Well I'm also on the 19th... but it seems everyone from my interview day is starting on the 26th... hope to meet you all soon though! Has everyone already had their uniform fittings? What do they give to you? This is going to be so much fun!!! References aren't being that easy though!

Nope i need to book my uniform fitting....im way excited about that! Listen to us all....we all sound like were on prozac! lol! Did i see someone say (that sounds weird!) that you can get your uniform fitting done at heathrow if you live closer to there? That would be fab as im dropping my parents off there to fly to dubai on virgin in a few weeks!

Also very excited.....!!

A month today - so excited!! Roll on 26th March!!

I have booked my uniform fitting - something else im veryveryvery excited about! I am going Gatwick for mine but only because thats fairly easy for me!

I havent heard anything from the reference people yet - does that indicate that everyone is going ok - im slightly scared as i leave work in 2 weeks ((not that im counting the days!!)) It still doesnt quite seem real!!

Will anyone else be commuting? i dont live too far away but am getting slightly worried about how long the drive may take in the mornings!!

4 Weeks and Counting!!

Hiya!

I've booked mine too, can't wait!! Lol Jade you're totally right, we all sound CRAZED lol!! There's a thread on here somewhere about all the gear we get GTCrew, it sounds awesome!!! I'll try to hunt it out! Basically you get EVERYTHING except the hard suitcase apparently (you can buy it in the staff shop they said)...stuff like 2 full suits, 4 shirts, 1 outer coat etc - so excited, it's such a gorgeous uniform!

I've not heard anything back about my references, or about my medical, or anything. I'm such a worrier, just totally paranoid that something will go wrong and they'll take my dream job away from me How long does it take them to get in contact again?

Now all I gotta do is the Disclosure thing and that's me! Hehe look at us all counting down the days

ps Jade - it was EKBird who mentioned the Heathrow fittings

"As far as your uniform fitting is concerned, if any of you are closer to Heathrow than Gatwick, you can have your uniform fitting at Heathrow. The uniform stores number for Heathrow is 02083845307."

GTCrew - finally found that thread lol, it's from last year but hopefully still in date. It was a girl on here that mentioned it, Millymoo.

"Yeah the uniform fitting is fun, but it doesnt take too long. They said ill be getting:

2 suits
4 shirts
2 pairs of shoes (1 high pair and some flats)
2 scarfs
1 belt
1 winter jacket
1 cardigan
2 aprons (at least i think it was 2!)
1 handbag
1 pair of earings
1 money bag (and a little pouch that you have to keep on your belt at all times)
1 pair of gloves
1 travel bag (for taking on the plane)"


Sounds fab!!

Thanks Virgin_girlie, yep, it was me . I called the Uniform Stores at Gatwick and they said that if we are closer to Heathrow then we are more than welcome to go there.
