Thanks CAS90. At least it gives me an idea of what to expect.

I hope I don't have to wait that long.

In my application it asked if I had any commitments in the next three months, so i am hoping that is an indication of how soon they want to recruit.

What base are yuo going to be working at?

Hey Guys,

Did anyone else have a phone interview for MEL base today? If so how did you go?

I was so nervous! Hopefully the interviewer saw through that and I hear back from them soon.

The medical was in Botany road. They dont tell you if you pass or fail. However, they did mention that I had initially failed the drug test... I had some neurofen plus the day prior as I had a headache. So they had to send my 'sample' off for analysing. Because of this, the medical cost $302... but, end result is worth it!

Ahh im so nervous!
Btw whats your name ozflyer??
Do you know anyone else in our training?
May I advise that you keep your real identities private, this forum is based on being anonymous which is 99% of the case. I understand the excitement of getting into the school is overwhelming, nerve racking and you need to protect yourself and your position.

good luck and I wish you well, its a great job!

Hey Wannabe,

Great news on the phone interview. What sort of questions did they ask? Did they say anything about recruitment days? I have applied for MEL base too.

Hey Time to Fly!

They asked me:
What do I like about my current job?
What does my current job entail?
Why did I leave my last Job?
What do I think is the most important part of the Cabin Crew position?
What do I know about the airline?
And most importantly, Why do I want to work for vb?

They didn't tell me much, they said that they are currently shortlisting people and I should find out within the next 5 days weather or not I have progressed to the next stage.

When did you apply for the MEL position? Fingers crossed you get a call from them soon.

Hi Jennylee,

I just got an email today to organise my phone interview. That is all i can tell you because it has been a while since i have been through an airline (and especially a Virgin Group) interview process. I will let you know as it unfolds.

Hi Jennylee,

Time to fly applied for MEL base and so have I. I applied back in March and only got notified 2 weeks ago via email about my phone interview and I had it on Tuesday. In answer to your question yes they did call on a blocked number. Apart from your interviews most correspondence is done via email.

T.T.F, no I haven't been CC before. I'm a newbie Have you flown before?
When did you book in for you phone interview? I havent heard anything back from them yet.

Hey Narlee,

How did you go with your medical today.
I still havent heard anything yet. The waiting is killing me. I know VB said that they will let us know by the end of the week if I passed the medical but everytime the phone rings I jump.
Let me know how you go or if you hear anything
