Thanks for the 787 update Daft Wader. I am sure those A320 pilots are excited about the new technology and more longhaul flying opportunties.

Don't worry guys, they're just overbooked! guys who arrived a few month ago for the 320 won't start their training before november! just be patient!
the good news is that they still need pilots!

made redundant Aug 2011, applied Oct 2011
selection 7 Feb 2012
good news march 2012
offer 9 april 2012
holy miles email in June
30th July : email stating that I am placed on talent pool
no news until now.
Still jobless with a 3 kids family.
no valid type rating now

I understand that preference is given to airline experiences rather than mil jets or business aviation.
life is tough.

fingers crossed for 2013. Otherwise I don't know how my family will eat next year ...

Similar situation, similar dates, only absolutely no news whatsoever since the signing of the offer in may (besides confirmtion of the acceptance). No replies to e-mails either .

A bit disappointed, at least a little "we know you´re still there, give us two or three more months pls" would make a huge differnce in perception.

Meanwhile refusing less tempting offers, hopefully not regretting it later on. Anyway... Anyone knows if an expired IR is a problem upon joining?

Probably a very stupid thing to ask. But I really want to join Qatar. Problem is in just about to start my pilot training. Think I'll only finish by 2014 (hour building included) any idea of I stand a chance to get into Qatar as a second officer / first to build my way up? Thanks.

Hi lads!
Does any body know how Many days before an interview HHRR notifies You of your flight to Doha ?

I applied a few months ago and arranged the interview for 2nd officer fast track on sept 17th ( 10 days to go) and still without any News of the flight to DOH

Any recommendations ?

Recommendation(for whatever related to Qatar Airways from now..) :
Patience is the key!

They will send you flight+hotel details approx 3-4 days before interview.



All the very best!

Finally got the email of update,im still in the talent pool until end of November when I get a new update. Also that email seemed a bit cold,almost like 'we dont want u here at this time but u can wait if u want or find another job' . Anyone has any information from inside? How long this recruitment holding will last? And the ones who are holding are we expected to start when they tell us to start? Or they could be flexible with the dates?
