I noticed today the link for the FO on the airbus is no longer on the careers website. It was a few days ago. Any idea when it will be back up so people can apply?

I got a phone call out of the blue yesterday from Jetstar. The girl on the other end said she has my resume from 2016 in front of her and wanted to know how I've progressed since then, and that I could hopefully be ready to go to NZ as FO on the Dash 8's by now.

I told her I left the industry shortly after I sent that resume in and so my hours would be about the same. Then she said to keep the number she called me on because if I was interested to get back in the industry, she'd like to hear from me!

This went on for a couple more minutes and every time I said I was long gone she kept pressing the point to call her if I'm keen to come back. Must be desperate.

They changed the job description recently and I emailed back the person I did my JQ phone interview with to see if I needed to reapply. She mentioned I should greatly consider NZ Q300 position with "Rapid Upgrade Opportunities" in the meantime...

Definitely desperate

Just got the email putting me on the hold file last week.
Any ideas how long the current wait is?
From previous posts it seems the average A320 FO salary is A$130k plus super, give or take? What are the kiwi FOs getting these days?
I have NZ as my preference but my Aussie missus may be changing her mind. Any help on comparison between NZ and Oz would be appreciated.
Cheers

Be wary of any option to join the NZ operation with a 'leave with out pay opportunity' to get back to oz. I've seen people do this and then get stuck in NZ with very little real opportunity to get back.
Yes there have been a COUPLE of people do it but it's extremely unusual. In a nutshell, I wouldnt take an NZ position unless you want to remain in NZ.
Oz -->> NZ however seems to be no problem.

GA Driver, can you expand a little on the 'leave without pay opportunity'? Is this in reference to moving to QFA and other operators?

Not so much QF, but JQ aus. Plenty of F/Os going to QF, but it isn't leave without pay, they will be resigning from JQ entirely.

I was referring to people being offered NZ positions that started immediately or could wait xx months for an Australian position. When they asked if they could transfer back to Australia if they were employed in NZ, they were told they could take LWOP from NZ and join the Australian operation when positions came up . This has never really happened. I know of 1 and it was compassionate grounds and don't think it was even LWOP.

If that's not happening the other option is to resign, then go through the entire recruitment process for JQ Australia again?

First things first...congrats on making the hold file Jee_Ray.
I met a couple of chaps recently in HKG for interviews that have been on active hold with Jetstar for an Oz position since Jan/Feb this year. Neither has had an update as to what the situation is atm even after contacting JQ.
2 out of the 3 have accepted a job here, so I guess 2 less on the list in front of you. All the best.

Thanks Littlebird.
The HR woman I was speaking with said said pretty much the same. Could be waiting a long time for an Oz position.
Decided to go with NZ and have been offered a job. Endorsement next month and start date beginning of Jan.
They made it clear that transferring to Oz would be difficult if not impossible so be sure of where you want to go. Seems to be more opportunity in NZ at the moment though.

A320 sim spots are hard to come by at the moment, so long delay getting people in for the initial type rating

Hi guys

Completed the final interview process with Jetstar in Melbourne mid Febuary. I was informed during the interview that I would be notified in the coming week.
To date have not received any feedback. Can anyone advise how long Jetstar take to confirm that you have passed the selection process, or do you think I have not meet the cut and they have not bothered to contact me.

They are usually really quick, it depends on when they have the scheduled meetings but normally anywhere from 1-4 weeks. If you haven't heard in another week or two, contact them. They are quiet receptive to communication.

Jetstar's recruitment processes are like the rest of the airline, in a constant state of chaos and always understaffed and under resourced. I would only worry if you have received notification that you are unsuccessful. I think Av91 must be a Jetstar angel otherwise she would know that whenever you ring a phone in Jetstar you are greeted with an answering machine and emails go unanswered. As for being quite receptive, tell that to the cadet who was called to HO at his own expense for "harassing" a certain person in power over a possible start date for the 320 endo.

Thank you for the reply Aviatrix91 / Lookleft. Hopefully a positive outcome in the next few weeks.
