Hi, I am new one here. Did anyone attend AD in Sydney, 28 October for MAM casual CC? I progressed to panel interview and now i am waiting for the result. I heard they already send email to a friend that she is unsuccesful. Now I feel more nervous. I guess no news is a good news. Good luck to everyone.
Hi, I heard they do reference checks on all candidates before they let everyone know if they are successful or unsuccessful. My friend who attended the same day AD in Syd had her references checked already last week, but still haven't heard from them. On MAM website they say we should hear from them within 14 working days (that is 3 weeks including weekends) so I'm hoping for result this week. Good luck to all of us.
If successful do you think the training school will start before Christmas? I'm going away from 21/12 - 2/1 and I'm a bit worried that I might miss out.
Dont be alarmed if you dont hear anything for a few weeks. Theres a massive recruitment drive going on so their pretty busy. No news is good news. If you know theyve done your ref checks and its been over a week and you havent heard from them, its probaly good news cause it means youve made it through to the 1st review stage.
Danfromaus, you were in ground school at the moment right? How is it going?
It was probably a week and a half for me between my references being checked and getting the email saying I'd been progressed to medicals. My application progressed very quickly between assessment day and offer of employment.
Cabin_girl - there are a few ground schools coming up next month and I believe there is one in January too. If starting in December you will be training throughout the Christmas/New Year period, with 4 days off. We were told on our assessment day that despite what the website says, not everyone will hear back from MAM/Qantas within the 3 week timeframe (they said they were going to take that down from their website) as they are very busy and there are several factors that could delay the application. No news is definitely good news :-) Hope you hear soon!
Hi Jecui, thanks for all the info. If successful, is medical and security check done at the same time or do you have to wait first to pass medical before sending your security application? I had security checked before in 2003 and it took 5 or 6 weeks. If I make it, I don't think I'll make it to ground school in December as there are only 6 weeks till the end of 2011 and I haven't been contacted yet. How are you going with the process, what stage are you at? Good luck to everyone, love reading all the posts and replies!
I completed ground school at the end of october jecui.
You could start this year. It can all happen really fast. I waited a totall of like 4 weeks between my interview date and start date. If you are successful this year and cant make it, just tell them and they will surely place you next year
Congrats Danfromaus! Are you flying yet? How was it? I'm so excited for ground school!
Cabin_girl - as danfromaus said, it can happen very quickly so you could get in this year if successful (depending on how much notice you've said you need). The medical and security checks are done around the same time. It was only about a month for me between my assessment day and being told I was successful too. Good luck
It varies so don't be too worried. i attended the same AD as Jecui.. i even did my medicals & sent in my security clearance before her but im still waiting to hear =) this waiting is killing me but once they call, it'll be worth it
Let us know how you're doing, we'd love to hear more about it!
Hi everyone, I'm still waiting for any news but I'm not as nervous anymore. I know its to soon (3 weeks since my AD). It's great to hear and read about all you guys progresses while I'm waiting. When they make their decision they will surely let me know. Congrant to those who started ground school. Keep us informed how is it going.
I am very very new to this. I am writing to find out if anyone was at the Melbourne interviews in September (I think it was the 21st??) and have heard or been successful. I have just received a good news call last Friday and I start training school on the 9th Jan.
I also wanted to find out if anyone knows what to expect from the monthly rosters ie many overnights, typical duty day etc and pay. I am ex long haul cabin crew and was based out of London. I have returned back to Melbourne and thought casual flying might work well as I am a mum and can't be doing with all the full time commitments, hours and brain washing cabin crew can face with companies such as Virgin - in saying all this I do miss flying.
Any feedback would be great...Can't wait to be back in the air....
Because you need to be available for a minimum of 20 days a month there is still the potential to work full time (or close to full time) hours (but they should have covered that at your AD). It would just depend on the type of duties you're given as to whether you'd get those kind of hours, but I'd imagine it would vary each month.
I received an email this afternoon saying that they would now like to progress my application to the next stage, being medical and security check.
For those who are still waiting, this was my time frame. 28.10. AD in Sydney 08.11. Call from MAM saying they would like to start my reference check but
need additional information 8.-11.11. All references contacted 28.11. Asking MAM for an update or if they need any more information 29.11. Email saying my file is at the executive review stage 30.11. Email saying my file progressed to medical & security check
Jecui, Have you start ground school yet?
Does anybody know if there are any ground schools in December? I heard 9.12. is next GS.
Congrants on starting your ground school soon. The dates that they offered you where they for Brisbane GS or Sydney GS? A friend from my AD started GS on 9.12. in Sydney, I am hoping I have a spot in the next one maybe in early January.
Can somebody tell me how long after the medical they tell you when you start GS? Did they call you or emailed you? Thanks
