Application Denied ?

I put un an application that was immediately denied, seemingly automatically. The email I got said it was because I didn’t meet the base requirements, but I reread the job description and application and I seem to meet them all??? Can anyone help?!

This just happened to me as well. I submitted my application and received confirmation but it automatically went under "No Longer Under Consideration". I met the job requirements and answered all the qualification questions.

Happy Monday, @mavsfans2002!

 

Thanks so much for reaching out - we'd be glad to provide some additional insight here. 

Upon reviewing your answers to the application questionnaire, when asked "Are you authorized to work in the U.S. or will you have authorization to work in the U.S. by date of hire?" you indicated "no". Since this authorization is a requirement of the role, this answer deemed your application ineligible. We're so sorry for any confusion there. 

 

If this was by mistake, we'd love to invite you to apply to this position or other positions posted on our careers site! We post new opportunities daily, and we hope to get to know you better as you explore a career at Southwest Airlines! 💙❤️💛

Thank you so much @adrienneb for the response to my post. This was certainly an oversight as I am qualified to work in the U.S. 

 

I did go back to the application as it is still open and attempted to reapply again. However, when I submit my application, it said, "Thank you, You have already applied for..." the role name. 

 

There isn't a way for me to withdraw my application since it shows under my Inactive jobs. Does this mean I'm no longer eligible to be considered for the role or is there a way to remove this from my inactive jobs or reset my app so I can update my qualification questions accordingly?

Hey again, @mavsfans2002 !

Unfortunately, once an application is submitted, we’re unable to make changes to your questionnaire answers or remove that application from your profile. You could apply with a different email address or continue to check careers.southwestair.com for the next posting and/or sign up for a job alert on any job description page!

Hey there, @msydney434

 

So sorry for any confusion or disappointment surrounding your recent application. Upon review, when asked the question "If selected for the job you will be required to attend a full-time, paid training course in Dallas, TX for 11 days, with overnight stays required. Food, lodging and transportation during training are paid for by Southwest Airlines. Are you interested in a job with these requirements?" you indicated "no".

 

This answer disqualified your application from consideration, as training in Dallas, TX is a requirement for the position. If your answer was a mistake, we'd love to invite you to reapply when the position opens back up for applications! We are so appreciative of your interest in joining the Southwest Family!
