Don't take any notice if they are recruiting or not- even if they are 'only' taking expressons of interest apply via StaffCV. And update/re-send every couple of days to show that you are still interested.

Does Virgin Blue stipulate that as Cabin Crew, you must live within a certain radius from the airport?

Sylphie: I heard from a friend who works @ VB that they its ideal if you live within 60mins (ie: if you get called in to fill in) but I don't think that's a rule...

Hardly a prob for me as I'm lapping it up here in Ascot

Sylphie: not an issue as far as I can tell. I know people live in Ballarat, Geelong, etc. Even if you live in places like Berwick or Cranbourne you might only be 50kms from the airport but in peak hour you would have to allow 2 hours.
With our available days we have to be given 2 hours notice so if you live futher out you probably just sit around at home all day waiting for the call.

Talking Vrd Day

Hello,
I have been invited to attend a VRD day in MEL mid this month and am flying over the night before and leaving in the evening on the day of the VRD. Does anyone know what time it goes till if selected all the way though? I understand that its an all day event. Id need to catch a taxi about 6 or so to get to the airport to catch my flight home.
Does anyone have any tips on preparing for the interview?

Short answer - No. Sorry!

Reserves are part of everyone's roster, but currently we have no casual cabin crew (excluding cross trained ground crew in outports).

Hi Jelly,

The VRD can last up to any time, I've met people who went home after the whole day ended at 4pm for them, and others were still there at dinner time. When I went to my VRD in MEL last year, I was just leaving at almost 6pm. It is wise to book the latest flight possible, last year I met a girl at the interviews who was cutting it so very fine to make her flight back to Adelaide, that she had to change it because she was still waiting to do her 1 hr interview.

Good Luck for your interview!

With regards to hairstyles, you mentioned the appropriate length, but are girls allowed to have fringes?

No, bad 80s fringes are definitely inappropriate. But perms are fine.

Oh.. I didn't say anything about "bad 80s" fringes, I was just meaning side fringes, or blunt flattering ones.. as long as they didn't get in your face.

I only ask because I've seen people with these hairstyles at interviews, and just wonder if it's something they make them change once hired.

Its another way of doing things and adds value to your resume when you transfer internally. However the downside is that you must be a good employee whilst you are ground crew as your record will be looked at when transferring.

VRD Melbourne

Hi Guys,

Did anyone attend the Virgin Blue Recruitment day for the Melbourne Cabin Crew positions, today at the IBIS?

I just got back home now from it.

Speaking of what's allowed...since when have virgin blue cabin crew been allowed to carry back packs on their backs through the terminal. It come complete with crew tags too ! Almost choked on my latte

This chick obviously doesn't like a suitcase on wheels ! Is that allowed ? Just didn't really suit the f/a image in my opinion.

The suitcase on wheels is a better suited look...

Usually if you see CC without bags that usually means they have people.

Crew Bags

With regards to the bags, Crew are issued a company Crew Bag, which is a shoulder bag, and they are to be used at all times when in uniform. Personal bags are not allowed.

We are also allowed to carry one additional bag with us, such as a laptop bag, food cooler bag etc.

The overnight bags must be a wheelie style suitcase, being all black or all red, so a backpack style is not allowed under the Grooming & Uniform Regulations.

Do any other DJ crew here dislike the shoulder Crew Bag? I find it is bad for my back and shoulders, and have heard they are trialling a wheelie style crew bag for us also? Can anyone confirm?
