My name is Deion Higginbotham and i am a former Ramp employee from the Oakland station. I left the company back in july 2021 due to some health issues and traveling from Las Vegas to California was getting really tough. But since I’ve been gone those health issues are behind me and i would really like to come back and work for Southwest Airlines. I see you guys are in need of some help across the careers page and I was wondering if i could apply or if I was rehire eligible. Can someone help me understand what or who i need to talk to, to be able to come back? It would be really cool to continue with the last job i ever want to work for. I was told i had to wait a year to reapply is that also true?

Since this is a customer forum, there's probably no one here that can answer your questions.


Your best bet is to head to the  SW careers website to start the process.

Hi there, Deion. We're so glad to hear that you're looking to return to our Southwest Family! 

As you review available opportunities on, you'll be able to see each role's requirements, including if you can reapply within the same year as having previously applied. All of the details you need should be there, in the posting! 

We appreciate your interest, and we're wishing you the best of luck!
