JetConnect - Wellington

JetConnect (Qantas) is hiring for its Wellington base if you guys are keen.

Tough luck if you are based in Auckland. They have already done the hiring for there.

yes they are

hi bt89,
yes they are it was advertised on seek.co.nz yesterday. it says that you register your interest and they take it from there, so i think they must look at all the applications first before contacting people.

be patient and good luck, let us know if you get a call!

I went on Saturday the 12th. I asked the lady she said it's another Group interview where they will be watching your behaviour, grooming and all the rest. It's a good sign if you can get through all these processes!
See you there and good luck!!!

hey bt89 i got through to the panel interview yayy and they have contacted my references who i spoke with after and said it all sounded positive so just waiting to hear back from them for the next stage so fingers crossed!
The questions were all to do with your personal experience in dealing with customers/clients/etc so you really have to think of your own real life examples.
Good luck! I guess the best advice I got was to just be yourself which apart from being extremely nervous I tried my best to be just that. Have you applied with any airlines yet?

Business attire, simple as that.

Simple jewellery, very tidy hair and makeup, not over the top.

I was told by a client of mine who is an attendant told me to wear my best business attire, heels, hair back in a tidy bun, nice make up and a smile. Always be positive, when answering the scenario type questions remember to describe the Situation, the Action taken, and the Outcome, and try to have a few specific scenarios in mind before you go, instead of making it up on the spot. And always be positive in the group discussions. This is the advice I was given, and I trust it works because I just got offered the job today . Good luck!!

Congrats AmberLea. I also got the job so yay! Hope to fly with you soon. Is your start date 3rd August?

The medical costs I thought were exhorbitant though. $370NZD medical, $90 NZD hearing test, $79 NZD OCG (dental xray) and $80 NZD blood test for antibodies Hep A&B and measles.
All up over $600! I have worked for 2 airlines before and never spent over $300 for medical tests so this is a bit ridiculous. With GST going up I don't see many people prepared to accept this kind of cost in the future!

Jetconnect Application

Hi guys!

I also attended the Jetconnect interviews, the one that began on the 27th June. Yesterday I went for my medical & it cost the same - $560! Very expensive. Hopefully it will all be worth it shortly

Can anybody shed any light into what happens once the medical results come back, i.e. the next step?

I have heard through the grapevine that there are two lots of groups starting within 2 weeks of each other?

This is all very exciting!!
