Hold Email

Hey guys,

Just thought Iíd update you all on my application journey, since everyone here has been so kind with their helpful info!

Online Application - 23/03
Assessment Day Invite 24/04
Assessment Day - 02/05
XREF link - 03/05
Additional Info Email - 09/05
Background Check Portal Link - 03/06
Submitted Background Check - 04/07
Background Check Completed - 30/07

Yesterday, I received an email from Qantas congratulating me on passing my security check... and that I have been placed on indefinite hold. I am so devastated because I am so unhappy in my current job and was hanging onto this glimmer of hope that Iíd be in GS by October at the latest.

Iíve read through this entire forum a hundred times, and saw that people were waiting up to 1 YEAR to get contacted for GS, and had to redo all their certificates (I got all mine done 2 months ago.. Itís a Virgo thing haha!)

I had a cry to my mum about it for ages and she looked at me like the dumbest kid on earth! Saying that I have made it past hundreds of other applicants and that I should be grateful to get this far, and that gods timing will come into play when it needs to!

So Iím taking the time to stop sulking, and celebrate my achievement of making it thus far! Iím going to go to the gym 5 times a week (maybe..weíll see..letís be real... Iíll go once) and manifest my
Golden Call moment and push through my current toxic work environment.

Really wishing every single one of you the BEST of luck with your applications and canít wait to see you all on board soon!!

Hi Dreamergirl,

You have done so well! Congratulations on making it through!

I totally understand how you are feeling. I am
in an awful job situation too! I applied for Brisbane and my hopes went through the roof only to receive an email saying there wonít be recruiting anytime in the near future. Literally, heartbroken. But like you Iím hanging in there with hope and trusting Gods timing. Itís so hard. At least you know you HAVE the job! Which is so exciting! Itís the DREAM!!!

Hey guys,

Iím so so sorry for what you guys have been put through. I canít even imagine how gut wrenching that mustíve felt! Just know that I speak from experience when I say everything happens for a reason. And it WILL happen! Please donít give up hope! Book a holiday, hang out with friends...do anything to take your mind off it. But know you HAVE the job! Now itís just the waiting game!

All the very best and let me know how you go! Iíll be rooting for you ❤️✈️🙏

Hi Gypsy Heart,

I too am on hold for QF International BNE. In the meantime, I applied for Qantas Link & Altara/Jetstar. I got an AD for Altara/JS Domestic in mid July and now been offered a GS mid August. It happened so fast. I have been sent my first study materials and my uniform measurement info. Done my medical and waiting for all the green ticks for ASIC. Once you've done a year with Altara, you transfer into Jetstar fully. Plus my correspondence is from Qantas. It's very exciting.

Did you apply for anything else? Hope you have had some good news. I wish you all the best!

Cheers

It was also advertised on Seek.com for Altara/Jetstar. Keep an eye on Altara website as they recruit whenever Jetstar needs crew. Also I believe my friend got her position for Qantas Link last year through the Altara website under Cobham.

It's casual which suits me fine. From the sounds of the AD I'm going to be a very busy casual.

Hey Dreamergirl

I love the positivity and supportiveness of others, definitely shows you'll be an awesome Qantas cabin crew member, hopefully sooner rather than later!!

May I ask if you applied for the Sydney or Melbourne base? I applied for Sydney but my background check still isn't complete even though it's been over 8 weeks now. Starting to think I'll also be put on hold as it doesn't seem like anyone else's is taking such a long time! Anyway I'll try to remain hopeful and at least this process will make me a more patient person haha.

Thanks

Hey,

Just so that you know and everyone else knows, Jetstar doesn't exactly work like that. After you have been at Altara for a year (thats one year after you graduate ground school, not when you start ground school) you become eligible to apply for Team Jetstar (actually be apart of Jetstar). There has to be positions available for you to apply for, you don't just automatically get it. And the year has to have passed before applications close. If you are successful in interviewing to be a part of Team Jetstar, there is still some time until you get it. You are then Jetstar Casual for atleast 6 months until you are able to apply for Team Jetstar Full-time and then the process repeats itself. They have to have positions available and open for you to apply for and then you have to interview for it again. Unless you are extremely lucky, the whole process of graduating and becoming full time can take almost 2 years

Oh thanks so much for letting me know. Greatly appreciated! I was just going on what we were told at the Assessment Day by Altara/Jetstar. Sounds like there's more to it. Looking forward to GS this month. All the best CC wannabees!

Well, there hasn't been a ground school for almost 2 years in SEQ, so good luck to anyone that gets through it. And there are many problems going on with Jetstar at the moment, so really think carefully

Thanks for all your kind words everyone! It definitely helps knowing thereís so many of us going through the same waiting game!

Hannah, so proud of you applying!! Never too late to pursue your dreams, Iíll try to remember that after having kids haha.

To everyone wondering, I applied for MEL/EXTERNAL Base for qantas international. I havenít seen anyone else on this forum discuss anything past background stages for Melbourne, only Sydney and poor Brisbane people 😞
