I was there also. I am in the same situation.
Same situation here, nobody got the medical appointment! They changed the processus, so no medical doesn’t mean you are not taken, next steps should be personality tests and a call for medical appointment!
Great to hear something positive, keep us updated if you get anything ! Best of luck xx
No update yet, it seems that they did not even have group interview in Toronto this weekend, so in Montreal as far as I know, nobody got medicals and in Toronto not even group interview.
In Montreal some people did get the medical actually. And a lot of them :/ At least those before 2:30pm
Yes, I think they were the last one before 3pm, nobody gets any medicals after that time...
You know for sure?
On Oct 14, 2017 Toronto Sheraton Hotel Pearson Airport, did anyone get medicals after the group discussion?
I was told 1-2 weeks as well but no medical can someone please let us know if Medicaid were booked same day???
Can anyone tell me what questions were asked in the french language assessment?
Can anyone help me out please ,so i have applied for the flight attendant job for air canada and was called for a phone interview over a month ago and was than passed on to the language assessment and completed ,now i was told i would have to wait for approx 1-2 weeks to get an email to schedule the face to face interview ,,only thing is i need help as to what is going to be expected of me and what kind of questions would they ask ,i really need to land the job and be accepted so kind help of everyone that went through the process and accepted would be greatly appreciated
Hi, I also had my interview in Montreal a week and a half ago (my appointment was at 3pm) but no one in my group was asked to schedule a medical appointment, and no one in the group after me was asked for a medical appointment. All 12 of us were told we'd be notified in a week or two. It's been a week and a half, and still no word.
Eeeexactly the same situation here :/ Keep us updated if anything changes
Same situation for Montreal october 14th. No one in my group or the one before got the medical and still no news from them.
Im glad to see that I’m not the only one! My group was separated in 2 but none of us got medicals... someone told me that some got medicals earlier in the day, but seems really weird that 2 groups did not get medicals... maybe they want to mix things up! I’ll keep you update
Yeah the way they proceed now has changed, if their goal is to confuse us it's working! I'm here sitting all day expecting to get a call or an email lol, hope we get it guys!
Hahaha, agreed! I'm super confused, and constantly checking my phone to see if i've received any news! I'm hoping we hear back quickly and get good news!!
Tomorrow makes two weeks, has anyone heard back yet?
Was wondering the same thing, still nothing
still nothing, 2 weeks today...
I'm confused, it's been two weeks today and seems like nobody got anything. They already started the process for the next batch of flight attendants... has anyone gotten anything yet?
I was there too on October 11 in the morning. In my group of 4 at the end, we were asked again the order of preference of the 3 cities, our prefered language for the training and they told us that we were going to have some news within 2 weeks. So today was the 2 weeks deadline, but nothing... I am looking at my emails all the time! Lol Don’t know if they send an automated email from Taleo if people are not chosen.
I'm honestly hoping they do send us an email even if we aren't chosen, because i'm constantly looking at my phone, and just want to know yes or no. I thought today would be the day we'd find out, but hopefully by the end of the week we hear back..
Just got my rejection email :/ a little bothersome that they made us wait this long. Has anyone gotten a positive email?
Got a rejection email too, my friend who was also there after 3 got the rejection email as well
Got the rejection email too. So if no medical exam is scheduled on the day of the interview, it’s a no. :( oh well, next!
Negative for me
For the face to face interviews in Montreal is it mainly in French, or do you choose the language to be interviewed in?
I just got an email about an in person interview. I did the video, and the language things already. But the interview date is already 4 days away. Did anyone also get such short notice? It only has one date available and I don't think I can do it ! Thoughts ? Do you think I could schedule it again for later in the future? Or should I abandon everything to make this one interview?
I was told to wait 1 to weeks to hear vback after group Interview. They didn’t schedule for medical same day
I was at the interview October 14th in Toronto. Initially had the video interview, followed by the phone interview to test the second language. Was then invited to the face to face interview, had the group interview that same day, and went for the medical the following week. We were told we would be notified within 4-6 weeks. It has now been 6 weeks and I haven't heard anything. I called and left a message and have had no response. Is anyone else in the same position, has anyone received notice that they have officially been hired? Answers are greatly appreciated ...
Why do you want to be a flight attendant?24 Answers
Was is for Air Canada Mainlines or Air Canada Rouge?
I also am in the same situation, at what time did you pass the interview on the 11?
I was there also, no offer, no medical test appointment ...they told me that they will contact me in 1-2 weeks...
Same situation, what bothers me is that on the same day they scheduled a lot of people for medical.. I’m not sure why we have to wait, if it was all booked or because were rejected
Oh did they? Then maybe we are backup if these people failed the medical test or change their minds.
Have all of you passed the f2f interview AND group interview in the SAME day (11 october at Montreal) for a flight attendant position for AC mainline?
it means they are not hiring you. you will receive an email that we are sorry..... do not expect medical exam if they did not give you date while you were there for interview. i am wondering what was the inflight scenarios they gave you in group interview
Yes I passed both f2f and group the same day on the 11 in Montreal for AC Mainline. Has anyone been hired although they didn’t get the medical scheduled during the interview? Find it hard to believe that they would reject whole groups of people if they hired entire groups just a few minutes before. everything went well so I find it weird that they would make us wait for 2 weeks just to get rejected
Guess you’re gonna have to get as far to a group interview to know about the inflight scenarios. no point in preparing for them
Nobody got a medical appointment at the end of the day, they are changing the processus because everybody expect a medical appointment at the end of the day. I was told we will received the personality tests and we will have a to call for the medical appointment. Maybe the ones who got the medical appointment already done the personality tests?
Are you sure they gave medical appointment that day?
For me, all of my group went before me, getting no medicals, I was called right after with another guy from the group after me and we got no medical appointment too. It was almost 6:30pm when I left. I find it hard to believe that no one from my group have not been selected because they were great!
I’m very sure that they gave medicals to the groups before me. My interview was scheduled at 3, my groups didn’t get anything , and the ones scheduled before got medicals
And none of the ones that I know had done the personality tests beforehand. They did it after their scheduled medical.. maybe it was a matter of booked up medicals? I don’t think it’s about having too much accepted people since they need like 1100+ FA’s and they opened up a new positions slot on their site a few days ago.. they need flight attendants
Thats it, they normally do the tests after booking the medical, but I think they were full and since I was almost the last one that day, they all look tired and exhausted, a lot of people didn’t get the medical appointment it just doesn’t seem normal to me. After my group interview the group was divided in 3, they called one guy alone, and we all saw him leaving fast, after they called the rest of the group except me. It didn’t take long and they were out too (someone from the group told me they didn’t get medicals) and after I was called with a guy from the group after me and we didn’t get medicals, just ask in which langage we want our training.
From what I heard, a loooooot of people didn’t get medicals appointment, like I said they were really good applicants in my group so can’t believe they will not be getting any medicals ...
Well seems like Mainline really changed their ways, nothing is as it used to be. People in Toronto didn't even do group interview at all. We have no other choice but to wait. Wishing the best of luck to everyone :-)
People are telling that some got medicals in Montreal but all before 3pm. Can anybody confirm?
I can confirm you that, I know a few people who got the medicals that day, but they were all at 2:30 and before that. Seems like nobody got any medicals after the 3pm groups
People in Toronto did get group interviews
I find it so weird that they had appointments all the way until 7pm or later, but gave all the medical appointments before 3pm. I was scheduled at 3, and no one in my group, or the group after me received medicals.. Still waiting to hear back
I was scheduled at 11 am in Montreal and no one in my group or the one before got a medical
That's weird, group at 2:30 before me, 5 out of 6 people got their medical, people at 10am also had medicals. Maybe they gave medicals to the people that they're sure about? And the rest of us are on hold in case they don't pass the GIA or the medicals? :/
It's what I think also, we did well but not enough to make them sure about us, so we are kept in case they failed medical or something else.
Why do you want to work for Air Transat? Where did you hear about our job posting? What are the tasks of a flight attendant?24 Answers
Ont se voit le 16 alors :)
Oui on se voit le 16!! Bonne chance :)
Jetais presente et cest sure je lai pas eu jai passer seulement 1 entrevue
Est-ce que quelqu'un a fait l'essayage d'uniforme?
Est-ce que ça veut dire que nous sommes pas engagé si nous avons eu une seule entrevue ?
La fille qui m’a fait mon entrevue m’a dit qu’ils ont changé le processus d’embauche! Je ne sais pas si elle m’a menti ou si c’est vraiment vrai!
Moi j'ai fait une seconde entrevue, mais pas d'essayage d'uniforme, alors je ne sais pas si c'est bon signe...
Cela veut peut-être rien dire une, deux entrevues, essaie d'uniformes etc... ceux qui en ont eu une vont peut être être appelé aussi on ne sait jamais...il ne faut pas être négative 😊
As tu fais un essaie d'uniforme?
non et toi ? et ceux qui ont fait l'essaie est-ce que vous avez été engagé ou ils vont vous rappeler
J'ai fais la première et la deuxième entrevue, j'ai également fais l'essayage d'uniforme et le backcheck. Ils m'ont galement cédulé un test médical.. Mes amis qui travaillent à air transat ont dit que le processus d'embauche est encore le même malheureusement
Moi j'étais présente le 15 pour l'entrevue J'en ai fais qu'une seul entrevue avec 2 agent de bord et encore la j'avais remarquer qu'ils avaient même pas fini de me poser toute les questions sur la feuille donc je pense que ceux qui ce sont pas rendu à l'essayage d'uniforme ainsi que le test médical ne sont pas embaucher donc perdez pas votre temps et postulez ailleurs au lieu de nous faire attendre 4 semaine !!
Tu as raison...d'après moi ceux qui n'ont pas fait l'essayage et test médical ne seront pas pas engagé...:(
Hi! I have my F2F interview tomorrow, is the interview in french and english? Thank you :)
Hi! I have my F2F interview tomorrow, is the interview in french and english? Thank you :)
Coucou! Moi j'ai eu 2 entrevues, le fitting et le test medical, mais j'attend encore des réponses. Ils mavaient dit entre 3 et 4 semaines alors ne perdons pas espoir!
Moi Aussi j'ai eu les 2 entrevues, le fitting et mon test medical est demain matin! J'ai hâte de savoir bonne chance à tout le monde!!
Juste pour vous dire jai reçu l'email et malheureusement je n'ai pas été prise alors tout ceux qui n'ont pas eu l'essaye d'uniforme ainsi que le rdv médical laissée tombée bonne journée
J’ai fait deux entrevues, le test médical et malgré cela, je n’ai pas été sélectionnée. Il semble difficile d’être engagé...
what kind of aptitude test do they test you?
J’ai hâte d’avoir des nouvelles quelqu’un qui a fait l’entrevue le 5 mars et a passé le test médical à eu des nouvelles !??
What’s the small knowledge test like ? Please give me an example if you don’t mind :)
Did you go for a uniform fitting and medical the same day?
describe a time when you recognized there was a mistake and how did you handle it?16 Answers
I had the interview today as well, I didn't get a medical testing... did you have a group interview or just one on one?
Did you do a group interview? And what was the estimated time you were given for them to follow up with you?
I did only f2f interview, than I asked to hr person and she told me that every interview process is different. I will be contacting within 6-8 weeks. I think I did not get the job because I was sent with the worlds of within 6-8 weeks
I asked to hr person for group interview.
Omg, I guess I am not the only one wondering what is happening. Same thing for me, f2f for 20 min, basic questions. I was told to wait 6-8 weeks for answer too. And I asked if there will be further interviews and they said no, this is the last step. But I can't believe there is no group interview. Can someone share more info
Now I am wondering if really there were not group interview or we were told like that because we lost. please all candidates share more info with us
I also had no group interview with only a f2f one and have been told to wait 6-8 weeks. I was also confused as everything was going so good and I had a pretty good feelling during the interview as well as the interviewer seemed very interested about my profile. I also asked at the end if there was supposed to have a group interview and she said there was no group interview... So I don't know what to think 😕
I applied online via the AC careers portal in September 2017. Then did online video interview September 8th, 2017. Got a phone call on October 6th to schedule a language test. I have my language testing this week (October 19th). How was the language test. I am not fluent in french, but have working knowledge. (as put on my application). What kinds of questions were asked for the language test?? hard or easy?? I am a bit nervous haha. How soon did you get a f2f interview invite after language testing??
I also did a f2f interview on October 14th, but no group interview. After the f2f interview, two interviewers escorted me to the hallway and gave me a sheet of paper about the Training session. One said I will hear back within 6-8 weeks. I think this is their nice way of saying "no" so I asked him if there is no group interview today. He said today is really busy full of applicants so there is no further process. I still doubt if I failed the next step.
language test is easy, you do not have to worry about that. your daily life and hobbies will be asked
Hi I was there on Saturday and we received medicals! Already had mine.
Danielle, have you heard anything back yet? I had a medical too and haven’t heard
Hey I had my medical test 5 weeks ago and I haven’t heard anything back. Is anyone in the same boat as me ?
Danielle, I had my medical on October 16th and still waiting to hear back. I heard they sent out some rejection letters to people who didn’t get medicals around Halloween so I guess no news is good news maybe at this point. I heard a rumour that hiring is delayed a month or two as well but no details
Yesterday was my f2f interview. Am I the only person that hasn't received the online assessment test beforehand? I was not given a medical test, however, would the medical exam get scheduled only after test completion? They should be contacting me within the next 4-6 weeks. Thanks.
Tell me about a time where you had to make a difficult choice, but either way, the result would negatively effect someone.12 Answers
Hello there! Thanks for sharing your experience. Hiw long did you wait before having the email to schedule the face-to-face interview?
Hi There, I waited about 3 days and the email was sent exactly a week before the face-to-face interview. I hope that helps! My best.
Thank you so much! I am waiting for the face to face interview in Montreal!
Best of luck! Always remember that being yourself is the best possible trait you can offer for any interview. If the job isn't for you, it only means that your fit for something else, most likely something even better! So don't stress too much!
Thanks and yes you’re right, we’re on the same page, if it’s for me it’ll work out if not, next time!
Hi! I've taken my medical in October and waiting on a call back from them. Please keep me posted with your progress!
Will do! You as well.
Did you get the job?!
I had received a phone interview 2 weeks after application, then a f2f interview 2 weeks after that
How did you answer that?
How long after medical test did you get an answer ?
Why westjet ?12 Answers
Hi did you get a training date yet..I am also pooled
No ... still no news ... But the training is in September... so maybe in august !
Oh I had no idea...here in Toronto the word was July or August..did a westjet rep tell you that the training is in September? ..thank you for your reply..!
I applied for Vancouver! And when i asked when were the classes, he replied july and September in Calgary
Oh okay. Yes in Toronto we were told that westjet only holds trainings in Calgary so it makes sense that the next training class is in September in Calgary. Thank you !
Hi me again...any news yet ?
Hi, still not... I think that we will get new in the first week of august if we are taken
I applied for Vancouver based on june 16 and there's no email or phone interview for me yet. Just wondering anyone applied but with no news on interview like me?
This is getting so frustrating..I emailed my recruiter and she just told me to be patient
Still nothing on my side ... what about you ?
Still nothing for me either..I really hate how you have to put your life on hold
Hello ladies, I see this post was in 2017, did you got the job?
giving examples of situations at work related to customer service and team work9 Answers
give examples, i "studied" a couple days before. I wrote down situations from my current job of angry customers, how i would manage difficult situations ect
They just posted again they are hiring flight attendants. I passed all the process, my interview was November 9, Medical on the 11 and they told me to wait for next steps. Which group on Facebook you saw they are on hiring freeze? Thank you.
Hi, there are two facebook groups that i am aware of there's mainline applicants and flight attendant canada or something. I was so disapointed when I saw this news, but i don't really think anyone has the exact information. Some are saying spring, others february..so instead of stressing about it im just waiting to hear from them(maybe/hopefully). Some people have received a rejection letter as of last week, which i guess is good if you still havent received anything. Good luck !
Thank you! I am still waiting..
Hey! Quick question, I had the interview the same day, everything went well. I was told I would hear back within a week or two but still haven’t heard. I also never went for a medical yet. Where did the medical take place? Is it at the same place the interviews were done or is it at a doctors office?
Hi, the medicial takes place at the headoffice, same building. From what i've seen before, they give you the medical apointment after your interview.. But it can be different for other people. I remember first time i received the letter like 4 weeks after the interview.. If it's not this time, try again in 6 months, it's my second time trying for mainline :)
Thanks for getting back to me! I was actually called to go back to head office this Saturday which is odd. I was thinking maybe it was for the medical but they didn’t seem to give out too much information? I think it’s more like a second interview!
Hey! No idea what that could be.. ive heard people going back for second interview.. have you done the group part? (Ive got the call earlier this week.. I will be in the next trainning !)
Ah congratulations!! That is so exciting. I also think it will be a second interview. I’ll see tomorrow!
what would you do if there is a handicapped person in the emergency exit row and you have to change him place? Why Air Canada Should hire you? Tell me about a time that you gave customer service from frustrated to satisfaction9 Answers
Hey! Best of luck on your upcoming interview! Would you be able to update how it goes?
How did your interview go? I was there today as well!
The first, individual one was good but the group interview was not so good. I wasn't scheduled for medical exam. how did your interview go?
I wasn't scheduled for a medical either, however I feel as though I did really well. Were they scheduling medicals today or are they phoning candidates to schedule?
After the one on one that was basically it for me. She showed me out, gave me the crew questions And answers regarding the training and said I'd hear back within 6-8 weeks. Left a little disappointed, but still hoping for the best.
according to comments on this website we should have been scheduled for medical exam after team work interview. however, I am not really sure how the hiring system works.
Do you know if they cut people from the phone interview? I got the language tests done and it went well but I havent recieved anything for the online test. Do they call you and then send it or do they just email you?
I was scheduled language test and online test right after the phone interview by the same person. I think everybody has different process. I do not have any idea what process Air Canada follows. Just wait, if you language test was good they will contact with you for face to face interview and online test. In the email which they sent me for f2f interview says If I have not done online test I had to finish it before go to the f2f interview. If you beleive your language test was good, My suggestion is keep your hope up and wait.
have you been contacted for medical test yet?
Explain what you did when you had a difficult customer?9 Answers
Could I ask how long it has been since your medical? Or when was your medical exam date? I went through pretty much identical process as you and my medical was on January 28th. Currently still waiting to hear back.. I cannot remember if they told me at the interview either 4-6 weeks or 6-8 weeks .. Fingers crossed.
Its been 2 weeks but they told me 6-8 weeks to hear back but you never know could be earlier
I see. Thanks for that information! Would you be able to update your review or post something so that we have an idea of how long it takes for them to get back to you post initial interview / medical ? Good luck!
Do they tell you when you'll hear back from them after you complete your linguistics interviews? Also can you please explain in detail what the medical test actually consist of? I heard they put you in a tube and do hearing tests. Is that correct?
I went to pretty much same process as u first phone call on the dec16 and then on 21 and 22 were language test and then I didn't hear back anything. On Jan6 I received assessment test link. After that my interview was on the feb09 f2f,group interview and then medical on the same day. But after that day I didn't hear anything back yet. Can I pls update when u heard back something from them pls and thank u.
