Virgin America Employment Question

Wed Jun 20, 2007 9:20 am

Good Evening:

Two questions I could use some help with:

1) I am interested in a position at Virgin America. However does anybody have a scheduled launch date for their first flights? Their website says mid-summer, but anything more specific than that?

2) May I please have the name of the person who does the hiring at Virgin America? If you would like to keep his/her name confidential, I'll be happy to email you.


Thanks very much,

A-

Would there be any chance for a foreigner to get a position with Virgin America? Or are the jobs for US-citizens only? I am a Dutch national.

There is no prohibition against US airlines hiring foreign nationals , but you'd have to have a US work visa, or another form of legal immigration status.

Have they put any opportunities out for Flight Attendants? I do not recall seeing any openings for that position. I would think they would have hired some by now for proving runs and all.
