Hey all,

I'm just getting involved in the wild wonderful world of Airlines. VA is my top choice! I just applied to the SFO GS Team member position in hopes of getting involved with the company and then transferring to a FA position when they start hiring again... Is this a good move?

I was there at that interview, and found out they started checking my references and doing the back ground check but I havent heard anything since...does anyone know when they are supposed to be making the phone calls?

Same Here. Haven't heard anything yet. Hopefully we hear something this week. They said they wanted us in training at the beginning of March, so time is money.

My Daughter was drug tested for VX last week. She is excited about the possibility of a phone call this week! Good luck to you all. I know how competitive that it is!

Was it for the inflight team member position? Did she interview at the group interviews on 2/1?

DO NOT QUIT YOUR JOB BEFORE READING ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY VA IS LOSING A DAY .........

So, if a person is currently stuck in a job that is menial and mundane, they should stay there and give up an opportunity to fly for VA?
I don't think so. My son is a pilot for a large regional airline that was losing money for years then taken over and sold to another large air carrier. He now has some decent seniority and the legacy airlines are looking at him now. The nature of this business is very uncertain but you never know which way it will go. I think that unless another 9/11 occurs, the airline industry will eventually grow.
The airlines need some new, fresh faces. I have flown on several airlines recently and the flight attendants were are old and burned out. You people, the aspiring F/A's, can add to the value of your airline by bringing a fresh new attitude to the industry. After all, the F/A is the airline representative not the pilots! Yes, I know VA is currently losing money, but I encourage you all to do what you want in life. Enjoy the ride! I will keep all of you posted if my daughter hears anything!

Ahahahahhahahahahahahahha probably never. All of the people who were promised to be "only on reserve for 3 months or so" are all still on reserve. Some have now been on reserve over a year. They never fly and make no money. My friend works there and hates it, she has been trying to get on with another airline. A ton of people have been quitting the past few months and going to real airlines like delta or united or jetblue. Virgin will go under in a couple of years anyway. It would be the dumbest decision of your life to go there now!

Good luck to all who apply. My daughter was selected in the last hiring and loves her job! Make sure if you do consider the position, you will need to relocate if you do not live in the base city. No way you can commute with a 2 hour call out. Also the pay is very low the first year so don't expect much in the money department. Last hiring, March 2013, 2500 applied, 34 were selected and 30 made it through training. Several ITM candidates already worked for the company. Follow your dreams and your heart, but make sure you are ready for the life changes that will take place if you are hired. Virgin America is a great company!

A friend told me that you have to pay your own way to the interview, is that true?

Yes, I paid for my own flight from
Boston to LA for the interview. However, once you have the job they will take care of transportation from that point forward. It was definitely a risk for me to buy that ticket and fly myself out here, but I'm so glad I did!

My daughter flew them from Dallas to San Fran last year and she said they are the coolest airline! Do you enjoy flying for them?

I met the young lady from Boston. She went through training with my daughter. She and my daughter are exactly what Virgin America are looking for.

I'm doing well, Thank you. This was my observation at the graduation. Very well spoken, immaculate grooming, Friendly, ability to converse with a person he/she had never met, I was impressed by the diversity of people they chose. But the main thing was that they seemed to have that common "sparkle" in the eyes. This was my opinion and observation only. Good luck to all of you out there!

Do they hire former f/a's and those that are in their 50's?

I have a question to anyone out there. I applied for this position back in January I believe, and never heard anything back. I re-applied again this time, and when the assessment popped up, it would not let me take it again, it had said I already completed it. Any information about this?! please help! Thank you!
