You can request to move out of housing and take the allowance....it may take a month or two.
You can request a transfer to other housing....have had many friends transfer from Pink Villas to Holiday Villas...or Holiday Villas to Ain Khalid.
That normally takes a month or two.....there are other places but have heard the wait is 1-2 years?
Once you leave the company housing I don't believe you can return

It is all nice that they are expanding and i hope that the swimmers get a job soon. But there is 1 thing i do not understand: is there really a need of the customers from worldwide to fly to qatar? I mean, is there really a marketing investigation done to see if there was really a demand? I have the impression that the goal,of emirates and qatar is just to be the biggest and profitnumbers are not an issue.
I think you miss the point. DOH, as a destination, is not that big for QR. Basically, DOH is really just a transfer point. I can't tell for sure, but I'd guess that at least 90% of the pax are going through DOH, not to DOH. DOH is very nicely placed to be a hub, and that is also the focus of QR.

"The new airport is ""supposed"" to be already finished..it doesn't take too long I think..."
Freddie,
It was supposed to be completed by 2009 or 2010..( initial schedule)!
The opening has been postponed every 6 months for the last couple of years...

Good luck.

What difference does it make what level of experience other applicants have?

They're only accepting type rated applicants at the moment, so if you meet the requirements outlined in the advertisement, put in an application. I can guarantee, you won't be considered for an interview unless you put an application in.

Has anyone else received an email from recruitment asking for an application update due to being in the talent pool for a rather long time?? Does this mean anything, or is it just a general update?

I wouldn't imagine there would be too many type rated F/O's in the world willing to move to the middle east to do the same job they're currently doing, with less seniority and a longer wait for a command !!

Hopefully the guys in the pool will hear something soon

Recruiting type-rated FO's

When you look at their website, career site...
QR is hiring type-rated FO's on all their fleet.
Does anybody know what this mean for all the people in the pool who are not type-rated? Will they jump in front of the queue as it happened in the past with Spanair and Tunisair guys/girls? Or will they be placed in the pool and wait till their time comes up AFTER the current pool has been emptied?
Cheers to all us swimmers.

I think they will jump in front like Bahrain pilots.. That's happened few months ago... I don't know if they will need NTR FO anymore... There are a lot type pilots on the market..

Simply put, why would they be setting up a cadet program with apparently sooooooo many awesome people in the talent pool?

They realise that they cant keep pilots, especially when the worlds economy's start to produce confidence.
Cadets can be locked in for long periods, are naive enough/or desperate enough to pay big money to be trained without guarantee of a job. And this helps QR keep the perceived competition high, the perceived illusion of 5 star airline equals five star treatment of staff etc. wrong.

If you have been waiting for more than 18months then chances are your not being considered. The way i see it, is bet on the rest of your life, not on waiting for QR to give you some kind of freedom/career! Wasting your life waiting.

Good luck to ya
