I can confirm that’s incorrect. I still know many internals and externals from the 2018 hold file with no start dates

This is completely incorrect.

Likewise, so definitely not true. A number of externals however, who applied in March, have been given start dates from October onwards.

Sorry, let me rephrase that. From what a mate told me, I believe all EXTERNALS on the hold file have been given dates. If there are still externals who haven’t heard anything, probably worth getting in touch again. I can’t imagine why they would overlook them in favour of recent candidates.

Internals I imagine unfortunately won’t be moving far while you’re all understaffed.

Meow! I feel like a bit of noob.
Relevant to this thread, some externals who had a type/base preference have been put to the back of the queue which may be the reason for a delayed start date. The new hold file holders have been given dates as early as August

shows how beneficial it is being at a Qantas subsidiary If the goal is mainline

Until all of the guys in the cheap seats realise what’s going on (probably did that a few months after the ‘we’ll get to you soon’ email) they will start resigning and leaving for Atlas, Spirit, Uppercumba Airways ect…

Mainline progression was always about dangling a carrot so pilots stayed. Once people start leaving they will start giving internals interview…

After months of Stand down and pay freezes, hiring externals over internals is another slap in the face to employees…

I can confirm that there are still 2018 externals happy to take on any base awaiting an official offer of employment. I was also verbally given position expectations back in 2019 and also Feb 22, still waiting, until you have an official offer don’t get excited and even then after the last few years I would still be dubious. It’s been a tough few years and it’s not behind us yet.

I understand that Qantas has been offering PER 787 and SYD A330 to new hire SO.
Would anyone be willing to share recent rosters, or indicative patterns (tour lengths, days off, standby days) to help get an understanding of the difference between the types/bases?
Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure you don’t get a choice. They will just assign you.

I'm aware of externals being offered a choice, and have heard that the HR team are saying the same during interviews.

HR will literally say anything. Their KPI is bums on seats. These people are dishonest and untrustworthy.

Not sure what the benefit would be in lying. You'd find out pretty quick if they didn't offer a choice...

As in “you can have A330 Sydney starting on X date, or 787 Perth starting on Y date, which would you prefer”

As in “You can’t bid for a particular aircraft or base, however, if you would like to put a preference for 787 Perth, we will do our best to accommodate”. Then, after you select Perth, your letter will state “congratulations, you are on 330 Syd”. That kind of preference. 🤣

Heard of that in the past but if it’s changed for the better, that’s great news!
