Though given whatís been said already, may have just been the last straw.
I saw they are now trying to hire cheap 2nd Officers through the Zenon ....

And Senior First Officers by the looks of it. They have relaxed their hours requirement as well.

Apparently people haven’t been turning up for their conversion courses recently. Maybe received a better offer (BA, J2 etc.)

Where does that lead one with regards to upgrade?
SFO/FO/SO - it's just a name for the RHS pilot with a certain number of hours behind them.

Has anyone got to the final stage interview/sim? Zenon phoned me to arrange mine but didn't give many details. Is the sim assesment on a 787 sim or another aircraft type and does anyone have any other details?

It’s on a 737 fixed base sim. All the other details have been given accurately further up in the thread.

I second this, not a Virgin employee anymore but Iím glad some of these ďThe Sun/DailymailĒ avid readers, owners of the ďtruthĒ, self righteous, unpleasant, backwards and ultracrepidarian sky-Gods are leaving.

I donít get why these little men care so much as it doesnít directly affect them. Why do you care if male crew wear make up? Whatís the point of coming here and make such comments? 737 jockey, A320_LGW etc a few who did that, I bet you were the guys your colleagues swapped trips, and the crew avoided meeting down-route because you were insufferable.I looked through recent posts you guys made and thereís quite a few rejections from the job search, wonder whyÖ

Let it go, youíre a bigot, fine, we get it. Letís steer the conversation to something constructive as we want to hear information about the airline and the process. Donít like the airline? Move on then.

Will they ask technical questions in the final stage interview and would they be more likely to be about my current type or the 787?

After a bit of thinking and having passed the assessment, I chose not to go forward and withdrew my application. Various reasons but sitting down writing out the numbers and going through a list of pros/cons, best to start the command process at Voldemort airlines. Who knows if Iíve made the right decision. Would be nice to fly the 78, visit great locations and chat up the young CC but maybe in later life. Good luck to those still in the assessment process.
