I have been told that the selection process had changed in July this year. So it is quite new. You probably did the selection, like all of us, well before this change.

"To Be Confirmed" of course...

I logged on the QR website to update also and noticed that not only are the Pilots positions not offered anymore, but I can't even log in to update my application???? I've been hearing the same things about the failiure rate, but I have been told not to worry about the updating if you are in pool or on shortlist to be called.

Correct, you can not update your profile anymore. Says enough though.

Seems the whole career page on their website has changed, since the last time I checked anyways, and I also cannot find Flight Deck positions available. When I try to search for it, it comes up as no vacancies for that position.

Wonder what other changes will be coming along with this one.

yeah... cant find my application anymore on the website.. when i go to the "check your career flight-status" section and try to log in, it doesnt recognise my email/password combination i used for my original application either..

wonder if they are going to put in place a new online application form, or they just wiped the database clean...

Question You're in the pool!

Hi guys,
Any type rated FO passed the interview and got a joining date being unemployed by more than one year? This (frustrating ) waiting in the pool is bringing a lot of pilots to the lack of "recency"... Could it compromise the hiring process?
Cheers

...

if youre typerated why u dont try other Solutions if you cannot wait anymore ,I know its hard ,but with a 320 330 rating (I just assume u have those) theres plenty advertisment in Far East .For Record Pay .

Just an Input .

Also ,even me ,the most unrelaxed person when it comes to waiting ,has learned to just wait for it ...

Things will move soon ,Inshaallah!!

UP

Thank you UP... Unfortunately all the companies I tried to contact said that I need last flight within 6 months! My point if this could be the same requirement with QR at the time they will give me a joining date.. If they will!!!
Thanks again

Nice first post onedollar.

Tell us more about why they got terminated then?
Plenty of people here including myself are very happy.
Do your job, what you should be doing anyway, and have no problems.

Guys Seriously don't listen to such ridiculous comments.

One dollar, please expand? Why the terminations?


Also I wonder if the requirements at QR will change after they bring back the hiring page again for flight crew, and if the FTSO position will still be there. .

@onedollar

I have only one question.

Give me one reason why people don't execute a go-around when they are unstable ??

A go-around is like a "reset" and will not be punished. Further if you adhere to the OM-A you will have a good life!! SIMPLE, isn't it ?

Ooooh, the PARANOIA!
And WHAT grey areas?
It is black on white: If in doubt - GO AROUND!
And then you fill an ASR, go home and NOBODY will call you. Been there, done that. Many times.
You can not live your life in fear!
Cheers!

Onedollar,

Was your friend given a warning the first time something went wrong? Just genuinely wondering.

Guys! Anyone knows what is the future of the talent pool? Will we all get called in due time? And has the selection really changed like was mentioned earlier? Cheers

Since my joining date at QR it has been a positive experience.
Training was very slow but then it gave me more time with my kids which, by the way, love it here.
Now on line and flying a lot I abide to the rules and have nothing to be stressed about.
Nice working environement.
