Hi,

Can someone please post the link to the Sydney Long Haul recruitment ad? I can't seem to find it anywhere on the VA Careers website!

Cheers

3 International Long Haul VA ground schools schedule this year so far, all are small groups of no more than 15 to replace natural attrition and having a language other than english as well is a great plus.

Good Luck

a thought for elrehab...

"im sure i can provide some useful knowledge and i have had my feet a little in the industry. Im not saying all airlines are the same, but im told that virgin and jetstar spoon feed their people hence the airheads present."

elrehab, your comments and broad generalizations about the airline industry are offensive. It is clear you really have no understanding of the industry and the companies that you are applying to work for. (Why would you apply for Emirates if you didn't want to work overseas??) I am a cabin crew member (that's 'airhead' to you), and I hope that I NEVER have the displeasure of working with you, or someone like you. In an emergency (life or death) situation we need to rely on our fellow crew, how could I rely on you?
I hope that you find an industry that suits you, preferably one that doesn't require you to work as part of a team, be professional and mature, show respect for others, know your place, and follow rules and regulations. Clearly the airline industry may not be for you. Good luck!

Hey there!

I've also applied in this recent long-haul recruitment session but haven't heard anything yet...prob not a good sign, or do they tend to go through apps in groups or stages?

Did anyone go to AD 2 weeks ago here in Sydney?
For Domestic ..
Have you received a response from VA as they said they will let us know in 2 weeks time whether we have progressed through for Medicals .. Waiting is terrifying lol. You know when you just want to know whether you have made it or not after such a long recruitment process lol. Hope to find out soon enough. Good luck to everyone !!

Waiting

Hey. I know what you guys mean about waiting. I had my AD 13th Dec, was called on 23rd Dec to complete an online test and asked if I could start 9th Jan. I said I would love to but unfortunatly i need to give correct notice to my current employer. They sayed thats ok, so we will look at a 30th Jan start for you. I said that was fine. With just 2 weeks before they called saying sorry they hadn't contacted me but had been busy with christmas and stuff, but someone would call me mid next week (Last Wednesday) regarding medical and reference checks and then a possible start date for Feb (Or the next G/S) Oh and look I am still waiting and have no one to contact about!

Perth groundschool

Hi guys, I'm afraid it's an endless waiting game. I have now been waiting 2 1/2 months after I turned down a start date back in Nov. wish I'd just started now, they told me the same thing that I'd go into a GS in Jan but still no word. I have been offered another position starting 20 th feb but really want Virgin, as I've already waited this long.

Emailed them again today to try and get some word on when the GS will be but not holding my breath as they never get back to you.


Just trying to stay positive I will hear somethink next week..

I know. I Don't understand why they give us "Possible Dates" and then hear nothing. Wouldn't it be better for them to say nothing at all?

Hi sydney ppruners, I attended an assessment day about 2 weeks ago, got a call 3 days later to do online assessment then the following business day got an email re reference checks and then got a call last Friday re medical, did that yesterday and got a call yesterday afternoon to start groundschool next Monday. In saying that I did tell them I could start ASAP and didn't require much notice, perhaps if you put on your application that you need more time they will get around to you soon for the feb ground schools.

Goodluck and keep waiting you never know what they are doing sometimes you wait months then randomly it all happens so fast

Everyday, I'm hoping I get that call... I am beginning to give up hope though. Just keep putting it down to their not being a GS yet in Perth, over east seems to be moving but not Perth.

The advise I can give is if you get offered a position, take it straight away. I turned my November start date down due to a business trip that was booked and didn't want to leave my employer in the lurch and also I wouldn't of given enough notice. This time I will just go.


Hope we all hear soon.

Anyone heard back from the recent International Recruitment (sydney), or done their online assessment and heard back? Apparently had to be done by this arvo. Just wondering if anyone is going to the assessment day in Sydney on the 31st already??

Would love you know, I guess will be finding out soon I guess, if not tomorrow, monday.

Regards

Hi Sydneysider88, I'm waiting to hear back as well. Did the online assessment, which was really odd. Verbal reasoning at that degree of difficulty for a cabin crew position is just not necessary. I'm thinking they probably had a lot of applications and that was a good way of culling. Hopefully, we'll hear back tomorrow as Monday isn't much notice for a Tuesday assessment day. Good luck with it!

Do you know, is LA and Abu Dhabi the only international destinations VA fly to out of Sydney?
