 Congrats and Welcome to the SWA Team. I was hired on for the ramp back in August. The worst part was waiting for the USPS background check to come back after I was offered the job on the ramp. Took around 6 weeks for it to come back, so hopefully that time has come down some. Be patient and if you have any questions please feel FREE to ask. Almost done with my 6 month probation, so I am excited to clear one of the last hurdles!

Any plans to make a move after probation?

Have NO plans to move. Born and raised in Chicago, lived in PHX area for 10 years before moving outside SDF now for the last 10 years. How about yourself?

Oh sorry, I meant do you plan on moving to a different department? For me, perhaps to Vegas. I will definitely begin applying to other areas as soon as probation is over.

No, I plan on just working on the ramp. I was retired for 12 years before I got back into working on the ramp again. In my early 50's and I needed to do something active and keep my brain from turning to mush. I worked on the ramp in the late 80's and early 90's for Midway and Northwest Airlines. Always loved working around planes and being outdoors. Since I have been hired on I have met some great people and lost some weight and feel so much better!
