Make your own decision

It is a demanding job, however many Virgin crew are parents and successful crew.

It all depends on your personal situation and your work ethic. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

You can certainly bid for work patterns that suit you and while you are not guarenteed anything, you eventually work out how the bidding works best for you.

Go for it.

You also need to aware that you can only bid for the pairings available from your base. Perth is very different to east coast bases in terms of pairings, especially with regard to the multiple-day trips.

Hi all, you got an interview for Brisbane base for the 27th? Are they recruiting now? The website says 'accepting inetrest'...just wondered. Also, does anyone know when they will be recruiting for ground crew again? In Mel/Syd or Bne? It says 'accepting interest' but I wondered if they were actively recruiting at the moment?

When they put an ad up in their careers section on the website, you definately know they are recruiting then.....

True airborneSoon.....however.....what is the difference between 'accepting interest' and 'recruiting now'...does accepting interest mean SOON to be recruiting...OR.....does it mean they are actively organising the recruitment assessment days etc and contacting people?
Thanks.

Accepting interest means not recurring right now but sure stick your cv on file if you want. Recruiting now means we are calling people for recruitment days. not so hard....

Thanks for the replies. That was what I assumed, I guess it just didn't make sense to me that someone has been invited to an interview when the website currently says ''accepting interest'' only.

I applied for the Perth basings that were being recruited for at the end of June and have heard nothing either way. How long do they usually take to get in contact and that said, do they also let you know if you're unsuccessful in even getting to recruitment day phase?

Thanks

SYD Base Assessment

Hi Guys,

I applied last week for Sydney Base as website stated Accepting Interest and I received an email 3 days ago from Virgin Australia Recruitment to complete a further online Assessment online. Which was a timed 17min read and answer module. I dont know about the results but I will be getting future correspondence from Virgin Australia.in the next day or 2.

The Virgin Australia Rep who called me advised they will be doing Sydney Assessment this month but just need to complete the assessment and wait on a call/email from him.
Lets wait and see.

I too did the 17 minute test thingy the other day and today recieved an email inviting me to the recruitment day on Thursday the 11th of August for the Sydney base. I have booked in a time to go but am cautious to book a flight over there from Perth for it, as I was unsuccessful after having an interview for the Perth base in June, and thought that this meant I couldn't apply for any Virgin position for another 12 months. Since I still recieved an invitation to the Sydney RD does this mean it is only PERTH that I cannot apply for again until a year has passed? I don't want to buy an airfare to Sydney and back if I am going for a RD I am not eligible for. But surely the recruitment office wouldn't have sent me an invitation for Sydney if I wasn't eligible?

Does anyone know the deal? Can you help?

Also, does anyone have any info on the Sydney base? What's it like? How big is it? Where do you typically fly to if you're based in Sydney? Are there many overnights? What aircrafts are you endorsed on?

It's 12 months for any position, any location.

Sorry to say there is not much of a reason to head to Sydney and go to the recruitment day.

Well that's what I thought! I wonder why they invited me to the Sydney recruitment day then? A glitch in the system and someone didnt realise I had only recently been unsuccessful in Perth? Is there someone I could call to confirm for sure? I don't even know where to start looking for a number...

Because they outsource for the site on which you apply, I get the feeling that they don't cross check things like how long since you've applied before sending an invite. But I've definitely been told 12 months for all positions

August 11th

Hi Guys,

I have been invited to the assessment day on Thursday, I have something on in the morning and am trying desperately to move so I can be free in time to attend. Does anyone have an idea or general educated estimate as to when the GS would be? I just have one project at my current job that I would like to see all the way through from my original idea to being implemented. Is everyone booked for the 1230 to 430 session?

J

Simply not true, recruitment is going on now and they are starting new ground schools consistently. There is not a 12 month wait despite what some say, I am at the training centre this week and can confirm there is recruitment and ground schools ongoing.

Cloudtraveller,
We're not talking about GS dates. If you do not pass a Virgin assessment day, you're required to wait 12 months before interviewing again for another CC position
