Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Flight Attendant in Qantas


Was a great work environment and loved it as this has been my dream job since I was younger. Travel benefits are great and it’s a lifestyle more than a job

Professional, informative, standard airline recruitiment procedure

It was consistent with all airline recruitment procedures . Possibly a little more comfortable and relaxed . The interviewers were very good , professional and concise and made us feel very relaxed and comfortable.


Airfare staff benefits


Fly out of BNE airport only not Sunshine Coast

A cabin crew member is not a job , its a lifestyle

Becoming a flight attendant is a whole new world as everything during the initial 8 weeks training is intense, demanding & nothing like you have ever done before as mostly all you experience is so foreign & only relevent to the role. You have to pass exams twice a year & there is a very small window to get answers wrong & is not looked upon lightly by your manager if you have a major fail, you get stood down until you resit & pass a one on one training day to be able to return to work. This is also governed by CASA . You spend a lot of time away after a few years approx 200+ hours a mnth, friends stop calling to ask you to any event as you are always away, & when your home you are busy doing playing catch up before you are off again. Most family events, B'days, chrissy etc you won't be home for. In return you get to travel the world while being paid very well, benefits, staff travel , holidays are generous & most colleagues are accepting, helpful as they were once in your shoes when starting out. Its a fast paced workplace, customers can be demanding, hotels noisy so you need to manage all this. Your managers on the ground have a 3 year life span before getting replaced as they are only ticking boxes to meet their KPI's & the company could save alot of $ if they concentrated on front line staff for ideas in service, dealings with customers, must i go on as front line staff solve all complaints, problems , delays daily & deal face to face with customers & hear & deal with all the issues they experience & know how to recover most situations immediately & effectively.


Staff travel, travel while being paid, generous annual leave, ongoing training, meeting new people & going to new places, colleagues, excelkent superannuation, uniforms provided, going up to the cockpit - take-off, landing


Long hours, going to work back of the clock with time differences, missing family events, maintaining personal friendships/ relationships out of work, health, diet
