Hi all,

I received an email late yesterday afternoon saying that they would now like to progress my application to the next stage, being medical and security check.

For those wondering, I attended my assessment day in Brisbane on the 08/09, but I have no idea at what point my references were checked, I was too scared to ask my boss.

Has anyone else from Brisbane heard anything yet? Or received the same email?

Good Luck to everyone still waiting!!

Was anyone from here at the Sydney assessment day yesterday? What a wonderful group of people! Everyone (assessors and applicants) were so friendly and the day was a lot of fun! Got through to the panel interview and although that could have gone better I think (was a little nervous and it showed), I am still hopeful. The day was a great experience either way. Good luck to you all

From my understanding of what was said at recruitment day, there are going to be more ground schools in November and December.

Hey Poppyseed,
Was wondering how you were notified of security and medical check, email,sms,phone and if you have had to pay for those yet? When would you be off to ground school as I heard they are doing one in November also.

Hey Mrskip, the training is quite intense and they do have very high standards on what they expect you to achieve in your exams. 3 weeks are spent on Service excellence and then you have roughly 3-4 weeks of eps, this is very intensive, so you have to make sure you study as you need to retain alot of information regarding several aircraft types. The training is a lot of fun also As for where they put up people for interstate that depends on availability usually its the Holiday Inn. Hope this helps

I truly doubt that the pass mark for exams would be 100%. Usually it is 80, although they will always say that you should 'strive for 100%', but it can't possibly be the pass mark. People would never get through ground school if it were. I know people who have flown for 20 years on heaps of different aircraft types and average in the upper nineties on their exams.
I just did a Qantaslink groundschool and the pass mark was 80%. I've flown before and still only managed one 100% on one of my exams. The rest in the upper nineties.

Catman,

I was at the Brisbane interviews on the 08/09, I got an email asking to do medical and security check 2 weeks ago. I really don't know what system they are using as I know some people are still waiting to hear after their references were checked.

umm, i'm not sure when my references were checked, i think about 2 weeks after the original interview. The medicals are done at the medical centre at the Sofitel in the city.

Don't be disheartened Catman - it can be a very long process and no news is good news Some people wait months while some wait weeks; it's just the luck of the draw sometimes.

I had my interview last week and my references were checked a few days later so it has been relatively quick for me so far (I am waiting to hear back now too). I am expecting a long wait though (the recruiters did warn us this was possible). It's alright - I see it as an opportunity to work hard to save money between now and then as I know my wages will be reduced significantly during training if I make it through

I wonder if being progressed to medical and security checks means you're in if you pass them poppyseed? It wouldn't really make sense to put you forward for expensive medicals if they weren't sure to hire you or not! Good luck

You did have a quick turn around, I will just have to wait and see what happens.

I wonder how much the medical is and do you pay it to the medical centre or MAM? and how much is the security check? If anyone knows it would helpful.
Thank you

Security Clearance $172.03
Medical - this cost may vary $200.00
