It has been said elsewhere on this thread that experience doesn't count for anything with QF. This is absolutely true for the assessment day stage. However assuming the aforementioned rejection letters are being received prior to psychometric testing, it looks as though they're looking for resumes indicating previous jet airliner experience this time round, only because there's so many expat candidates from Asia and the Middle East with that sort of experience. There's guys and girls with a lot less time than 7000hrs being called up for testing but I think you'll find they have wide body jet FO or SO experience.

[QUOTE. There's guys and girls with a lot less time than 7000hrs being called up for testing but I think you'll find they have wide body jet FO or SO experience.[/QUOTE]

Yep. I know of a few who went to Cathay 2 years ago with 300 hours total time. 18 months as a SO and now getting into mainline. Meanwhile the 7000 hour regional turboprop captains arenít given the opportunity to sit aptitude testing. Makes you wonder.

I want to know how these CX SO's who only stayed for 2 years are getting out of their bond.

In the example given the SO joined CX with 300TT so defiantly no ATPL.. Non ATPL holders are actually required to stay for 5 years, not 3.

Unfortunately, the industry is rapidly going the way of no integrity from both sides of the fence, whether management or employee. Well done to those that want to further their career I reckon. Airline management will do their best to undercut and undermine staff at the drop of a hat, which is inspiring a whole generation of new employees that hold no allegiance to a company anymore. Thatís the way they want it so you have to play them at their own game.

QF don't specifically hire from anywhere- they only take pilots with an Australian CPL or ATPL at this stage.

Donít feel too bad , I got a no as well today after the psych tests .
21000 hours 10 000A3303000B777 international command .. maybe too qualified but not up to scratch mentally I guess.
But worth a shot to see how far I got

Have you thought of places other than airlines? I note corporate jobs are being advertised - not something readily seen in in AUS previously.

Iíve heard that the first phase of cutting applicants is done entirely digitally? Zero human input when CVís are sent in and online applications completed.
Anyone know if this is correct?
