Default New hire details and show times?

Getting a bit nervous and wondering if a new hire can shed some light and calm my nerves:

When do the details regarding showtime, when and where arrive?

Iím 3 weeks from my class date, already given my resignation notice to my current employer, packed up and moved out of one house to prepare for the pay cut....when should I expect to hear something?

I didnít want to bug the people department so thought Iíd ask here first....

Thanks,

Unless things have changed in the last couple months, the first event is a welcome dinner Monday night then class begins Tuesday morning, sorta. Spouses are included on Tuesday.

I start next week and just got the welcome emails and links to fill out paperwork etc last week. I also bumped up a class so I might have compressed just a little bit.

Yeah give or take a few days I think. I received my welcome email on Friday and my on-boarding email showed up Sunday. I was bumped up a class in Thursday.

Donít be shy about contacting them. You are hired now and they are happy to give you information. I told the CP that I could start on Tuesday...it was Wednesday when he called. He laughed and said he loved my enthusiasm and would let scheduling know. Low and behold a class spot opened up the Tuesday after that. So I had less than two weeks notice. The next week I emailed the lady and she gave me all the information.

This.

You have a life too, donít be annoying, but if youíre stressed about this, give em a call or email them.

Theyíre not the soup nazi.

Maybe if you were hired by that outfit in Atlanta things would be different, but hey, this is Southwest. We love you already!
