What exactly is Part time

Explorer C

How many hours typically is the part time CSA position? I know you can always pick up shifts. Drop shifts. OT etc.  but just wanted to know the actual standard range of number of hours? Number of days ? And shift length?


Thank you!!! 🙂

The general rule is that anything under 32 hours is part-time although each state or city may have their own rules. My experience working part-time at other airlines was 4-6 hours shifts, five days a week, but I honestly don't know how it works with the CSA position at Southwest.

If you don't get an answer to your satisfaction here on the Southwest Community, perhaps you can visit your local airport and ask the Southwest CSAs in person.

Hi @Mariahslamby,


Thanks for your interest in a career at Southwest Airlines! As @rtbarron posted, the “base” schedule for Part-time Customer Service Agents is 5 days/wk, 4-6 hour shifts each day.  However, they can be assigned mandatory overtime on top of that schedule.  They must be able to work mornings, evenings, weekends, and holidays. Best of luck!
