I'm so happy I found this!
I am in the exact same boat! I went to the assessment day in Brisbane on the 25th, I got an email two days later telling me to notify my references that they could be contacted so I did... And now I find out only one f my references have been called over two weeks ago. What's making me more nervous is that I kept in contact with someone that went to the same assessment day and sat at the same table as me, and he got a phone call last week saying he has made it to ground school!!! Guys I'm freaking out and yesterday I called Altara following up on my application and all the lady said to me was I would be recieving an email within the coming weeks with the status of my application. Why would she say I will receive an email and not a phone call??? 😳😳😳

Yes, they are casual and yes, they are told that in recruitment but most casuals are generally flying full time rosters (there are some quiet months) but I see too many young ones who are straight out of high school, no idea and don't last more than a few months. Some of them just don't understand the concept of work and it's a struggle to get them out of the galley and into the cabin.
This is not a glamorous job, this is invasive to your private life and social life and you will be exhausted ALOT of the time but you will work in an amazing environment with amazing crew and there are some crew who have been there coming up to 15 years, no plans on leaving. It's aviation. Sadly many people just can't grasp that (and granted its very hard to do that without prior flying experience)
However there are plenty of inexperienced crew that love it and stay, but they just had more realistic expectations to start with. I am in no way against new crew. I love meeting fresh, new eager crew and it's lovely to train and work with someone who cares about their job, cares about our customers and puts in 100% effort. These can be long, gruelling days, but they then get balanced out by a trip with a decent layover or an easy flight that gives you a bit of time to relax on. I think the most frustrating thing is just seeing crew who don't have any clue on what to expect with groundschool, somehow pass and come online and don't make an effort in their training to learn, then cruise through under the radar until they get enough warnings or have too many sick days that they end up leaving. This is a brilliant job, but sometimes you have to work 9-5 to realise how good you have it
Yes i hear you croissant2016!!

You will be domestic.
Once you have been flying for a certain period of time (12m) you are eligible to apply for a casual position with Team Jetstar and if you are successful you will be in the position to be 787 trained.
Not all TJs get 787 training. When you have it, it might be only on the random Occassion you would get a trip. Usually once a year for expiry purposes.
There isn't much ability to transfer over to JQ international as the majority of the crew is Foreign.

You will, however still get to do international flying on a narrow body- the narrow body international flying is mostly ex MEL and Syd and mainly grabs Tasman, Fiji and trips to SIN and DPS via PER.
They like sending the casual crew on these because they are flexible with what they can use you for and You don't get paid overnight allowances.

Yes an interesting response from Altara .. I recall from my assessment day on the 26th that they will keep potential candidates on file and will pull from that pool of candidates as GS open up .. So I'm now thinking from this response we could be in for a long wait .. In saying that I do hope I'm wrong as I'm keen to start asap. Let's hope I'm wrong

Just a question for those lucky ones who already received their golden call to start GS 15 August, were you given a date to have your Medicals and ASIC done by?

Hey Teamglobal,


l was just going through the feed and noticed you said you sent through your RSA & First Aid. Did you email it to them, is that what you meant? if so did you get any response.

Yes, i completed my RSA, and first aid within a week of the assessment day and emailed through, they just said they would be in touch again after reference check, at that stage my references hadn't been called, then one reference was called in week2 and still nothing yet .., I understand that the logistics of organising everything must be huge, so just waiting patiently

Hi all, Just a heads up about the process. Yesterday I received my Medical documents and have been given 1 month to complete this (I am doing mine next week).

I would recommend anyone who is waiting to get a copy of your immunisation records for MMA, Hep A & C as they require this. If you haven't had them you will need to get them.

Baybii t, any other immunisations required, as I'll get them done with hep A C at the same time ... Being in my mid 40s might be hard for me to track down any past certificate 😁

I'm not completely certain but in my one on one interview I can recall hearing that there would be one ground school starting in August and one in October but I'm not 100% sure? Did you apply for the casual Brisbane and gold coast based cabin crew?

I was on Wednesday the 25th, I just don't see what could possibly come in between the reference check stage to the next step which is ground school 😳
