It will be assigned to you sometime during your first week, and they will literally schedule you for 8 hours during any part of the day, so be prepared for anything.

Training depends on you! There is no set timeline for training and you will be signed off when you are ready to safely do the job. After training, I have had a variety of schedules but directly after training, I didn’t go to overnights, but I did go to PM shift. 1700-0200.

Congrats and WELCOME to the SWA Team! Study them city codes, listen to your trainers, ask any and all questions and please make sure to keep your head on a swivel while working on the ramp! There are a couple of us on this discussion page that work the ramp for SWA and will be happy to answer any questions!
