If I can give you any advice then it would be this:

Really prepare your answer's for the interview stage i:e customer service questions think about when you have given excellent customer service but also when there has been bad customer service what did you do and how did the customer feel.

Also they may ask when you have had to handle conflict again what did you do and what was the outcome and it's all question's like that if it hasn't changed since I had mine.

Always turn a negative into a positive and use words like team work, valuing other's, respect and recognition they love these.

Good luck

Best of Luck to all who apply and even more luck to those of you who are successful enough to get an interview.
The process is simple, what it requires is a lot of different examples to the same type of questions. All those answers are based on your past expereiences.
Questions are based on working as part of a team and what made it good, or what made it bad?
What would you describe as good customer service and what would you describe as bad? give examples of both....
These sort of questions.
It is also best of you to get some knowledge of issues facing BA at the mo, they will probably have a question or two on your BA knowledge and this will be covered in this.
In the Group exercise you'll need to show how you work as part of a team, just be proactive and also don't forget to listen.
Don't forget to relax and try to be yourself, this is really what they are looking for.
Best of luck to you all....BA are a good company to work for. No matter where you are based, you will have a lot of fun, but be prepared to work. It's not the holiday camp that some would have you believe...those days are long gone.

Hi Japanair
Just to say my application has changed today from "no capablility matrix results found" to "capability matrix" which makes me think they've started looking at it now, probably same as yours did 2 days ago. So the process is clearly quite slow, they must have loads to get through. Just hang on in there, I'll let you know if I hear anything.

In Limbo to

HI Emboogie,

I to was offered LGW and moved to the LHR Hold Pool and no phone call today either!
My interview was on the 28th March, when was yours?

It will be a long wait over the weekend, but at least we know we aren't the only ones and have been missed off! I am just getting more worried as I have to give a lot of notice for my work and don't want to miss out on the training course because work won't let me go! oh the dilemma I so want this.

further than limbo

Hi guys

My interview was on april 10th and don't have any news yet.
Don't worry mates, we're gonna be fine, it's a serious company, we'll all get our phonecalls .
But it's nice to see that I'm not the only one in such desperation!!.

Good luck for everyone!!

Hi all,
submitted my application on 19 April & still haven't heard anything. I know people who have applied after & already have heard? Is anyone else still waiting?
Maybe I'm just being impatient but thought I would have heard one way or another-maybe they are just inundated at the moment?
Fingers crossed anyway!!

Hi teacoffee
I submitted my application on 17th April and haven't heard. I know they are booking interviews for others & I'd hoped to hear one way or another by yesterday (Fri) but didn't. I guess no news is good news at this stage, they don't seem to be responding in order of dates. Let us know if you hear anything won't you. Fingers crossed for all those waiting.

Part-time Working

Hi everyone
I know some BA crew work part-time but does anyone know anything about it, e.g. is it an automatic right that cabin crew can apply for part time, is there a waiting list, how long before you can apply? etc. etc. Any info anyone has would be really useful.
Many thanks in advance

Hi Capricorn.

The part time list reopens every two years or so. I believe it is opening up again this September and then it is a case of waiting as your seniority number within rank is called up next. I personally have been waiting almost 2 years for 75% and seriously doubt I will get it for another 6 or 7 years though!

Thanks very much for that. I had hoped that it was an easier process than that, especially with more employers offering flexible working and worklife balance, etc. I may have to rethink my application as I'd hoped I might be able to work part time at some stage. Thanks for the info.

Hi,

It all depends on which base you have been offered as the waiting list is alot longer at lhr, I know some people have just been offered part time at lgw after only been here for a year.

For all of you who are waiting for courses give recruitment a call just to see if they have any information
