“We’re looking for people who desire more than just a ‘job.’ More than 71 percent of Southwest Employees define their work at Southwest as ‘a calling,'” said Julie Weber, Vice President People. “The Ramp Agent position can be demanding, with nontraditional hours and exposure to a wide variety of weather conditions.
