Rehire eligible

New Arrival



I was previously employeed with Southwest as a FA, and was let go. Do I have a chance of getting rehired again? I went through some really heavy personnel stuff and I lost focus and got let go before my probation was up. I really want to get back in more than anything. Can someone please tell me if it’s possible? 


Re: Rehire eligible


I'm sorry to hear you've been having a tough time, I hope things are going better for you now! Any time someone re-applies after leaving, they go through a re-hire review where we connect with your past leadership to discuss why you left, so it's certainly possible that you could come back! You can chat with a recruiter about that during an interview should you apply. Good luck!

I am going through the process currently. It has been exciting and stressful.  I recently had my Panel Interview and did well.  Now I am waiting on the “re-hire review panel”.  I was told they touch base with your previous supervisors and review your reason for leaving.  The panel also takes the comments of your recruiters into consideration when making their decision.  I will let you know what my outcome is when I know. I can understand why you would want to go back to Southwest.  They have that very special culture and this company is truly like no other in the best way.
