They just emailed me, I haven't emailed at all besides giving them any documentation they required. The wait it killing me

Hi all,

Sorry if this has already been asked, but I was just wondering if anyone can give me a heads up on the sort of questions they ask at the assessment day?
I have mine on Tuesday for Syd. domestic and short haul base and I am so nervous about it! I never do well in group interviews but am usually always fine in one on ones, so a little worried about it!

Swimming Test

Can anyone who has done the Swimming Test (either in SYD or elsewhere) or knows of anyone who has done it, tell us where exactly it is undertaken? Do you have to book in with a pool lifeguard in your own time who will assess you, or do you do it at the Virgin training pool all together with other applicants and they tick you off the list?

Hi
They send you a form and you contact your local pool and have the lifeguard sign off that you can do what is required of you. Then you upload it to Virgin. 😀

Reference Check stage reached after AD in SYD

Hello everyone. I went to the AD in SYD on 9th May. I received an invitation on 13th May to do the Online Comprehension Test, which was completed on the morning of 15th May. I received notification that I was through to Reference Check stage later on that day.

Is anyone else in the same situation as myself?

Can anyone shed any light on whether the Swimming Test follows immediately after Reference Check stage, and if so, does that meanTalent Pool comes next?

I'm at the same stage for Melbs base, my assessment day was the 3rd April, shortly after did the online test, and then received the email saying they would be doing reference checks shortly. My references haven't been contacted yet, over a month since I got the reference check email. So unfortunately it can be a bit of a wait until water test/medical etc. Judging by other timelines on the forum it's not unusual for the reference check process to take 1 to 2 months. Hope this helps

Reference Checks - Melbs

Yay! An email was sent to my referee yesterday; so hopefully the next Ground School isn't too far away. That was nearly a month after receiving the email that I had progressed to the reference check stage. Any movement from anyone else's progression?

Update

Hi guys
Just wanted to let you all know of an email I received yesterday as I know a lot of people are wondering about timeframes and start dates. It's not great news but news
FYI - I went into the talent pool in feb and I'm melbourne based

We wish to confirm that your application remains on our talent pool pending medical check and confirmation of a training school start date.

At present we do not have any confirmed training schools, and we are not in a position to provide further indication of potential start dates at this time. As you were advised at the Recruitment Day, our training schools are scheduled around the needs of the business.

Hi Mayha!
Sh a shame you couldn't make it! I received my email for online testing about a week later, then references two days after that. They had 5 days to complete (Friday just gone) and then got my email for swim comp. on Saturday morning.

I completed that and uploaded it this morning, and then got the golden call for GS this afternoon with a start date of 4th July!!! I've already booked my medical lol cannot wait to start!

Keep me updated on how you go hopefully I'll see you in the sky soon!

Medical

Hi all,
Just completed my medical. Super easy but takes a while.
Started with the nurse who took height, weight, near and far sight test, colour vision panels, hearing test and BP. Then did the alcohol breath test and urine drug test.
Next saw the doctor who went through my history forms, reviewed sight and hearing tests and BP, then checked my balance, field vision, ROM etc. super easy
Should have results back by this afternoon, hopefully that means my contract will come through straight away and I can officially resign from my current job!

Anyone else starting GS in Melbourne on the 27th of July??

Also for those who were wondering about BNE base, I spoke to a lady the other day when they offered me MEL to see if there were any BNE bases, and she said that at the moment they don't have anything (forget the reason, sorry) but maybe in the next 6-12 months.
Hope that helps....

How exciting for you! When did you receive the call. My references have just been checked for Melbourne Base; but I have a feeling I won't be included in this Ground School as by the sounds they would have already made contact! My Assesment Day was early April. Congrats
