Evening fellas,

Just filling in the application now and got to the end bit and have a quick question regarding the references required on the application form. Basically, the only people who for me would fit the criteria they ask for this (i.e knows you professionally, in checking/training etc etc) for me would be the training managers at my current outfit. However, they are, in general, a complete bunch of pricks and if they got wind I was planning on leaving and for whatever reason I ended up staying they would no doubt make my life hell. In fact, I wouldn't even put it past them not to sabotage the application altogether (as they have done to other guys historically). Has anybody else been in this situation? If so, what did you do? Do they only contact these people in the event you actually accept an eventual offer? Any suggestions at all? Bit confused right now to be honest!!
Anybody know anything about this?

Thanks.

I believe they wait until you have successfully completed the assessment before contacting any references. ( I had a pass letter 7 weeks ago and I dont think they have contacted any of mine--course that could be a bad sign!)
In general I would always try to contact my references to give them a heads up and ask their permission to use them as a reference.
In the case of managers and chief pilot one would hope that these people would merely be professionals and therefore should not really require any advance notice.....you may be better off to list them and just wait?

Unhappy

Received this yesterday! Can anybody that works for Qatar verify this? Thanks!


Dear Sir,

I am sorry to inform you that Qatar has stop accepting application for all jobs at this point. They are overloaded with pilots at this time. We work with other clients that you might be interested in.

Paramount continually receives new job opportunities and therefore we invite you to register/update your application on our website at Flight Crew Leasing and Recruiting Services - Paramount Aviation Resources Group, Inc.. This will ensure that you are advised of any changes in the requirements as well as new vacancies that may become available in the future.

Please let me know if I can help with any other client.

Best Regards,

Victoria

Paramount is a recruitment agency that was doing some of the selection for Qatar. They obviously were told their services are not required for the time being. Whether or not this is an indication of anything is to be seen. As I posted several days ago they were supposedly told that recruitment would slow while they concentrate on clearing out the over-filled pool.

AIRFRANCE PILOTS AT RISK

The article says that the 450 pilot concerned by this are the ones with more than 25 years service with Air France, and it's a voluntary leave with a prime in the pocket , and it is not immediate , to be achieved by 2015 .....

At the moment, QR are not exactly desperate for Pilots as they were last year.
By the end of this year, when a lot of guys are done training, rosters and things should look better in general.
Even the new NTSO are assigned the 330 due to no space on the 320.
Ofcourse they will need Pilots for a VERY long time, but at the moment I personally don't think they need them urgently..
So nobody will be given 9 months leave. IMO!
Ofcourse anything could happen.


Yes benefits for parents, siblings, and extended family.
There is a list in the mail. (brother in law, mother in law, etc.)
10 ID50 and or ID90 total.

SO to 330

Now I wonder why people leave the company..... people with a lot of experience to the 320,, for 3-4 years.... then moving to CAP on the same a320....... 10 years stuck on the a320... WELL DONE QR!!! and they still think why people leave??...

Tail,

It is an unfair industry. A lot of things depend on luck, and that applies to almost everywhere.

Stick35,

If you're in the system, you WILL be called.
These were my assumption from what I see, but guys on holding pool will get their chance.
Don't stress it mate.

Tali,

The word on the street is that the shiny, new 787 fleet will be largely crewed by pilots sourced from the A320 fleet. We will see if that actually happens. Potentially 60 787 airframes at QR would require a lot of A320 pilots down the line (of course not all 787 pilots would come from the A320 - but evidently a substantial number - if plans do not "change").

Again, it will be interesting to see how the 787s are crewed.
