Elrehab !!!

in reply to your post i would advise being adaptable, dont come into the airline industry thinking that things will be done the way you want, to be honest in massive companies such as Virgin Australia and Qantas your just a number you may be the face of an airline but they work you hard and expect a lot. Everyday things change such as schedules and dates and if you love the job and want it you need to be flexible and accept it.

and just while im here reading your other posts on emirates etc: this is meant to be a supportive forum not one telling people that if they dont get in a third time to stop trying .... emirates isn't like tiger (standards are higher) a lot more people apply and they are a lot more picky in who they choose.

Good Luck with your interview but if you don't get it, yet really want it keep trying!!!! it's a competitive industry ...

im really being realistic. I have a lot of experience with middle easterns and especially middle eastern men. A company run by middle eastern men (emirates) well , they are very image based. And of course they discriminate. Emirates hire older people over 30. Yes they do. My friends friend made it. But shes an extremely attractive 35 year old woman. Why do you think they ask for casual pics of potential recuits if they make it to the interview stage. Does providing casual pics really matter? To tell you the truth (me) a person who loves photos and have a portfolio of professional pics, and thousands of other artistic style pictures, it honestly really put me off and made me depressed for the moment. And this is coming from a person that has numerous upon numerous glamour professional model pics to present to a company such as emirates.

So, will they choose me because i look hot? maybe, i have years upon years of customer service experience, and can answer any question confidently, but its an extreme turn off for me to be chosen based on looks. thats why i feel comfortable applying for airlines that arent as strict and choose a whole range of people based on merit.

i wouldnt change myself in order to join an airline.,

thanks for wishing me luck. i would prefer virgin australia over tiger though, but i go in later today with the knowledge i have a job with tiger. so im all cool with that , am not stressing

advice to people is not to stress. keep applying for jobs even if you have got a job with an airline. always search for better. My tiger training has been put on hold. But im going to go for other interviews with other airlines. i might even go to emirates in june 11th, if anything just to see how they run it all. open yourself to other possibilities and just go and experience it all.

I've passed too!

I've gone to the Thursday interview and passed the first half.

How did your second half go?
Have they asked you at the end of the second half about the time frame in order for you to notice your current job?
They asked me so I said two weeks. But then I thought, if they want us to start to train at the end of this months, we have to be cleared all the medical and all that jazz, how it is possible if I need two week notice?

I hope it won't affect their decision making...

Best of luck to you too!

AD in MEL

Hi Everyone

Has anyone attended the AD on 1st-3rd Jun in Mel?
I went on Thursday block and I have been told that by not having RSA with me (or booking reference) is a disadvantage.
I've promised to get it in one week, and quickly I booked for it and got RSA today.

My question is,
1:is any of you in the similar situation (did not have certificate/proof of booking) ?
2: has anyone heard back from them in regards to further process i.e. Reference check or no thank you letter?
3: should I tell recruitment team/HR that I have RSA now?(does it help?)

This waiting period......Super nervous...
I've read the forum and so many of you got the dream job and so many of you still challenging to get it.
Very inspiring!

Fingers crossed to all of us-wannabes!!

employers usually need 2 weeks notice. i told them i can start ASAP even though i work at the moment. my boss is pretty cool. she knows im applying for this job. im really anxious and i do hope i have passed the interview (i went on wed). if so, i want to do the training by the end of the month...i have my fingers crossed.

i have all my certificates. But if you do them ASAP, perhaps send them an email telling them you have completed it. It wont hurt to tell them and im sure they read the messages. I sent them a message last Tuesday in regards to the Assessment day location in melbourne and they kindly responded to my message straight away really.

All the best to everyone..i think we will know by 2 weeks .i dont think medical takes that long to do

Hi elrehab

Thanks for your respond!!
I just sent an e-mail to the recruite team. I guess over the weekend, I should Not expect any respond till next week

I should have said ASAP in regards to the notice like you, elrehab.
I have accumulated annual leave that I can use so technically I'm allowed to use it before I leave
Your boss is a very understanding person! Lucky you!
My boss doesn't know yet. Its a big company so I'm sure me-leaving the company don't effect much impact (I can let my customer know, and should be fine. ). I hope she will understand the way your boss does too when I tell her.

So hard not to think about this whole process. I was trying to watch a movie at home last night but I ended up reading all the threads on this web sites.
Can't help it!!

Well, all I can do is to pray and crossing my fingers!!

Apart from elrehab and I, has anyone gone to the interview??
How did yours go?

virgin Australia - Melbourne Recruitment

Hey Guys, so i know the frist round for interviews were, Wednesdy 1st, Thursdy 2nd & Friday 3rd June. I still haven't heard anything myself as yet, no phone interview and or e-mail for a invite to a assessment day!
I applied around the 19th May before applications closed on the 22nd may., just wondering does anybody know if they will do more invite days coming up or just the one's that were last week in June.?

cheers

Hey elrehab

Thank you for your reply.
I emailed to recruite team regarding my RSA certificate.
It's better to notify than been rejected because they think I don't have a certificate!!!

How did your individual interview go?
Mine was very straight forward.
Previous threads said a lot Of People took twenty minuets but mine was overall ten mins or so???
Maybe I just felt fast, questions were 4of them and I answered completely.
Hope I didn't answer too short.

Did you hear anything back from them?
I don't think they will send or call any response before this weekend.
(HR is closed I suppose) sooooo exciting!!!

Has anyone gone to MEL AD 1-3rd June round???
How did you guys go??

Fingers crossed to all of us!!!!

Hi flyboy

I applied on the 15th and received my invitation to AD on the 26th via email.
I'm not sure how it works but as far as I have read from previous thread, if you are not applicable, you should be receiving a "thank you but no thank you" email.
So I guess, since you haven't received anything from them, I believe there should be some hope??
I'll cross my fingers for you too!!!!

It seems the people who applied for the Perth base right at the beginning of the recruiting phase were asked for interview quickly (interviewing around the 12th and 13th of May) and given positions before the closing date for applications had even passed. I know at least 3 people who did this. They're starting ground school on the 9th of June. I also know people who applied right before the closing date and haven't recieved anything, even those with experience in aviation already under their belts, myself included. Seems they got all the numbers they needed early on in the recruitment period and have filled the June 9 ground school already for Perth.
I have heard that they want to do another ground school in September so maybe in a few months we might be lucky enough to be contacted!

Virgin Australia - Melbourne Base

Hey guys, has anyone else heard anything for Virgin Australia - Melbourne Base applications.? For any other upcoming interviews in June?
Im still yet to here something via email and or telephone, havent been told if i am successful or unsucessful for this matter.

I know there where interviews Wednesday 1st June Thursday 2nd June and Friday 3rd June 2011. A few of my friends got an interview for those days.

I also here that Virgin Australia - for Melbourne Base will be continuing to assessment days for the rest of June.? Not sure, as my friend who is Cabin Crew Supervisor advised me of this. I have been blue stared, which should automatically get an invite and or phone call but still waiting.

Let me know if you guys know anything else, or have call backs / emails or in same boat

cheers
