Does anyone know what's going on with the SFI positions at QR. I have an interview in short term. Would like to know what is happening.

Also I have the T&C from several months ago. Any changes?

Thanks!!

From interview to getting on-line will take about a year.

Interview-Good News-Contract-Start Date confirmation-Notice-Join.

Then

Induction-RP-Medical-Ground Course-wait-wait-Type Rating-Company Sims-Line Training

Airport is delayed according to the news. So are the new planes. This may have an effect on the numbers joining and the numbers in the talent pool.

I made the right move and enjoy it here. But I guess this opinion is based on where you came from and your motivation for joining.

It Starts off at 8am with an Intro to the Company and Its Objectives (45mins)

Then it's the Tech Quiz... I think it was 60 questions. I found it a little challenging but this because i don't like people watching do my Exam (1hr)

Then if you pass you are given an interview.. Again around 1Hr. It's purely behavioural. Gives a time when you did this......???

Then if you pass you are are given a Sim assessment. Mine was in A320.. 2 ccts and on the second an APU fire.. Deal with it and land...

Oh i missed the Buffett for lunch.. All you can eat and a sleep between Interview and Sim..Because we got back to the hotel at 11pm at night..

Hi Freddi

Yes, you are right, it shows no vacancies for the flight deck crew in their website, but keep in mind that their career section in the website changed approx 40 days ago but there are still many applicants whom submitted their application way before this change. Hope you are one of them anyway.

Best of luck to you all

@flyingmachine01
During the 45 minute company presentation before the multiple choice exam, did the speaker give any indication about how many pilots their going to need next year? (700 in 2013 and another 700 in 2014 etc. etc...)
Also with aircraft deliveries, are they still expecting to get a new one delivered every 15 - 18 days? I was there in the begining of the year and thats what they told us. Thanks.( Hopefully they have updated their power point.)

Has anyone had any news on start dates, either by phone or email ....

It will be 1 year at the end of October since interview. No word about being in the 'Talent Pool' either. Nothing, apart from the standard acknowledgement for receipt of paperwork.

DEC T7

iQatar.....

They never actually mentioned an exact number of pilots needed..
But the aircraft orders were very consistent with what is mentioned on their website.. New aircraft arriving every 3 weeks.. It's absolutely crazy...

There biggest order is still the A350's range. Totalling around 80..

Thank you for your response startright. But if I remember right, there are people with almost no experience, that can perform very well in the sim too! Its a matter of preparation and chair flying.

Do you have a clue when the hiring out of the talent pool might continue again?

@startright

Thanks for all your post on PPRuNe and the info that you supply. But the big question all of us in the holding pool are: Will we all be given a contract and start date at some stage?
