Note that as a DEC you may get looked after alot better than F/O's, SO's etc BUT you still will get worked hard!! Chances are you will get accomodation provided, but at this stage there is a housing issue; however depending on your train of thought, co.housing or finding your own villa has its pro's and cons.

Negative update for me also,still waiting. I hope we all fellow swimmers get a good answer soon ! Shaggy 330 did you ask them what is the reason for your rejection? Im interested to know because that will give us a better understanding of their way of thinking.
that will give us a better understanding of their way of thinking.
HAHAHAHAHA, the sane cannot understand the insane. Like I keep mentioning, its a chaotic mess in the backend. You all call yourselves "swimmers" which, funny to me, makes me think your all sperm? LOL
As mentioned before, apply to other carriers and take the job if it comes first. QR, unless you come as a DEC or an F/O will not be worth your 12 - 16months of wasting your time; as well as the new bond for FTSO's.
The QR game is a dangerous one. I've passed the SO selection last January, and some of you know what happened later with the age story. The post-interview was just a disaster for me, lost jobs in between because of the waiting, checking my e-mails the whole day like a crazy guy...etc your daily life is basically screwed and on hold, not moving forward. its horrile and stressfull. However, I wrote back to QR about the age issue, and they accepted to put me back on track. Since, as you all, been In the holding pool with an uncertain time frame.
As much as I wanted to work for QR, I asked my self was it wise to wait for something that might never come, and that might put your life, and all who depends on it at risk ?

Well thanks, Disagreeable, for giving us an upgrade, since we´ve been treated more like s#&t lately. I just hope there is not only one ovule-job down the road for all of us
It is extremely sad though, that the only fragmented info that we manage to get is through this channel. It is disgraceful and disrespectful of HR and it is giving a bad image to a company that could do so much better otherwise. Shame on those people...
But the good news for some might be that out of all those swimmers, many have given up, more precisely refused to take this kind of mistreatment anymore. I have three collegues that have been waiting since spring with no news, offers in hand, no answerings to their mails, and meantime got a job with EK and the Other airline. So HR might have a nasty surprise once they begin to try bringing people in. And all it would take is to give some decent info...
As much as I try not to get shaken by Disgreeable and others, it seems they could be right after all, that only us desperate souls with no other options still keep on waiting...
Jmodel, thanks for your info, keep it rolling if you can.
