Thanks for that 1Charlie!

One question out of that though. When you say that "you'll be offered a salary table which isn't the same as in the collective agreement" what table do they use?? Is there anywhere online we can see it?

It's the same table, but expect them not to offer you your equivalent step based on your experience. Eg step 5 for 5 years experience. It's not published anywhere but they'll probably send you this in their offer of employment

Hey Ruth.

No, you won't get paid removal expenses. What you will get paid is either airfares for your and your dependants; or an equivalent surface fare if you're driving.

You will get put up in accommodation for one week while you look for somewhere to live. After that, you're on your own.

Unless it changes between now and when you start. Which I wouldn't imagine it will

Also, although you may have applied for enroute, you might only get offered tower. Some of us got a choice, some didn't apparently.

I didn't get offered tower, I just told them I'd changed my mind after doing a famil. If you get through the selection process, just tell them what you want.

As far as the fuel expense is concerned, I was a bit annoyed that they didn't pay for my removals to Melbourne, but I didn't have a complaint about how much they paid for my fuel costs to get there. It was around three times what the fuel actually cost.

Steve, as I said, not everyone gets a choice.

Haha, sorry 2b2 - no offence intended!

I wanted to do tower, I was offered it, it was my choice my a country mile... but because I have three children and need a stable base for a while, I "settled" for Enroute.

Application unsuccessful. Must say I'm bitterly disappointed. But that's how it goes. I know of a couple of other guys with the same outcome. What is strange is that not everyone has been given to do the online tests yet. Some guys like me did them but failed. Others like you are waiting still. I wonder how they work it! Anyways best of luck hope you get a response soon.

Unfortunately I didn't get it. Got told I failed online. I know of a couple other who got told same thing. What is a little strange is that guys who submitted late have not even been asked to do online. But who knows how they work it. I suppose it's done in batches. Hope you hear soon!

Sorry to hear it. Im one of the people who has yet to do the online testing. On Monday my application status online changed from "Application Received" to "Application under review" but I havent received any communication or invites for online testing.

Hi all,

I just got my official feedback from ASA, apparently I just missed out (it was the sim that let me down), good news is though, they recommanded me to apply for this Procedure Designer pos in the ACT, when I was initially rejected.

My advice is, if you really enjoy aviation and wanna work for ASA, why not apply for other pos within the organisation. I personally felt that it was a good experience to deal with them, even though I didn't make it for ATC.

Good luck to all!!

I also failed the assessment centre, they sent me the negative feedback in 2 weeks time. Well, I might try again next year if I still feel like it and at least I'll know what the tests are like.

Good luck people!

Got my feedback about a month after my assessment center. If you're keen on your feedback, just give them a call, most likely they're gonna get back to you.
