I understand from the post above that the walk in at grand roxy is for jet star international, just want to have a better understanding of what to expect out of the employment under JSI as there are limited information on regarding this.
May i ask:
1) Do they do layovers or turn around flights?
mostly layovers. never turnaround out of and back to sin.. turnarounds are usually in australia... but not many.
Dovee: Sorry to ask a not so clever qn, the recruitment now for jetstar int'l crew is SIN base right?
2) if they do turn layovers, are they paid by per sector like all other airlines?
what do u mean by turn layovers?? our pay is flight pay (based on hours u fly) and layover allowance (depending on where u are having ur layover)
Dovee: sorry i mean layover, not turn layovers. my mistake.
3) Since they are not considered budget airline, are they expected heavily to do sales of F&B on the plane like other budget airlines?
we still do sales on board... well we try our best to sell cos that will become our commission.. good for company, good for us!
Dovee: Of course, additional income!
4) How long are the training period? Upon confirmation to commence training, are the candidates expected to pay any bond fee etc?
ground school is 1 month... no upfront bond is required.
Dovee: oh, the training seems to be much shorter than other airlines here in SIN. so i suppose the training is very intense?
5) How long is their contract / bond?
Dovee: Any idea if they do give out completion bonus? just curious.
6) How are the interviewing process for jetstar international?
1st day is a 1-1 interview with JQ people. after that go home wait for phone call. they will call u up within the same day if u are chosen for the next round. 2nd day is a whole day affair with first round being group games, written test (not difficult if u study). after that they will eliminate some people from that round. then u go for lunch. come back from lunch, there will be a briefing on salary structure, benefits, etc. then comes the Q&A. after that, there will be one more 1-1 interview. then swimming test. then u are done! jus wait for the phone call.
Dovee: This is a service oriented industry, i am sure that they are looking for candidates that can provides good customer service, but is there any other requirement that they may be looking for? for eg like SIA, whr we know that its seems like the appearance and perfect skin is a must criteria to enter their position, is it the same that happens in JSI? >.<
7) Lastly, i know everyone have a burning question about the salary structure and it's not right to discuss about it. But, how much per month on average can cabin crew from Jetstar internation bring home, in comparison to SIA?
cannot compare to SIA. the more u fly the more u take home...
Dovee: i am asking this because i just left my work in a junior position, earning a pay est of 2k ++, so i am considering with the need to be working constantly overseas, the possibility of spending will definitely be higher than i am spending at home country, i am just wondering if the salary will be at least 3k per month, so as to cover things like meals overseas, as well as late night/ early flight transportation via cabs.
Thats all for now. I hope if anyone who knows can share with us!
Thanks Whitepetals for sharing your knowledge with us. Thou many will suggest that we should go for it if i am really interested (because if you dont try you never know), but i just to go through all that i need to know seriously before i even take a step to go for it. It's not fair for me to deprive of other's opportunity if i only realise something basic that i am not uncomfortable at the last stage (if i ever gets there O.o) and withdraw.
Any other infor that you need the cabin crew wannabe should also take note of before going for it?
