Qantas Domestic - Wannabes & Recruitment

I know this has pretty much been clobbered to death in the other threads, however Qantas Domestic Pty Ltd has begun accepting applications for a PER basing, with them closing in only 10 days. So, it looks as if it is definately going ahead. No word on pay or conditions as yet

hey i hope you can help me! I applied for the job but i wasnt able to upload a photo! It kept coming back saying my photo file was too big! I tried everything, I copied and pasted the photo into word and notepad and all sorts but nothing worked! So in the end I just sent my application without the photo.
have you applied for the job? Im really interested in what the conditions/pay will be like. I have a feeling that being Qantas they will only be hiring casuals. but hopefully I am wrong...

Try opening a new document in word and insert the picture as opposed to copy and paste. Worked for me.

Gday 1flighty1,

The positions are permanent full time. I haven't applied but there are other QF Crew on here that probably would be able to answer your questions. The long haul QCCA Crew got 25% less then the QAL crew. So base pay for QD could be around $35-40K?? (Just a guess)

I just applied for the Perth base *fingers crossed*

After JUST being rejected by Emirates its probably the next best thing!

Can anyone who hears back for an interview post here? I don't wanna be waiting around unnecessarily :P

According to a QF CC, pay will be about $35K base. See other thread in the Cabin Crew pages.

Perth base

I have had a quick look at the T&C on the CC forum i was wondering if anyone could give a rough idea on the following.

i) How many overnights..if any...per month?
ii) An estimate on how much extra you would make on allowances per year?

Lastly... Blonde Hostie i know the wound is still probably a bit raw but is it possible for you to post your experience with your Emirates interview (im guessing it was the ones held in Perth over the weekend??) on the Emirates wannabe thread?

Many Thanks All!

Hi Skywise7

It's a little hard to predict what the rosters for QD pty/ltd crew will be like because the intention is that QAL (EBA 7) crew will get priority when flying is awarded.

Having said that, the January Perth patterns were roughly half day trips and half multi-day trips. The maximum number of overnights crew could achieve in the bid cycle was 15. So it looks like you would probably manage a good mix of single and multi-day trips.

Your DTA (an hourly rate you earn between sign on at home base and sign off at home base) would be the same as QAL crew which is a touch over $5. It is taxed if you are on a single day trip and tax-free if you are on a multi-day trip.

It looks like you could earn some extra cash through overtime (after 8.5 hours in a single duty). And other payments for working "unsociable hours" or hours over your monthly max. Unclear as to how much this would add up to until you see the actual Agreement.

Good luck

great info supplied by GalleyHag in the Cabin Crew Forum so take a look

Rexel I can't reply to your PM, it says you have chosen not to receive PMs. Might need to change your settings.

Ground schools have been in Sydney or Melbourne as that is where the trainers and facilities are. No EP or cabin services trainers or equipment in Perth. But yes positions are mostly Perth based.

Assessment centres are the usual deal held in one of the big hotels.

wow! Good work blonde hostie for hearing back so soon! Goodluck! I hope everything goes really well for you on Saturday.

To everyone who had suggestions for me to re-size my photo...i tried everything and nothing worked! all my photo sizes are 1.08KB (i think) and the application only allows 200MB or something like that. I dont know what else to do so i will have to wait and see if they will accept my application without a photo. If not...you can all live the dream for me
