Well all the same

I haven't been visiting long time but looks all the same

Rumors about a murder in Doha committed by a qr pilot - as usual nobody comments, as usual put under the carpet

Now everybody has to do an aptitude test, surprisingly and give their actual address

Well qr was the first airline, where I'd didnt do a psycho test, will be interesting with what they come up now

Rumors about housing allowance increase, believe it when u have it on your pay check

And don't forget, the csd/cs is the boss of the aircraft, do not interfere, otherwise u r out

Training upside down because of 787 grounding, cannot blame them actually, all plans crossed.

Rents increasing in Doha again, what to do, like our beloved fellows say

Newspaper announcing 3 per cent inflation, what a non sense, prices went up a lot, especially for schools and food, but no the country is so shiny, 5 star, just log on in www.********.com it couldn't be simpler

Alliance card was the best we had, now look at the new terms and conditions

And not to forget, your annual leave ticket is not that really confirmed anymore, if the aircraft is overbooked, you have lost

Good luck to all

Changing Times....

Well, if you aren't crazy before you come here, a few months of having to deal with this operation will!

Jeap u r right, after some time, maybe u need some test

Some people need anyway one, whom, I do not comment

Am here long time, some things do not bother me anymore, if they don't want, I don't want, easy, part a is ruling, and what ever anybody tells otherwise, just show it to me, where it is written, that's it, then I believe it, otherwise f*** off.

What to do, most of them, especially in the office, had never a proper management course. So what do u expect?

From this murder I heard some days ago

As I said, as usual put under the carpet, like everything in this country.

Cheers

DOJ

Just to share the info I have.

I called the recruitment office the other day.
She told me that she was about to receive the training plan for the autumn 2013.
Then they will start calling people according to date of the initial interview and so onÖ
I donít know if everyone is concern. But at least Non Rated FO are required.


Best of luck

This is one of the best pages on this thread!

Nice to see that many others know the reality of this place!

The Housing allowance is just a rumour! if they increase the housing allowance then the company housing people will feel left out! So if anything it will be a base salary or extra payment , and then they can remove it at any time.

BUT, if the housing allowance or base salary goes up, so will the rents!!!! U better believe it!

Yes its not as cheap as everyone thinks here. Some things are cheap but where you save is on the Fuel price (27c ltre), no tax (mostly), rent (mostly because of allowance), and taxi's. Thats it.

Take the job. After a year waiting like this it is just silly to reject any other opportunity.

"For you there is not a big difference between 320 and 330 only mass and balance and few other things"

are u ok pilotofdoha, or do u need an aptitude test?

of course there is a huge difference for him, especially later, when he is checked out

so don't talk non sense here, please

cheers

Recentering a bit the topic, what do we know about current Interview rates ? Are some of them still being conducted ? I hope not...
While the 787 nightmare liner issue is not helping at all, and I really wish and hope that Boing will find a final solution in the very near future, rumors had it that there will be no Second officer (NT) for this year. Meantime, we know that some of us did receive offer letter last NOV for the very same position. I know that the NTSO batch that joined the company couple of months ago been countiniousely busy with training and are currently undergoing their type rating.

I hope that each and everyone will get to something.

@QR

I can 'confirm the rumours', No NTSO in 2013. That's what I was being told by Recruitement. I have a feeling that tomorrow will be one of those typical 'Qatari Talent Pool update' sundays.

Well, that is the main problem. There are so many contradictory rumours being told by each and everyone that no one knows what to believe anymore ! Same period of time while the rumour was being spread, we were receiving the letters...go figure !

When you look at the letter, with your name on, signatures of HR people...etc its for real ! But as we all know, that is in no way a contract, and the aviation game can be fuuuuuull of surprises...

@ITO

Hey man,

Yes I know you're story.
You 100% deserved that offer letter and I guess they finally figured that out in Qatari HR. Your story confirms that anything is indeed possible at QR.
Im sure you're ok and will receive a DOJ in due time.. You'll be the first NTSO to go there when the situation picks up.
I hope for a genuine update that focusses on each and every ones specific situation and tells us what we can expect.
