Out of interest has anyone heard anything back from Virgin yet, with reference to their application for the First officer holding pool recruitment with a closing date of 21st March?

Is no news, good news?

Interview Day

As waddlers has stated, I also can't find any up to date information on the current interview/testing/sim ride process with Virgin.

Can anyone who has been through it recently shed any light on the process?

Many thanks

Spike

I don't know if there is a sim ride. it looks like no one is giving anything away about Virgin's recruitment process for some reason!

I put an application in back in October...

Still haven't heard anything.


How is it that BA can get 1600 applications in 5 days and still manage to send a response to everyone, even if it's a no, within 2 weeks?

It's because BA is run by people who:

A) Have a plan, and:

B) Know what they're doing.

Virgin is a shambolic disaster zone.

.... allegedly 14 pilots have just resigned off the 400 (almost certainly to go to BA), so there may be movement soon.

Hi guys,

Is there anyone who would be so kind to give a up to date sample of a 340/330/74 roster?

Cheers!

I hear that it's not just on the 400 that people are resigning either...

Way off the mark, much less from what I know

Sringbok

where is your evidence? scaremongering for the sake of it shows a malevolent streak that we could do without. I have very little evidence, at the moment, of other than usual departures from the ranks.

If anything with new routes this year recruitment (and commands) will increase.

Yeehaa!!!!

A couple of Command positions will bring the approximate waiting time down from about 18 years for current joiners, to about 17 years, 11 months and 3 weeks.

Whatever the accurate figures (never known), it is a loooong time.

It will only get worse if the bmi deal goes through without a significant slot surrender to Virgin. I can see them stagnating out of Heathrow. Perhaps they'll look more to the regions for expansion purposes in the future & subsequently command time could come down.
