Many of us have been waiting a month plus for the executive board review. Can anyone shed any light on if they get through all candidates in every sitting or there tends to be an overflow, thus delaying the process much further for the people who weren't reviewed? Cheers

I haven’t heard of any externals who interviewed from August this year and have a result yet. Those that completed the medical etc that is.

Vast majority of July internals and externals are still waiting to hear post medical etc. Some of both have heard, but the majority are waiting still.

Hi Keg, any idea why more than a few internals, all with well over 2 years at the group, and now being asked to do Sim assessments after being told they would not have to (and getting beyond the medical in the process)?
Why put decent girls and guys through this insanely stressful chook raffle?

Big assumption that this mob of basket weaving experts of the rainbow persuasion would even be competent enough to run a Chook Raffle !
Hence the slow motion train wreck that is presently balling up .

Were you an external applicant? They tend to give people outside the group priority.

A few ‘yes’ emails gone out in the last week for the hold file, anyone received a ‘no’ yet after completing everything??

Here is my advice from someone who has been through the process.

If you have been successful in getting an interview, you would have to be nuts not to do interview coaching (FDS/Pinstripe).

This is really a once in a lifetime shot at a decent job. Pay the $500 and come prepared. You would be shocked about how many people on my interview day (~25 people) didn't use it!

It's called 'playing the game'. Good luck all.

Can I get a "sim coach" for the six month checks too?

Yes you can pilotchute

I also highly recommend it, particularly if you suffer from simitis or performance anxiety.

We we all want to learn as much as we can, perform as well as we can and achieve the highest standard we are capable of.

We owe it to our passengers down the back, especially our cabin crew.

For a quick figure go with 6.5 (8-week) Bid periods per year @ 165 - 175hrs per BP and you'll get a starting figure. There'll be allowances and some overtime on top of that when you're away and the trip length will vary from 3-5 (USA/Asia) to about 10 days away (LHR) depending upon fleet and base.
Haven't been an junior S/O for quite a while so can't offer much on lifestyle other than to say I don't hear too many complaints.

This post from a couple of years ago talks 787 rates. Ironically it was addressed at your handle Hawk circle though it appears you may have erased previous posts? Add 3% for 1 Jul 18 pay rises.

Trip length varies widely between fleet and even within the fleet depending on the base.
SYD A380 S/Os can do 10 day LHR trips, 5-6 day DFW trips, 4 day LAX trips.
SYD A330 S/Os generally do 3-6 day trips. BNE A330 S/Os mostly 3 day trips but can do the 6 dayers.
SYD 744 S/Os mostly 4-5 days as they’re mostly out and back. A handful of 3 dayers too.
I’ve not researched the 787 S/O rosters.

Commuting to your base seems to be the biggest biggest gripe among S/Os.

Is there any Perth based 787 SOs that commute from the East coast? Just wondering whether it's realistic.

I have flown with a few that are doing the commute. Seem happy enough doing so except when they are on blank line and have to commute over to do standby duties.
