Thanks Hopeful!

I think I have a general understanding of the interview process, you know like making sure that you are team orientated and positive but not over the top, etc, etc, but its still very nerve racking...

Just a quick question... Do you know for sure if Team Jetstar get full staff travel benefits??? As in Oneworld aswell or just JQ/QF?

Hi Want2fly, I have a question about Melbourne dual base please. How much of the flying is out of Avalon airport? Would it be half & half? I am just considering what would be potential suburbs to live in 'if' I am sucessful through the interview process. I know you have to live within 90 mins of both airports. Any info on Geelong would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi HopefulCC, thanks, yes it is a dream of mine and I know that getting a phonecall offering me the job flying would be the most awesome thing. I am starting to get a bit nervous now but hopefully I will be fine on Monday. Best of luck to you for GS.

Tinks,
Im a Geelong bases girl.. have been for the last 7 years or so..
Geelong is a great place to live if you are going to be dual base.. You're looking at about 20 mins to Avv and 45mins to Tulla..
You can live in Melbourne and still somehow manage to have to travel further or longer to either MEL or AVV!!
Im all for Gtown.. althought at some point now I will prob move to Melb!

Gtown is cheaper tho to!!

Hope it helps somewhat

HopefullCC you are a GEM! Thanks for the info. Geelong looks like a lovely place out of the busy-ness of the BIG city. I looked somewhere on google and it said the drive from Geelong to Tulla was 1 hr and 5mins so if it is only 45mins thats even better. Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

am I crazy to consider?

I used to be JQ crew and I left a year ago. I miss it alot, and I am considering re-applying and going back under this new contract. Am I crazy to want to give it another go? I am worried that if I got back in, I will know what the old conditions were like, and be miserable cause I can never go back to the old conditions.

What do other present crew think?

To Go Back or Not to Go back

Star84, I empathise with you. The decision to leave flying is a hard one and not something considered lightly.
I was a flight attendant for seven years, five years being with Qantas group/Jetstar.

The lifestyle we know is a love/ hate relationship. We love the benefits we have left and the social aspect of the role, but the long hours and the expectations that are placed on us as crew members and individuals is sometimes too much to handle.

I often struggle with my decision to leave and ask myself.. "was it the right choice"?

Take some time, don't rush into any decisions , because this is about you and what makes you happy. Do some research and do what is right for you.

Good Luck

Help

Hi, Im new here.
I really wanting some direction, and a bit of hope.
I have wanted to fly forever. It always looked like a great way to earn money. From a kid on the long haul flights between the UK and Oz I would wish i could work on a plane. Anyway, parents never wanted me to, but 2007 I thought no I want to do it. So I got my RSA and my med cert, and renewed my passport. Now I guess im playing the waiting game. I have applied for everyone, and thus far only recived one email from jet star inviting me to apply for domestic Sydney. So my questions are:
1) will I have to wait long, now I have applied to hear from a friendly employment rep from Jetstar?
2) Where do domestic fly. Are they like Qantas, where short haul also so some international?
3) Can anyone give me hope that my dull 9-5 office job is coming to an end...?

Miss Positive,

Thankyou. Your post has helpted me streess a little less. I have to say that your jobs as cabin crew are amazing. I have a degree, and still dont earn what you guys are getting, and I am stuck in an office from 9 to 5 (its killing me). I sit on an over crouded train every morning and afternoon stressing about unfinshed work. I would kill to have your lives. And I hope to soon.

Give it a go!

Thank you Miss Positive.

I agree 100%. I've been with Jetstar for 3 years now and i really don't feel that hard done by. Matie 14, all i can say is do it. Go to the recruitment day and try to get into any airline you can. If you have always wanted to do the job then try the job. I personally love it. Yes i have seen bad changes in the past few years but some good ones as well. This is definetily the easiest job i have ever had and there is money to be made.

I have never met a flight attendant that doesn't complain. It comes naturally to us. We enjoy a good bitch and gossip and if it's not about the passengers it's certainly about the company and how hard they make us work!

Give it a go. If you don't like it, quit. Good Luck with the interviews. Feel free to ask any questions.

Exclamation

if you want to work with old farts with no staff benefits go to Qantas and if you want to have to clean the toilets and be away from all your family and friends all the time go to Virgin.
I laughed at this sentence!

However, on a serious note, we do have to give the toilet seats an occassional once over with an Isowipe but cabin crew earn a gross salary of approx $50-57k per year to do this (excluding untaxed allowances) and most crew have about 10-12 overnights per month and take home about $1,800-2,000 nett per fortnight.

Hi Rusty Fork, how did you go at the assessment? I went to the one on Monday 7th and got through to the morning tea on 9th and got through that and have the medical and criminal history check to do. It has all happened so fast I can't believe it. I am hopeful now that I make it all the way. Hope you went well Rusty.
Thanks to all the fantastic people on here that have been so helpful with sharing info and encouragement, I really appreciate it and will let you know how I go.

New to the recruitment process..

Hey guys,

I'm a 38 year old male that has recently received on the 8th of Jan an e-mail asking me to apply for cabin crew at Team Jetstar. I was recently an International Equities Trader but decided that I had done the time, changed cities and have just been sitting around self funded for the past few months.

I applied for DRW,HBT,MEL/AVV and SYD bases as cabin crew. What I would like to know is whether I should have ticked the boxes on the forms for F&B certificate as well as St Johns, both of which I have had for years but are out of date. I was honest and ticked "no". I fully intend to update these next week.

Would not having these updated, automatically exlcude me from the invitation process? Or should I just tick *yes* and make sure I have them in a weeks time? I have an excellent resume, reputation and am good with people - does age matter these day?

Your help would be appreciated. And good luck to all those who have been lucky enough to have an invite and good times to those who pass.

Cheers!

AN

AN Boy change them to yes and then tell the recruiters that you are doing them... Book in for the St Johns and show them the receipt.
