Hi Guys,

i got a job with BA, applied for LGW, unfortunately i got an e-mail a week ago from Recruitment stating that there were no more courses at LGW, they gave us a choice to transfer to EF LHR which i did, (hope i made the right choice) so i am just looking forward to getting my starting date.

I have never worked for an airline before, quite a few people have said that the training is very hard, could some of you tell me what exacly the training entails?

Thanks a lot

BA Training Courses

The training at BA is very good, the trainers are very professional, relaxed and patient. Also BA have excellent training facilities....,so you should not find it too difficult to do the training.....,especially as you have the motivation that several weeks down the track, you'll be 'spreading your wings' and travelling Europe and getting pretty well paid for it.

Working here is not always all a bed of roses, no large company is..., but I CAN tell you that BA is by far the best airline I have worked for (out of 5) and you will more than likely love the work and the opportunities to move fleets, progress etc....I love it still and I've been with them for 13 years!

Best of luck with your course and welcome!!

Hi
Capability matrix sounds the same as what we have at my current workplace, we call it a skills matrix, or sometimes a competency matrix. It has a list of skills required for the job, and at interview the interviewer scores you from say 1-5 on how you match the skills required. Then at the end all your scores are added up and compared against other candidates. Its meant to be a fair way of assessing people. Its used at my work for shortlisting and during interviews. Hope this helps.

Hi capricorn1

What you said is most probably true, but I do not believe BA compares the skills of one candidate with the skills of another. If you reach the level that's required, you're in.

I would guess they have started looking at your application against the matrix. I haven't got it on my application yet, it looks the same as when I submitted it. I hope we will hear tomorrow, I'm getting impatient!

There seems to be some response on the lack of transfers from SFG to LHR.

FOr those of you who have expressed your disdain at this, here is a little ditty of which you may now be aware....

As many of you are by now aware, British Airways are recruiting internally and externally in to EF LHR.

BASSA believes that YOU should have been offered an opportunity for some of you to have the ability to transfer to this base if you so wished, within the opportunities and choice framework that has been agreed by BOTH BASSA and British Airways.

As BA and BASSA have had NO meetings on manpower moves since November 06 (see BASSA news article BA and BASSA meetings), this appears a classic “smash and grab” situation, where some of the managers are blatantly ignoring the agreement whilst no meetings are held.

There seems to be a few managers within BA, who are still hell bent on confrontation, despite both sides agreed approach to have better working relationships.

We have asked to have an emergency manpower meeting, as the ballot has now closed and cannot be used as a convenient obstruction to hold talks.

We will, as ever, keep you fully informed via BASSA news.

I have chosen to post this here as it is also posted on other non-union(BA) forums.

One question for the crew member at LGW with the forum name SX-------?

You claim to have worked at SFG for 3 years in several of your threads. Can you please clarify HOW you managed to work at SFG before it was even setup(It will only be 1 year old in October 2007). It has had me confused for quite sometime. My understanding is that you may have been Gatwick based at EOG prior to SFG being started am I wrong in my assumption?
