I am totally on the fence as to if I apply for Virgin AGAIN!! I was thinking of a total career change but not sure cause I love love flying & working as a cabin crew member.
I have been out of the industry for about 5 years & keep getting drawn back to Virgin?? Is there anybody that can give me a bit of insight into what it's like working for them? have only worked regional & I guess I'd like to know is it better & what are the positives (I'm well aware of the negatives & am choosing to focus on the positives!)
Any help would be great cause I need to decide today or tomorrow cause I need to enroll @ Tafe Monday.

MEL Base

Hey Sydneysider & Skywards,

Im applying for MEL base. I just did that online assessment too for Domestic crew. Very over the top. I cant imagine you would have to get 100% on that one. How long ago did you apply?

Does anyone have any news/dates regarding Melbourne assessment days or ground schools...

Me too, pretty surprised I'm certain I did terribly in that online assessment! I went with the afternoon session-have another interview in the morning so had no choice. I have run assessment centres and personally I don't think there is any difference in your chances of getting through-so pick whatever suits you best and when you think you will perform at your best. Congrats and continued good luck!

Time to fly...I applied on the 20th, and the applications closed on the 22nd and then the same as sydneysider. I'm glad you thought the assessment was crazy too-no chance I got even close to 100%, think I was just lucky! Best of luck with it.

Hi Emma, several girls I used to work with got offers from Virgin for the PER base, apparently the next ground school commences Feb 2.

I guess the questions were more weird than anything... I remember when i went for Qantas 4 years ago we had to answer about 500 questions... it was like answering the same question but asked a different way... I am much happier answering 30 questions instead.

I have been to two Virgin recruitment days. One with V australia a few years ago (got the job but turned it down for Etihad... what a mistake!!) and one with DJ in 2010. They all seem to run the same...

1. Introduction
2. Company Profiile
3. Group Activity
4. One on one interview

They are forever watching you. Some say they there might be a "candidate" in the group with you who is actually an assessor... so just make sure you are not too "relaxed"... Just be yourself but professional. If you can tell you're not youself, they can too. And just get involved in discussion as you would normally.

Good Luck!!!!

PS: if things have changed since... be sure to let us all know...

Regional flyer

Hi Regional flyer, thanks for the info. I will be trying to contact recruitment again Monday and see what's going on then, I feel as though theyve forgot me a and maybe they have. I will be gutted if I've waited 3 months nearly for this GS and they haven't even contacted me...

They will mark off everybody's names that were invited, at the one I attended they even went through the list of invitees to give us an opportunity to hand in the necessary paperwork and to briefly introduce ourselves. They'll definitely know if you weren't invited, and will ask you to leave (as with the majority of cabin crew 'recruitment days', it is exclusively invite only).

When I did mine (this was about 4 months ago so maybe they've changed it since), I received an email with a reference form to fill out, and an extra sheet that we had to provide basically the same information as the online application. They provided these on the day too, for anyone that didn't fill them out prior, so I wouldn't stress about it

Docs for interview

Hey fafi, I did mine international AD a while back as well, but I also received an email with attachments. If I were you I'd double check, even if they do have spares for you to fill in when you get there I personally think it looks pretty rubbish to not turn up with the forms ready to go - be as prepared & organised as possible! Also, there will be a list of stuff you need to bring with you - can't quite remember but something like RSA/1st Aid certs (or proof you have them booked), passport, etc.

Good luck!

Attachments

Maybe someone else attending tomorrow can confirm whether there should have been attachments??

If so,. I would also flick a reply to your confirmation email just asking for them to be re-sent and hopefully they will get back to you.

Don't panic though, on my AD there was plenty of time in the morning. If someone else can confirm that there should be attachments just arrive a bit early & explain the situation, they will have copies for you to fill in (though don't spend all your free time filling in forms - make sure you're being chatty with the other applicants as well!!!).

You'll be fine!
