A day at work would start with me seeing what position I have for my shift then going to the first assigned departure lounge for an arrival or a departure of an aircraft. I've learnt about safety and security and what I need to do for on time departures of aircraft and well as learning the systems put in place. Management are fair and everybody works as part of a team helping one another. The hardest part of the job is the accountability that sometimes is out of your hands. The best part is interacting with colleagues as well as meeting and networking with some very interesting people of the public.
Discounted Air Travel & some travel other travel benefits
Very early morning starts & sometimes having meal breaks out of the normal times.
It depends if money is more important than time... Which you don't get paid much like four hours on this day or 6 hours the next... You gotta pick up more hours just to make ends meat. But the only good thing about the job is there a lot of downtime and you get to work with planes but to be honest time is more important than money because at this job you have to put your life on hold just to make the hours you need just to survive.
Flight Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 27 September 2017
Contract role, very demanding and little support.
Salary was entry level, but the expertise and speed required doesn't match up. Staff that keep up, work full hours at the office, and continue at home. Believe money constraints as Virgin tried to return to profit, and didn't appoint the correct number of staff.
Domestic and International Cabin Crew (Current Employee) – Brisbane Airport QLD – 30 July 2017
A fast pace environment to work in with hard working employees that all pull their weight to fulfil our job title. There is no such thing as a typical day of flying. Yes, we may do the same thing in the air each day but you don't know where or who the job could possibly take you that day or week. Working with big personalities always makes the day go faster.
Virgin Australia is a great place to work. Career advancement is supported, and great travel perks are included. It has a family like culture, where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential.
I absolutely love working hard and keeping busy, working in a team is my favourite part about customer service. I thoroughly enjoy being faced with tasks that test my efficiency, I'm always looking for new ways to improve on myself and the workplace.
Cabin Supervisor (Current Employee) – Sydney NSW – 10 January 2016
A typical day at work can vary when you are on an aeroplane. Hardest part of the job is doing our usual day with weather disturbances. Enjoyable part is the crew and day to day activities its an overall fun job. after 14 years I still learn different things. I was classed as management in a supervisor role. but worked in the office with Management I have no concerns there.
