HI deebz
I thought my RD with VB went well in Dec 2010...the VB recruitment team made you feel relaxed and they were friendly and professional. But is was not successful.?
- We started off with an intro to the Virgin Blue company by the VB team. Participating in this by reading up on the VB website helped.
- A group exercise where you all have to provide input and participate..not hard.
- Comprehension test which is multiple choice for 30 mins. Read it carefully.
- A interview (30mins) with 2 VB team members regarding your CV and questions relating to specific times in your previous career...giving examples.
Approx 3.5 hrs in total.
Overall not a daunting experience at all.
Good Luck and be yourself.

Thanks heaps for the info, much appreciated
Im not nervous (well not yet anyway) I did get a job with Tiger airways and I managed to stay relaxed on the recruitment day so I prepared for the Virgin one.
Sorry to hear you didn't get threw
Best of luck next time !!!

Talking VB Belle

Hi All

I am new to this site and was wondering if anyone who attended the VB RD for cabin crew positions on 14.12.10 in Brisbane have heard anything yet?

I attended the VB RD day on 14.12.10 and I was very happy with the day. On 15.12.10 I received a call from one of the VB Recruitment Officers who advised that I had progressed the referee check stage and my referees would be called.

My referees were called on 15.12.10 and gave over the phone referee checks. Since this time I heard nothing.

I am wondering if anyone who attended the 14.12.10 VB RD has progressed to the medical checks stage or have been offered cabin crew positions yet?

I am going crazy just waiting as I have heard nothing since 15.12.10, I really want to work for VB.

Hi VB Belle!

I wasn't a member of this site but came across your post & thought i'd better join so I can reply to your post!

I also attended the VB cabin crew recruitment day on 14th December, I received an email to advise me they were going to contact my references and my references were called shortly afterwards. That was all back in December and haven't heard anything either so can appreciate your wait.

Did you attend the morning or afternoon session? I was at the afternoon session, I think ash.1111 who posted in this thread a few comments ago was in my interview group too, Ash if you read this i'd love to know if you have heard anything back from VB? Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us!

My friend who works for VB mentioned that their offices in Bowen Hills, Brisbane were evacuated last week due to the severe flooding. I wonder if the recruitment staff are based there? If so might explain the delay in getting back to us, hopefully no news is good news! Good luck all

Talking Hi Bonnielassie

Hi Bonnielassie

I attended the morning VB RD on 14.12.10 and a total of 15 people attended on the day. I got a telephone call from VB at 9am on 15.12.10 (only one day later), not an email saying that they were going to be contacting my referees. In some ways I would much prefer an email over a telephone call any day.

In response to you enquiry if the VB Recruitment Team Office is located in Bowen Hills, so if this is true then I imagine it could be another month before we hear anything definitely.

I was speaking to someone who use to be a Cabin Crew Supervisor and she told me that if you indicate that you know someone who works for VB then you will be fast tracked and be offered a job sooner.

Hope you hear soon if you have been successful in securing a cabin crew position.

Totally incorrect. Why would you knowing someone make them put you in a ground school any sooner than otherwise? There was a blue star program where a referral from a VB employee would get you an interview, that's it! You may as well find out now, since you're intent on being crew, that a lot of what other crew tell you is rubbish. It's called galley gossip. And once being a CS, does not make the information any more credible btw....

Hi VirginBluGirl,

In regards to your question, sometimes it takes them ages to get back to you, They deal with thousands upon thousands of applications. I applied back in January of 2010, had my interview in May last year and started working for Virgin blue in August/September.... It's a really long process.

I hope you get an interview soon

A colleague of mine who is about to begin ground school for the Perth base informed me that when she is fitted for her uniform she is going to be fitted with the new Virgin uniform. I ahd no idea they were getting a new uniform and am super curious as to what it's like and if it's an improvement on the super casual and super drab red and tan. I hope it is! Would be a good idea to up the ante with the uniform to make it a bit more glam to go hand in hand with the step up in service and such that they are planning.

Hi all,

I was just wondering if the "song and dance" aspect of VB recruitment is still part of the interview stages? I know when they first started they would have candidates develop a short routine that often involved singing and dancing, I guess to show "Virgin flair", comfort infront of people, team work and all those things.

Is this still done? Or is the Virgin recruiment process now more akin to Qantas and Jetstar with "standard" role plays etc?

Speaking to another VB applicant on another forum and she received an ivitation on Friday to attend an Assessment day this Wednesday (just passed). Apparently there were 2 assessment days on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Her notes didn't mention a song and dance routine but she did mention that there were NO role plays. She was nervous about doing role plays so I'm sure if there was a S&D routine she would have mentioned it.

I haven't heard anything yet and was surprised she received notification of an assessment day so quick as she applied for the Feb 6 cutoff too. Maybe they are going through past applicants. She did mention she had been to a VB assessment day in the past...?????

Sorry to give info 3rd hand..but this is all that I know.

Wishing all applicants goodluck.

Perth Virgin Blue 2011

Hi!
I applied for VB Perth November, I applied the day the applications open and continually updated my information...the applications closed 28th january and I havent heard anything as yet.
I was just wondering if anyone had an interview for Perth VB for the very recent intake.
I understand there has been a ground school going through in January but I am assuming this is for people who have been on hold.
I have been working as CC with Jetstar and have an internal reference with VB so I was hoping and praying to at least get an interview! but i have given up hope!
They usually email a 'thankyou but you have not been successful for an interview' email but I have not recieved that either! any feedback would be great!
