You can try this website, Future Aptitude Screening Tool
The on line test is pretty similar to the one taken in DOH.

This link is not very accurated.

As a captain you are entitled to purchase an ID90 first class.

Hi there!

I have just been accepted into QR for DEC and my biggest concern is the housing because I see that the prices are very high and if you do not get the housing allowance we will have a poor quality of life.

In my case I am married and I have 3 children (only one goes to school) so I think we need a minimum of one apartment or villa with 3 bedrooms

With current rental rates DOH What can I get with 12000? and 15000? appreciate any information you give me specific compound to search online information

In the case of rejecting the job offer, what is the policy of QR? if within 12 months would accept the proposed work would have to go back through the process of selection?

Please feel free to give me an advice, recommendation on DOH, QR, housing, Scools, etc.. very grateful for your time

Best Regards,

I recently rejected an offer from Qatar as I got a job working for a carrier in Dubai, waiting for the offer from Qatar. The email I got back was surprising. It said thank you for you honesty and if you are ever interested in working for Qatar in the future just email us. So not exactly sure if they chuck you out the holding pool if you reject the offer!

Very confused

Hi to all.

Iíve been through their selection process in Doha about 2 weeks ago.
Next day, before I even arrive home I received an email stating that i successfully passed the selection process.

About a week later, I received another email saying that after careful consideration they regret to inform me that they have been unable to obtain approval for my hiring process.

I emailed back asking for clarifications but the only said that they cannot discuss the reasons for their decision.

Anyone had this before? What do they mean by approval? By who?

My application was for DEC A320 and I meet all there requirements as I have 6000+ PIC on A320 and 12000+ total airline time with a UK licence and EU passport.

Any info would be appreciated.

Well thats bad. I can understand how you are feeling. There were quite some guys who were waiting since early / mid 2012 in the pool after receiving confirmation mail. And 3-4 months back received the same mail as yours that they are no longer required. Indeed very sad. But im sure something better will come for you. U can apply after some time. Tc

" you have nothing to worry about"

Well...be careful..just make sure you don't any mortgage in local bank here.
Indeed they won't let you out (not Qatar airways but the local authority)in case you resign or got terminated and have some big debt left behind...interesting scenario...: no Job, no revenue and stuck in Doha with debt..it happens before.So just make sure you pay all your "bills""and fines..and think twice before applying for a mortgage from any local bank.
I don't think qatar airways can prevent you from leaving the company,although I knew a few case where the company refused the resignation of the pilot in first instance..but I don't think its in their interest to keep a pilot who doesn't want to work for the company.

And honestly and after so many years I still haven't got the meaning of this exit (or multi exit) permit. At the end of the day they can always block you at the airport,if they have to,even if you have an exit permit or multi exit permit.

Depends on operational requirement at DOJ, but expect A320.
