You only wear business attire for the first few days. Then you'll be in uniform from then on.

I did my medical last month and was worried like you as I had knee reconstruction in past, I don't have any problems since my operation my knee is 100% if not stronger (2 titanium screws there for rest of my life). The only reminder is a scar. The doctor performed few exercises and stretches to make sure its fine I was told everything is fine. I was offered ground school 3 days later. Good luck

in regards to first aid certificate. I didn't have First aid certificate or RSA when attended my AD. When I got my golden call I was offered ground school but was told that I have to obtain RSA and first aid cert before my first day at GS.
ALL the best

Thank you so much. Fingers crosses tomorrow. If I can just get through to the panel I know I'll have somewhat of a chance I hope. But like anything will not get my hopes up too much. Can only be my honest self.

Booked in to do my first aid next week all sorted and my arm should be fine with the screws like you said stronger!

I hope tomorrow goes well! Worried how many people there will be and how they pick who to go to panel.

You wear Business dress during EPS and like the 2nd or 3rd day of Service training is when you wear the uniform

Hi everyone. Is it possible to attend an interview in another city, other than the one you live in? I currently live in sydney but wish to re-locate to adelaide soon, so how do I go about getting an interview there, rather than sydney, if my application was put thru the first stage. Any help would be great. Thanks.

If they don't have an AD in Adelaide, than I would still highly recommend that you attend the Sydney AD. Just let them know at the interview that you would want to relocate to Adelaide base.

Through mam/qantas do you get provided with a bag or luggage or purchase it. If so what type and where to buy? Thanks! Also can you bring your own healthy snacks and food to have whilst flying. And water etc. any tips will be helpful

QF will give you all your baggage. Day bags/handbag and overnight wheelie bags. And a suitpack.

regarding your food.. yeap, some crew like to bring their own meals. Just remember that some ports such as PER dont allow you to bring in fruit etc And yes, they are tough on policing it.

During meal times (breakfast/lunch/dinner) QF will supply you with a business class meal. Other times there are always loads of snacks onboard.

Wow that's awesome they supply that. Very cool.

Yes I thought perth and some ports down allow fruit. But was querying just in regards to some healthy options as am unaware of all the food on board.

Thank you all

Haha prison

There are always choices for the crew meals. Usually there is a salad choice (healthier) and all the hot meals have a side salad.

You can eat healthy... until you get to the crew ice creams. Goodluck resisting the Maggie Beer ice creams!!!

Oh gosh maggie beer ice cream is awesome! Didn't know such nice foods existed on planes. Although I have never flown business or first class. My goal one day to fly first. Now that would be wonderful. Good to see a job you don't have to pay for lunch if you don't want

You won't have much time to eat when you first start flying. Too busy getting your head around everything. And you'll be working business class which is pretty busy.
