Dress requirements ground school

Hi all, I start my ground school on may 18, eeek very excited 😊, just wondering if anyone knows whether most of the training will be in uniform or our own clothes? Also does anyone know what the heel requirements are for work (I'm aware we change into flats once in the plane)? I'm just not sure what heel height to buy. Also which pantyhose do most girls buy and which colour would be great to know. And which colour lipstick. Also is it true we can't wear eye-liner? Thanks so much if anyone knows the answers I'd be so grateful xx

congratulations on GS Debbie,
I am external, Melbourne applicant.

sorry, I canít answer your question re: uniforms however, I have researched Qantas preferred style and I know a neat Chignon is preferred instead of donut type buns, (although I wore a small donut and passed AD).
and natural looking makeup, less is more. Also light shades of pink for lip and nails.

I found this info (below) when searching for shoes myself..

QANTAS CREW: Shoes are available to view in the Qantas Melbourne base, and Sydney uniform department.
Can I get advice on what shoes are best for me?
YES! Please contact Louise she would love to help you. Phone 0417 933 523.

Hi Debbie,
Did your training get delayed? I thought I saw something from you with an earlier date. Maybe I'm mixing you up with someone else. Regarding uniforms, you get fitted for them early on but you're not wearing them until the service training at the end is what guys I know who are currently training have told me. Grooming is also covered at this time.

Hi Jaden, it's so good to finally meet someone in my ground school! Yes I'm Sydney based, but I live in Brisbane so I'm currently trying to work out where I'm staying and what to pack. We seem to have a lot of days off don't we, it's going to be an expensive few months for those of us coming from interstate, yikes!

Thanks for that Watto. And yes I was due to start GS in March but I tore my meniscus 2 weeks out and had to wait till I passed another medical before being put back into GS.

yes indeed! I found that quite strange with the many days off. Maybe itís done on purpose for us to use these days as study time??
anyway hope to catch you on the day Debbie! Good luck with all the logistics you have to go through making the move 😊

Hi guys & girls,

Iíve just made GS for May 31st!
And I think there is a GS in July, this is good news for anyone worried that they havenít heard back from recruiters,
cos if there is a GS in July, there will probably be an AD in June.

Hope this info helps

As I was born in the Territory, my ID may take a little longer getting back as the background checks need to be issued from my place if birth possibly.
I guess..
Hope this info helps

congrats, well done!

So youíre internal yeah?

I received the rejection letter within a few days. However, I wanted to let you know, this happened to me the first time I applied - in 2022!
Then I applied again, 2023 and got through! I did my research and I think it paid off, if I were you, id apply again, donít give up your dream just bcos of one rejection! Show how resilient u are.

Hi Kylie,
is the questionnaire youíre referring to the chat questions or the video interview? I first applied 5 years ago and it was a video interview, successful all the way to GS however I moved overseas and did not attend. Iíve reapplied now Iím back home and I was sent a chat questionair the day after however havenít heard anything since.

Then I applied again, and miraculously, got through. I did my research and I think it paid off, as I knew how to answer the questions and what they were talking about. It helps when u know what they prioritise and what theyíre looking for. However, the girl with international cabin crew exp (who didnít get invited to AD) I do not understand why she was rejected?? Maybe they analysed the airlineís recent performance and needed to hire more staff, and thatís how someone with no cabin crew exp got through, vs others who are qualified didnít. maybe itís just timing? Who knows.
I would Apply again, donít give up on your dream. X

Hi Kel,
the chat questions, I found them easy and enjoyable as I researched the answers really well.
what made u leave? A better job offer? Was it for another airline?
so have u attended the AD this year?
or just completed your questionnaire? I think they take a wk to reply, or maybe less time, not long. Itís the waiting after the AD that stressed me the most, but now Iím super worried abt the fitness test. Ive been jogging daily but my upper body strength is terrible, I need another month of training to be REALLY fit.

I did a similar thing when I was young; I sold my car and relocated to HK, naively thinking I could get a job there, but as it happened the language barrier was too challenging, so I came home broke and feeling totally lost.

25 years later.. when I first applied for Qantas cabin crew, I just applied online and told the recruiter i wasnít comfortable being filmed for cultural reasons which they accepted and I was sent the questionnaire link.
when I answered all the questions the second time I applied, i felt way more confident and answers were more polished as Iíd researched how to promote a safety culture, and I also had more clearer idea of how to answer the questions. The first time I didnít research anything and thatís probably why my answers were incorrect.

Now I understand the importance of safety, how to answer questions in star format, and shows I understand the question, I think this is why I was successful the 2nd time round and invited to an AD. I still canít believe Iím possibly going to ground school late May. It depends on my medical results and if I get my asic back on time, but my recruiter said I can push back the GS date until July 2023. In 2003
I had 2 dependants I was in my mid 20ís and although I always wanted to apply, I knew my partner would not support me or the children.

Iím just glad I havenít aged too badly and feel fit enough to still do my job well for several years. I plan to practice my Chinese language skills until Iím more fluent (12 months) then I can apply for international cabin crew positions. I know Iím getting ahead of myself, but thatís the plan! 😂

Iíd be pretty stoked if I was working Regional or domestic routes as this has been my dream career since forever.
Can u imagine working on an A380 Dreamliner! Whoa.. and better pay.

what position did u apply for Kel? Where are you with your application?

Hi Kylie,
Iím so thrilled for you that you are finally getting to live our your dream! It sounds like you definitely deserve it after putting the work in. Iím sure you will be flying internationally down the track too, you seem determined to achieve yours goals. How very exciting. Sending you all the good vibes and wishes for your Qantas journey!

Iíve applied for International Base Melbourne, same as I did in the past.
Last time I heard back for a video interview followed by assessment day quickly. Iím a little concerned that I have not heard anything after my chat questionair to indicate if I would be moving forward or not. Not even a video interview optionÖ My application online says in progress and not rejected so Iím hoping thatís a good sign 😅
