my possible start date until much later. I will continue to check my emails though and hopefully I will hear something soon!

I don’t have a lot of dates to report yet, but can contribute something towards the end of this post.

 

5/10-Applied for Ramp at IND

5/10-Received email to submit questionairre

5/12-Received invite for virtual interview

5/17-Interview on Microsoft Teams (11am)

5/17-Received call offering me position (4pm)

5/17-Submitted background check info

5/17-Uploaded Vaccination Card

5/19-Received email to update DL info (I put the date I got it instead of the expiration date on accident)

That’s all I’ve done so far, but I was told that assuming everything comes back, I will most likely start in mid to late June.

 

For those of you having trouble uploading your vaccination card, the system doesn’t accept certain file types. It doesn’t accept jpegs and something else. Basically, you can just take a picture of it and try to upload it because it doesn’t work. If you have an iPhone, go to the notes app, start a new note, click on the camera icon that should be along the bottom of the screen, and choose “Scan Document.” When you scan it, it will become a pdf file and you can then upload it on your profile for Southwest. I think Android phones have a similar option, but I don’t have an android so I can’t say how to get there on an android.
