Can anybody describe how is the general environment within qatar airways, and about the pay scale for captains ?
I still cant believe that people make posts like this here. If you are really interested in coming to an airline like Qatar then surely you can make a bit of an effort to investigate yourself? There are loads of pages before this one in this thread with information on Qatar.

I have been waiting for more than a year just to get a chance at going for an interview and have tried everything to get it right, but some people think all the information/jobs should just be handed to them on a platter...

Sorry for the late reply, I've been traveling. I was interviewed in February. Yes, DEC on 777. No "holding pool" or anything. It just took this long to tick all of the boxes. Had to make a special trip to DOH for the PAT test though. That was in March when they started that requirement for the interview.

Max age limit of FTSO

Hi all,

Just wanted to share this info with all the FTSO in the holding pool.
Apparently the max age limit for FTSO upon joining QR is 35.
I don't know what to think of this, as I passed the age of 35 when I did my assessment successfully as a FTSO.

Still no news.

Cheers,
cccc

The age limit is 40. Unless someone has changed it recently.

It has changed...

I have an extract from OM-A...

In chapter Qualification Requirements - Flight Crew - 5.2.4.2. it says:
below 35 years at the time of joining Qatar Airways

Too bad for me, because I was already 36 when I went to Doha last for the assessment. I have received all the updates so far. But I guess I will receive a mail which states that I am too old now.

I guess someone has changed recently.

Cheers,
cccc

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know at what stage the background checks occur (i.e. license verification and past employment)? Is it before employment or after? Before issuance of contract or later?

Thanks.

Best of luck...
