I appreciate all the previous comments. I, too, have heard that Southwest Airlines is a great company to work for. I have been a public school teacher for nineteen years and feel a deep desire to try another line of work at this time in my life. Having acquired extensive customer and communication skills through my teaching experience, I thought that I might enjoy and qualify for a job within the airline industry. Any thoughts about getting in with Southwest here in Phoenix?....I'm not sure whether ticket counter or flight attendant would be the direction to go? I am in my early 40's...no children....is it very common for women of my age to start careers with Southwest Airlines? Thanks for any thoughts.
