Do you fly economy or business to the interview. And what hotel do candidates usually stay?

Having just looked at flight global jobs I see that Qatar are using a recruitment agency to obtain (aero personnel) pilots. My offer of employment bond is 3 years and having to pay for 18 months 5500 riyals out my salary whereas the agent is offering bond of 2 years and no mention of the reduced salary. Anybody else care to comment?

First off
PozativeR8 figures are quite accurate and i would also say on the conservative side. The selection process not a walk in the park, you must be well studied or you will be going home just as soon as you arrive.

Do QR provide laptop for new joiners with cbt and company manual included?
NO, your responsible to make sure you have the tools to accommodate.. (i.e. your own laptop)

Do you fly economy or business to the interview. And what hotel do candidates usually stay?
Business class usually, hotel are dependent on hotel space available in the country, but these days it's usually the Qatar Airways Oryx Rotana Hotel. it also could be anywhere in the city, Marriott, Ramada, Sheraton.. etc..etc.. it's not a big city and transport will be arranged so it does not matter where you stay.

Yeah, but you get 1500QR to fill the tank of your porsche

I'm gonna apply to Lion air as well, after paying for a TR and paying to fly, they offer you an iPod, after a year, if you have not been sick .

Hello

Considering to apply for an F/O position. Current on the A320 for a loco in Europe and would be interested in joining however wouldn't bother making the move to fly the A320 again! Is there any chance to get on the A330/777?

Regards,

The grass always appears greener on the other side.

Balls of fire, it is my choice. You may feel it's stupid considering it maybe where you wish to be, being an old boy.

Dont worry Miguel. everyone here has oun desires and needs.
The right choice for me couldnīt be yours.
Everyone has one point of view, and usually can be different from others.
There are a lot of reasons for a professional pilot leave his actual company and move to another around the world, eg. security, life style, family, roster, carrer growth, money, etc.
Once divert, never look back.
I donīt think you are stupid.
You did your choice and I wish you be happy about it. Thats the matter!

Hey look it in this way ... he is getting a very good retirement salary from BA, when you try to quantify 'very good' at least double it ... and he is getting the peanuts (compare to a BA retirement pay-check) for his grandsons Christmas presents!
