At my level 2 assessment, many of the guys exceeded the DEFO minimums many times over...

We had guys on caravans, chiefys, kingair's and the rest of the gear flying up north.
Why is there any need to hire UNSW low experienced pilots?

You are correct Flyboy. Cadetships were introduced on the UK because there is NO GA and the LCCs make money out of it. Australia does NOT need cadetships and in the US the Jetstar one would be illegal!

Flyboy, it comes down to $$$. They can pay low hour fresh CPL's less and keep them for longer. The employer can dictate how and when they get their command hours for upgrades (ie. REX).

Having said that though, I do believe they are looking for a good mix of experience throughout at all levels.. So I wouldn't expect it to be long term full-time strategy.

Hi all, quick question. When does Qlink HR reopen? got an email mid December informing that I had progressed to the online phsyc testing and would shortly receive a link to complete the testing....alas no link was ever sent. A follow up email to Q resulted in no answer. Anyone else had similar issues? Cheers.

From my view at QCC saw around 8-12 I'm guessing, Qlink pilots starting out heading over to 148. No idea if direct or trainee 1 or 2. Lots of young guys

Not sure if it has been said before, but those waiting for links for testing or online interviews need to check spam and junk mail folders as they quite often end up there.

Seems the link looks very dodgy to most mail service providers.

Has anyone actually got a "thanks but no thanks" email after completing the online video interview, or is the lack of any form of reply to be taken as such?

I did the video interview back in October and haven't received a reply of any kind.

^^^agree. Maybe reapply?
Or keep hasselling HR? A lot of people have been getting strange/weird responses? I imagine HR are very overwhelmed by the number of applicants for Qlink and mainline?

I did the interview in June '16 and didn't get the email for pysch testing until September. After the pysch test, I heard back about a week later for the assessment centre. From when I put my initial application in to my assessment centre it was 7 months; let's say they don't do anything 'fast' around there

It's a shame they're putting through UNSW people over level 2 trainees...

Word from HR last week was that level 2 trainees won't see much movement until about mid-year sadly (August onwards).
Any word on the level 1 trainees?

There will be no movement for level 1 trainees in 2017. Your best bet would be to build hours and update to direct entry. Even level 2's will struggle getting a spot with the calibre on the hold file.

Are there even any Level 1 trainees who have been interviewed?

Where did you get your info from Fuji? Are they moving away from mixing the experience levels per course? Or still weighting the mix towards mostly DE candidates?

I'd be interested to find out how many are in the hold file and how many there are from each recruitment stream?

I highly doubt it. The training pathway has not even been constructed yet.
