Hi,
I was from Wednesday's round but didnt even get to the swimming round...share with us how was it like yesterday? did a lot of ppl get thru to the swimming test round??? although i failed for JQ but success with 3K! Woohoo! Which works out well for me in the end as i do prefer turnarounds as im already married and being able to come home everyday yet still get to fly is a dream come true...:)

Haha hello hellomaomao!

Nice to hear from you! Welcome to the wait-forever-but-still-no-news family. Don't worry you're not the only one. Me has been waiting since forever too.

Want to give up waiting soon liao. So stuck in limbo, want to do other things also don't know how.

I just got the latest news from my crew fren. JQ will call those selected from July and Aug interviews next week. Batch 9 will start training 18 Oct and batch 10 will start 1 Nov. So far, 26 is a maximum in a batch according to her.

Keep your phone near to you and standby money for medical :D

Hope it helps those who still waiting for the call!

I'm assuming 3k refers to Jetstar asia. I'm a crew with them now, Trust me its stressful be well prepared okie. Once u grad from training(provided you MUST pass your EP, if not retain). Everyday before fly they will shoot u with EP question very stressful indeed.

roaster depends... basically i only work 15 days per month then rest off days.
benefits they will brief you more once u sign ur contract like dental, Mc etcs.

as for senior crews some are bad some are very nice .. depends your luck :D

Gd luck .. but i do regret at time joining this job :( i hope 2 yrs faster past so i do have any bond and can quit!


thanks for sharing candiesboy. Well I guess theres always those bad nuts in every job but its up to us on how we cope. I hope that I'll have an OK time settling in though...and be nice to me if we end up flying together one day candiesboy! hehehe...
btw i read today's promotion in the papers that JQ will start direct flights to melbourne and 3K will start direct flights to Auckland sometime next year.? thats really exciting news!

Haha lovesong, but you say your friend says you made it through right? So your waiting is perhaps just a little less agonizing than us? Heh.

Anyway for a good 8 hours I was on JQ planes today so couldn't switch on my hp was switched off all this while, good to know there were no calls today!

On a side note, when I arrived at changi airport, one of the JQ cc who was assisting during my interviews in July was going on a flight. I almost jumped onto him to ask if he knew what was going on but decided against it in the end. Hehe.

floatingdog, nothing is safe if you have not signed the offer letter. Yes, her mgr (Cxxxx) said I got in.. I think you should have asked him.. hehe.. Which guys? Chinese or Malay?
