Have many internals heard back about face to face interviews yet?

I hope too that I got it in on time. I've been following the recruiting page for 7 years now and checking a few times a week recently... The one week I'm overseas and it gets sent to my junk folder where it sits for 30 hours. Raced home from overseas and got everything ready... finished the last one at 1705 Sydney time. (I'm in Perth)

FRQ I was thinking the exact same thing.

You would assume as long as you have an answer selected, it will automatically take that as your answer when the time expires! (without you needing to hit submit)

Straight from Talent Q website.....

In this scenario (not clicking submit before time expires) you do not need to worry as your answer will be submitted. If you select an answer so that it appears in the 'Selected answer' box but do not click 'Accept and Continue', the assessment system will submit the answer on your behalf if the time runs out. Therefore by making a selection, this will count as your submitted answer.
Thank God because I did this for at least half a dozen.

It will be interesting to see how many of the 200 odd internal applicants they end up taking. If they only take a small percentage, that sends a message to everyone looking to get a job at any of those group companies and that is, don't bother if you want to get into mainline. On the other hand though if they take a high percentage, it might stop them bleeding pilots, plus anyone wanting to get into mainline will know it's looked favorably on to be in the group.

You must be part of "the group" trying to boost your chances.

Link is 'releasing'
6 a month (= 9 per 6 weeks) to mainline. Cadets are still on courses until April I believe...?
And are apparently about to loose 2 per month (3 per 6 weeks) to Jetstar.

Totals are 12 per 6 weeks leaving qlink alone (internally) but link are only replacing 12 per 6 weeks ATM.
Link is already down after EK and CX recruitment drive.
Therefore they are short of pilots.

Qlink are soon to increase their new hire rate to 16 per 6 weeks (8 per fleet) so net a increase of 4 per 6 weeks provided no one else leaves to EK CX or heaven forbid QF.

I THINK the regular internal plebs going to QF will replace the cadets (9 per 6 weeks) come April-


MY CONCLUSION;
If your after a regional career, now is your time, there is plenty of movement ahead.
QLINK IS NOT, AND NEVER WILL BE, YOUR SHORTCUT INTO MAINLINE.

It'll stand you in good stead for various times during your Qantas career.

OM4, you'll get a fairer chance now than at any stage in the previous two decades. You can always resign from within the group and roll the dice if you think that will accelerate your placement into QF.

Yes I suppose you are right Keg. It's certainly a move in the right direction.

Has anyone (internal or external) received an invite to the assessment centre yet? It appears that the sim assessment will be in the 76 if the booking sheet is anything to go by. First assessment just over 2 weeks away now...

Yep. My kids got one. Sure, they would just love being a F/O on the maggot, after a command on the B787. And get a white hat, thrown in with the steak knives. QF must be seriously short of drivers, if they believe JQ Skippers are tempted to go to the bottom of the QF woodpile, just for the honor. In their dreams.

Or perhaps it is just Qantas using the MOU to make an offer to pilots that may be interested. I would have been more disappointed if they had not made the positions available.

The advertisement of MOU vacancies to JQ pilots to take up a protected seniority number and a 737 F/O slot is a completely separate issue to the EOIs available to ALL group pilots to take up a S/O position on the bottom of the QF mainline seniority list.

Perhaps Ida down should talk more to his kids because either Ida's understanding or his kid's understanding of what is currently on offer is distinctly lacking.
