To all of those who got accepted for the 11th of October training, Congratulations!!! My tips are to study hard and be prepared for what will be a demanding 5 weeks. I just finished week three and have another 2 to go. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!

Hi all,

I had my interview with Virgin Blue last week and I am all excited and can't wait to receive the answer. But in the same time, I know we were a lot of people and I might not be the one.
So I keep looking for jobs and I have 2 job interviews this week for check-in position.
Does anyone know something about Toll Dnata and Aero-Care? How they treat their employees and if they get any bebefits, since they are not airlines.
Thanks for your help

question for ozflyer

hey ozflyer......just had a question for you......sorry not related to your question! but I had my medical yesterday (everything was fine, as far as I know, Dr said I was healthy and whatever)....how long did you wait after your medical before they called you to offer you a job?

Just curious if I can possibly expect a call today or if it's gonna be after the long weekend!

thanks

Good luck

Thanks ozflyer! It's for Sydney base. I didn't get a call yesterday so I'll just have to wait it out until next week I only went to Medical on Thursday so I wasn't overly confident I'd get an answer yesterday.

Have a great weekend! I'll keep you posted.

Joannejo, after talking with a few of the girls from group 144 (just graduated yesterday!!) some waited up to 2 weeks to hear back from them, I got the job offer the day after my medical, I hope to see all of those in the October 11 school on line, best of luck to group 146!

For those of you about to commence training, it'll be the hardest 5 weeks ever, but in saying that, pretty much everyone passes ground school, my whole class did. And you will hear lots of "you've joined the company at a very exciting time", once you finish ground school, you will never look back. So enjoy it and prepare for the ride of your life, because it's just only begun!

Do i have to wait 12 months!?

Hi all, I recently applied for cabin crew virgin blue & i recieved an email today saying my aplication was unsucessful & i will have to wait 12 months to re-apply. Does this mean that even i didnt get through to the inteview stage, I still have to wait 12 months before i send my resume of again? I felt as though my resume was good enough.. Does anyone have any tips on catching their attention in the application process (Resume) Thanks =]

Does anyone know what the next step is?

micka, yes you have to wait 12 months, however you can apply for other positions within the company, just not cabin crew in the next 12 months.

Jennylee, the next step is the medical, it may take some time however.

Jennylee...

The next step is calling your references...if they are happy with the reference checks, they will then call you to invite you to a medical. After the telephone call they will send you an e-mail with the details of the medical centre etc and you have to call to make an appointment.

The medical takes around an hour to complete and is pretty straight forward.

If all is well with the medical they should call you again and offer you a job.

For me, I had a recruitment day.....4 days later they called my references..1 day after the reference checks I got a call and was invited to a medical.....

When I called the medical centre the first available appointment wasn't for 4 days, so I had to wait a few days to go and do that.

My medical was 6 days ago now and I haven't heard anything yet, however, as far as I know my medical was fine so it's just a case of waiting for 'the call' for me now. Hopefully I will get a job, but, as they say...there is no guarantees at any stage of the recruitment process. Also, they say it can be up to a two week wait to hear from them, so I'm being patient because it hasn't been even a week yet.

Good luck. I think times def vary from person to person....but don't worry. The fact you progressed past the recruitment day is a good sign.

Keep us updated and I hope all goes well for you

p.s. Thanks for your reply rjsyd last week too! Appreciate it

Hi Joannejo,

sorry to be a pain but did they specifically tell you they were going to contact references or did they just call references after they sent you the email advising you had progressed.

That's fine Jennylee...

No they just called my referees...the only reason I knew they'd called them was that one of my referees let me know they'd spoken to them after they'd called.

p.s. I got the job! They just called me to advise I'd got through the medical and offered me a job and a start date etc. Yay me
