Have had 3 friends interview in the last four months....everyone has been in the A320 sim. It really depends on what is available at the time.

QR Interview

Hi,
Sim is all raw data flying....zero automation....ils and land...no fd take off....apu fire on final approach....declare mayday and land.
Day 1 is pat....just b ur self...frankly speaking I didn't really read the booklet they send me,I recommend you read it well. They need to know ur personality and decision making skills. The key is stay calm
Day 2 is ATPL questions. 50 and u need 80% to pass
Formal interview is straight forward
Regards

Day done

PATS Assessment completed.

It's a very relaxed day. Interview first. Behavioural. Really relaxed. Felt good.
Then the exercise. Hard work. Many screens to deal with. Try and relax.
I hardly answered all the questions.
2 modules completed and 1 is video recorded.
Then the last part. Watch your last module. And comment on how you felt. And why you did certain actions.
Hard to fly, hold speed, straight n level, answer many questions presented either side of you. And listen....
I personally not very confident in how I went. Always want to do better. Naturally.
Now it's a waiting game.

@ HAMD
I think it has been as quick as 1 week and as long as 2 years.
I would think an average of 6-10 weeks. ( most of the longer wait periods have been for second officer positions.....it is horrible to wait so long but still you hear of good news even after such time. On the bright side it is possibly better than another ME airline that kicks you out of pool after 1 year.
Good luck

@ Jerman
Just my opinion and observation, but their needs are constantly changing...by early 2014 they could be short on 320 again. There has been a rumor floating around that they would try to make the 320 the entry airplane for everyone.
I personally don't see this happening as it will probably require even more training cycles.
With that being said, I think anything is possible here, and I could see lots of movement on the 330 as the 350 and 380 start arriving
