mam interviews

hi i was at the recuritment day on the 8th september in Brisbane , and it is a very relaxed day i thought firstly you go at fill in a peice of paper with some details like mobile number etc then you all get called into sit at tables and do two lots of group activites, then you will go for a lunch break and will receive a sms if you have been successful to go through to the panel interviews, then the panel interviews you get a breif slideshow on the role and the conditions of the job,then you give in all ur paperwork resume, all that jazz and then you have your panel interview and thats the day in a nutshell you will be fine it's really straight forward. Good Luck

They also have an assessment day on the 4th October in Sydney I believe. DKS278, your best bet is to register online with MAM if you haven't already, and as quickly as possible. They have already had a few assessment days in Sydney and places fill up quite quickly.

To sammay, thank you for that information! How did your day go - did you hear back from MAM? What sort of questions do they ask you at the panel interview, are they hard? Would I be on the right track in thinking that it would be questions like, "how would you handle a drunk or upset passenger", "what are your weaknesses" or "what would you do if you saw a colleague being rude to a passenger?".

I read that you get a minimum of 80 hours per month and that some of those may include short haul international, but I can't remember where I read that as I wasn't able to find that information yesterday. It was possibly far back on this thread.

Questions are more focused on your past history. Questions that I had were: Tell us about your work history and hobbies. How can you provide premium customer service to our customers, have you ever gone over and beyond for a customer, if so what did you do. What frustrates you in your current role. Wwhy do you want to work for qantas as a casual FA.

Ready to fly again

Hi all,

Long time reader, first time poster.

Can anyone tell me if they have been invited to a BNE MAM assessment day in the near future ? Have relocated to BNE for my partners job and I'm really missing the cabin crew lifestyle.

Cheers

Talking Brissie Panels

Oh my god! My references were also checked last week and still no news...
Seriously going mad! Apparently Ground School starts some time in October (which is in 3 days) and I'm supposing we still have to pass medicals before (if successful)??

I know it's nerve wracking, but hold in there and be patient. Recruitment in the airline industry can be a very long process (I know of people who have waited a year and up for the golden call). A week or two, or even a month or two, isn't that long to wait in comparison.

Having said that, my recruitment day is still yet to come, so I'm sure being patient is a lot easier said than done

There are at least two other recruitment days for Brisbane left - the last one that I can see so far is on the 18th October. Sounds like there will be more than one ground school in the coming months (unless the ground school is at the very end of October).

adelaide and waiting as well

Hi all,
Had my assessment day beginning of september in Adelaide
I to am awaiting the further steps like all other bases it seems- have had both references checked.

The process started of real quick with them contacting my references the very next day after the assessment centre? 3 weeks later - still waiting....
I wouldn't be to worried guys, it seems like all september related assessment centres have progressed to the same stage (all refs checked). Once they have completed all centres for this month and completed ALL reference checks for these candidates, then they will move all applicants forward together for medicals etc - just makes sense if they did it this way.

They are also VERY busy, just chill out and enjoy the process and save extra money to assist you for the 7 weeks training (you are paid only a basic wage during this training).....

Was anyone else at the Adelaide assessment day or anybody heard of anyone that has progressed through to the medical stage this month?

It seems everyone here that has gone to this stage had their interviews in August.....

Has anyone had the unsuccessful email yet?

Good luck to all and be patient
