Thank you High Class Queen,
With the VRs being offered, it's hard not to worry that there's a surplus of crew and that there will be no work available, so glad to hear otherwise

Also, are you paid for GS?

The 80 hours is duty hours. Basically you are paid from sign on to sign off at QF- a good thing as some airlines only pay you for flying hours, not for sitting around etc waiting for flights that are delayed. And yes you are paid to do groundschool its about $500 a week from memory.

Hmmm I'm confused. I do about 140 duty hours at the moment elsewhere. Qantas casuals is offering only 80 guarenteed duty hours a month, yet the ad said you'd be working as many as 20 days a month??

80 seems very low.

Is that job full time? You do know these qantas jobs going are only casual right? On the 'contract C' its 20 days, but the minimum hours is like 4 per duty, so im guessing thats how they calculate the minimum hours as 80. Why would you want to leave a job thats giving you 140 hours?

Just to make it clear to everyone that 80 hours is the minimum they can give you. for example 80 hours is about $500 a week. plus meal break dta overtime etc. so if you get less than 80 hours youll still get payed for 80 hours. However youll usually project 110-130 hours in a month for work so never have to worry. everything is covered in training and that will go under the training allowance. no bond or anything like that. just think of it being a full time job really except you dont get sickleave and annual leave pay. does that make sense?

p.s as for the hours youll be making good money more or so the same as full time if not even more.

Danfromaus - because the job I have right now is shithouse. Sure it's 140 hours a month but the pay is woeful, the conditions are worse and the company is being run into the ground and the crew morale is very low because of all this. The sooner I get out of there the better. Hence why I am looking at MAM.

I work 20 days a month right now so I geuss as long as I still got 20 days a month, like is stated in the ad, that'd be fine, especially as you're likely to get 110-130 hours at the end of it all anyways like wigglewash said. And being casual I guess it leaves the opportunity to get a second job perhaps as well if I could work out my months enough.

So made it through to the panel interview-which went well (I think). Anyone know as a guide how many overnights the casuls get?

When I asked them, I was told that its mainly domestic but there are some tasman flights.

I think the tasman flights operated by short haul are now just the Queenstown service and the occassional substitute for Jetconnect services. The A330 SYD-AKL-LAX-JFK is Long Haul.

Short Haul crew fly the 737 to Noumea (turn around) and from time to time can have Asian trips if Long Haul can't fill them - I know Jakarta went Short Haul for a while earlier in the year.

I have a friend who's fulltime QF SH. She's been there 6 months or so and has done overnights in DRW and SIN that I'm aware of, but she doesn't seem to spend too many nights away from home

I think the current state of business for QF will only encourage more casual CC. Staff who they can use as is required according to how busy they are

Jay, I went last Mon in Melb and haven't heard anything yet. One of my references has been called.
Have you been to an interview or still waiting?

ADL base is getting the highest satisfation rating from our FF We're getting some pretty good flying, but thats as QD not MAM. Hope to see some of you soon, ADL seriously is the best base. Both amazing CSM's and CC, we're like a giant family. x

Heya

Ive been progressed to medical and security clearances, which costs like $350 for both. Has anyone passed these and then been rejected at the final review?

Cheers

Talking

Hey,

I've been progressed to the medical and security clearances, have many others heard back yet?

Also, how long does it take to hear back after the clearances?

Qantas are now recruiting for their domestic Sydney base (via MAM). I'm compiling my application and resume now. Good luck everyone!
