Seriously....just get the passport! they only take a week usually to post out to you after lodging at the post office. You'll use it within the next 10 years (I assume you'll go overseas at some point in 10 years????)
I can't remember if I took my passport to recruitment day or not.....but......it seems a silly thing to be worrying about so just go and get it. One less thing to think about, surely?

Hi,
Has anyone applied for PER base & heard anything? I received an email saying I had progressed past the interview stage and they had called my references last week so now I am just waiting I was wondering if anyone has been asked to do medicals yet?
As to MEL recruitment Im not 100% sure but with the PER interviews I applied on the 8th of this month and received an email for interviews on the 12th even though the applications closed on the 22nd as well. And it seemed like they weren't doing anymore interviews after that week, so maybe MEL is the same but maybe not. If you have missed the interviews I was told that PER & MEL bases are going to experience the most growth so im sure in the next few months they will recruit again so I guess its best to submit applications super early.
Also with the passport a girlfriend of mine didn't have her passport but she just brought along proof that she had applied so i am sure that's fine!

Hi TrolleyDolly... what gave you the impression there won't be any more interviews for Perth even though applications only closed on the weekend?

I received a call today advising me that I had not been successful in securing a CC role. Eventhough I had been waitlisted for a domestic cabin crew position Brisbane base since February 2011.

I attended the RD back in December 2010, progressed through the referee checks, received a phone call advising that I had been waitlisted and now I get the disappointing news.

I was told that all of the applications were looked at and it was concluded after all of this time that I am not suitable.

I am going to phone tomorrow and ask them to explain the reasons as to why after five months they think I am not the right person for the role.

I think they have mixed my application up quite frankly.

I applied feb this year I'm pretty sure so if you applied in the may intake I would say you will get a phone interview in the next month or two. I don't know if the application selection progress goes by alphabetical order. I also have a !luestar referral but as we all know the aviation industry is very unpredictable.

Melbourne Base

I applied for Melbourne which closed on Sunday afternoon. I recieved an email on Tuesday saying I was invited to an assessment day. Which is end of next week.
The last time I applied I got the email saying sorry but we have recieved to much interest so apply next time. So if you dont have an interview just keep apply it really is the only option!

I applied for Virgin last week but haven't heard anything yet but have been invited to a Jetstar assessment day next week.
VB Belle- that sounds really unfair!

Hi Flyboy,

Let us now if you hear anything.

No, you will just need proof that you are booked in to do it.

Good luck, hope you get an interview

I applied for the Perth base too, on the 20th of May as well, and have yet to hear anything. I don't think it's necessarily going to be two weeks or so before you hear anything. It's different for everyone. I work with someone who applied early in may and she was called within an hour of applying and asked to attend an interview. That being said because we have applied very close to the closing date perhaps it will take longer for them to contact us if and when they do. I am trying not to get my hopes up that they will call - even though I have flying experience it doesn't matter - I know they have knocked back people who have experience - you really can't know what they are looking for and it varies from applicant to applicant and interviewer to interviewer I reckon. So I'm trying not to think about it (although it doesn't stop me constantly checking my emails!)

Hey...no there is nothing else after the Medical...that is the final stage of the recruitment process....you will get a call after the medical to advise if you are successful and ground school start date (if there is one planned) and they send you an email with all the info you need and post you out an Orientation pack in the mail.

Perth base

hi thanks for your reply Joannejo,
Just wondering if you complete your medical after how long do you get a job offer? When do you actually sign the job contract?
And would you know by when do you need the first aid course completed?

Thanks B

Hi no problems...after the medical I think it was around 5 days when I got the call and the job offer...I had my medical on a Thursday and I think they called me around the Tuesday of the next week. They then post you the orientation pack in the mail within a couple of days and within that pack is your contract which you read over, sign and post back to them. The first aid course, I'm not sure to be honest. I assume you will need to have completed this by the time you sign your contract...or perhaps by the time your ground school starts? Just do it as soon as you can and then it's done...it's an easy course.
Hope that helps!

hi guys, i got a virgin interview this week in melbourne. i also have a confirmed traning with tiger airways (although they've put my july 4th training on hold. am so annoyed) . anyway, can anyone tell me about working with Virgin Airlines, i know its better than tiger, are the staff pay, benefits really good and as they have partner airlines, is that a good step to working with other airlines..

anyway any thoughts about working with Virgin, much appreciated from anyone. thanks!

oli 90, im attending the june recruitment day on wednesday june 1st. in melbourne although i dont have the venue yet. it says TBA

i also have a thing to add about airlines in general. I really hate the waiting game. If they are after professional loyal people. Then how about airlines get their act together and be honest to people. I dont know how virgin is like. But tiger airways told us that the two training dates were 30th may and 4th july. i choose the july one i have to quit my job and tell my employers. in saying that had they told us that the 4th july training wasnt confirmed then i wont be in this position where i already told work that im gonna quit in a month and now im stuck. At lleast now i have a chance with Virgin. But i've read of people waiting for months on end. We all have to live somehow and and pay bills and we cant sit at home waiting and be at the beck and call of airlines that play with us. Now Virgin contacted me today (Monday 30th) for an interview choice on Wednesday (1st) Thursday (2nd) or Friday (3rd). i Chose wednesday, but its still all too very soon. We're expected to come on an interview at short notice, yet play the waiting game come interviews, training etc. Not very fair at all.


I guess im all new to the airline business. Tiger airways was the first airline cabin crew job i applied for. But i trusted their word on what they said about the training dates.. Now im really not going to trust any airlines word.

does anyone know what you need to bring to the virgin interview, they havnt emailed me the stuff yet
