I know guys who have 7 kids .. no one cares how many kids you have. Moreover QA does not sponsor your kids, you do. they enter the country on a family visa based on your resident / work permit. QA does however pay a certain amount towards school fees but only for a maximum of 3 kids, after that its up to you to pay. Keep in mind School fees in Qatar and very high.

Do you know if the health insurance cover the whole family regardless of the amount of children or is it only for wife and 3 kids

Over a month after interview and still no word. This after being told during the road show that they are so desperate don't be surprised to hear within a week, and then being told by the team on the day that we would hear within 3 weeks!

I am aware that they have to do certain background checks and that this is a huge recruitment drive however, surely they could issue conditional offers of employment so the candidate's know's roughly where they stand!

I was wondering about accomidation and I see that there are a few spots outside of Doha that are close by the airport, namely Al-Wakrah and Um-Said. They look very close to the airport, does anyone know what living in these smaller towns is like. I mean is it nicer, quiter? Is there suitable accomidation?

Whats the driving time like? I hear that Doha traffic is pretty bad so might be quicker to the airport from these towns than from some parts of Doha.

How about facilities?

I am interested to know when you become liable to repay the Bond on the fast track SO scheme.
If I turn up and they have put me on a different fleet, or in totally unacceptable accomodation, can I go before I am online, or am I liable for the lot from the day I turn up?

Does anyone know what the process is for the HR department after your assessment? (assuming you were successful). What I mean is what is left to do? Do they contact previous employers, do a criminal search, etc etc?

Thanks

Hi guys,

Im just filling in the recruitment checklist and i wanted to confirm something.

LST = latest skills test, does that mean a route check?

LPC = latest proficiency check, does that mean sim check?

Thanks guys.

Thanks. Feeling better not being the only one.

Is it true they may assign you a WB, and at short term tell you "sorry, you go on the 320". It might be a problem for me as I'd need some off days in a row to get back home to see my family staying home.

Off days in a row WB: 5 to 6

Off days in a row 320: be happy if you have 3

Anyone experience?

Off days in a row WB: 5 to 6
That used to be the case on the 777 fleet but those are days gone by, same goes for the 330 fleet. Once upon a long time ago we used to have 8 days off in a row on that fleet.. 1 aircraft soon became more than 30 and that was the end of that, same holds true for the 777 fleet, now nearing 30 aircraft in the fleet and growing, and with the new found duty time proceedure it makes it even worse, for F/O's in particular. I fly with many guys that have greater than 100hrs in a month, try to squeeze 6 days off in a row into that.. Not a chance mate. ..
Think.

Planning a commuting lifestyle in this place is a mistake. You will only find yourself wanting to leave, or staying and hating it..

Some just learn to live with it.. And compromise


Poisoned by compromise

Hey guys,

I heard a voice that next year they could offer commuting contracts also for who is already working...

Is there something "true" in this?

Thanks for the info. So whatever 320 or WB, you fly like hell. Well, it does not disturb me much, but if you cannot align several days off in a row, that might be a decision not to come. By the way what are the new duty time regulation. Any link on the net? Could you post an example of monthly schedule on T7 or 330?
