Trying to return to Southwest

I’m a former ramp agent and attended a Southwest job fair last week. I applied for Ops agent.  While I was waiting to be interviewed, I noticed that a few people that came after me were called to be interviewed. I went up and talked to someone, I told her  I had already applied for Ops online and wanted to find out why I wasn’t called yet.  She said oh yeah I did come across your name but it was in red and didn’t tell me why.  Does anyone know why?

The employer is not obligated to tell you why you were not selected for employment.  The only requirement is that you not discriminate on any one or more of the EEOC items.

 

I would suggest calling Southwest and ask the meaning for someone's name in red on the application list.  As an alternative, write a letter and ask the reason that you were not selected.

 

Keep in mind that it is not Southwest that does the hiring, it is people.  Who knows what goes through the mind of an HR person as they do their job.
