Hi alwmi

I've had posts deleted and it is because you speak in txt...they don't like it...very frustrating at first...

What to wear

Yes wear a business suit with a jacket, for guys pants, tie, long sleeved shirt and jacket, shoes polished and no earings etc. Girls, matching suit with pants, skirt or dress, closed in shoes, matching bag and hair neatly done, with makeup and stud earings, only one or two rings on your hands, no necklaces or bangles etc and if you wear a watch make sure it's not a sports watch or anything with too much bling. Just remember you can never over dress for an interview! Good luck to everyone in Melbourne

Hi Chef de Cabine,

I'll be seeing you there on Wednesday. As for your earrings...I recommend that you keep them at home for the day. Any visible tattoos should also be covered. Its only 1 day and this is the job of your lifetime. Keep it clean. There are enough things to be nervous about on the day without having to worry about presentation. How exciting!!!

confusion

I am getting a bit concerned!

I applied to melbourne VB base in Dec and then go the thanks but we dont need you email as many who had applied for Melb did around the 17th of jan.i decided not to reapply for SYD as a second pref as i really want to live in Melbourne.

then i got the email to say that melbourne applications are now open again for Melbourne and they closed on FEB 7th..now with all these people getting invites to a RDay this wed im getting very worried ive missed out completely..

is anyone else in the same boat?

do you think they could be donig another wave of RD's for melbourne soon?

I really hope so!!


anyone out thereknow anything they can share?

Hi Flyawaywithme,

Oh dear, it seems as though it's not as quick as I thought! I think they have a couple of GS starting shortly so I'm hoping we'll be there.

Have you tried to contact them to see how it's all going?

Also when did you do your RD? Mine was last week in SYD and I did the medical the same week. References have been checked so I'm now waiting and feeling like throwing up from the nerves! I'm also carrying my phone everywhere (and I do mean EVERYWHERE!) LOL! Would hate to miss that all important phone call.

Good luck

Sydneyshowgirl!

Hahahahaha! you sound like me! My phone is always right with me.

Well, it sounds like you're going through the stages very quickly
I was thinking the same thing as you, i was thinking of calling too but im not sure either. I think if i dont hear anything by Friday i will call. I really dont think you have anything to worry about though, i know that Syd base is priority so you will move through quickly. I had my RD about 3 weeks ago! Ahhhh!!

If you decide to call please let me know what happens, as will i
Good luck!

SydneyShowgirl and flyawaywithme

It took them 2 weeks and a couple of days to get back to me after my medical. They phoned to offer me a job, so keep your mobile phones with you. Ground school started approx. 5 1/2 weeks after that. Hope that gives you an idea of how long you may wait (of course could be different!). Good luck to both of you!!

Thumbs up Best of Luck LadyJ1

Wow that was quick, phone one day, RD the next! Good luck tomorrow, it truly is an amazing day , not at all scary (I thought they'd be really tough and mean). The recruitment team are lovely and so are the other hopefuls. Just remember to smile, chat, ask questions and be yourself. Also there are no right or wrong answers, just draw on past experience and be confident. Sending my best wishes to you and please let us know how you go. By the way is this in MELB?
