Has anyone heard anything about SYD since the email went around about waiting on an Assessment Day date?

Hey louu, I just mentioned why I wanted to work for virgin and about having a passion for the job.

One thing, It took me the first few attempts to realise my intro was going for about 15 seconds also lol.

Just be your natural self! Good luck!!

Has anyone been rejected from Virgin after reference checks?
How long has it taken you for you to pass the reference checks?
Also, just wondering how long people on this thread have spent in the talent pool?
Thanks guys!
Hi Rose
I had to wait approxiamtely 8 weeks before i went to the swimming stage after reference checks. Its a long waiting game but worth it. Once id done swimming it was pretty smooth after that .I then went had my medical a couple of wees ago and start ground school in May i am so excited. Patiences is the key

Hi, and welcome!
I was exactly the same as you-so unsure what to say. I just said why I wanted to join Virgin, showed my enthusiasm and showed off my personality. They just want to see you and get a feel for your personality and the way you present yourself. Hope that helps

I'm the same!! No news yet, but I noticed they haven't readvertised for the Syd regional base again, so thinking we may all go the the same AD days!

Hi Jetsetter 😊. Apologies if you've already mentioned this but which base did you apply for? I'm currently in the Talent Pool for Brisbane. I've done my swimming comp but yet to do medical.

Hi TP68
I applied 2 Oct last year for Auckland base and done everything except the medical. Ive been waiting in the talent pool since before Christmas. And I know there are people before me who didnt make the Feb GS as it was full, so they will probably be in the May one. Hopefully we will all be in the May class but they do have 4 Ground schools in a year so you will be in one of them. Its so hard putting your life on hold though. A good test of patience and determination as it will be worth it in the end.

Virgin Cabin Crew Recruitment 2017

Hi,
I applied for a cabin crew position based in Melbourne on 30/03/2017. I am seeking answers to a few specific questions as well as any advice from previous experiences others may have had.
I have a personal passion for the aviation industry as my father was a pilot and I am also training to fly in my spare time (when I have the funds to pay for lesions.) Additionally I have 10 years experience in customer service mostly in management.

I applied for the position on 30/03/17, and submitted a short 30 second video the next day (after about 30 re-shoots). I am confident my resume, cover letter and video were perfectly presented for this role.

I am so excited to have a chance at this position as I have been applying for cabin crew roles as often as possible over the last few years. I attended a Qantas recruitment session last year and their process was quite fast.

Questions;
On average how long after applying online does Virgin respond with either the next stage or a decline?

Should I be concerned that despite the position application closure date was 31/03/17, that the role was relisted again on 04/03/17 with a new deadline of 30/04/17?

Where does Virgin typically hold their recruitment sessions? At a hotel/conference center? I live about an hour outside Melbourne and when I attended the Qantas recruitment session last year it was in a very awkward location.

Where and how long does the training for cabin crew roles usually run?

Does Virgin provide transport or an allowance for getting to and from the airport when a stay over is required?

Are their any other Melbourne based applicants or current Virgin employees that would be willing to communicate regarding region specific questions I have?

I would appreciate any details that anyone could provide regarding their experience, successful or not, with any Australian based cabin crew recruitment / working conditions. Happy to clarify or discuss with any/all as I am very excited and want to be as prepared as possible. I will continue sharing my experience throughout my recruitment journey for the benefit of all :-)
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Online Test

Hi all, I went to the Melbourne Assessment Day on Monday; I've just checked my Virgin Exisitng Applicant Log In and it has come up with please complete online test! Does this mean I'm through? I haven't got the email yet though; only my account seems to have updated. Has this happened to anyone else? This has made me super excited, but just want to make sure that means I'm through to the next stage? 😊

Hi jayjay88 I haven't heard anything since doing the online test, which I did find difficult and did not complete all questions so that was a worry! But I have spoken with a friend who works for VA and she said don't stress.. but I must say it's nerve racking waiting. All the best with your process and I will update with what's happening with me.
