    It seems there is still a lot of competition out there for flight crew jobs.

    Yada Yada,

    I totally agree. The name escape me but there is a recruitment company that now handles a number of airlines.

    If memory serves me correctly, I think if you keep applying to QF there is also a fee, but don't quote me on that.

    Part of the fee is for a personality test.So if they find one you miss out?

    If they find one and it's grumpy, you are sent to the Qantas HR department. :eek: :mrgreen:

    If they find one, and its grumpy, rude and lacking totally in any customer focus - then you're offered the job!

    Does anyone know the name of the personality assessment that is used in this process?

    If I recall correctly, Ryanair was charging pilot applicants £50 just to lodge an application. They might still be doing that too :-|

    You need to pay jetstar for the privilige of applying for a job with them. :confused:

    What a nice little money spinner that could become for jetstar. Hire the people they need but then continue to advertise for positions that do not exist. No need to fly passengers to make money but entice potential flight attendants to apply for a job regularly.

    I think this article is at least a little beat up against Jetstar.

    Many employers pass on costs for various expenses related to job applications. (And no I'm not talking about certain jobs where they're happy to fly you around the world for interviews)

    I agree that certain payments should not have to be made until the employee is offered a job (eg the Security check) and I think other payments should be bourne by Jetstar (eg the Psych check) rather than the applicant, but unfortunately that's the world we live in...
