What's the current story for Level 1's?


Has anyone who applied for level 1 actually progressed beyond the video interview stage?

the current rumour seems to be 4 weeks notice for courses, so if i course started this week and from memory they are every 6 weeks the next lot of calls id expect to be about a fortnight away.

This is the most news that has reached the forum for a long time. Cheers.
Most I know are DE, I only know of one trainee but not saying there aren't more. Also the guys from UNSW are getting starts.

If you're on hold the call will come. The market is heating up and there will be opportunities for everyone to jump up a few rungs quite quickly, don't let qlink be your only option.

So I applied for the Level 1 Trainee FO position way back and 3 weeks ago did the psychometric testing and then last Tuesday got the invite for an assessment and sim session in Sydney for next week. I'm confused as I thought there was a skype interview before the Sim session (not that I'm complaining) but has Q-Link recently changed their recruitment process?
And has anyone used Pinstripe for preparation and are they worth what they charge?
Cheers in advance

No Skype interview, straight to the panel and group test. Didn't use Pinstripe and got through so it's up to you.

Did anyone get an email earlier in the year asking for an update on details and whether or not you are still interested in the program (as they were moving to a new online system)?

I got this email and promptly replied but have not received anything further and no longer have a way of logging in to view my application as the system has changed and I have not been sent any new login details.

Slightly off topic but better than starting a new post.
My daughter has decided to join the profession but does not have year 12 maths or physics.
Is this stil a requirement for Qantas link? I know it used to be but can no longer find it on the "required qualification" part of the website.
If it is required I believe there is a company that offered an accelerated course specifically for this.
Could someone drop me the contact.

Cheers.

May not be the right place for this but taking a shot if anyone has any info for me please.
Would someone be able to tell me what the interview for jetstar regional NZ is like, i.e
What type of questions get asked?
What the pay for a new First officer is?
Time to command upgrade?
Thanks

Heard from a source inside Qlink that they dont have any further courses planned? Is this due to lack of avalibity to run courses...last I heard they're still short.

Not enough training staff or potential employees?

The current issue is sim training resources. From what I've heard QL doesn't have enough sim trainers so new recruits are completing ground school and are then placed on training reserve waiting for sim slots.

I wouldn't be disheartened if you haven't got the call up yet. Latest is 20 pilots every 6 weeks. So eventually they'll get to you if you're on the hold. A lot of FOs and Captains are moving on either overseas or to other operators within Australia.

QL is a good job with great people, it is an awesome workplace for anyone who wants to progress their career so remain patient and I'm sure they'll let you know once your number is up.

Hi mate, did the people you know who got called have Brisbane as their first preference?
