Happy Temp WW

No nothing def but said it was for temp WW and she said all courses were gone for Dec and the next courses would for us would be Jan/Feb. Nothing set in stone as Im sure things can change but gives us a rough date to work too.You never know though if someone drops out of an earlier course could be sooner rather than later !!??!! X

EF course...

You fellow EF holding pool swimmers , its not happening today for sure. I guess its only Monday and like last week they called people from Tuesday I think. Lets hope its the same this week. Glad I did not stay up all day waiting and managed to sleep after my nightshift. Had the phone next to me though. Fingers crossed for tomorrow or later this week.....get us out of this misery once for good!!

Smile Lhr Ef

Hi Kikko, and all other BA holders, or wannabees,

I am currently waiting in LHR EF Holding Pool for my notification (my assessment was on the Morning of 17th May 07).

Unfortunately yes, the wait continues, and another day without a call.

It seems as if the early February courses may now be full, and we will have to wait for additional courses. Lets hope new courses are planned soon!

Good luck to you all!
Kind regards,
G-GMGH

when when?

Guys, I am really disappointed we have not been called for further February courses this week. Someone who is working on EF already recently told me that there are about 60 people waiting to be transferrred to WW. It could be they already have the 60 to train for EF so that they can move on with the transfer of existing EF cc to WW. That's one possibility. We may also still hear this week or next week as its more than 2 months ahead if they are carrying on with the 11th of Feb as the next course date. Lets hope so.

Can you start training if your references haven't been sorted out? Some people say yes, some people say no. What happens otherwise? Will you be put in the hold pool until another training commences or will they withdraw your offer?

It's worth the wait !!

At Heathrow tomorrow, course is going well and just want to say
if I'm this excited about LGW. You guys waiting for LHR are going to
have it really good. It's a Good Airline British Airways, I know it's been
a long wait for you guys. But once you get in all this anger will go !!

And the trainers are great so so nice.. Fingers and toes crossed about course dates as I have few friends still in the hold pool since MAY..

Now gotta pack for 12 days at Heathrow

PS. I'm still waiting for a ref, so the answer is yeah you can still keep your course dates etc.. just get it done before the end of your course.

EF Holding Pool

I so thought someone might have been lucky today, nevermind! I thought getting the job was going to be the hardest part but that seems like the easiest thing we had to do! 6 months is tough to be patient and i think we've all been that and more, i'm trying to be positive and not think about the fact this could all have been for nothing if we get to 12 months and expire - how rude!
Keeping fingers crossed and good luck everyone!

Lets all be patient...

Guys, I know we are all very frustrated and also tired of waiting for so long but like the Guiness ad says "all good things come for those who wait"...We have showed a lot of patience and character for over 6 months now and I think it wont be too long before the rest of us get that most important call. The positive point is I think almost or more than half of the holding pool people have got their dates and its just us now that remain. Lets not get too carried away with the worst possible outcome which is very unlikely to happen I think and lets wait that little bit more. We have proved we can do it and that holding pool does not scare us. Together we will be dry with enough towels for all.

Keep the faith

Hi all,

I consider myself very lucky to be out of the EF hold pool and finally on a training course. To be honest near the end i was thinking that it would never happen, annoyed that i got the job yet would never actually fly. But the call did come. I firmly believe that i will be in the air with all of you at some point, in which case i shall buy the first round of drinks on our first stop over! BA's manpower recruiting system is frusting to say the least, but it does seem to work in the end. My advice is don't think about the call too much and chances are your phone will ring (remember CC is the most changeable department in BA, people are always coming and going and recruitment is almost continous throughout the year).

I phoned up BA recruitment today and spoke to a lady who was very helpful. To cut a long story short, she said that they will be phoning people who are in the LHR eurofleet holding pool in January.
The wait goes on
