Yes you will need to put that in as HAL will cross refernce previous applications. That said you should not need to worry about this as it is purely a requirement.

it is done for me, fingers crossed.

the way it goes is: waiting, group exercise, more waiting, presentation/interview depending on your group and that's it for the day.

the group exercise is really not all that I reckon the hardest part was the 2-2-1

good luck to everyone!!!

Assessment

When I had mine some years ago ( May 2007) I found the 2 to 1 more relaxing as its only between you and them. You are not put under any pressure by anyone except by the interviewers. I know the questions can be drilling but the same thing is being asked to everyone. If you are well prepared its not hard at all. But with the group exercise, other than the task itself ( does not matter if you get it right or wrong ) you have to deal with other people who you have never met before and given a task which can be anything. Thats where a lot of the real you can be observed and how you communicate with others etc. So theres a bit more pressure there. Thats my opinion.

Agreed. The personal interview was intense indeed and they kept asking you a lot of questions. The two ladies were so sweet and fantastic. They made me feel at ease and very relaxed from the very first moment I met them. As Philou says, if you are well prepared you have nothing to worry about.

The group exercise isn't very difficult. I second his or her's motion again. It's to see how you interact with people you have never met before. There are no wrong or right answers. Be polite. Do not interupt. Address everyone when speaking and try to ignore the observers!

In general, I had a fantastic day!

assessment

hi all...

Had my interview yesterday... I think it went ok... not perfect but you never know whether you say the right things... I forgot to mention one person when I was asked about the people in my group... I remembered four out of five though.... just the waiting game now... i think i prefered the interview although it was more intense than the group session. Good luck to everyone who hasnt had there day yet... and fingers crossed for those that have....

Red face LGWSF holdpool

hi every1

sorry to completely change the subject, but i was just wondering if there is anyone else who had an interview for LGWSF in september like myself and then couldnt take the november course dates and thus went back into a holdpool. i have phoned BA a few times now and each time they say they dont have any information, zero, zip on any future possible training courses for LGWSF.
Im desperate for them to phone me with a training course date for jan/feb,...i realise there probably wont be any for dec as they'll be doing the training courses for LHR WW temps.
anyone else in this situation?? also if anyone at BA knows any more info i would really appreciate any insight you could give me.

many thanks!

You should of taken the course, you must of thought when you applied for BA that you would have to put your life on hold etc..

I did and I'm happy to be starting in November, it's your career at the end of the day.

Other Airlines

Hiya,

Question for anybody thats got a clue!

A friend of mine applied to an airline and during the interview she was asked if she had applied to any other airlines ( they told her it wasnt a trick question) she got kinda nervous and said no although she had applied to other airlines. Does anybody know if they can actually check this? i mean can they or would they cal up other airlines and ask?

Cheers!

Good question!

I doubt they will call every single airline to ask them. The recruiters are probably very professional at this and would see straight aiway whether you are telling the truth!

Put i thought its illegal for them to call other airlines as its breach of privacy for airlines to give out that kinda info...plus why would they check?

I can't comment whether it's illegal but I doubt very much they will telephone each and every airline to check whether the applicants have also applied to them.

I don't think your friend has anything to worry about!

Yes, InTheZone, lovethesky was being sarcastic.

No airline would have to time or resources to call other airlines. They also know it is a data protection requirement to keep applications strictly confidential. This would also apply if an airline was to call them.

Saying that, it is pretty easy to work out who is applying for what just by looking at these forums. The question is whether a recruiter would bother to look on here and if so, would that go against the actual applicant.
