#2  April/May 2018 applicants  Posted 24/04/2018 at 16:24
Hey everyone!

I thought that it would be cool to set up a thread for those of us who are applying between 16th April - 31st May. I was thinking that we could keep each other updated on our progress etc...


I applied on 17th April


From what I can gather, I think that Virgin usually take 4-6 weeks to contact us after we submit our applications. Hopefully, this means that we will hear back from them towards the end of next month!

I applied on the 18th and found out on the 23rd that I am not getting a Video Interview and to reapply in 6 months. I am a bit confused as I have 7 years experience working as Cabin Crew and my application was great I thought

Hey
I'm really sorry to hear that you didn't get a video interview.
From what I understand I think virgin use a computer programme to read applications and pick out keywords. Maybe look at the questions they asked. Did you go up to the word limit? Look at the examples you gave.
I'm truely gutted for you.
Time to fly! ✈️

I'm so sorry @jeniszen, I'm really disappointed for you. I don't understand how you could have seven years relevant experience and yet they wouldn't offer you a video interview? That's really odd..

Don't give up hope though! Perhaps research some keywords, tweak the wording of your CV/answers, and apply again in six months time!

I applied last Tuesday, got the video invite on Thursday and had an email confirming I’m through to the assessment day and I’ve booked the 23rd May! Can’t believe how fast they’ve been with the process this time

Hi everyone,

Firstly, best of luck to you all!

I applied Sunday, nothing yet but fingers crossed.

I started with another airline about 3/4 years ago and then left but felt the unmistakable pull to return to the skies! I've been waiting for Virgin recruitment to open up again for a while now, good to hear that things are progressing quickly, I'm so impatient

I know I love Virgin Atlantic too I know everything about it and am super passionate about the brand!! I didn't realise it was a computer... I stuck to the 300 words so maybe it was too short and I should have just gone way over. And yes I got invited to a BA assessment day next week and I am honestly not sure how I feel about it, I just didn't have BA in my mind at all.

I applied on 18th and got invite to video interview on 20th, I haven’t got round to doing it yet but they are working so much quicker than last year. It was a good 6 weeks after the initial application before I got invited to do the video interview and then another 6 weeks roughly before I got invited to AD.
Fingers crossed for everyone!! x
