Not sure what overnights they do but a mate of mine works for Eastern which is Qantaslink in Sydney and for their first year pay annual salary is $36,965 and with their new EBA there is an increase to first year pay in September 2012 which will then mean $38,074. Hope that helps and good luck!
Hey KAATE or anyone else that got into MAM. Just wondering if you had previous experience. I went through the whole process with QD, but then ADL base took traininng schools off the table. I got a text message a few months later advising MAM was recruiting. I applied, then was advised that because i was already through the whole process with QD that i didnt have to do the assesment. I was forwarded to do medical, but then even before i got the chance to go to the medical i was advised i was unsuccessful ??
Airlines recruit under three basic circumstances: 1.Adding to the fleet 2.Network growth 3.Higher than normal attrition. At present QF mainline is retiring aircraft and has delayed the delivery of A380s.The AKL base is being closed and those CC who are of a mind can transfer to the A380 or the LHR base.There are also rumours circulating that the LHR base may close and a DXB base open.It is at this stage unlikely that QF mainline will be recruiting in the near term.Not wanting to rain on anyone's parade but trying to provide relevant information.Virgin is looking at growth.It maybe a good idea to register an EOI with them
QF CABIN CREW AUSTRALIA IS RECRUITING ARABIC SPEAKERS With our A380 services to Dubai just around the corner, we’re recruiting Flight Attendants with Arabic language skills. Opportunities will shortly go live on Qantas Careers and advertisements will begin to appear in recruitment channels. If you have any friends or family who you believe would make great Flight Attendants and have Arabic language skills, please encourage them to apply by visiting the Qantas Careers website at www.careers.qantas.com.au.
I just looked at this, and it is advertised on seek.com and also the QantasCareers website.
Does anyone know whether they will be recruiting International (or Domestic)flight attendants in any near future? When I logged into my application it now says ‘accepting’ submissionsunder the international link (which previously said inactive). Is there a glimmer of hope they might beconsidering hiring new flight attendant staff?
Depends on which Qantaslink you are looking for the Dash 8 or the B717
I work for the B717 and the flying is very family friendly earlist sign on 0415 and latest sign off 2200 but you can swap shifts always people looking. average shift length is 6 hours must hours in a month is 120
I recently applied for Brisbane Base Cabin Crew through Cobham, i unfortunalty received the unsuccessful email very disapointed as i hold all recent relevent qualifications and training with over 17 years in hospitality/tourism industies. I emailed back asking for feedback but have still had no response. does anyone know why my application may of been unsuccessful.. do they for instance look for people with flying experience? i have current first aid, RSA even certificates in customer service. i have also applied for Virgin, Jetstar through altara, MAM...nothing seems to be happening in Brisbane ATM. i am so eager to begin my career as a flight attendant and now is the perfect time for me as my children are at that age where they are more dependant and i can do shift work and work a way. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks everyone and congratulations to all those who are successful in this very competitive career!
To answer your question no they do not require previous flying experience. You have the correct certificates and experience so their decision would be based on your team activities which are continually assessed and assessment of your throughout the whole morning group session. (if your assessment day was structured the same way as mine) In my observations the overly confident and forthright 'leaders' in the groups, to generalise, did not progress to one on one interview stage. I think your maturity is an advantage. I would keep trying if it is what you really want to do. You will get better at the assessment days. Hope this is of assistance/encouragement to you.
Thank You very much for the reply! i didnt even get invited to the assessment day. i will keep trying and trying and have no intentions of giving up! Again, Thank You for your reply and congratulations on getting through! happy and safe flying to all!
Keep trying - Brissy base is expanding all the time. Try making your resume stand out, include key words that are used in the advert. You will get there, I finally got there and I am 38. When you do get there you will never look back.
