Thumbs up

Dear elehab

So sorry to hear you had a negative experience with the company and trainers which I also worked for/with.

The 4 week groundschool though very intense I found helped me tremendously not only when I got online but also during groundschool for the company who I am currently with.
It's disappointing you didnt get to make it online and I'm sure you would have loved the job and the people. I only left the company after 20 months due to being made redundant following the base closure last year

I would hate to think that by airing your not so positive opioin about the company and trainers on this forum that it would hinder you in your quest to get into another airline but unfortunately it just might.

At least you can look at the experience although not positive on your behalf as a learning experience. Now you will know what to expect next time if you get accepted into another airline and do groundschool.

Best of luck with everything

Hi all,
I have a profile on VA site and want to remove it. I tried but it would only allow me update my profile & change password. Does it mean I can never withdraw my profile?
Thanks for any advise

Marly,

Where is the long haul recruitment ad?

My understanding is they are over crewed due to heavy maintenance checks coming up on the 777's

Thanks Marly, I needed to refresh my browser window.

Weird they are hiring now as I know they are very over crewed!

Hi Citiboi83,

Thanks for that info, hopefully I hear something soon then. I've been using the cabin crew recruitment main email and you just don't get a reply.

Is there an email other then the general cabin crew one? I'd love to email them cause I'd like to see if they got my email withdrawing from the AD on the 23rd August last year - I find it weird I have applied 3 times since & can't get past the application stage? I would have thought they'd have both on-line test results & I would be given another shot to attend an AD? Do you think if the e-mail was not received I would have been marked as a no show & therefore unsuccessful so I have either 6 or 12 mths before I can re-apply? Any info would be handy cause if it's a 12 mth wait I won't waste my time applying again & again!

How do you get job alerts? On the web page?

Shelbs - when I withdrew my application for ground crew last year I received an email stating that I could not reapply for 12 months.

Lightbulb "Refer an applicant" button on Virgin career adds

Goodmorning!

I was just wondering if anyone knew what exactly the refer an applicant link on the virgin job adds mean? Is this link to send the job to someone you think would suit the job or who may want to apply for the job, or is it for people to recommend someone who has already applied?
I am just a little confused as at the top of the page it reads "email a job" but the questions that are asked of the person sending the link are that of someone giving a recommendation?
Ha ha maybe it's just to early for me to be thinking this hard!! If anyone could let me know that would be fantastic

Have a great day x

I do remember reading that if you can't make an assessment day that's okay just re-apply next time the base is recruiting? Oh well time to move on if it's meant to be it will be
