Does that mean you have to wait 12 months to reapply? ��

Hey beautiful people


Hope you guys are enjoying Gs Manymiles and Kate.

I called VA the other day and was told there would be 3 ground schools running in Melbourne in January. I'm not sure if this was just specific to the October GS this year or if it always is, but to my understanding Adelaide members also come and get put up in a nice hotel (jealous).

They said they'd email very soon about the specific dates. I'm off to the States until the 4th so praying mine isn't until at least the 5th haha.


Look forward to discussing specific GS dates when we get more info.

Lauren98 - - so sorry to hear that. But I agree to definetely keep trying. I know many people that tried numerous times before they were through.

Skyangel I'm in the same boat as you for Brisbane. I would love there to be a GS before Christmas but apparently the next one isn't until February. They had a GS in Brisbane start on 7th November but that was from the August recruitment round and my AD wasn't until 12th October. Which AD did you attend?

Hi
I have done the elevator pitch for Auckland base in October and received confirmation of progression to a recruitment day. I see applications close 24th. Does anyone have any idea of how long it takes to get to interview stage? Also Whether if successful I would be in the Janyary ground school or maybe have to wait for a later one?

Also could anyone please share what happens on the assessme Day and what I'd need to study for the online assessment? Sorry so many questions it's all new to me ��

AD days start with a presentation about Virgin, then go to group activities, then one on ones. A couple of days later you get an email saying if you go onto online testing or not then you have 72hours to complete it, after you have completed it (it's a psychometric test so you can't study for it) they let you know if you are onto references or not. My ref checks took 6 weeks but I know of others that have taken 4. Then you get a medical and final review then an offer. If there are no gs scheduled you get put in a talent pool till one is avail. If you go back through this forum there is a wealth of info on all different experiences.

Hi Sky, I was in the afternoon session that day too. I'm in the talent pool. Once They have a gs date I just need to do the medical. If I pass that, which I would hope. I need to also get my rsa, first aid and extend my passport because it no longer has 6 months.

Flytofreedom,

On AD you will go in and they will give you a brief quiz on VA. From there they do background info on the company as well as an insight to pay etc...

You will then introduce yourself to the group and recruiters and from there do the Group Assessment. Our question was "You have had an emergency landing and are unaware of your surroundings or of any injuries, list only 5 items that you would take and why?"

From there you have a break and from there you do one-on-one interviews.

I wish you the best of luck.

Virgin seem to be doing a lot of hiring, anyone know why? Is there high crew turnover, or are they expanding?
