Qantas Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Qantas in August 2009.
Interview Details – 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 Question – Where do you see yourself in five years. View Answer
Negotiation Details – 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.
