hey flyergirl,

I've heard that quite a few Jetstar employees have been recruited to the Perth base, can you verify this?

Perth base

Hi i have interview for perth base on 7 May, this Friday, any tips would be so helpful and appreciated. Are the group activities hard, do you have to write anything - do you know what the pay structure and flight routes. Would love to hear from you as they don't tell you much. Look forward to hearing from you

Hi Viipii

Did you have your references checked after the interviews and candidate event?

Sorry to hear that you missed out. Hopefully another opportunity comes up for you soon with Qantas or another airline

No, I haven't heard anything since the request to update resume in December 09. I think they have forgotten about us, or the files have conveniently gone missing. It's been 4 months and no update. I don't even know what to think now.

OMG...here we are waiting and there they are recruiting in melb for perth base. what the ....?

MAM - Melbourne Base

To all of those who attended the MAM reruitment day.....has anyone heard ANYTHING???

I emailed MAM directly and they replied with a generic....

Thank you for your email.
At this stage your application is still progressing through the necessary stages of the recruitment process. Unfortunately this process is taking us longer than we first anticipated.
Once we have a status update to provide you with we will be in contact.


I just cant believe we've heard nothing. There were only 18 of us who got through to the next stage so how long could it take?? It's been 5 weeks now and the funny thing is they contacted referees the very next day??

I dont mind if I wasn't succesful but it would be nice to know either way!! Is there anyone else out there who attended this day and has any updates?

Mam / Qantas Mel Dom Casual Cc

Hi ParAvion,

I got the same email as yours, and I made a follow-up two days ago and the reply as stated below:

Thank you for your email.

As per my previous email to you, once we have a stuatus update for your application we will be in contact. At this stage there has been no change to your application which is still progressing.

We ask that you please remain patient during this busy time.

Yeah i am guessing, maybe it's a NO for me. That's it we will try our luck on other airlines as well. Bye!

Angry

Hi Coffee or Tea,
It's just so frustrating, they should let us know one way or another!!
They seemed so eager and in a hurry to contact our references on the day but now...NOTHING!!
Oh well, all the best with the other airlines, I'm sure you'll be successful!!

RE: waiting

I would forget about it all and continue doing what you do now as if you hadn't applied. Otherwise it will only make you more fustrated by the day. And then before you know it, the golden call will come at the least expected time! Good luck

Unhappy

Got my no email after more than 2 years and at least 1000AUD investment in the whole application process

We appreciated the time you spent with us and would like to congratulate you on making it as far as you did through the recruitment process.
We were extremely fortunate to receive a large number of applicants and following a review of your application, we regret to advise that on this occasion you have been unsuccessful.

unsuccessful

Hi All,

I also received the unsuccessful email today after being successful through all stages one year ago, then due to the recession we were placed on hold.

Im cool with it though. However, it fascinates me that a business can operate with such a ruthless manner. Im guessing that in some way it will come back to Qantas, how, I do not know.......

I also learnt the other day that the new qantas domestic contract, crew are barely clearing $1400 per fortnight - on average earning $1350 per fortnight. Thats really not much and this IS reality....

I wish you all the very best with your applications

Another one bites the dust; (after waiting 10 weeks and making through to the candidate event...)

Thank you for attending the Qantas Domestic Pty Ltd Recruitment Day for the position of Flight Attendant. We appreciated the time you spent with us and would like to congratulate you on making it as far as you did through the recruitment process.

Please note that Qantas Group policy does not allow us to provide feedback to candidates. Whilst your application will remain active on our recruitment system for you to update as required, a period of 6 months from the date of this e-mail must elapse before you will be eligible to apply for future opportunities.

We would like to thank you for your interest in the Qantas Group and the time and effort involved in applying and participating in the recruitment and selection process. We wish you well in your future endeavours.

Kind Regards

Good Luck to those that are successful...not quite sure what they're after.

I have heard the opposite. Easily getting $2000 a week is what someone told me today.

A few months back at my interview I was told $2500 a fortnight was average.

Just wondering if any of you who have received emails this week had references checked?
I think there are a lot of people still waiting to hear from the March candidate event in Melbourne.
Thanks & good luck to everyone

$2000 a week, I dont thinks so!!!.. That would average your salary at over $100,000 a year... Wish it was correct but can assure you it isnt..
