What is going on with the recruiting right now? Web site only indicates recruitment for 777. Any input is appreciated. Cheers.

Senior guys ( here before there ever was such a thing as company accommodations) are NOT allowed company housing, although we have some of the fortunate senior and semi senior pilots that have moved into company housing, it does not happen without putting up a stiff battle, which is lost most of the time.

all housing is mainly for new joiners.

this is why.
attract the monkey with a banana, catch him, put him in a cage. take the banana away so you can use it to attract another monkey.

OK, so if I become the monkey, how is the company cage/accomodation?

Room for a maid?
3 or 4 bedrooms?
Close to schools?
Utilities included?
Pool in the compound?
Garage for my Ferrari?

Accommodation depends on your status: F/O or Cpt?
F/O: If single - 2 bedroom flats. If married - 3 bedroom flats + maid room/study room. The problem is that the company is out of 3 bedroom accommodation at Ain Khalid for more than 1 year now, so if you are an F/O, expect a 2 bedroom apartment (even if you have 10 kids ) and to join a 50+ names in a waiting list.
If you are a Capt - single or married, you will get a 4 bedroom villa.

loc22550 ,

Another question if you don't mind - how often would a pilot have two consecutive overnight flights (I don't mind doing one a week but I have never been keen on back to back overnight flights)?

I mean why can't you buy/rent your own accomodation if you wish to .

Unhappy

Ask when you arrive
The answer will be given by a head-shaking person and will be something like
“You just can’t and by the way you can not leave the country for the next 3 month”.
Surprise you just got your self in jail…
Only take this job if you are in deep shi…

I would have thought that the Company Accom would be a welcome thing, as the rents are so high in the private sector? Or am I missing something here?

The rental prices are high but there are 2 bedroom apartments available for a lot less than 10,000QR (F/O housing allowance). If you have children you probably want something bigger than a 2 bed apartment but with this new rule we dont have a choice. Rental prices have started to drop in Doha, i've seen some nice 3/4 bed villa's coming onto the market priced between 10-12,000QR.

With 4 kids, it's just not feasible for me to join this airline. Pity things are so bad.

I can't believe that they expect us to just suck it up and accept what is doled out to us. The T&C's given to us are a world away from the ground reality.

As someone said earlier, you have to be DESPERATE to take this job right now.

Thats why we have so many applicants these days,,, allot of desperation out there.

Its not true that youcannot leave the country in 3 months. As soon as you get the resident permit you can apply for for your multy exit visa and egate pass. What you do need to do is wait 3months for ID90s.What the company said in a memo about the housing was there not accepting applications to leave company accomodation until Jun2009.
