The Qantas Pilot careers website indicates this many.


Our recruitment process will involve a number of stages including;

Initial application
Psychometric Testing
Online / Telephone Interview
Assessment Centre which may include group activities, scenarios and a behavioural based interview.
Medical Assessments
Simulator Assessments
So after the assessment Center comes the medical and the sim. Is that an unreasonable list? I haven't personally looked at other airlines recently but I'd be surprised if QFs was hugely different to Cathay or VOZ?

I wonder if no JQ pilots have heard due to the great shortage of crew? No point interviewing us first as we won't be going across for a while anyway?

Didn't you get the email OM4? They are fixing the problem; a problem they created and ignored in the first place.

Density,

From what I can tell medically wise we need to bring:
-A completed PEHA medical form from a DAME.
-Completed Part 5 eye assessment form done by casa approved ophthalmologist (couldn't find form attached to email??)
-Drug and alcohol test results
-Blood test results, but these might be sent to the DAME as part of the PEHA.
- class 1 medical

Don't quote me though. Just my interpretation, so if I've missed anything feel free to correct me

Does anyone know if all the medical assessment items need to be done prior to assessment centre? There seems to be a bit of confusion amongst the applicants I've spoken to.

I agree that it is quite confusing. I attempted to ask via email but did not receive a response all week. Not sure how one is to get Drug & Alcohol Testing when they don't list approved providers. Also without a blood test form, what blood results are to be referred?
The PEHA medical pack says please bring all of those items to your medical appointment. As far as I can tell, the assessment day is not the medical appointment. Also no-where in the emails about the assessment day does it indicate these need to be done.

Yes you are correct. I heard today from a few people that have recently gone through the entire process. They all said disregard the medical stuff for the time being as you first need to do the assessment day. If you get the yes from that they will provide the request forms and list of D&A providers with more information as to what you need to do for the medical. So focus on the assessment day stuff first and foremost and good luck!

So its all been very quiet since Video Int and Aptitude Testing submitted......everyone I've spoken too hasn't heard a thing? We're all external applicants and all experienced Jet drivers.
What's everyone else thoughts?

Maybe they just didn't do well in the testing and video...some externals have progressed to the next stage. Just because you are currently flying a jet or work for a QF group airline, this doesn't guarantee you progression to the next stage. The testing / video has been done for a reason, and you are ranked based on the results. I suspect the ones who got progression to the next stage are the guys who scored highest.

1000+ applications for 170 positions over 3 years. Not every applicant is going to have the chance to attempt all stages.

It's been stated internally that qantas group pilots have priority. Strange that not a single JQ driver has heard anything.

Can you post the official statement so the rest of the world can see?

I second that MACH082. I'm JQ (previously Qlink) and I haven't heard of ANYONE in JQ getting the yes or no. Qlink there's been a couple....
Pretty sad state of affairs really
