Nothing yet. Email last week said something mid this week. Hopefully something tomorrow or Friday. It seems from what I can read on this forum that the third stage of testing may be a new addition so they might be still sorting out some stuff.

Third stage of testing done, now the waiting game.

Any opinions from those that completed it? Personally I found the radar sim tests to be the most challenging, especially the ones with multitasking the maths equations.

Fingers crossed for good news.

I canít say Iím all that confident with those tests! The multitasking maths/radar ones were a bit much, after a few rounds I started ignoring the maths questions because they were too distracting.

Good luck! Hopefully it wonít be a massive wait before we hear something.

Same here. I felt my chances were reasonably ok-ish until the radar screen with maths. Lets see how it plays out. Good luck everyone!

Online Interview

Have only just stumbled across this thread. I applied for the most recent intake and was advised by email on Wednesday (August 18) that I had passed the tests and can now complete an Online Interview.
Just responses to pre-recorded audio, anyone else at this stage? I'm expecting they might not be inviting people to Melbourne this time round unless offered a position? I was invited to attend an interview in Melbourne in March last year but it was cancelled due to Covid, unsure how essential it would be to invite applicants to Vic to determine they're suited.

Also received the video interview email, fingers crossed to hear some good news in a few days time. It seems they might be doing the entire recruitment process online now due to COVID, although I'd much prefer to attend an in-person interview compared to recording answers on a computer.

Squigels, or any else finished video interview stage, have you heard anything from ASA yet?

Nothing yet, I've read that they usually have about 50-100 people that would have normally attended a day at the assessment centre in a given intake. I'm expecting that at least 50-100 people would have been invited to do online interviews and it may take quite some days, if not a few weeks, to get through them all. Fingers crossed we hear back with a verdict in the coming days but wouldn't hold my breathe.

I have completed the video interviews and just hanging out. The further I get into the process the more excited I get, and to say I'm excited is an understatement. I am quite patient and don't mind waiting though being already employed in Aviation.

Exactly how I feel, the further we go into the process the more optimistic I become, need to remind myself every now and again that the chances are always against me until I (hopefully) get an offer.
Hopefully the COVID situation hasn't had too harsh of an impact upon the recruitment team down in Melbourne and we can hear back from them soon.

Not to get anyoneís hopes up but there are well over 100 ATCs taking up offers of early retirement over the next year or so. Just about all of these positions will have to be filled again within the next couple years.

Hi all! I've been following this thread for a few years now and applied in this recruitment campaign. Got an email this afternoon to say I have made it through to the online video interviews. I presume given some of you have already completed this, that they are batching the interviews in groups. Fingers crossed for us all!

Best of luck with the video interview. It's pretty similar to really any interview on behavioural experiences in the workplace so don't stress too much about the specifics of the role. With that batching interviews into groups, it might mean we don't hear a final result for quite some time then

Thank you! That's relieving to hear. I think that might be the case with the interviews - Hopefully that works in our favour!

When I first applied in November 2018 I didn't receive a call after the testing until March 2019. I saw on some other forums that people were offered positions in that period so hopefully we won't have to wait for too many batches before we at least have a verdict of successful or not.

I created an account just so I could let you guys know that I just received an email today from air services that I didn't make it to the online interviews after completing the latest aptitude tests. So for everyone else out there who is still waiting for a reply you might still be in it to win it!

It's been quite the ride following this thread.

Good luck everyone!
