Assessment Day Virgin Australia Domestic Cabin Crew
Has anyone been to the Virgin Australia Domestic Cabin crew assesment day recently like in the passed week or so I know they have been holding them in Sydney and I was just wondering if there was any hints or tips of what happends in them!
Thank you so much, any tips or anything at all from anyone would be greatly appreciated!!
I went to the assessment day last week. It starts off as an information session on the company and the role. Then there was 1 on 1 interviews that lasted for a about 10-15 minutes. Was very relaxed. They just wanted to gauge your motivation for applying for the role.
Hey there, I posted above what my experience was last week. It seems the same recruiters travel the country. From my experience as long as you smile, have a clear idea why you want to work for virgin, what the actual role of a crew member is you will be fine. They want to hear that your excited to work for them.
I'm attending an assessment day in Perth on Wednesday - I'm getting a little nervous as last time was not my finest interview!! Can anybody give me a more detailed run down of the day? Last time we had to read an announcement in front of everybody then had a brief individual problem to solve then they cut so never got an interview as such. Is it the same format? Or as previous post its just the company profile then interview?? What are virgin looking for those who are outgoing or the quiter smilie types?
hey everyone... Ive applied for Virgin this morning I currently work on the A380 and been short haul prior for just over 2 years does this give an advantage? I just really want to work for Virgin Australia! When should i hear? What is the flying like out of perth? and what is deal with base transfers and pay structure?
From what I know it is different and scenario based.
Sounds like you have some great experience. I am sure it will give you an advantage in the earlier stages of the selection process.
The flying out of Perth is Phuket, Bali, Cocos Keeling Islands, Christmas Island and all over Australia domestic. Base transfers to Melbourne or Sydney would be possible after a year (Brisbane very little chance). Pay is going through EBA soon but you can find the EBA that is currently in action online through Fair Work Australia.
I went to Virgin Australia AD on thursday at Perth. Has anyone heard back from them at all? I have gotten upto the online assessment stage and waiting to get my results. Is anyone on this stage at all?
Does anyone know how long it takes for you to get your online assessment results?
Marymary Can you give me an idea what to expect as I'm attending an AD next Wednesday in Perth. I'm lucky as I withdrew from the other as I took another job but had second thoughts and now I get a random e-mail to attend another AD. Just would like to prepare myself so any information would be very helpful.
Shelbs, it starts off with them discussing about the company. Then they have a one on one interview, then they decide who makes it through. At my AD, only less than half made it through. After the unsuccessful people leave, they gave us group activities and that was it for the day. If you're successful, you receive an email in a week or two, with a link to the online assessment. If you pass that online assessment you move on to reference checks (: which is where I am at right now (:
Good luck on your assessment day!
nbailey073 what base are you going for ? How long ago did you have an AD?
Hi! Just wondering if anyone attended Any of the sydney AD's at the end of July?? They said we would hear within 3-7 days and it's now been over 2 weeks.. Do we hear either way does anyone know? When I log in to the website my progress still just says "assessment day invite accepted" Thanks!
Can anyone please tell me, if you are on a waitlist for a position, what does it say on you application on the careers website? I was told my application had been waitlisted because I had a holiday to attend but on the 'current status' it says 'ineligible'. Can anyone tell me what this means? Is anyone else on a waitlist here and if so, what does your application status say? Thank you.
