I got a "thanks but no thanks" email the other day after applying for VB in SYD last month. I didn't even get a phone interview, and I'm already crew ... now they're advertising SYD again?? I feel a bit devo.

Thanks for the congrats everyone

Ozflyer, I was offered either 25th October or 1st November so I'm going to take 1st November I think.

Jennylee, they will definitely leave a message/try again for your referee if they don't get through on first attempt. A similar thing happened to me. They only called two of my referees in the end. I know the wait can be a little...well nervous....but.....I don't think you have anything to worry about. Good luck with it all & let us know how you get on.

ilana182, you just started with Jetstar a few months ago didn't you? Maybe they thought that you may leave them just as quickly if they invest money in your training and another airline offered you a job? I'm not saying that you shouldn't have applied but just a thought as to why they didn't carry through with your application.....I would try reapplying in a year's time and I'm sure you will get a different result

Good luck to everyone else, especially those starting ground school soon. It's a great job, you'll love it! See you online soon!

Hello!

Congratulations to everyone who starts training today!

I was declined back in March for a cabin crew role and i am impatiently waiting for this 12 months to be over so I can reapply.

I have all the certificates and have nearly 5 years customer service experience, and I really do not understand why they didnt even consider me for the first round of interviews.

Does anyone have any tips for when I re apply after my 12 month wait? I dont want to apply to other airlines (I know its picky) but I specifically want to work for Virgin Blue.

Any Help would be much appreciated!

Georgia

No, don't get me wrong ... I love Jetstar! But I've always had a thing for DJ, and would love to work for VA one day!

From memory, 6 months before Staff Travel kicks in.

The credits provided per year are generally enough for 2 return tickets to LAX on standby ... or a heap of domestic flying. You also get an allocation of sectors for nominated family/friends.

Not sure how it compares with the other airlines.

They sure do! The last year each ground school (15 or so) had at least 5 in each ground school 40+, and at least 2 50+. Your age is certainly no barrier. If you impresss, they will hire you.

Virgin Blue

Hi there ....

I applied for a Virgin Blue cabin crew position in January this year, and never got through =(.. it says on the application form that you have to wait atleast 12 months before you can apply for this position again..

My question is, has anyone been in this same situation and applied before the 12 months was up and actually got through?

Thanks

Waiting....waiting....waiting

Hi guys, am wondering if anyone is in the same waiting game that I'm currently in.

Had my medical a week ago for Cabin Crew Sydney base and have not heard anything back from Virgin as yet. Is anyone else in the same situation as me?

Also wondering for current crew or crew currently in training, how long did you have to wait after your medical before Virgin called you?

The waiting is absolutely killing me!

Hey VBBoy....I heard exactly a week after my medical. Had my medical on a Thursday and the following Thursday I got 'the' call.

SO....don't worry! They might call you this afternoon or if not it'll more than likely be early next week. You'll get the job....I don't think you can really ''fail'' a medical unless of course you failed the drug test OR you are unable to perform the duties of the role as stated in the original job advertisement. So....that aside...you haven't got anything to worry about. TRY and relax!
