You say, Maybe I was not so brilliant during the interview, that's why I was offered this fleet.


I can understand if you already fly the 320, then why would you want to come here. Please do not think that because you got offered the 320, means you did bad in your interview. Its simple, you either pass or fail. Fleet allocation is in the lap of the Gods.


I fly the 320 fleet here in Qatar, are you saying I must have not done very well at my interview ?


Maybe, with your views, it was a good decision that you did not come here.

Some years ago QR put applicants with extensive A320 experience on A330, but it seems nowadays the need for pilots on this fleet is minimal, while the A320 fleet is screaming for pilots... I guess that's why.

Supply and demand, right place right time and most important of all, what the policy is today may not be the policy tomorrow.






Who cares, does it really matter, a jobs a job and if you're not happy, do something about it. No point in dwelling on it.




You've got to understand, its their herd of camels and they will have whoever they want riding which ever camels they want, and if you don't like it, find another herd or wait your time here for fleet transfer which may take a while.

I would have said train set, but not sure many would have understood me.

I agree with you Black Pudding.
I'm waiting more than 10 weeks the contract and i don't care about the fleet. I hope only to receive it and join QR as soon as possible.

give them a call and e-mail. Back log in training so they don't want people coming and sitting a long time.

How long does it takes to receive a reply after applying? I did it more than 1 month ago and still waiting for the selection dates.

Open day

Is easier and faster to be shortlisted If you go to an open day? I know there is this notebook you write down your name during the open day but I'm not sure it's an advantage going there. They will be in South Africa Early March.

Process after Success email?

Hey guys

Could some one please explain what happens once you get the email saying you were successful in the selection process? and approx timelines involved?

Contract first? visa? do you find fleet allocation with contract or once you join there? when will you be given joining date? For normal SO is it pretty much a320 or any outside chance on a different a/c?

Also can I consider this email as if I've got the job? Because in the email they still refer to its an "application is on hold and will get back to you when the training slots are available."

Normal SO - Applied March 2011, update june, shortlist august, interview jan, email feb

Thanks

Congratulations ! Wish you all the best.
It would be interesting though to know if the mention "application is on hold and will get back to you when the training slots are available." is also in the E-mail FTSO, FO get ?

Well folks, I may be a gluten for punishment but I have decided to give it another go with QR. I will re apply in September this year.

This time however, I will book an hour at Oxford on the 320.
