Hi Guys,

Had RD today for Sydney Base. It's hard to believe other posts about what to expect when your so nervous....but seriously It was actually alor of fun, yes you are nervous, but everyone else is also nervous and the VB staff recognise that aswell.

Tips: always smile, talk to lots of people, participate fully in activities (but dont go over the top and allow other people to also speak).

Comprehension test......read some paragrahs on airlines safety and circle correct answer.

Interview (behavioural questions....you do need to have specific examples from your work history).

Above all be yourself, there is no "1 type" of person they are looking for. Dont be something which you arnt.

Good luck to all.

Syd Vbrd

Hi All!

I also was at the VBRD in SYD today! Tue 23 Feb! So Surferboy we were at the same VBRD!

Fingers crossed!

One of my references actually called me at 3pm saying that VB had called him! Wow that was quick! Only a few hours after the RD! Thats got to be a good sign...right?

Any thoughts?

I check the website every single day and never saw anything? And I emailed them only a couple of weeks ago to see when they would be recruiting for Brisbane and they said they would not be sure. Sorry I don't mean to sound like I'm whinging, I'm just really upset that I might have missed out on my number one choice. Are there any other PPruners out there that saw it?

Ahh yeah I thought it was weird because they hadn't had it listed on the website. It looked like it was by invite only but I still had the option to 'email to a friend' (which I did) and they had their phone interviews yesterday as well.

I applied initially for the DEC09 BNE recruitment that got canned if thats helps?

I was wondering about the phone interviews. Do they let you know when they're going to call you, or do you just have to be ready in interview mode when they do? I work full time and am worried I'll get called while I'm at work.

Also, does anyone know if they still do the Blue Star Referral Program?

Hi ilana182,

They just call you however I wasn't able to pick up my call so they emailed to say they had been trying to contact me. In the email I had a number to call them back on...so that was good gave me time to be ready for interview. I was invited to Rday at end of phone interview.

G'day,
Are there people out there from the Feb recruitment stage that are still waiting to hear/ Should I assume that If i have not heard anything by now that I was unsuccessful? As now March recruitment is being advertised?

Anyone with any info would really appreciate your comments views.

Have a good week

Trollytom,

Have you been to a recruitment day? Or are you waiting to be invited?? I would suggest if you havent been invited yet just re-apply for the current intake for Syd base.
If you have had your rd and you havent heard back i really wouldnt worry, no news is good news right?!

Hope this helps
Goodluck

Hi Flyawaywithme
Thanks for replying,
The only communication that I have had was the automated reply to say they have received my application form - nothing else -

Checking my emails constantly

Have re-applied for the March opening fingers crossed and good luck to all x

I was at the SYD RD on 23 Feb and I have yet to hear back from them. They did say 2 weeks, so we have to see after one more week, the waiting is killing me too!

They did call all my references though...is that not a good sign?
