I went there around 10:30ish. So sad. :( I guess bec of my height. I'm only 155.5cm when they measured. But the interview went well and I was told that they will call in the afternoon. Well maybe not. :) what is their minimum height requirement? How abt u guys? What's your height measurement?

I'm a girl!

My height measure was 1.63m. What I really liked was that they were all so friendly and it hardly felt like an interview at all!

Today's one they just asked everyone pretty much the same questions right?

princessjm,

same for me! My interview went smooth too and its pretty alright but guess you might be right about the height..I'm 154 :( maybe that is why...

There wasn't any height requirement stated on the ads too...sad...:(

floatingdog, sorry I was you are a guy due to your nick...163 is tall~ If only u could share a bit of your height with princessjm and me...lol..well if height really fail then I guess i'll just give up on trying for another airline CC interview already...:(

I read from the past posts that Jetstar Asia no need to pay 1.8k bond nor medical fees but Jetstar Intl need to fork out everything...Soo is it true but how do we know if Jetstar Asia or Jetstar Intl is hosting this upcoming interview? Its all too confusing indeed!

I told my bf about bearing e bond and medical fees, he said it acceptable but after I told him about take-home salary, he told me if really have to bear e payments and still get a mediocre salary then its not worthy...But is this information real? I'm not doubting what you guys have posted here but some say no need and some say must...Its like I really gotta go try out the interview to find out e truth or something...



Jetstar International you gotta pay a bond upfront. JQ base was run by a travel agency (like agent) on behalf of Jetstar Australia. Now JQ base is passed onto the management of valuair.Don't know how that will work out for the bond and stuff in the future but from now i know yes, bond upfront. period.

He is not joking with you. The pay is below average. Can you really deal with a lousy pay? Ask yourself. Also remember you are flying for a budget airline, the company is going all the way they can to save, you will find out a lot of that when you are with the company.

You wanna work for a airline and be proud of it. But not to hide your face about it. It can be demoralizing.

Interview they will not disclose about the pay until you reach towards the ending of the interview. If you are gonna ask about the pay, they will not tell you cos it's bad basically.

Sorry to burst your bubble. You see a lot of kinds of ppl at Jetstar. Image is not so important like SQ. As long as you can pay the bond upfront, they will take you regardless you are old or average.

You will know what I mean if you decide to take it up.

Well Jetstar asia DO NOT HAVE to pay a single cents. no upfront, no medical fees. All will be paid by them not us. As for Intl' , yes you have to pay upfront($1850). As for medical i'm not sure. Jetstar asia has JQ lesson for now. As JSA going longer route that's explains why.

Hi Everyone! The thing is I went for JQ interviews last 23rd March. Got thru till 2nd round and swimming round. Being told to go home and wait for their call which seems like forever. So, now 4 months later they called me just now and told me i got accepted for JQ and my training starts in 4th October in Ground School. Im like HUH??! I thought I didnt get in after that fateful day of swimming round and interview. Hmm. Anybody from that batch got A Call too??

Hi Qistianna, that's super long time! I cleared everything yesterday and they said they will notify us within a week and training will start in Oct. I guess current batch will join together with previous batch for training. Keep my finger cross, hopefully will get their call/email soon!
Has anyone attended today interview? How was it?
