You'll want to bring corporate clothes to wear in ground school til uniform week.

Use a mix and match so you don't have to bring too much stuff. Gym clothes, Pjs, a couple of going out outfits as you'll go for some dinners etc with your group. Jeans and runners for any pracs that require long sleeves and pants (not sure if fire training is still live)

Not sure if accommodation is still apartments with cooking facilities or not. For my group we had apartments in CBD area of Sydney, went home over Xmas, back for a week and had rooms near QF head office, back across for NY, then back to the apartments after NY. It's probably different now, but we didn't share rooms which was nice.

you'll gave to wear "business casual" on your flights to/from as well if I'm not out of date now.

unfortunately my references haven't responded so that's likely me out if the running.

background check

Hey guys, my ACIC result was approved after two days, I have green ticks for everything except Aus check results and Final qantas security clearance status, its nearly been two weeks. Anyone else experienced this? Just find it so odd how one can be so quick..

Also what did people wear to their medical? I was thinking like comfy gym wear just because of the physical aspect.. but then again I didn't want to look silly.

I'm out. Seems they won't accept references from Gulf airlines as they say they won't give them (although they do give a letter confirming dates of employment and that you resigned rather than were terminated)

I explained that I had sent one earlier this year which was accepted so let's see what they say. If they won't take that, I don't have any other to give that's at least months duration

Your medical came fast!
My security is all green except for printing.
They asked me for 1st aid, rsa and water competency but no medical emails yet.
​​​​​​
I've been waiting for 6 weeks now.
So exhausting -_-

Does anyone know what they do in the medical, what tests they do? Blood & urine samples? What do they make you do in it? Just really curious!

You need to do 20 sit-ups, 15 push ups, side plank each side for 30 seconds, 10 squats, 3min step up test and your heart rate must be 100 beats per minute. Then you do the waiters bow, lift 20kg and lift 2 7kg weights. Then itís the usual drug tests, touch your toes, check mobility in the legs and measure them.

Yikes with that medical they're pretty much excluding anyone who's ever had a back or shoulder injury (which is a LOT of former crew as odds are you'll injure your back at some point on the job)

I had an injury due to a pax dropping a bag on my head it's healed now but while I can lift the required weight to open exits I'm meant to avoid it unless necessary. So the idea of doing all that puts me off. Before the medical just checked your balance and coordination and to ensure you could lift the exits properly. I've never been able to touch my toes and Dr said it's fine if I have always been that way but by the sounds if this they'd fail me. Bit worrying

Hi all,

Did anyone went to Melbourne assessment day back in June and is still waiting for their medical or just waiting in general for any progress?

Cheers,

Went to an interview with Mam in BNE over a month ago, does anyone know when there will be a ground school, or has anyone got an email or phone call?
