Hey guys,

I had my Bne base interview on the 14/11 but because I was in Melbourne I went to the Mel interview.

My references where checked the following week and on the the 14/12 I received my medical and security check email.

I had my medical on the 23rd of December and now my fingers are crossed that I receive the call

Anyone from Bne base can let me know what trips they frequent?? Or any other Mel or Bne base get there calls yet??

DollyK, there is a Qantas UK Wannabees Forum, but it hasn't had a post for a long time. Maybe re-post your question there and bump it back up. I'm not sure about recruitment in that base. They did some this year and they can't go over a certain amount of crew due to our agreement. However, there are alot of QCCA up there on 2 year contracts that are about to expire, so who knows? If they come back to Oz and don't get replaced the base might be short.

It's a fun day. Don't prepare it's not what you'd think. Just relax and be yourself or it will show. Be very presentable as we had people in syd who looked liked they just rolled out of bed.

It's fun, you meet people, do some group things and go to lunch. The get an SMS if you're successful to go to panel. A long but good day. Don't reherse answers it will throw you off maybe.

Mam recruitment

It may be different from when I did it...

Get there EARLY. Like 8:30ish for a 9am start.

9am - Everyone gets name stickers
- fills in a form
-gets a height check, hand in documents

9:15 - brief introduction of assesors

9:15 - 11-12(ish...we were running overtime) group activities.
Our activities were - 1. we had to plan a group holiday and we were given pieces of paper that said something that we wanted to do and we had to compromise as each person had something different.
Then, with about 10 minutes left, they give us more info that basically ruins all the plans and we have to fix everything quickly.

2nd - you're a photographer, and you have to organise a shoot. You get a list of possible people to use and an attribute or problem about them and you have to pick who and why.
And then with 10 minutes, again, they give you more info about the people and you have to scratch everything and start again.

Really not much you can do to prepare for that.

After the group interviews you do a short essay and write a bit about 3 qualities of yourself that would make you best suit the position.

Then everyone breaks for lunch and waits for the text.

After lunch if you make it back!

You watch a presentation about the position that covers pay, conditions...everything!

Then you wait again while everyone does their panel interviews.

I was last to go and I had to wait over two hours!


Tips

-Try and talk to everyone - small talk is fine and you need to appear approachable and friendly to assessors.
-Dress the part!
-Don't lead too much, but don't be quiet. You want to show that you can lead and follow a leader.
- Be there EARLY. If you can't be early to an interview, how can they expect you to be early to work?

And yeah....have fun. It's a really good day!

Would you go to work with your hair down? (As cabin crew, of course)

Always dress the part!

Perth recruitment

Hey

Pretty new here read heaps of previous post and congrats to all those who have got it.

I haven't heard or seen anything here about Perth recruitment day do I thought I would post something. Just went for my recruitment day on the 18th of January got through first and second phase and waiting for reference checks I think... Well haven't heard anything so I assume it is that

Guess I just have to sit and wait for some information whether if I got into the next phase

If anyone else here went to the Perth recruitment day please share how far in the process you are at

We're all playing the waiting game

Who knows how long it will be. I'm saying up to 3 weeks to hear anything. My refs were checked 3 days after the interviews. So who knows.

Are you all waiting on hearing about casual positions or fulltime? I heard they were never hiring fulltime again!
