Thanks for he info. Same issue as previous posters- page error when using the regular apply button, and when going through the Apply-LinkedIn button it brings up nothing in the drop down which is a mandatory field.

No contact info on Workday or MAM sites to let them know this is happen. Tried on several devices/browsers too

All new employees to MAM will be on D contract. When I was MAM I bid for 19 days and got about 15-19 days. Your on reserve 90% of the roster and have about 1-2 trips pre allocated.
Thanks for the information crewflyer!

Has anyone else received assessment day invitations today? I haven't confirmed a session yet (so the information may be on the next page), but I'm struggling to find a location for the assessment day. I'm assuming it's in SYD?

Contract D

Hi JRF2

Treat the info below as third hand, I can’t vouch for the accuracy.
A friend told me the roster for D’s will most likely be 12 hour AV Reserve spans...
For every three hours on reserve, FA’s are paid for one hour.
Comany pre-allocates 14-19 days of ‘duty’ (could be all AV) at company discretion.
It is possible to be called out at the end of a 12 hour reserve & be gone for three days - after waiting around all day - so planning a personal life could be tricky.
Friend is unaware of a minimum number of hours pay per month (unlike C contract that has a minimum of 80 hours pay per month). Worth checking this as D contract talks in days, not hours.
FA can request three consecutive days off prior to the rostering cut off date.
Can also request less than 19 days duty, this will be at company discretion.
Going sick upline, it seems pay stops..
Roster is rolling 14 days.
Training wage is the national minimum pay.
Hourly pay around $35 per hour
Overtime $15 per hour
DTA $6 per hour
Drafting is permitted.
Casuals can be contacted on days off to be advised of a duty for their next rostered day.
That’s about all he can think of. Hope that helps. X

So basically, the pay is the same as what C got 8-10 years ago. Yikes. OT at that time kicked in over 100 hours I think? And max 120? Or it was possibly OT after 120 and max 140, I can't recall.

C didn't have any sick leave or annual leave either (except one calendar month per year to be taken all at once, unpaid) I don't think we got paid sick upline either, just accommodation. I got sick for a good chunk of time out of my base and I basically lived off a loaf of bread and hot chicken from the Coles down the street as at the time I had no money (only cash at home) and payday was ages away... lol... so that's no surprise it's not paid now either. They did organise all the usual stuff like dr, transport to/from dr etc etc

I wonder if the training is still all in SYD/MEL or if they are doing classroom in PER and sending over for EPs... I had heard that was how it was going to be done shortly before I left, but no idea if that is how it's done now. There is the facility in Perth as there is a 737 cabin sim down in Jandakot, but it's not QF spec as far as I know

D contract unpaid annual leave can be split into 2 x 2 week blocks, first two or last two weeks of a roster..& Australia’s minimum wage that applies for training is around $18 per hour..eek!

Training pay sounds a bit disappointing... when I trained it was the same hourly as normal ($35) for whenever you were in the classroom, plus DTA as we were out of Base. Basically 7 weeks of DTA 24/7 my pay packets were never so good, lol.

I mean I get why they are doing it (cost must have been huuuuuge) bit if you train in Base the wage should be the same. If you're out of Base I think a lower rate is fair bc they'd be paying for accommodation etc.

Anyway the point is moot as the application still doesn't work *shrug*

Kadara, when I was there Base transfer wasn't an option for casuals. Only if they applied for FT and got it, then served the waiting period.

as for reserve, it wasn't so bad. You just had to be contactable. You weren't tied to home lime you are with some airline's.

The best part was the 2 hour min call out. Hopefully it still applies. Because if you were prepared, you could sit reserve at the beach during summer

I am actually getting so frustrated I can't make the application work... I might call them Tuesday because they may not even be aware there is an issue. Seems like its a few people from Perth so hopefully they can fix it and we can apply ill let you know if I have any luck!

I believe the call out is now: you must be available immediately with a maximum call out of two hours.

Did anyone noticed in the invitation email they stated 'research Network Aviation'?
Does this means the casual positions is for the Fokker 100 and A320 for QantasLink?

I thought MAM employs casuals for Qantas's domestic arm not QantasLink network...

Network

I don't know, Network has a separate job listing via the QF site.

I mean it's possible, MAM contracts for a lot of places, but it seems counter productive to go through a labour hire company just to crew for your subsidiary instead of yourself. That's adding extra layers of administration that aren't needed because QF have done it themselves in the past
