perth base

hey guys,

In case anybody is stressing! A group of us attended the 6th/7th march assesment day! i think everybody that progressed to the the interview part of the day at the end then got invited to the candidate event which was held 2 days later! they rang us on the monday invited us and said theyd be checking references! A few people from the assesment day were then within a week offered a spot in the april groundschool! I guess they were just lucky! the rest of us are still waiting! no news is good news! i dont think anybody should stress too much a few of us have rung them up and they said they are swamped and they are still proccessing files and would let us know an outcome so either yes or no hopefully by tomorrow or early next week! from what i know most of the groundschool in april consists of people that were on hold for a year and a bit! then a few from the assesment days! heard they need alot of people so they are probably in the midst of sorting out who will be in the groundschools after the april one! everybody keep in mind they are recruiting big time for perth, melbourne and sydney so they are VERY busy! these things take time i guess! Good luck though! i know the feeling of wanting something really bad

Hi flapping,

I think there is hope for anyone who has made it past the panel interview either recently or over a year ago. But I think we're all on the "long list", so to speak. (Though I'm just guessing at this and could very well be wrong).

I feel for you. It must be so frustrating and dissapointing after waiting so long.

Don't stop hoping though

MAM casuals?? Can you help?

Hi there,

I have just been given my recruitment date for Mam casual... However, being previously full time cabin crew with an airline, I am wondering what rights you have as a casual...how many hours a month? Is it flexible?

Qantas Domestic Perth

Attended the candidate event in Perth last night. There was only about 16 there which was suprising. Overall it was quite relaxed. Will just have to wait by the phone now - waiting waiting waiting!!!

do you think that was also an "interview" session to say yay or nay to the applicants or an evening to let you know what you're in for when you join?

candidate event....

Hey Guys,

Last year when I had my interview, the day went for around 5 hours!

Last year we had the candidate event in the same day as panel interview etc. We had a presentation on qantas domestic for about 45mins, then we had group tea and coffee/biscuits for like 45mins towards the end of the day. Why they are doing this seperate now I do not know........

For all of us who have been waiting a year, surely they would had let us know by now if we were unsuccessful......I think it would be a bit ruthless to reject us after this long.....

Also, about he pay thing, we ALL know that the pay is realistically average. Do yourself a favour everyone and only accept this contract if you are truely passionate about flying, customer service and qantas. If your worried about the money thing, It may not be the right move for you and could find yourself quite miserable.

Goodluck to everyone.

QD Medical

Hi Everyone,

I was one of those who were waiting on hold from QCCA interviews from 2008.I had previously gotten through panel, reference checking, medical and security and was in executive review when placed on hold. A few weeks ago I was emailed and asked to attend a candidate event. It was the same as described already, they thanked us for our patience over the last 2 yrs! and then went into details about QD then 1 group activity where they were obviously marking us and then that was it and we were told we would hear within 2 weeks. No re-interview. Just a note to those waiting for the last year or 2 they were people at the candidate event who had not even had references checks or medicals last time and had only been through panel interview so people from all stages were invited.

2 days later both of my references were checked again. Then 2 weeks later I received a call to say I was successful and had an offer of employment on the condition I passed another medical which I obviously excepted! I re-sent off my ASIC forms and money order for security clearance but now just have to re-do the medical. Im not sure if I passed last time but assume I did.

I think its great that they now give you the offer of employment before medical so you dont waste time or money since they are quite pricey!

Sorry for the long post. Hope it clarified some stuff and gave hope to those still waiting from 1 or 2 yrs ago! It has been a long wait but persistence and patience has obviously paid off. Im so excited!

Also, Congrats Col!

Missym x

QD Perth

So I received a call yesterday before the candidate event advising they would be calling my references. A few people at the candidate event last night already had their references checked yesterday. None of my references were called today so I'm not sure whats happening. I wouldve thought getting this far would be a positive sign??? I hate the waiting game

Hi everyone,

I was interviewed last year and was on hold until early this year. I was contacted about a week ago, after attending a candidate event, and am in the April ground school!!

Not really sure what the procedure is as it seems every person is different when it comes to the recruitment process. Some people have already done their medicals but weren't contacted to join the april ground school while others who didn't bother replying to emails for updated information, have had their references checked.

Try not to compare your individual situation to other candidates as it makes it even more frustrating.

looking forward to meeting my ground school!!

QD part-time

sorry am new to this - does anyone know if you can go part-time at QD. I would like a part-time cabin crew position because i am a mum. I know this is probably impossible and i would have to work full time first but just wondering how long it would take to go part-time.

I don't know about QF specifically but generally part-time positions are very sought after and not many are offered. It can take several years to get a part-time position. They do not recruitment for part-time directly, you have to start full-time and then go on a wait list.

If you are a working mum it might be better for you to apply to Jetstar because they only do day trips and that will solve part of the problem for you. You might also want to consider a casual position as then you may get less hours than a full-time load during certain times of the year.

Sorry I can't give you better news, but these are the facts all working mums in aviation have to face.

For those who are applying to ' QD ' ....please do not call it QCCD. There is no such thing as QCCD and there never was ( Pls take note RollzRoyce ! ). There is QCCA ( Long Haul ) but if you were to refer to the name in the interview or candidate event please use the words ' Qantas Domestic ' or ' QD ' . A little tip for you
