I’m will be 48 on Tuesday. I’ve always wanted to be a flight Attendant for SW. I’ve done my job & have raised my two kids.  I would love to travel and meet new people & what better way to live a dream!! I’m curious as to how many people my at age (48) apply and either are considered or hired as flight attendants?

I am so excited! I have attempted to sign on and apply for the Flight Attendant position several times throughout the years with absolutely no luck. The server would crash due to the overwhelming response and I could never get through. This time I actually submitted my application and resume! Can you tell me what happens now? How long before an applicant receives a response from the Hiring Committee?

Good for you for asking this question. I’m sure so many women quietly wonder about the age factor. I’m 53 and I have just applied. I believe it’s more about our attitude and outlook on life.  

 

Has our “seasoned” life left us feeling amazing or are we ready to throw in the towel? Are we still curious and challenging ourselves although our current situation may not require it?

 

Good luck. Believe in yourself... you’ve got this!

Good morning, I agree with most of the comments on the community!! I to have been applying for numerous positions at Southwest and got a call back but never got an opportunity to show myself approve!! But there was never a position opening for flight attendant. I have been waiting on this moment in my life for a long time. I just thank God for the opportunity to even apply!!! Ladies just keep speaking life into yourself and keep the faith and the opportunity will manifest in your life as well as mine!!!! Have a great morning, hope to meet you all one day!!!!
