Happy to be proven wrong.
Mate I’m a complete dumbarse with a degree in beer drinking only, yet I managed to get in. So there’s another theory down the drain.

haven’t heard of a ‘GA types’ getting the nod since circa 2018.
in fact my internal friends starting recently with thousands of hours jet time are telling me they are the least experienced on their course!

'GA types' definitely are getting the nod

SHLis the provider, have 2 weeks to complete. Would recommend job test prep for aptitude and EAT for interview work/write up.

Does anyone know what version SHL test they use?

from Jobtestprep. There are two versions of the test:
  • SHL Verify Interactive - 24 questions in 36 minutes
  • SHL General Ability Non-Interactive (multiple choice) - 30 questions in 36 minutes

Is it true that if you're at Jetstar your chances of getting into Mainline are lower or is that an old wives tale?

Wonder how many are still left on the hold file after this round of calls?

Very low, compared to last time there were substantially less applications, considering the absolute bull**** excuses they culled many people last time I understand why people have zero confidence.

Seeing how many people have rejected starts at mainline to stay at Jetstar it's a wonder why they are acting this way.

How come there would be less chance if there were not as many applications?

I don’t think you did…… HR were probably wondering why did this pilot leave the group…. And now they want back in….

Don’t be perturbed… have another crack when you can. 1000 total training courses next year is the number they’re now spruiking…. Mainline only
