If you have applied for internatinal position with SYD base you will only be doing LAX and AUH. It is basically the old V Australia. All other destinations are either done by domestic crew or pacific blue crew...
Phuket is usually perth base Bali is usually pac blue Samoa is Poly blue Fiji is pac blue Cooks is pac blue NZ is pac blue
Saying that they may pax crew from other bases to operate but it will be the old Virgin Blue crew... not V australia. Sorry is that is not the news you were looking for...
Does anyone have any contact details for Virgin Recruitment as this "We will be in touch Mid Next Week About your medical" which was 3 weeks ago is frustrating me. PM Me please if you have any details. Thanks
Hi SydneySider, I didn't end up going to the assesment-pulled out the day before. Was offered another interview in the afternoon that I couldn't pass up! But I did also find out that you only do flights to LA and AUH and I wasn't interested in doing LH if it was to the same 2 destinations repeatedly. How did you go in the assessment?
marly, ive read some of your previous post and definitely feel for you. im glad that you've decided to do something for yourself =)
i know what you mean about waiting for a mail, holding your breathe when one comes though and getting excited only to find that it was junk mail.
the same thing happened to me when i went to my first ever AD for jetstar, i was so excited and loved everything that was told to me at AD, to get through to the panel interview and then being told they will contact us via email/phone had me constantly checking my email every 15 mins.. i could say that it became an obsession lol. so imagine how i felt when an email did come through and they told me i was unsuccessful. i was torn and i cried a little cos i wanted it so bad =/
so when i went to the Qantas AD, my hopes were a little lower.. i knew not to get my hopes up and after the panel interview i hardly ever checked my emails. then to my surprise, an email came through and told me i'd moved on to the security and medicals stage =)
just keep trying and im sure one day you will get in... it may be when you least expect it! i remember reading on here that this one guy tried and applied atleast 15 times before he got it! good luck!!!!
Marly I still haven't heard a THING from our first application 3 months ago! You can just imagine how I'm feeling then. One week before chistmas I FINALLY get an email saying I'll know the outcome by the end of that week.... and um yeah... I didn't. Atleast you never got ignored both times and knew where you stand. It's very frustrating I hate it haha
Mangowaffles, your story is a lot like mine but I had experience of feeling devo'd with qantaslink - I did the same & the e-mail ripped my heart out! Glad to hear you got up & tried again with another airline & you were successful - gives me a little hope ! To be totally honest I had given up but my heart just won't let me give up so I'll keep applying to Virgin until I succeed! Marly, were in the same situation this is my 4th application & I have yet to be invited to an AD! & were the same age - it would be amazing if we both got invited to the AD & even got the job and trained together - positive thinking but I like mangowaffles am a bit more relaxed & guarded taking a more cautious path we would both be perfect for the job hehe
I am new to the airline industry. Only been to 2 ADs. I knew from day one not to get my hopes up. I don't even worry about the wait. If it comes it comes. No use stressing cause on the end if you don't get it, it's like a double whammy stress ball. But see what happens. Given the nature of all this you can never know what they want or how you go on the day. You could say some little thing wrong and it's all done.
Just gotta be prepared to wait I guess and feel lucky if it's quick
I hope your applications are moving along better than mine. I've still had no contact back from Virgin in regards to refs checks and possible GS. Its now been 3 months since my AD. I really think I may have been lost in the system as I know there was a GS started 2nd feb for Perth and I never heard anything.
I have now reapplied on the new system just in case my details have been lost on the old one. I put a note on the top saying I hAd already progressed to refs checks back in Nov but couldn't start when they wanted me to due to my notice period.
Now I'll just wait and see if I get any contact next week either to have to re-attend AD or to let me know I'm still in ststem anyway.
I will keep on trying and we all have to stay positive!
I'd somehow chase it up Emma-loo. If you can. I do know that they do let you know either way when they go through the progress, although sometimes maybe not? But if you were unsuccessful they would have told you by now especially after months. So it's really strange.
I do know they have had many applicants over the last few months for Domestic and theyve been holding AD's lately as well. I have also heard of people still waiting from November last year, so I guess there are a lot out there. It is annoying playing the waiting game! I'm in there too, and wont get my hopes up hearing back any time soon. Even though they told us 2 weeks and when the GS will be, as that could all fall through. So see what happens, anything quicker is a bonus I guess!
I have emailed them 3 times and have called them a few times too, I left a voicemail last time on the recruitment guys answer machine too and still no reply. I never seem to be able to speak to an actual person in recruitment to confirm anything. Would just like to know if I'm still on the list.
Maybe I will try and ring again Monday, just dont want to be a pest either
