    I have been working at Virgin Australia Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Systems usually always improving. Great people and good pay compared to the new contracts offered at other major employers. Staff travel perks have always improved with great perks for me, friends and family.

    Cons

    The work/life balance needs further improvement, such as abilities to better swap trips. The strategic direction of the company is not known, which is difficult to know where we're heading.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Virgin Australia Airlines (Sydney) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Virgin Australia holds what is called 'assessment days,' they go for approximately 4 hours. In the assessment day, you will have an information session, a group activity (scenario unfolds onboard a flight, what do you do?) and then the one on one interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The One on one interview questions ranged between:

      Tell me a bit about yourself.

      Why do you think you are suited to this role?

      What previous customer experience do you hold that may benefit you in this job?

      Provide an example of a time you had to go above and beyond to provide customer service.   Answer Question
