More recruitment? :-/ It's been so quiet (many of us are not getting much work) and they seem to have too many staff already? That's just my opinion though. Maybe they have a plan we aren't aware of.

It completely varies. I've had shifts ranging from four hours to eleven hours - that depends on what flights and how many legs you do. Some weeks you'll be flat out and others you might be on home...

I've never personally been treated badly by crew on different contracts because I'm a casual. We all do the same job in the end and I believe most people acknowledge this.

You wear business attire throughout EPs and only start wearing the uniform when you commence service training. You won't be sharing an apartment with anyone else. MAM will provide all the flight and...

I don't think you get a choice if you want a break or not - it is just straight into flying (give or take a few days)

Carguard, in terms of overnights I think it just depends on your base. I'm in Sydney and in the just under two months I've been flying I've had approx 22 overnights, with only 1 day trip. This means...

The way it was explained to me at my medical was that those questions are often asked just so the airline can have a record of any pre existing hearing damage or problems. That way, if you have any...

Jack, I commute via public transport (until I finally get my Ps!), and quite a few other crew I've met do the same. They don't take your driving status into consideration.

At the high hourly rate they pay, money shouldn't be an issue (once you get through training ofcourse!). The minimum number of hours they can give you per month is 80, but that would mean an entire...

With MAM, you would be away 7 weeks for training in Sydney, if you lived in another base.

Your pay might be more with MAM, but Virgin do pay holiday/sick pay and MAM do not.

MAM/Qantas pay better than Jetstar, and you'll get paid fortnightly throughout the training (rather than at the completion of GS!). The training wage isn't a whole lot but the hourly rate is high -...
