We do fly with other bases... Today I flew with a Melbourne Girl and later on a Brisbane guy... We do end up floating around.

I applied on the Saturday 23rd and still havent heard anything either.. pretty sure they contact you either way if you are successful or not. Havent heard of any other recruitment days other than the 27th, 28th and 29th of October. I would assume they will have more if the job only closed on the 29th.. unless they got enough people from those ones

Hi!

Hey everyone!
I am just new to this website but i thought it may be useful as i currently work for Jetstar but have applied for VB Brisbane base on the 13th November and Perth base on the 16th of November!
I am so excited about the prospect of working for Virgin Blue! Has anyone else applied for these positions? Both were only online for 5 days at the most so im not sure how hopeful i should be as may they are only completing a small recruitment drive! Can someone tell me can i apply for two bases at once or can i only apply for one?
Any help would be much appreciated!

The virgin rules are you can only apply for one job at a time. I have made that experience at my own expense applying for more then one job at once. Then if you are successfull great, if you are not the stand down period applies for any other jobs with virgin.
good luck

Hi everyone,
Just wondering if anyone had heard anything about the BNE base applications? Does anyone know if they will let you know either way, or will they only tell you if you've made it to the interview??
How long does it usually take them to invite you to the Recruitment Day??
Thanks!

Hey guys,
Just reading your posts, I went for my RD back in October, 4 days later I recieved an email saying I had been progressed and they would give me fornightly updates. I havent heard anything yet but 2 days ago they contacted 2 of my references! But still nothing! Im trying to be patient but
its so hard when you want something to badly!
Congratulations to all those who are successful
xxxxx

I'm in the same boat as you guys. I had my RD end of October received the progression email a few days later then had references checked. I have heard nothing for a month. I'm from Melbourne but applied for Sydney base. I'll be moving in with a friend from Sydney if I get in. Does anyone know when they are starting Sydney training?? This feels like the longest month of my life. I want this job so much it's not funny.

Wow i would love to live in Sydney! Does anyone know of anyone who got an unsuccessful email? Or do we all get thru this stage and they cut at the end?

Lisaa that is a great question
I have been thinking the same thing. From what I have read on here from previous candidates once references have been checked and are good it's safe to say they are then sent to complete a medical. I know they say at any stage we can be unsuccessful but I think they are quick to send out the "thanks but no thanks' emails if you are not what they are looking for.
I'm really not sure but it's a great question and I would love know if we can be cut after a good reference check????

Yes you can be cut after a reference check, good, bad or otherwise. They may have more viable candidates than positions. Obviously in that case it's possible to be rejected even after a good reference check. Just like any job, they will take the best candidate for the job, and that may not be you.

Candidates have also been unsuccessful during ground school as well, it's by no means certain that you have the job until you are checked to line and pass your probation period. Anytime in the first 6 months you can be unsuccessful. Something to keep in mind.

Has anyone heard anything about the ground crew position in Melbourne that closed on November 3rd? I'm ever so patiently sticking out my current job... It's painful! Argh will there ever be a plane at the end of this long tunnel!

Hi ash.1111

Congrats on attending an AD.
When you got an email were you able to book in for an assessment session without any problem?
I got an invitation as well but I'm having a problem getting through the booking process... I sent an email and am waiting for a reply.

Good luck
