Gday guys and gals,

Congrats to those of you that have got through and good luck to those of you that are going through.

Last year I completed the Qantas Psych testing, which included a Numerical Test and a Verbal Comprehension test. Does anyone know if the Qantaslink Psych test is of the same format and same type of questions, timeframes etc?

I am also guessing that the personality portion of the psych testing must be a bit like the QF one? I think there are almost 200 odd questions?????

Im not asking anyone to break any disclosure statements etc, but any advice that you care to share would be very much appreciated - either in forum for all to share of by PM if you prefer. I have read the postings above, but didnt really answer the questions that I have asked here.

Thanks in advance

How is the course going?

Would be very interested to hear from anyone currently doing the traineeship how the program is going and the workload involved? Also wondering why it requires about 2 months of training. From the website looks like it could be done within 2 weeks. I could be missing something of course

21391401, yes.

HB, from what I've been told it takes about 6 (SIX) months from the time you first start the course, till you're flying on the line. The training involved includes; multi-crew training, CRM course, extra IF flying (Qlink standard), Dash8 endo, QLink procedural flying (SOPs?), etc etc.

How true this is, we'll have to wait and see.

How long...

Hey Maloo,

How long did they make you wait before they called you? just did the sim and interview... can't stand the not knowing... BTW sim was sooooo cool eh? full motion 747-300 and for everyone else, yes, he lets you land if your approach is on the money!

Non Workers getting a look in

Hey numbers, I've only been working as a meatbomber since end of Jan. Put my application in abour middle of feb. I think I had worked three weekends. If you meet the requirements and have some of their 'desired' requirements I'm sure you'll get a look in. I've got everything except a few ATPL 350TT, Degree and I didi my training at GFS (Qantas's chosen training organisation) and I got a look in. Sim ride next week. Keep positive and don't listen to the pesimists, it's a great opportunity. Good luck.

Possible typo?

I think I may have worked it out. Is it possible that they meant 100 hours bridging course not 10 hours? That would be more realistically 4-8 weeks wouldn't it?

Hey Mate

Are you doing the course? If so can you tell me what the program involves. Are you working 7 days a week? Sounds fantastic just trying to get an idea of the program that's all

Charlie Uniform Mike - nothing yet, my guess is they will wait until after the 11th and then contact those going to the next stage.

CharlieUniformMike,

Not sure I understand your question? I have interview/sim in a couple of weeks time but suspect my 'group' is already interviewing/simming.

Have you had the psych/maths test?

UTR.

To the people who have been offered a position, has it so far been verbal or have you received anything on paper yet?
