Hi Kelly23c

As far as I'm aware you can bid for the types of trip you want to have (eg 3 days, 5 days etc) - I believe you can bid for there & backs only or short trips if you prefer (please correct me if I'm wrong) although it's not guaranteed.

Good luck!

Hi Maisel,

First of all good luck for the AD tomorrow! Just relax and be yourself and try to enjoy it (easier said than done I know lol!)

For the role play part, you'll be taken through to a room with an assessor. It's a one on one role play based on customer service. You'll be given a sheet with instructions on, and the assessor will leave the room for a few minutes to let you read through and memorise the instructions. When they come back, you'll turn the sheet over and start the role play. They play a member of the public and you're the customer service person based on the instruction card. It lasts about 5 minutes.

It can be nerve wracking but they give you all of the info you need to get through it

Best of luck! Hope it goes well

Hi Kelly

Yeah you bid for trips and it's not guaranteed but on average you get around 60%. If you bid for all short haul and night stops you'll get the majority of them at least. You can always request days off too and again these aren't guaranteed. Good luck at your AD and I'm sure it will work out for you flying and being a Mum

Hi

Can anyone tell me how long it took to get there start date when Procius sent email to BA to commence stage 2 of the referencing process? Procius sent off my email to BA for a start date literally just after Easter. It's been over 2 weeks just wanted to know if this is the norm. Also are BA okay with changing your start date by a few weeks?

Thanks for any help in advance really appreciate it.

References can take a while depending on the company and how cooperative they are. I would say the best thing to do is that you personally chase up your referees to speed up the process. Having worked in referencing before I would say it would be the best thing for you to do. It can take a while. Should your references take longer than expected to return, BA may postpone your start date and push it back. However, if there are no more start dates for a while (which I doubt it) they may place you in a holding pool.
