Has anyone who interviewed with SWA in the latter part of January know if any of their contacts have been called? I understand that this would indicate that you had passed the interview.

Interviewed in January. Two of my contacts used for the letters of recommendations just called to inform me that a SWA pilot had followed up on the letters.

The SWA pilot talked for 20 minutes with my contact...5-6 minutes about SWA and United and the rest of the time was spent on "some pointed questions" according to my source.

I had not heard the statement " if the people in your letters of recommendation are contacted", it means you are hired...just thought it was one more piece of info for the review board to look at.

Decision Board?

Has anyone heard if the decision board is still sked for 20 Feb? Dumbo had told us 20 Feb, but said that it might change.

Anyone?

Try Again

Falcondrivr,

Hey don't worry about your references not getting called. When I interviewed last June they never called my letters of recommendation people at all. The only person they called was my supervisor and that was only a week before my scheduled board, later moved to the next one cause they weren't able to get through all of us. At anyrate, I don't think they call everyones references so don't look at it as a bad sign. Just fear your mailbox for a while and remember with SWA no news is good news. One of two things will happen, either they will call them eventually being that they are extremely busy and have alot of people to check on, or the other being, they had no question during the interview you were a nice guy and really don't require much checking...Just my thoughts.

Captain_Crunch et al,

If you interviewed in January, what are they saying about possible class dates?

Thanks

It's a Long Wait

HeyFalcon,

What an incredibly long process! I feel your pain.

There's no way to stop thinking about it. One day I'm up, the next I'm down.

I hang on every little tidbit of info. I wish there was a way to get it off my mind.

My problem is that I'm furloughed and have all day long to think about the process.

Good Luck. Hopefully we'll all get to meet in DAL soon.

Hey Falcondriver,

I also interviewed in Jan and have not had any of my references contacted, yet several of the other guys I interviewed with have. My background check was completed the same day I interviewed, I know this because they had a question about a 6 week break in my residency. From what I understand it is no big deal that they have not contacted your references yet, hang in there. Hopefully we will hear good news soon.

Oh yea, a friend today said the Board may be meeting on the 15th now. Best of Luck!

Calling all WA-NA-BEES

I just spoke to Jan about my PRIA records (one employer hadn't responded; it's all straightened out now).

I asked about the decision board date. Jan said it is still sked for 20 Feb.

Cross those fingers, say those prayers.

Here we go!

Interviewed 16 Jan, 3/3 contacts called 21 Jan, and 5/6 letter of recommendation writers called by 22 Jan.

I have received emails from 5/14 people in our AM/PM interview group that exchanged emails that have had their contacts called.

I haven't heard of anyone in Jan getting a letter yet (which traditionally has been bad news). Out of probably 45 people.

I have friends who interviewed the first week of Jan (1/2 got calls), and 1 who interviewed 3rd week - no calls.

Haven't heard of any drug tests for Jan interviews. Rumor is they are waiting till after DB to save money and 6 month window.

Cheers,
Shooter38
