Indeed they do get a chance. I know some who did. All you guys who think the women of the world are stopping you from getting jobs are full of it. They’re not making any difference.

I love how my genuine question was turned around to look like some sort of sour grapes on my part.

I have never applied to Qantas and have no intention of ever doing so.

My interpretation of "Hold a current Instrument Proficiency Check (MEA) " is that IR has to be current.

Wake up, have a coffee, bang out the test, get your interview invite and Google methods to answer interview questions.

Done, costs you nothing.

There is quite a high cull rate (I was told 200/2000 got through last time) so I don’t want to dampen your enthusiasm but I’d suggest prep once you have an invite. The invite gives examples so you then know which style shl tests to practice. However if you want to practice I’d suggest numerical and verbal reasoning and patterns since you’ve already subscribed.

Good luck!

Anyone have a rough guess of when invitations for psychometric testing will be out? (Asking for a friend).

If you've sat for a SHL psychometric test in the last 12 months for the Qantas group, will you be required to sit another one? I understand Talent Acquisition keeps past records of your SHL tests? (Asking for a friend).

Some queries.
1. How does QF Cargo recruit pilots?
2. If one accepts a QF Cargo position as a FO does the promotion within cargo apply only to cargo pilots or can mainline pilots bid for say a command because they have a higher seniority number than say a cargo FO?
3. Does QF Cargo Pilots have their own EBA?
Would appreciate some answers.
Thanks

'Qantas Freight' is operated by the wholly owned subsidiary 'Express Freighters Australia'. It is a separate company for all intents and purposes to QF Mainline. They have their own EBA and "seniority".

Don't know how many, but all externals on hold will be assigned courses by June. That indicates to me that new hires are for July onwards.

Other than just saying they're great, can anyone explain what PATS actually does for you?
