Hi again.
I've got another question.
I don't have the best eye vision. Is it allowed to wear glasses/contacts
or is it required to have a perfect vision to be a flight attendant?

Feedback from airline interviews?

Hi all,

I just found out today that I was unsuccessful at my assessment for British Airways. I received what I assume is a standard rejection email which contained the following...

"Due to the high volume of applications we are unable to offer feedback.

We would value your feedback on our recruitment process. Please click on the link below to complete our online feedback questionnaire which should take no more than 5 minutes"

To be honest my immediate thought was 'well you can get lost if you think I'm going to spend my valuable 5 minutes giving you feedback if you can't be ad to give me 5 minutes of your time'.

But what I'd really like to know is what other airlines recruitment policies are regarding giving feedback. Because I am definately planning on applying to other airlines, but if I keep being rejected at this stage and receive no feedback as to why, I'm wondering if its worth me possibly wasting my time?

All info gratefully received!

Airlines receive thousands upon thousands of applications and to give feedback would be very costly and time consuming. They also like to have applicants that something that is natural not coached and giving feedback could ultimately do that. No airline I have heard of or come accross gives feedback.

Providing the airline with feedback on their recruitment process could improve a lot for the applicants and what they go through in waiting for the yes or no. I suggest giving them feedback and if you feel you have been hard done by or if there was anything they could improve on that would help you be more successful in the future then offer it to them. eg you may have felt uncomfortable with the size of the groups during the group sessions etc

Good luck!

Actually I've never met any business that will tell you why they are not giving you a job. In a way it's probably a good idea as most people would be more offended than assisted by the reasons offered. Not to mention opening the doorway to unsuccessful applicants coming back and arguing against the feedback offered.

Most of the time if I think back on the interview I do know where I was weak or possibily not suitable for that particular company. And I also firmly believe that when company rejects you they are doing you a favour. Most often it's because your personality or preferred working style will not be a good fit for their company culture. You would be unhappy there.

You may not want to hear that or even agree with it when you have been rejected for what appeared to be your dream job. But trust the people that work there, they understand the company from a perspective you don't and do know what type of people will be happy there.

I've often found myself in surprise positions with company's I would never have thought of working for. And almost without exception it's been a better fit for me than the job I initally thought I wanted.

Kepp going because BA just may not be a good match for you. It's almost certain there's a better employer who'll love working for more out there.

It took me two goes and then a two year wait in a holding pool before I started with BA. Try again in a year, it is worth it. Perhaps try getting into another airline in the meantime, that's what I did.

I have to admit though, it's pretty cheeky of them to ask for feedback after rejecting you. I would suggest you fill it out constructively. The fact that you've bothered to help them out, even after rejection will show you are a reasonable person, it should stay on your file if you keep the same email for your next application. It could make a difference for next time.

I believe that you are able to submit your request in writing to the company, and request a copy of any personal data they hold on you. The company is entitled to collect an administration fee from you, but has to give you the information.

Having said that, if you went through this ordeal, you would get your feedback, but you would also get majorly black listed!!!

There are no airlines which provide feedback to applicants.

Not entirely true! At my airline, we would give feedback to final round applicants who didnt make it. Usually it was very general feedback, but it was always very constructive. Mind you, as I said, we would only do this with final round applicants - Id hate to see it used for the inital cull!!

Yeah I heard that all UK companies are legally obliged to make available any any info/ notes they hold about you if you put your request in writing. But as has previousely been mentionned, this would probably blacklist you with the company concerned, so only take this option if you definitely don't want to re-apply with them in the future.

Good luck Anne with your future applications. A high proportion of people flying as crew have had unsuccessful applications in the past so don't give up.
