Angry Dear Not a pilotofdoha

pilotofdoha,
You have done nothing in the above recent post other than to prove you're a managment plant, and if not, a complete imbecile.

You call me a racist, but then you email me about all the Indians nationalities screwing up your chances of getting hired. Your a selfish hypocritical fool.

Multiple attempts via PM to get me to meet you, and multiple attempts to try to link anything i say to being negative/wrong or being many logins.
If i am so wrong, where are the massive numbers of people being hired? many on this forum waiting.
Why do a lot of people leave to go across the pond??
Why are the many poor SOs not being communicated to about why they are sitting around for 12+ months waiting for training??
Why are the hold pool people left guessing?
Want me to continue?

You cannot even prove me wrong, because what i say is correct because its reality, it may be a harsh reality, andyou may not like it, but it is what many see here.

If u can provide any relevant information to this thread then do so, you seem to boast a lot about your contacts in QR but PilotofDoha you fail to give anything of substance.

All i can say to you is there may be a reason your not hired yet, and praying wont fix that.

Never contact me again.

I was ready to go to Doha, a few days ago, as DEC on 777....
Changed my mind two days before travel. Prefer to stay with present employer.
Q.A. is not the paradise for aviators. Specially when there is no commuting.
Extremely upset, when I received the ticket, in economy, rather b.c.
I suposed to be a captain on 777....not a bagger...Not a good impression.
Anyway, this is my opinion, right or not (time will indicate), to leave those folks in Doha, alone, without my presence.
Good luck for all of you, trying to enter this airline.

WOW!!!! Turn down a potential job because of not getting a business class ticket. I guess you have a good job, and don't have to trouble yourself. Must be nice!! Anyway, leave the job for someone wow really wants it.
By the way, they always give everyone an economy ticket. They upgrade you at the airport.

Well, maybe if this happens often enough people will start being treated differently/accordingly.

bdd, south prince, if you like this kind of treatment , then run behind them....
Personally after 35 years in the cockpit, i don't like this kind of treatment.
Ending, my present job is very good, and i have to deal with persons who
are generous and cool.
And this job was founded, when waiting for Q.A. to give me a joining date...

Believe me , my impression is that as a captain you treated very nice here.
The rest , I keep myself out of the discussion.
Cannot complain ,and enjoy the ride .
I just know the feelin of a lot here .

Just my 50 cents....

Cheers

@Disagreeable

Because they have interviewed u does not mean your automatically in! Especially if your an NTSO!
If you get asked for reinterview then thats the way it is. And it seems to be a good chance of that happening for some. Also it will be a different hiring process so no walk in the park if it happens. And based on the previous hiring/fail rates it may be needed??
Can you give more details? Do you mean all NTSO waiting their Feb update are going to be reinterview before any DOJ?? If not, who are those concerned by what you said and why for some? What is the new process?

Just for curiosity, we’ve seen NTSO sent to the A330 fleet, did it happen for the 777 fleet? If not, does somebody know why the difference?

P.S:To NTSOs, maybe not a bad idea to get a A320 type rating while you’re waiting to put yourself at the same level of CTC’s or Tunisian guys already type-rated?

Could somebody give any indication of how long it normally takes to get a reply from DEC application for interview date? How much notive is then given for interview?
Is this done by phone or email?
Cheers

Thanks Scruff, im trying to work out how the present advert can achieve its April or shortly thereafter start deadline, since it was only placed on Xmas eve. Given a standard 3 month notice period things would have to move pretty fast for selection.
I will wait and see

Interview Question.. Name 10 bad points about yourself ... No1 - can be impatient at times

I haven't seen the new advert,therefore don't know the requirement.

What I can say is that the interview is very freindly and its an enjoyable day with Qatar Airways.I can't find anything negative with them,except a little patience required,due to there rather large recruitment.

I hope you get an interview and enjoy the 5 star treatment while on interview.

Good luck and enjoy.

I have only positive views so far cloud999 as a DEC.

Just spoke with one of the recruiters and they stated Qatar has suspended hiring for FO's and may resume late summer.

Good to hear your positive comments scruff. With such large expansion I am sure patience will be required at times, but I am sure thats nothing new to most of us.
I hope I get the chance to see for myself, despite some adverse comments on this forum I see a lot of good points with QR, it suites my personal situation also, hence the application.

That would just be a waste of money, since QR requires the rated pilots with less than 500 hours on type to redo the type rating. This is one of the things causing the huge backlog they have in their training department.

Look at their fleet and orders page here.

Its has not been updated for a while now because the have 5x B787 and not 1.
But they have received about (from memory) 7-9 A320 in 2012. So I think they wil receive another 7 A320 (classics) this year. They will also get another 5 B787's and lets take a wild guest of 7 B777. That gives them 7+7+5 =19 frames for 2013. Times that with 18 ( 9 Capt's and 9 FO's per aircraft) you will get a possible 342 pilots for the year(2013).When I was interviewed they said they need 700 pilots in 2013 So unless QR already have a few 100 FO's and FT/NT SO, walking around Doha at the moment doing nothing or are currently in training I cannot see them stop/suspend recruiting FO's.

Next year they will receive the last few A320's and the first A380 will arrive in January 2014. So the only really big deliveries will be the B787 and the B777. Because there is going to be quite a long time before the A320(neo) and A350 will arrive in Doha.

This is just what I think but stand to be corrected.
