No one I know has received an attatchment email. Nor I. I received an email today with a confirmation of tomorrow, but nothing attatched. I would not worry about it. If they wanted people to have it and have things printed, they would have sent it by now, as it seems no one has it.

They will have everything organised tomorrow.
Im not going to worry and stress about it. I have all documentation anyway ready to take.

Good luck all.

Crazily enough I just got invited to the Melbourne AD on Wednesday. This will be my 4th AD (Third in 2 weeks) I have the MAM tomorrow which I declined last week but the re issued my invite which surprises me.
Virgin would be fantastic to work for however, so I will give it a shot.

If I don't receive an email tomorrow with my attachments, I guess I'll contact them, but I have ample copies of my docs from all the other AD's I have attended.

Hi Rochelle,

Congrats on the AD. I have received my invite for Wednesday too. It looks like things are moving quite quickly....

It certainly does, I wonder how many they have invited did you select the morning or afternoon time slot?

I'm guessing there is probably 40 per allocated time? (that seems to be the going number amongst other AD's)

Time To Fly, is this your first AD?

Are your AD for international or domestic? I wonder how many intl. positions there are?

I've just gone for Domestic SydneySider88.

I think it would be fun to possibly have a few over nighters here and there, see a bit more of Oz even if it is only the terminals and see how I go.
I guess with these companies opportunities arise in the future.

You went for domestic also didn't you?

I will be there in the morning. 40 seems like alot of people. The last DJ recruitment session I went there was probably only 20... if that.

SYD sider... Domestic for me too... Ultra long haul flights are long gone for me...

Rochelle... When did you say you could start? How much notice do you have to give?

It is so interesting - since I applied for Virgin beginning of November last year, I have already managed to get through the recruitment processes with TWO other airlines.... yet with Virgin have heard absolutely nothing. Bit frustrating......if the others can do it why can't they haha I have no idea whether I should just write up a new application or keep floating in the system!

Hope89 I have bee through Jetstar and Tiger and had two invites to MAM and received my invitation to Virgin AD also. It all moves pretty quickly once they get to your aplication with all of them I have found (Virgin no different)

Heading to MAM today, will be interesting to compare all 4 AD's after tomorrow!

Waiting

Waiting for the third time to see if i get throught the initial application stage. It is so frustrating this waiting.
It is so hard to have to keep applying as every other industry feild that I have applied for I got the job - so I guess I am not that fabulous, just to show that there are so many applications and they can pick and choose who they want. Hopefully this time will be the winner as I completely pulled apart my CV and covering letter and the answers on the application page.
Hopefully soon I will hear some good news.

Oh I have no doubt that once the ball gets rolling it all comes together quite quickly. But what I mean is that other people on here from different bases have managed to put through 2 more applications and been knocked back for both whereas I still haven't heard a thing from my very first one! I'm beginning to think I've been lost or something. But Good luck Rochelle - you obviously have what it takes! And Marly you can do it

Sydney International

How did you guys go at the Sydney AD today? Did the recruiters give any hint of when a ground school might be?

A friend of mine said Alliance and Skywest are wet leasing to DJ due to increased demand.

Just Completed the MEL AD. It was a really good morning actually. The day goes a little like this:

1. Complete and hand in paperwork
2. Introduction and Information
3. PA speaking activity (on board PA)
4. Individual problem solving activity (goes for 2 mins max)
5. Break for 20 mins while the assessors decide who goes through
6. Those who remain have a 1 on 1 interview (goes for maybe 15 mins)

They have said we should hear within 2 weeks if we get through to the next stage. Fingers crossed. Ground Schools will be for Feb & March by the looks of things.
