Thx, smell the coffe. I totally agree. How do these ppl go shopping? Do they never count their change?
I think people fail the test just because of nervousness.
And what should I do about the English test? It's not my first language. But failing it, would just mean I have to practise more.

Good luck!

Hi guys!

I take it there's still a 5'2" height restriction with Virgin? I'd love to apply, but as I'm just under 5ft, I feel I'd be wasting my time! It's the only thing holding me back, as I feel I fit their other requirements! Are they really strict on the height thing at the moment??

Cheers! xxx

Yes you get measured at the interview. Its really important that you meet the heights as the safety equipment is high and for safety reasons. I can't think of an airline without the height requirements

Thumbs up Well done!

Well done Sumeya!!! I have been following your posts as I posted to you a while back re. where to stay when attending your interview. I was interviewed on 4th Jan and got the job as Inflight Beauty Therapist, so we could be on some flights together later this year!!!

Virgin likes to keep people guessing, by varying there recruitment processes, and waiting times.

Three weeks after I applied, I had a phone interview. Then two weeks later, I was invited to attend the interview.

It tooks 5 days to find out after the interview.

Good luck to all...!!!

Questions on the phone interview are basic examples of dealing with customers and problems and teamwork.

Hi Bexter...in regards to training i may be wrong but i was told that you can't push the training date back. You have to tell them at your interview if you can't make the training date they tell you at the beginning of your interview, which is what i had to do.
Once your contract has been issued with your start date you can't change it.
First flight is generally 2 days after your wings ceremony which is when your training finishes. My friend started on the 8th jan and they have already got their rosters for Feb and most of them have flights 2 days after wings.

when you go for your assesment they tell you at the beginning of the day what date your training will start. Then when you have your 2-1 interview, tell them then that you can't make that date for whatever reason and they'l tell you the other dates that courses are starting. Thats what i did.
At the moment for the time being i think there are courses starting every week or every couple of weeks.

hi i have an iterview with virgin on the 31st Jan, can't believe it!! really nervous about the day, anyone else have an interview on this day?

i really want to work for them, currently i work for easyjet and would love the travel you get with virgin, everytime i do a flight i just really want to get off the plane and explore, bit difficult with 20 min turnarounds lol

just so hope i get it! i have been doing loads of research on the company, so i can be as prepared as possible!
