The new Airline assesnment, is tailored to the new generation, No Math, No Language test.
The only skill test is Super Mario (to be Nintendo qualified), straight to level 11, where you have to collecte 12 Golden mushrooms, and save 3 silver apples.

freddie16, similar fashion to the ones on lpj, although you will not see many questions from their examples. Also note that quite a few answers are wrong!

The cognitive test might dissapear indeed.

Anyone has an idea how long it would take after the offer to effectively move to Doha these days?

B787 screening

Hi there, any body with fresh news concerning the assessment ? Somebody told me that the process changed again... Someone has been there recently ? Only serious reply please...
And also, for what I know, the preparation package at latestpilotjobs is outdated and almost useless so please don't waste money there.

Anyone working for QR as an FO would want to share some more recent experiences working for them? Are things improving? How are the rosters these days on A320/B787? Anyone would mind to share to example rosters (or PM).
I am aware that unmarried you can't live together in Qatar, if you join and move over, how easy is it to arrange with the airline your spouse visa's etc if you decide to marry your significant other after joining ? Thanks !

I have just returned from Doha, having completed the assessment. 8 of us started and 8 of us finished.
Day 1:
1.0 Hand over supporting documentation. Ensure your logbook is signed and STAMPED. Doesn't matter by whom, just make sure it is stamped.
1.1 HR presentation, including all the latest pay scales
1.3 ATPL theory quiz. 50 Q's, 1 Hr. Some of the HPL questions require a bit of prior study, but the rest are relatively ok. Ace will not answer all the flight ops questions. Study METAR codes and ensure you understand all Perf A stuff. Question bank is 2000. PASS/FAIL notified within 2 minutes of the end of the exam.
1.4 No further academic or Technical assessments. Next stage is a standard competency based interview with 2 pilots. Use the S.T.A.R. method of answering and think of a handful of situations through which you can demonstrate the professional skill sets that a pilot should have.
If the Interview goes well you will be invited to fly a sim assessment the following evening. they give you a PASS/FAIL answer within a few minutes.
Day 2:
2.0 Sims are booked between 18:45 and 22:45. The profile is sent to you 5 days before you go out to Doha. It is usually flown on the 320. You can expect to have no automation and no bird. You will fly a couple of radar vectored approaches and have an emergency to TDODAR on the second.
That's it! HR will contact you after a couple of weeks to either invite you to start or reapply in 6 months.
The assessment is valid for 12 months so can be done ahead of having to resign your current position.

If you want a single source study tool then I would recommend investing in the Airline Preparation for Pilot Jobs iPAD App. It gave me everything I needed to attend the assessment with confidence.

Good Luck

Thanks for the info. I just checked latestpilotjobs.com and it says the same (it was updated yesterday).
Do you know if their databank regarding the atpl questions is updated?

Hey manchestermonarch,...

Thanks for sharing that information; it's much appreciated.
And by the by, what do you mean by 'HPL' questions?
(Human Performance?)

Hi All

HPL = Human Performance and Limitations

On line Psychometric/Personality tests are still used at the screening stage before the Invite to Interview. These tests are the Hogan series and consist of 3 tests each of 200 questions.

Situation Task Action Result

The STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) format is a job interview technique used by interviewers to gather all the relevant information about a specific capability that the job requires. This interview format is to have a higher degree of predictability of future on-the-job performance than the traditional interview. This technique is a behavioral interview technique.

Situation: The interviewer wants you to present a recent challenge and situation in which you found yourself.
Task: What did you have to achieve? The interviewer will be looking to see what you were trying to achieve from the situation.
Action: What did you do? The interviewer will be looking for information on what you did, why you did it and what the alternatives were.
Results: What was the outcome of your actions? What did you achieve through your actions and did you meet your objectives? What did you learn from this experience and have you used this learning since?.
