I haven't swam since school (almost 10 years ) and was a bit nervous but it ended up being fine. You can basically get to the end any way you like and are wearing swimwear, not clothes and shoes like some of them. Treading water was ok as long as you just relax

Looking ahead if I am successful, I am wondering if anyone else is moving to Sydney for ground school? I need a flat mate or two. Also looking at suburbs that might be suitable within 2 hours from the airport for on call days. Is anyone else where I'm at? I am hoping if I have gotten this far I essentially should have the job, assuming I pass the medical and ground school, does anyone know if that's right? Feeling a bit in the dark 😂
Congratulations!! I think we've met. 😊 I had my interview on the same day. I'm the half Asian brunette girl from Brisbane. I've been looking on gumtree for a place to live that's reletively close to the trainning centre. But just for a short-term. I've heard that a lot of cabin crew should have flateshares posted on a noticeboard somewhere?

Oh hey! I have been feeling like I'm just chillin here with my Sydney base status and no friends.
That sounds good, I will try to stalk that out. I called head office today and they said there won't be a ground school scheduled before October at least so that is an easier time frame to work with. You're from Brisbane but relocating to Sydney right? Or are you meaning just for ground school?

Hi guys,

congrats on everyone that has successfully going through recruitment in the past few months! i applied in 2015 and didnt hear back about an open day for a very long time and by then i had gotten a job already but have been thinking about it ever since so have reapplied for PER base - domestic and short haul international for 2018.

i am hoping they have an open day soon but if its for 2018 probably not likely. a friend who works for VA said they just put through 3 GS! so might not need anyone right now but i am making sure i am prepped and ready! that video app was a shock! i hope i passed that atleast

Yesss I am, I've only been in the talent pool for a few weeks but feels like such a long wait 😩 Everything before went very quickly, from my application date to talent pool was only about 5 weeks, so hopefully all goes well and quickly for you! 😀

Well this sucks. I emailed to ask about the assessment day and I got a reply saying they weren't progressing my application further. Is this because I emailed about the assessment day?! I can't reapply for 12 months they said.

I've been invited to a assessment day before and had to decline as I couldn't get time off work! WTF

Ohhh no, that's not good...don't know why, but you should re apply when you can if it's something you really want!

Yes I really really do! Applied 2015 - moved to a new campaign, 2016 - invite to next recruitment day (never got invited), 17 - not progressing my application... don't know if I can wait 12 months though. I'd love to work for Virgin but might have to explore other avenues in the meantime!

I hope you get out of the talent pool soon and start GS! Waiting sucks

Ground school

Does anyone know if you can get an invite to, say, Melbourne ground school if you're Sydney talent pool? Like if Melbourne is running earlier?

I think you can only do the ground school for your base unless you move there
