Sounds rather strange doesn’t it, charging applicants to interview with you. It is usually the other way around, employers paying for flights, taxis, accomodation to entice employees to work for them.
Well not for low cost Australian Airline Jetstar who are charing applicants $89 for the interview process. This does not even cover the cost of the medical if the applicant is successful. According to the article in The Age:-
Airline spokesman Simon Westaway said the $40 fee for a personality test and $49 for a security check for job applicants was “a cost recovery process”.
Maybe they feel that their brand and the attraction of being a flight attendant outways the cost?
