New Hire Process

When SW verifies employment as part of the background process, how many years back do they verify?  For example, if I have listed the last 30 years of employment, will every single employer get verified?

Hi, @EddieHOU!

 

Thank you for your interest in joining Southwest Airlines! We do verify all employment history provided in an application. However, we do only require five years of employment history on your application. Your résumé would be the best place to share any history beyond five years!
