Go get a 777 type rating, get coveted 777 experience and expand your cultural horizons in Doha and the Middle East. Don't view it as a challenge - view it as an opportunity. IMHO, three years will fly by....... No job is perfect - so, set your expectations appropriately - don't expect perfect!

I'd do it - but that is just me and I don't know your context.

Good luck!

So what is now the Deal ...

Myself and some others already recieved the Letter of employment ,which in my eyes is the will to employ us under circumstances which are a) till d) if I can recap by memory ...
So ,we are now in the pool ...whats the announcement to those who just recieved a "yes ,u passed selection " and got in the Pool ?
any difference ?

I know u dont have a contract till day 1 ,but honestly didnt all you guys already flying there accept this and also put "all eggs oin one basket"?

How long was your timeline ...any delys ..any changes you can see ?

cheers

Absolutely NOT!!!! I had applied to airlines in the USA (which I'm still in a pool with one airline), Qatar, UAE and China. Of course I would rather stay in my home country, but my options we limited until those old geezers retire. Although Emirates was my second choice (USA being the first), I haven't heard from them. China was my last choice, if I didn't hear from Qatar. I was fortunate to get hired and it took 8 months from app to training.

My advice is to have patience and don't put all your eggs into one basket. You don't have a job until you show up for up for training. You will be greatly disappointed if QR decides they don't need all those a/c's they have on order.

Smile The lengths people go to to join QR

Is Qatar Airways some sort of swimming club? Lot of folk seem to be splashing about in that medieval backwater.

Are here maybe pilots who fly for Qatar which were already employee of the airline? Like the thread in the 'Wannabees' section from working as a cabin crew first before they go into the cockpit..

Cheers

Angry it's time to leave.they are recommending ours to leave.

Dear Applicant,



Thank you for your continued interest in joining the Qatar Airways Flight Deck team.



As discussed in our previous email we will be updating you regularly on the progress of those candidates in our flight deck talent pool and hope to invite you to join us when our operational requirement permits, however at this time there is no significant change to our manpower requirement.



We do understand that due to the uncertain timeframe for holding pool candidates, you may be considering other career options. As such, please advise us if would like to remain in our talent pool or would prefer to be withdrawn at this stage for any reason.



We will again contact you at the end of November with another update.

In my opinion the temperament of the ´Updates´get more and more negative.
The first email still gave me some hope of getting called at the end of this year.
The ´end of july´ update diminishes that hope and leaves me wondering if they will ever call me at all (or just delete the talent pool when the 1 year interview to DOJ expires...)
In the email it was stated 'We hope to invite you when operational requirements permit' Also it was not adressed to me as a person anymore, but just to 'applicant'.
Maybe I'm a pessimist but the whole e-mail was short and cold.

Besides that, what happend that recruitement came to such an abrubt stop?

Thanks guys, and goodluck to all of you.
