As far as I know, the Security Clearance is a background process if you may say! So unless QR asks you to submit your criminal/violations record or provide a Good Conduct Certificate well before your DOJ, it should be more of a routine procedure! I think it also depends on which country you come from!
For the safety record, you should be able to obtain this from your previous employer I suppose (No accident/incident report).

Hello there.

I am going for an interview now in may, and have been looking for information on the following scenario and not found it:

I am invited for the second officer - fast track, have 3300 hours copilot on a turboprop, no jet. I would like to know for how long I would be operating as a second officer, until getting the first officer upgrade? Also what is the salary for second officers?

Kind regards, 1975

Good news that they're still interviewing SO, as we're on hold it means things are moving on.


Normally (once again, if I'm wrong, please correct me) you're gonna be SO for 6-8 months.

For the salary, you've a thread talking about it, usually 2000$ for SO

But 1975 is going fo SO FAST TRACK, not NTSO. So it means that we are still in the same position more or less....

6-8 months for Fast Track... 8-10 for a NTSO (from the current scenario)

Also, the pay is 10000QR with housing and 16000QR without housing.
Current situation -- no housing given to SOs. Hence takeaway 16000QR.

The carrier runs a scholarship programme for young Qataris, sponsoring ambitious youngsters to train as second officers, and plans to open this to foreign citizens
Interesting....

Just curious, what does annual pilot attrition look like at QR? How many pilots resign or are fired annually (on average)? 100-200 pilots departing annually? Obviously new hiring will need to cover departing pilots as well...

QR housing

Regarding the housing situation....

I knocked back an offer in Jan of this year because of various family issues, but am looking at applying again.

I understand that co housing is gone (due to numbers of new hires) but I wanted to know how easy/difficult it is to find your own accom.

I will have a wife and 2 small kids (3yrs and 6 months) coming with me so I'd need a 3br place.

Does the 10,000 cover a place?

Also, what about furniture and appliances etc, are they expensive?

Cheers

Formal Offer of Employment

Hi All,
Just a quick question.
I received the positive e-mail a month ago, for the position Fast Track Second Officer. In the mail said it is seeking for approval to employ me and it should not take mroe than 6 weeks to receive the contract with fleet allocation.
Did it ever happen that someone who received a positive mail, NOT received the formal offer of emplyoment?
Cheers,
C U in Doha.

Waiting since then...

Anyone ever been asked to fill out the hours summary again and submit it back AFTER the interview? They asked about 10 days after the interview, I submitted it to them again and haven't heard from them for over 2 weeks now.

Goodmorning

i wanted to ask if someone knows what is the recruitment policy of Qatar Airways refering to non visible scars in the body(from surgery incision). I recently attended the cabin crew recruitment process and although i passed the first day of the process , during the second day, when we were taking the english test, they were asking each one of us privately if he/she had any scars, even no visible. I told them that i had two from appendix removal incision-very old one, and from breast augmentation surgery. I was not chosen after all but since i wanted to reattend an open dayin the future, maybe in Emirates, i wanted to know if someone knows sth about this matter (scars, breast augmentation). Thank you in advance

Thumbs up @fleria

Hi fleria,

Try the following forums, they might be more helpful than this thread(this thread is targeted for Pilots).
