    I recently had a job interview with qantas and the experience i had was rather conventional and not particularly memorable. That being said, i got the job and the culture is quite negative.

    Digital Marketing Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Qantas (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was first invited to do a recorded video interview, where I was asked pre-written questions and did not interact live with a representative – a bit intimidating but it was fine. I then had a casual phone call with a marketing manager, who was wonderfully transparent about the role, responsibilities, and salary to ensure it would be a good fit in both directions. Finally, I had an in-person interview with two members of the marketing team. While I wasn't given the position, the marketing manager I'd been interacting with gave me a call to let me know his reasons for choosing another candidate. In every other interview I've done elsewhere, I was rejected either via an impersonal email or never heard back at all, so I was really impressed by the fact that he took the time to call and explain his reasoning. Even though I didn't get the job, it was one of the best interview experiences I've had anywhere!

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Qantas in August 2009.

    Interview

    It happened very quickly and I didn't know I got the job until hr called to verify my address. That should have been a sign as to how well departments communicate. The interview was rather informal and the main manager asked me why I wanted to work there since there wasn't anywhere for me to go.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. It was made clear to me in the interview that they were offering the max comp available. It was certainly fair and competitive for airlines.

    Cabin Crew Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I applied online in mid/late October. Approximately a week later I received a link to an online questionnaire with standard behavioural questions. There's no time limit so you have plenty of time to carefully plan out your answers!

    In early November I received an invitation to an assessment centre in December. The interview consisted of:
    1. A presentation / document collection / height check
    2. Group activity
    3. English comprehension test
    4. One-on-one interview

    The group activity was lots of fun and pretty relaxed. At each table 2 recruiters will be watching and assessing you, but try your best to ignore them and pretend they aren't there.

    The English comprehension was fairly basic and you have plenty of time to complete it. As long as you read the questions carefully, you'll be fine.

    The one-on-one interview was the most difficult part of the process, but still enjoyable. You will be asked general questions about your availability/base preferences, before going into more in-depth behavioural questions. They give you plenty of time to think about your answers, so try to stay calm and plan them out before you speak. You will be interviewed by actual Qantas flight attendants, so it's a great opportunity to ask questions and learn about the role!

    A few days later I received an email advising me I had progressed to reference checks. Now waiting to find out more!

    Occupational Rehabilitation Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Qantas.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from Talent Acquisition a week after submitting an application (Monday). I was told in the phone consultation that "the National Manager loved your application and is keen to get you in for an interview. He thinks you would be a perfect fit for the team". I was advised that interviews were to be held next week (Tuesday) with the National Rehabilitation Manager and Regional Safety Manager. I was also advised to clear my schedule and Talent Acquisition person would contact me in a few days to confirm the time.

    I waited to the end of the week with no phone call and made contact with Talent Acquisition myself on the Friday. You could imagine my surprise when I was told (by the same Talent Acquisition person as last phone call) "they earmarked a great candidate and interviewed them on Thursday". This comment was backed up with "but I haven't heard how they went. Are you still interested in the position if the other candidate fell over during the interview". I really didn't want to say yes, but I agreed to see if I could get an opportunity to speak directly with the hiring manager. I was once again advised by Talent Acquisition that she would contact me back, which never occurred. I received an email 4 weeks later to advise that I was unsuccessful.

    Very unprofessional!
