Did anyone attend the group interview for LAX this past Wednesday? If so, have you heard back from VX? I was wondering if anyone knew how long it would take for them to get back to us or what the process was? Thanks! :)

I personally really want to be a flight attendant for them but i cannot move to SF. soo sad... so i applied for airport team member instead! Have you guys heard anything from them? how long does it usually take for them to call you back.

Nice to meet you all!

My experience with Virgin is that they like to have a group of qualified applicants on hold because they are expanding rapidly (ordered 50 more jets over the next 4 years!!) and it takes a LOT of ppl to get an airport up and running. So, I think that unfortunately there is no way to *know* when you will be hired! I applied online then 6 months later I was given the assessment right before the group interview. Within 1 week of the interview my background was checked and I was asked to take the drug test. Then they decided I was going to start the next month (instead of with the training class at the end of that month). So it really just depends upon their hiring needs at the moment!
The good news is they ARE hiring, and they will KEEP hiring for the next few years!!

Yes I was there this past Wed...Still waiting!! Asked my past employer and they haven't called yet. I'm not too worried, its only been 2 business days.

I'm trying to get this forum going strong like the Flight Attendant forum so I'm answering a question that was addressed to me over on that one.

Hi Jay,
The group interview takes the majority of the time. You break up into teams and present your information to the rest of the interviewees + managers. They are looking for you to be friendly and contribute, to speak clearly and make eye contact when you present, and to work well with your teammates. Working as a team and customer service are the 2 most important attributes they look for in a candidate.

The personal interview was about 10 minutes where 2 hiring managers sit you with individually and ask you standard q's similiar to "Tell me about a time you resolved a stressful situation at work" or "how do you handle conflicts with co-workers?" Then they ask if you have any q's for them (you should have 1 ready, this shows you care and have thought about their company) and that's it. They will email you in about 1 week if you are selected or not.

Good Luck!!

So you had a personal interview? Ours was set up in small groups with several people interviewing. That is what confused me because with past airline open houses, they would go on to a one on one interview and they didn't do that. That is what threw me off. Did anyone at the LAX session get a one-on-one? Just curious about the process...thanks!

What I found strange was: at the end of my group interview, they didn't ask us if we had anymore questions for them. usually every interview I been to always asks if we have anymore questions etc. N second, they told us that they would ask everyone at the last part of the interview (If we would prefer to work part time, or full time.)and they missed to ask that question. I'm just wondering if maybe they didn't ask or bother to ask those questions, because they deciding that they weren't going to pick anyone from my group for the job. hopefully not.. Just my thoughts

Which group were you in? We didn't get asked about FT/PT either but I was wondering if that is what they ask when they offer the job? I was wondering the same thing you did..I really hope I hear back from them.

Hi Beth, do you mind if I ask if you were in the morning or afternoon session? I was in the afternoon -- it seemed like he asked if anyone had any questons, but nobody raised their hand. Also regarding F/T or P/T -- I remember him saying that it would offered in the order that our background checks cleared. Best of luck to all!

I forgot the exact but it is $13.53 or $13.58. The BART (tram to get to the airport from SF) is $8.10 each way! So transportation for 1 day's work costs more than I make in 1 hr!

I heard that they give a $75/month transportation stipend which will help, but won't nearly cover my costs...

Oh well I'm just excited to be working for them and to find out in detail what the flying perks are!

Yes, there is a BART surcharge just for going to the airport. Its crazy. I know for sure the parking cost $75 a month for some airline employees at SFO. But i've also heard that its free for some (depending on what airline you are with). Keep us posted on what the flying perks are! And congrats to you!

I used to be based at SFO (F/A) and our parking was free but I'm not sure if that is just for crewmembers...we got an electronic pass thingy that was free for us. Bad thing is that it is kind of far from the airport and you have to wait for a shuttle, etc. I always just had someone drop me off at the bottom level where the employee security is. That was much easier than parking or riding a bus.

Hi everyone- I was in the Wednesday LAX interview. My background check is almost finished, and I received the e-mail to go take the drug test today. Including Fice, I know of two other people from the morning interview group who are at the same point- so it would seem to me that they've already begun the hiring process for the people they intend to hire.

I don't mean that to be discouraging! I just know what it's like to sit around and wait. I would strongly encourage trying again- it seems that they will continue to hire. They said in the sessions that they could only take 9 people. I'd imagine that the interview pool was around 50, and the applicant pool was much, much larger. If you were qualified enough to get an interview, there was clearly a reason.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi Fice. There is nothing there because the job posting is no longer listed. Now that we are in the hiring process, I don't think that the job site means anything.

Thanks Island Girl!

A few days after I was told via phone that I would start training April 11th I received an email from Carmela with a link to accept or decline the offer of employment. After I accepted it I didn't receive any more information. On the phone I was told I'd get more specific info about training about 2 weeks before the start date, which would be about now! If they don't call me by Friday I'll call them Monday morning.

I am here in Chicago took my drug test last week and have not received anything in the mail I did hear from VA last Thursday they needed a new number for a former employer. So I guess they are still completing background checks.
