I know applications are open until 18th Nov, but has anyone been offered the aptitude testing yet? I have heard nothing since the application.

I received the aptitude test 2 days after applying and then an invitation to an assessment day 1 week later.

Been about 4 weeks for me. On the bright side I guess I have longer to prepare if I do get the call.

By assessment do you mean, the skills assessment, or the stage 3 group interview?

I mean the assessment day where we do a group activity, panel interview and sim ride.

Does anyone know if Melbourne base as a new hire is possible? Does it need much seniority to bid for. Some info on rosters for melb/Sydney would be appreciated

Sydney and Melbourne are the bases where most newbies end up in aus, Auckland for NZ hires.
Sydney more so at the moment. Usually 3-6 months wait if youíre unlucky enough to get the wrong one. if you want one of the other bases, ADL, CNS etc can take a year or more. People do commute but itís pretty tough on a JQ roster and with a 6month staff travel wait, also expensive.

Is it still the case that JQ donít pay until you have completed your A320 TR?

Yep, your start date is your Head office visit followed by groundschool.

How sought after is a Perth base and how long could one be looking to transfer if based on the East Coast initially?

Cheers

Perth is typical WA. People go there and then wait to die.... So little movement from the captain front, f/o a LITTLE more as they usually realise a command will come up there never. You will generally get the base youíre after, but itís all just a waiting game as has been said above.

Any other base youíll have to wait 12 months if youíre unlucky. Perth atleast 5 years from what Iíve seen.

Thanks mate, do you know where they are conducting the TR and/or how long the TR it is from start to day one with the company?

It depends, many MANY TRíings have been completed in Southampton (known to be a Rubbish endorsement) the last few have been done at Ansett and also AirNz. It would just depend where the availability is. How long? Usually 8-12 weeks, but mine isnít recent, so that could be a bit off nowadays. Obviously a bit less if thereís no travel to the UK.

Do you guys think the EBA negotiations and the possible disruption over Christmas will have an impact on hiring and training?

It will have no impact whatsoever. The people looking after the hiring and training are different to the people doing the EBA negotiations. Never assume that JQ use a coordinated strategy to be energetically efficient!

Does anyone have a gauge on the usual wait time for feedback following an assessment day? I am quickly wearing out the refresh button on my emails.

Back when I applied it was anywhere from a month to a few months. For the new/recent applicants Iíve heard as few 2-10 days... Itís all over the place.
So are their start dates, as Iíve heard Ďearly 2020í and have also heard Ďafter May 2020 due NZ closuresí...

Sorry I canít give you more

Until they tell you no....usually itís at least a 6 week thing. But if itís a no, itís pretty quick.
