I was told GS would be BNE, with a definite date for Aug and another in late September or early October.. I'm now wondering if the total number they required which was 75, is this going to be made up of BNE SYD and MEL as I was under the impression it was 75 for BNE ..

Yeah I wouldn't be too sure either, unfortunately. Have any of you heard anything back as of yet?

Well, a bit of an update on my cabin crew progression. Even though I was unsuccessful with Altara / Jetstar I have been selected to attend a recruitment day for Virgin Australia. No date as to when that will be yet, but still a huge congratulations to everyone who is following their dreams as I know I am following mine. Everyone that I met at my Altara day were a great bunch of people and you will all do an amazing job! Happy flying

To be honest I don't think they have certain number of future ground schools and positions planned, they just seem to pump them through on demand. Looking as far ahead as end of year planned ground schools- they prob have three mabye four they could fit in before end of year.
They usually try to do the ground schools per base, bne would be held all in bne and MEL all in MEL- Sydney are 3 weeks in Syd 1 week in MEL. I can't believe they aren't checkin leg more than one reference?! That's crazy!

Hi Croissant1, thanks for your comments ... In your experience I assume you are a flight attendant with Jetstar .., did they call all your references? I agree it would be a costly exercise to fly and accommodate recruits to only one port for GS, so it seems logically to have GS at each location ...

Interesting. In my situation in regards to reference I think they may have only checked one so far as I've been at my place of employment for close to five years now so mostly all of my references are from the one work place and I wouldn't assume they would say anything different.. But I'm unsure if that's the case or they are just taking their time getting through people's references one by one.

My recruitment was incredibly long ago so wasn't relevant to current recruitment procedures. This recruitment is done via Altara not Jetstar. Altara are the ones that hire and employ you, and you will be working for them, so their recruitment practices can be literally whatever they want. If they don't sufficiently reference check someone and that person turns out to be trouble, it's Altaras problem.
JQ has head office and training centre in Melbourne and all if SYD MEL and ADL crew do yearly EP training in MEL facilities. All QLD crew do EPs at aviation australia in bne- they have doors and a cab trainer up there so ground schools can be held there also.
It dosent really cost them much to fly crew and trainees around (and Altara are the ones paying for accomodation- don't get me started on that) but it's more about use of the facilities because both MEL and aviation australia are booked solid with other airlines doing eps etc too.
