Is Qatar (QR) still interviewing?

I submitted my application about 2 months ago to Qatar Airways and still waiting for an email/phone call/etc. Are they still interviewing? Wonder when the last interview was accomplished.

Any July, August interviews!?

G-day all,

Just wanna know if there has been anyone through the interview process any time from July till now... If anyone did his/her interview in either July or August, please let us know. I have seen only one post from PilotofDoha who did his interview early July...

As far as I've heard, there hasn't been any interviews going on lately. Just wanna know if it's true or not.

Safe landings all

I have a friend waiting for SO training for the last 3 months post induction.There has been a hold on hiring for the last couple of months. Mainly due to the large number of inductees from Spanair on the 320 and a backlog of SO training.

July interview

I had an interview on the 4th of July applied for FO position just been put in the holding pool and an update in November expected! I am not expecting a start date until summer next year as I guess I will be right at the bottom of the talent pool.

talent pool

QR is trying to liquidate a % of pilots from the list since they have no space for the moment until 2013... They are expecting a large number of Auto-layoffs ...lol

Ive heard from a good source that NOV update guys are considered for 2013.

Good luck to every one !!

Having said that RK..QR is NOT the only airline recruiting 320 pilots.

What makes you think than any airline bankruptcy would mean further delays for the hold pool?

Spanair went bust because Qatar Airways cancelled their plans to buy the company. There was obviously some agreements in place to take their pilots.

Spanair went bust because it was in financial ruin..QR decided it was not a wise investment, so they declined.....

Qatar were in talks to buy the failing company. They didn't go ahead so the company went bust.

Spanair leaves passengers stranded after going bust


In those talks there may have been an agreement to interview the workforce.
Seems thier hold pool is pretty full now, so I doubt Qatar will be doing more interviewing in the near future.

still posting on PPrune since 1999, despite the morons they let on these days....
