Amiri01, does that mean it will be more difficult to be successful during the June session as numbers are getting close to what's required. From what I understood, the May session had 25 pilots while the June session will have 36 applicants. If they only need a few more, they can cherry pick from the remaining applicants. Makes me wish I had applied a few weeks before I did as chances would have been higher.
I honestly don't know exactly how many more we need. I just know that we need more but we are probably not too far off the required numbers (for now).
It wouldn't surprise me that if there are many candidates that are assessed as suitable from the June screening that the required number get firm offers and the remaining suitable candidates are retained on file to be offered jobs as vacancies arise.
Please be aware that I am not "in the know" with respect to manning issues and I am only going on what I have overheard while in the office. I could be incorrect in my interpretation of the situation but knowing the (current) fleet size and approximating the needs, I understand we are close to the required numbers.
Perhaps the recruiting company can enlighten anyone further regarding numbers.
The job advert provides alot of the info of what is required. Team player blah blah, once you take that on board and present yourself that way I would say you are 50% there.
The final interview is very straight forward, no difficult questions relatively short. I was over prepared, on Qatar history, Shamal winds, expected technical questions on previous type, a tell me about a time...... question etc, there was none. By the way if the above are asked, well tough.
The PC base questions are all available online, just need to Google for gouges with Emirates, Cathay etc. If not to good with math(s) then a bit of practice would be good. There are various books on speed math(s).
Important:- The tests are quick, DO NOT get bogged down trying to decide the right answer. Take a guess and move on. SOME tests allow you to go back and review, make sure you know how to do that and if in that particular test you can. There is no penalty for wrong answers.
To be honest it is quite a tough test, reread my first para, get your head sorted on how you can show that, the rest you either have or don't, you can only try and do your best.
We've been told that the Lufthansa management team have been dismissed by the Royal Family and that management will revert to Qatar Airways. Is this correct? I was just about to sign on the dotted line and this would be a big stopper as Qatar Airways Ts and Cs are woeful.
No one has responded to my emails in the Amiri office.
For anyone else interested in Amiri, you may want to look into this as well.
We are still waiting the official announcement. What you have said would appear to be correct, just substitute QA with QE. I wouldn't worry about signing and being committed as until probation period up only a weeks notice required by either party.
I also heard that the German management team have been dismissed, which is a great concern to me. It shows the environment there is dynamic (unstable). Package on offer is decent, but not sure what the management change will mean to the pilots as far as company culture and t&c's. Would like some more certainty about this. I was under the impression the Germans were doing a good job. Watch this space.
