Hi all,
Congrats on getting invitations for the Recruitment days I assume this is all for Cabin Crew? Does anyone know when they will be recruiting for Ground Crew again? Heard any rumors? Anyone got any information?
Thank you.

VAustralia 2011

Looking for anyone else that attended one of VA's July recruitment days in Sydney.

I have been advised that I progressed from the assessment day to reference checks which would take place "immediately or within the next few weeks" - just over 3 weeks later and none of my referees have been called.

Is anyone else in the same position? Has anyone progressed further? And (getting a bit ahead of myself) any rumoured dates for ground schools?

Just to clarify, VA = VAustralia, the international (LA, Abu Dhabi) carrier.

Hi There flyawaywithva,

I attended a Recruitment Day in July as well. I have received the same email, but 3 weeks later have heard nothing, and none of my references have been contacted either!

Is there anyone else out there who attended a V Australia Recruitment Day in July 2011 and progressed through to the reference day? If so, have you heard anything since the last email 3 weeks ago?

GS is September

Next VA ground school is scheduled for Sep 5th and is a small class of only around 12 for this intake. More recruitment days will be held in August.

gday cloudtraveller,

Hi Cloudtraveller,

The 5th September is for VA, not DJ??

I would guess that attendees have been notified already

You say more recruitment days will be held in August, do you know what that means for us July guys and gals? If the Sept training group is small couldn't they have added a few more of us (if they really liked us!)? I don't know how it all works but it seems strange that they have been recruiting if they already had a bunch of people on hold and have no more gs planned. A month seems like an awfully long time to be waiting for them to call and do reference checks.

Not really sure how it all works behind the scenes, I am just super, super keen & hoping for good news soon!!

PS. Moderator - I think we need to split VA & DJ, especially as DJ are now know as "Virgin Australia", is this possible?

Hi cloudtraveller,

Is the September ground school for Domestic or International? Is it for V Australia or Virgin Blue?

Are you attending this Ground School? If so, how long from your recruitment day until you heard that you were going to the Ground School?

Thanks so much for the info!

G/S Sept

Hi Cloudtraveller,

Yes, please clarify whether the 5th September g/s is for VA or DJ.

I would guess that attendees have been notified already

HI ALL.

So I applied for a Guest Service Agent position, does having a planned holiday in the coming months would lessen my chances of being hired? It's only a two week holiday.

I'll be attending my interview next week, can anyone who has been through the interview process spill some details on what kind of questions would be asked?

thanks!

Hi everyone

I'm a long-time reader, first-time member of PPRune. I'm interested to watch the developments of VA (International) Cabin Crew recruitments as i'm keen to one day pursue my dream of being International Cabin Crew for VA.

I applied in June 2011 (where applications were extended to July) and really believed that I had a good chance. I'm still yet to hear any feedback on my progress and am being hopeful that 'no news is good news' ...

I had all minimum requirements fulfilled with previous and current Airline experience - the only thing I did not posses was Arabic Language skills. I understand that this recent recruitment was seeking Arabic speaking applicants, so i'm hoping that perhaps they are prioritizing an Arabic speaking applicants and that I'll be considered in a future recruitment.

Is anyone else in a similar situation? Or has everyone here that has been successful in progressing to interview stages etc also NOT had any Arabic Language skills?

Hey Virgin Australian,

I'm in the same boat as you, but I don't have any previous cabin crew experience. I applied for the V Australia International Cabin Crew (Arabic Language Skills) position in July and haven't heard back as yet. I think you're right in saying they're most likely prioritising for Arabic speakers first.

I'm going to submit an application for DJ as well - would be ridiculously happy making it to either domestic or international!

All the best with your application.

To all aspiring applicants, I'd like to point out that the plural of aircraft is....aircraft. There is no such word as 'aircrafts'. Aircraft's is a word and refers to something belonging to an aircraft such as....the aircraft's wings.

There were several non Arabic speakers at the July assessment day, and I know that at least 2 of them have progressed to reference checks.

Good luck

August 11th SYD

Hey Everyone!

I had my RD last Thursday morning and made it through the whole day. We started with 15 people and after the first cut we were left with 7. Such an amazing group of people, we had so much fun.

We were told that we would be contacted within the next 2 weeks with the progress of our application!

SO EXCITED!!!!!!!! YAY

Has anyone else been to RD in SYD recently? Would love to hear from you.

Good luck to everyone! I wish you all the best.


LEE

P.S. They are recruiting for a talent pool, just incase you were wondering.
