Elephant Ear, I donít know if the process has changed this year or not however August/September it was initial psychometric and video and then on the day was group exercise, panel interview, individual exercise, clinical assessment and re validation of psychometric tests. If passing all of this on the first day , you are invited back for the sim assessment (767/747) in the couple of following days. If passing that then itís medical and reference check. Some may have been required to completely redo the psychometric test and/ see a psychiatrist.

All the best through the process and good luck

Had a mate get a cold call from someone at Qlink... (short of the long) comment to my mate ‘if applying to the QF group, you won’t get a position on a jet straight away’.

Reading between the lines, potential employees are going to have to call their bluff if they want to avoid getting put on a dash...

What will it take for terms and conditions to finally increase to attract more employees? (Tread drift I know sorry)

I's say a good percentage of QLink pilots (whether Captain or F/O), will leave and join Emirates, if there's no prospect for an advancement onto a jet within 5 years.
I'm aware person's have to weigh up the option of family life or the opportunity to fly a 777, i think most people will opt for the 777, and it's already happening.
People cannot sit at the back of an aircraft a play Second Officer for 9 years,serving coffee, but most do, at the end of the day, a real pilot wants to join the big league and
become a Captain on the 777 or A380 in lightning time, with a company that offers real opportunity.

The problem with QF mainline, they're paying 90 to 100K, for someone to be a Second Officer, should be only 60K.
If someone wants to be paid 90k, then QF should have a system, the person is a F/O on the Dash 8 for a month and the next month they can make coffee as a Second Officer.
Second Officer's role, inflight relief, how about the F/O getting out of his seat and letting the S/O do a real hands on take off or landing?
It won't happen.

They're my thoughts.

Sure, if the captain is getting 120...

Seagull: . None of your thoughts reflect reality.

My highly paid and well qualified S/Os don’t serve coffee. Their licences do not allow operation below FL200, nor does policy.
EK is not the viable career option that it once seemed. I won’t make you turn even greener by revealing actual S/O pay.

Agreed.

90k for an SO? Thatís about three months pay for a senior A380 SO.

Most QF SOs would be well north of 200K.

Its a pay cut to be a narrow body FO. Initially anyway.

Agreed- it would be nice to know what' going on. I know a few folk on the hold file and I don' know anyone with a June start date. It seems consistent that people are doing about 7 or 8 months on hold before getting the call. Hope you hear something soon!

How senior is the Ďaverageí QF S/O to attain those pay levels though?

With time to Wide Body F/O positions sitting at 15 years (second hand, happy to be corrected), and many rejecting the Narrow Body lifestyle, you would hope S/O pay is good to keep the guys at least financially on par with those who head elsewhere.

hey guest I can understand your frustration, I'm in the same boat. I've heard that they may be calling people for an August start date but nothing concrete.

So realistically what ballpark figure could a SO on the 787 bring home annually.

Except you don't 'bring home' super. At least not until you are 65ish & retire.
