A320 full time rates

Hi there,

Yes it's for the Air NZ subsidiary "zeal" even though it's advertised by Air NZ.

Starting salary for full time is $28,067. Plus an annual allowance of $3874, paid fortnightly. There is an hourly tax-free allowance of $4.87 for every hour on duty.

Minimum 10 days off per 28 day roster, usually more. You can work up to 6 days in a row. Each shift is typically between 9.5 and 12 hours. The Akl base has quite a few all-night shifts.

For part time you work half the days but not necessarily the same number of days each month, it's as the company requires, also 2 full time rosters each year, when directed, obviously at peak times.

PM me for any details.

Walk In

Hi Rosie,

I thought the whole process run really well, very efficent and informative....also pretty quick. The short interview was fine although I was alittle stumped when they asked name a place Air NZ doesnt fly to and why they should go there ......that threw me but I think I answered ok. I havent heard anyhthing yet but keeping fingers crossed that will hear soon. What did you think of it and have you heard anything yet ?

Cheers

Walk in

Hi luv2fli!

That was a hard question! I thought they flew everywhere! Did they mean for Zeal? I thought it was really well done too - very professional. It was so short! I was a little shocked when it was all over.

I haven't heard back yet but hope I do soon so I can arrange time off work. The invite came on the Monday for the Thursday walk-in and that was a little tough getting time off from work then. So hopefully we'll hear today

Do you know if we pass through the assessement centre, would they have us do a swimming test?
Rosie.

10 Days off a roster ? ? ?

Well thats not entierly accurate as at Zeal they agreed that a working day extends until about 1.00am.

So you can actually finish a duty well after midnight and then be required to work again that very same day. It was pointed out how absurd it was but apparently the majority thought it was no big deal.

Before that, any day you signed off after 2400/0000 was considered a working day, and you could not be rostered to operate again on that day.

Hi Joe

Of course the majority wanted the proper definition of a day, but concessions had to be made, otherwise we'd still be in negotiations.

We've always been able to work past midnight and start another duty the next day, nothing new there.

Hi Rosie,

My understanding is that if you are invited to attend the assesment then you will have to bring proof of the test with you... Im sure they will clarify that when they let us know if we have got through...

Air New Zealand

Hi,
did anyone go to the walk in interview on Tuesday? The whole atmosphere seemed really nice. Also does anyone know what the minimum eyesight requirement is. The website says "Your unaided vision must be sufficient for you to perform all Flight Attendant safety related duties in an emergency". how do they assess that?
Thank you.

Also got invited to the long haul walk-in see you there!
Coming from Australia...does anyone know if the assessment days are usually held shortly after the walk-in days? Would love to know, be quite annoyed if i flew back home and was invited to an assessment centre a few days later.

I am not coming from as far as Aussie just up from Wellington but called today to ask that question as I also didn't want to get back to WLG just to go back later in the week. They are looking at either later that week or next week for the next stage if you get through to the assessment. What time is your walk in? 5:15 here
