AD

Hi all, sounds like eveyone is moving along quite well at the moment!

I got my invitation to an ADL assessment day today! SO EXCITED to get to the next step, will anybody else be attending the morning ADL assessment day next month? I applied during the April opening.

From What I've read previously. It about one or two days. I'm sure you'll hear Monday/Tuesday 😀👍🏻

Thanks Mooky! I'm so impatient, starting to worry I didn't pass the medical 😱
Here's hoping I hear something tomorrow 😊

Hope that helps.

[2QUOTE=francescamaria;9759845]Hello! I had my interview for Adelaide in August 2016 and am still waiting in the talent pool ... Next up is a medical but I haven't been asked to do that yet. Is anyone else in this position, or has anyone progressed to ground school from that interview? This process has been very slow for me... I applied in march 2015!

Hi everyone. I applied for Sydney short haul last week. Originally the job ad said applications close on Sunday 29 however they've readvertised for Sydney and Perth (closing end of June). Anyone know what's going on? Do you think they didn't receive enough applications or they've pushed back the ADs? Thanks all and good luck to those progressing!!

Hi and congrats on applying!!

I applied back in Feb and the same thing happened-reposted the listing with another month. I think it's because there wasn't enough applicants.
Based on my timeline, you may have a bit of a wait, but if they have enough applicants they may push through quite quickly.
Good luck and enjoy the journey!

Thanks so much Caitlin! It seems strange they wouldn't have enough applicants. I hope you hear something very soon!

Hi HDSD, I had the same thing happen with ADL (twice in fact, it was double readvertised this month). I applied in April and received an invite to an AD 3 weeks after (while the other ads were still up) so hopefully when an AD SYD date is set you will be the first invited! Good luck!

Firstly, the very idea of FUN FACT means that you can say any quirky thing that you may feel like. It's just an ice breaker and you are not going to directly prohibited from progressing based on your fun fact.

During my AD there we're all sorts of things, Junior sporting achievements, Peoples hobbies, previous jobs held etc.

Nope. I didn't hear anything for about a month and a half (so approx 2 weeks after the 2nd round close date). That was just saying we want to see you at an AD but there isn't one scheduled. Then about a month after that, got an email saying the AD's are the flowing week. I was able to go, and everything since then has been quite quick!

Thank you! Does everyone get to do the elevator pitch or do they read the applications first? Sorry for all the questions!

Virgin Australia Perth talent pool

Hi everyone!
Had my Perth assesment day Mid April and have progressed to the talent pool awaiting a medical and GS dates..
Has anyone else heard anything in regards to GS Dates in Perth ?! I know there one July 4th but I think it's full and I've missed out

Do they contact you via email for a medical or phone call with an unknown number?!

TIA x
