Itís absolutely and categorically incorrect. I can name the three pilots who looked at every CV of those who met the minimum requirements and ranked candidates accordingly.

These pilots had no involvement in determining which candidates subsequently received emails inviting to online testing or the other email about group opportunities. That line in the sand was determined by Ďothersí.

That said, if you donít meet the requirements when you submit your online application, that aspect of it is automated and youíll receive an automated response. Perhaps that part of the process is being misunderstood?

other group people will be in touch apparently...
Have you thought about this wonderful opportunity to be a Dash 8 FO, or a Fokker FO on a substandard contract?

Thanks, but no thanks.

Who wouldnít want to be on a B scale* (or is that C?) on a Dash?

(*B scale can be avoided by simply completing a $10-20k flight test on a B200)

If a person gets into QF mainline as a pilot, they get in.

If they don't and are offered something else, whether it's only a Dash 8 position, they should take it.

Life goes on, there are other opportunities in aviation, with other companies world wide.

There's no need for people to get a headache, if they don't get accepted by QF.

QF have got their culture and way of doing things.

It would appear that last time everyone who met the requirements was offered testing, this time a human intervened first to offer testing to select individuals.
Why the testing acts as such an important primary tool to determine who is interviewed only will Qantas know, but its their train set.

From what I've heard and from reading this thread, a pattern is emerging where it seems many externals are being given options to be assessed for the group subsidiaries depending on how they go, or think they went, in the mainline testing. Perhaps there is going to be more of a focus to keep the morale up in the subsidiaries and get more internals progressing.

Whatever the plan or "focus" is right now. It will change soon enough. They can't help it.

A while ago the word on the street was that the hold file for the previous round of applications was expected to be empty by August. Does anyone have any information on if that is still the case, or what the timeline might look like now? Any idea how many remain on active hold?

I know of quite a few people still waiting on hold. Not sure if the August course has been filled yet. Anyone else know?

Sure. As long as they can live in Sydney on $59,000 a year.

Not sure where is $59,000 keeps coming up.

It's been done before elsewhere. F/O's would end up on $85K+ by the time you roll in allowances. Especially given how busy everyone is at the moment.

As at December 2017 there were about 150 on hold. Some of those were internals with indicative start dates out to December this year.

Since December ‘17 we’ve recruited at least 61 but I don’t have the numbers for how many started in Feb and I think there was a second course in April. So it could be 75-90 depending on how many started in those courses.

The demand for 2018 was supposed to be 200. Course size will need to increase to meet that forecast but training capacity remains very tight. I’d expect larger courses later in the year as more training capacity starts to comes online.

My assessment is that anyone going theough the process now (internal or external) is unlikely to get a start before Jan ‘19. I’ve no inside info on that though, just a best guess and reading of the tea leaves.

There was a small June course of about 6 or so.
July course might be larger as theyíre running both 78 and 330 ground schools.
I too heard some QLinkers have start dates out to December.

737 recruitment

Pardon me - I'm not a follower of this thread.
I heard jumbos are being used PERSYD because of a lack of 737 crew. Contacted People Services to see if I could lend a hand.
Was told the EBA doesn't allow direct recruitment onto the 7 3. Can anyone shed some light on the actual clause in the EBA?
Thanks

Lend a hand? Very generous of you. I'm sure that your future colleagues would welcome you with open arms.

Clause 17.1 if you really need to know.
