Rob shows his
Culture, camaraderie, and combined efforts are just
a few things that come to mind when First Officer Rob
Vos thinks about Southwest Airlines. Rob joined the
Southwest Family eight years ago, and he has more than
30 years of flying experience.
On his first day at Southwest, Rob noticed that there
was something different about the Company. “The Culture is definitely what sets Southwest apart,” Rob says.
He gives a lot of thanks to his management for leading
by example, and he firmly believes in the pay-it-forward
philosophy, which he puts into action by organizing an
annual lunch for his Fellow Employees at the Norfolk
Station as a way of thanking them for all their hard work
and service. Since he started with the Company, Rob
has commuted weekly from his hometown of Norfolk
to Baltimore/Washington and has fostered great friendships with the Norfolk Station Employees.
Just as Rob LUVs his job as a First Officer, he also
LUVs what the job does for him. Southwest affords Rob
opportunities to do things he enjoys outside of work,
like fishing, golfing, and spending time with his wife
of 30 years and their two daughters. He is grateful for
his travel privileges, which allow his daughter Abby
to fly back and forth from graduate school, and he also
appreciates the “Freedom to think outside the box” that
his supportive management gives their Team. “We all
take care of each other with the ultimate goal of taking
care of our Customers,” Rob says.
“Rob is one of the best folks we have,” Baltimore/
Washington Chief Pilot Bert Seither says. It comes
as no surprise to us, Rob, that you were named Star of
the Month. We are so lucky to have you on our Team.
Your nonstop commitment to Southwest has not gone
unnoticed, and we couldn’t be prouder of you!
Blue Man Group
is proud to give
Rob Vos two
tickets to a Blue
show as a token
of appreciation for his work and
dedication. Congratulations, Rob!
