None that I have found after 9 years
Way to class conscious. If you are very good at your job you have zero chance of promotion as your superiors are afraid that you are more competent than them and show them up.
Advice to Management
Stop your practise of the old boys brigade and yes men and promote people who actually do want to make the company better. Get rid of your ridiculous class structure system and accept people for who they are. When promoting people choose them on merit and not preconceived ideas and set whims.
The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at British Airways (Heathrow, England (UK)).
You get greeted and handed a pass and a name badge.
Then you wait in the lobby and everyone gets called into a room with a presentation about the company and about pay and what to expect of your successful.
At this point my nerves was at a all time high. This was my third time and I had studied loads for when I would hopefully get a interview. Then my first task was the group exercise and that was fun because we had such a laugh and then after was the dreaded role play!!!! I hate that and don’t understand how that helps the decision making for these recruiters:.. in my normal day to day job I’m perfectly fine dealing with customers but I go blank and stumble on my words knowing I’m being assessed. This time I did what I thought was best.
1-The business class passenger was vegetarian and I could see there was a vegetarian meal in economy so I offered them this if one is available and asked if they would be happy with this.
2-Then they went on about really bad turbulence on their last flight.
I shown empathy and told them I totally understand and that I was once a scared passenger and what turbulence was and they would be fine with us.
3-Then they went on about the delay.
I told them we are making our best effort to leave ASAP and BA always try there best to depart and land on time
4-They also asked about moving to first class because they wanted the meal.
I told them I can not unfortunately just move them up but they could pay for the upgrade to first class
With this being my third time trying all I want is a chance. A chance for them to interview me and to get to know me. Judging me on my nerves, nerves that are mixed with passion.
I really want to work for this airline but I truly feel that maybe they just take a automatic look at me and think no straight away.
It’s so unfair because I’m good crew :-(
Will I try again in 6months?, I don’t no. Just wish they gave feedback to let me no what and where I go wrong.
