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.

@Redruss91 did you have to do fingerprints? I am also starting soon for a corporate position. I did my drug test and iform for employment and education verification las week, but I haven’t seen anything about fingerprints. Can’t wait to get started, and hope to meet you when we start at HDQ in Dallas!

Re: Please post hiring timelines! 🙏

Adventurer C

@brittg72409 I have not received anything about fingerprints yet. I just want the process to move a bit quicker. I want to know when I need to have everything situated in Dallas, and its hard to get an apartment when you don't know for sure when you are moving in! haha. Hope to meet you as well, as we start this exciting new journey at HDQ!

Re: Please post hiring timelines! 🙏

Adventurer B

@Redruss91 i understand. I’m relocating to Dallas as well, so it’s rough not knowing when I’m going to need to be there, but I’ve been using the time to get everything lined up and ready to “pull the trigger” once I get a start date.
