No, your application is being accepted or rejected by the decision of the recruitment department. Most people there have the power to invite you to the interview, based on your qualification. Within the interview/assessment, which consists of three stages (skill test, interview and sim check) you have to pass every stage to get to the next one. After the Sim check, you will get an email "within 4-6 weeks" where stated wether a pass or fail of the assessment.
As far as I am informed : Thereafter it is up to the Fleet Department and their ability/availability of training capacities and priorities to train you. NTSO are bottom list priority. So as soon as there will be enough supervision captains and free simulator capacities etc available, they will plan for the next batch of people who have passed the assessment. Unfortunately/Fortunately it is not all about a good handshake and who you know. Of course, things like that will always help you along your way. But if you are no local (in that case qatari), even as UAE citizen, you will undergo the same procedures as any other foreigner.
Do you know anyone inside to make my application process on fast track . Pls private msg me.Whenever i call HR in Doha they say you will be contacted. Is Paul prenzel or mathew hall responsible for this position? Again thanks for the insight.
sorry, im affraid i cant give you any number. if i were you and lived close to doha, id just drop by and check personally. combine it with visiting a friend, so youre flexible with times in case they are not available and you wouldnt have anything else to do.
Both myself and a friend interviewed after March..(April to be exact) and we just heard positive news. There does seem to be a priority system on what they are doing quickest....his said he should have a contract within 2 weeks for FO position and mine said 6 weeks for a contract as Captain. Im sure depending on aircraft, experience and position there is a huge disparity depending on oerational requirements. If you havent had bad news I would expect the good news to be coming though.....
Congrats on the offer!!! Did they offer you the 320 or the wide body?? When in April did you attend the recruitment exercise? I came in on the 14th April and just checking as I havent heard a thing from them.....
I interviewed April 07th.... Many of us heard something this week. Both of us had applied as wide body. My letter so far has only said congratulations on being selected as captain... And that a formal offer and fleet allocation would be coming in next 6 weeks. Cheers!

Hey guys its been 6 weeks and still no fleet assinment and no email of contract ......@ 21 lancer and word on your end .. I know one guy who has already recieved his contract and fleet assignment he interviewed with me and also did the sim at the same time. My pass email came within 2 weeks after interviewing in doha on the 29 of Feb ....... Any word from anyone
Part of the process with any company here in the Gulf, is a security-background check to your home country, the time to obtain this varies depending on where you have lived..so some may hear before others...
in fact all the 3 of us that interviewed on the 29th of February already received the the formal employment offer for DEC and one even received fleet allocation. We are now standing by for joinning date. I think you've interviewed on the 28th. Nevertheless our time table was 3 weeks for the congratulations email and then 4 weeks more for the employment offer.
