I think it's better to work for MAM and move up in the world to full time. Qantas international positions are competitive not mention the looooong wait for ground school, difficult but not impossible but.
Wouldn't get my hopes up for that; when I was previously employed with then I was there more than 2 years and there was no opportunity for transfer for MAM to QF long haul . We had to apply just like anyone else off the street. As for the crew who had already been there for years, I only knew a few who transferred to full time short haul. Maybe it's different now but you'd likely still come after mainline domestic crew in the scheme of things if positions became available in long haul.

Donít fret!! Iím Adelaide base and myself and two other people are doing our medicals tomorrow... theyíre probably waiting for us and others before giving the calls! Especially if they called you, confirmed the date and we all failed medicals and they didnít have enough to do a ground school... theyíd have to call you again!!

Well that doesn't sound very promising....
When did you leave MAM?
the lady at assessment day said 'our casuals went to become full time employees with Qantas, if you stick around long enough that opportunity will come'

What is the pay like, is it enough to live on without getting a second job and do you get any travel perks?
It would be ideal to be able to fly back home few times a month without having to pay for full fare... ahah...

Hey

Hey all

do we normally get a call from HR once we pass our medicals and have an allocated training date or they will notify you if you pass your medicals via email followed by a call after a training date becomes available?

) thank youu!!

Was it just the interview or did he had to do the whole application from scratch?

He said he applied internally, went to the interview , waited 2 weeks for the yes call and was booked straight into conversion ground school.

That is so much better than going through the whole process, taken out many, many steps.
Thanks for the info

Hi all,

I also received the email asking for RSA, First Aid and water competency.
such short noticed, if you haven't got RSA or first Aid there is no way you could get them by Friday 6pm.

Im pretty sure if you book in for classes and show them the receipt and able to obtain it within reasonable time then they should be fine with it.

I knew they would be asking for the water competency certificate, I'm gonna 'wing it' like theskyismyhome said.

Still havent done my medical yet, is anyone in the same stage as me?
