Becoming a Flight Attendant

Tourist Rank demetria_bell

Good morning!! I am wanting to become a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines. To be honest, I have never been on a plane but my brother, who is Marine veteran, tells me it is great fun. I do love to travel and have always wanted to be on a plane. I do have experience in customer service and interacting with different individuals from all over the world. I just need to know what the job requirements are and what the positions entails. I tried to find the information on the website but could not find the information I was looking for. I am very eager to learn. Please help!
