Information required!

Hi Guys, earlier last month I applied for causal Cabin Crew role with MAM based in BNE I made it through to assessment day next Wednesday at 1pm. I am only 19 years of age and have no previous experience in the industry, Iíve only worked at McDonaldís for the past 4.5 years. I notice itís a behavioural question interview and was wondering if anyone could give me questions they asked at the assessment day? And what the timeline of the day Is like etc. This is my dream job and have never wanted anything in my life more then I this position, would love to go in confident and prepared so any information would be appreciated. Kind Regards

Dream job, you'll be fine. McDonald's let's you see the whole spectrum of people I'm sure.

just think of a few examples you can give them... e.g. a rowdy patron, when you went above and beyond for a customer, when did you have a conflict with a colleague or customer and how did you deal with it... etc etc. I'm sure you'll be able to think of lots.

just keep in mind when you give your example "START Situation Task Action Result. What was happening? What did you need to achieve? What action did you take? What was the result?

don't be afraid to give a negative example where something didn't work out (They will likely ask one like this anyway) just remember to focus on what you learnt and how you would approach the situation differently next time.

good luck!

nope! 🤣 I got the call and flew out two days later. We did I think 3 weeks, got sent home over Christmas for I think 2 days, back again then sent home over NY as both times the accommodations had conflicting bookings. I guess it was cheaper to fly us back and forth twice than to keep us in Sydney. We stayed in serviced apartments in the city which was great. Didn't even have to share. Score! Not sure what it's like now though.

As for Short Haul it depends what the EBA says. When I was flying we could do any destination up to 10hr flight time so we could fly anything the 737, 767 And A330 flew up to that. It also depends on base. Perth got more internationals on average than Sydney because there were less crew and we had the SIN DPS CGK patterns

I applied over a month ago and just received an email to complete an online questionnaire.

Just a coupe of quick questions if anyone can answer

Are the training schools only done in Sydney? If yes, do they fly you there or is this at your own cost including accomodation?

With mam crew, which aircrafts are they trained in? As there are quite a few different types in qantas fleet I just was curious.
I received an email last week asking me to answer questions which I answered.

I then received an email Thursday morning inviting me to attend the AD on 12/9. It went to my junk folder and I didn't see it until Friday morning. Luckily I looked there!

I'm very excited for Wednesday!!

Hey all.

I applied for BNE base, did the questionnaire the day it was sent out but still haven't heard anything back. Given theres an AD tomorrow does that mean its a no?
Do they send you a "no" email if you're unsuccessful, or is it a case of no news is good news and I might get invited to the next one?
Im confused haha

Best of luck tomorrow for those going!

Hey

It's nothing too difficult, urine and breath test.. then goes on to some QnA and a blood pressure test.

After that they do some stretch test with your limbs and they'll ask you if anything hurts etc. The physical test involves push ups, sit ups ,side planks and step ups on a small step for about 3 mins or so.

they will then ask you to lift a suit case of 20kg and 7kg ..

that's about it! Good luck

Hi, dreamjob_99 was this for Brisbane base? Did you interview on Wed 12SEP? AM or PM? Also, did QF email you advising your references were getting checked or did your references tell you they got checked? Thanks so much, and congrats so far!

Hello, yes it was for BNE. I was in the PM session, have you heard anything? Were you in Am or Pm?

QF emailed me advising they were checking references.

Makes me wonder if you are correct. As the process you described above doesnít follow the process QF/MAM follow when it comes to reference checking.

Not really, you get an automatic email from Xref when a referee completes a reference and I got one again once the employer (Qantas) had accepted them and they were under process. Maybe this is what previous poster is referring to?

I got a congrats email to progress and complete the Qantas Security and ASIC checks (which I did). It also said in 24 hours the link for reference checks will come.
