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?.

Any news on who gets offered the 350?
Sure the meeting stated 320 would be offered it too, but does anyone personally know of anybody?
For now, I have know of some senior 340 FOs/Captains, along with 320/330 TRE's who will be going to Toulouse(some already there).

Any news?

I think the workload is evenly balanced across the fleets at the moment. That is to say that everybody works a lot. Short haul doing lots of short, and long haul doing lots of long. Some might argue that 787 is the best but still in its infancy.

To get married after joining would be no problem; provided you could find the time! Just provide the company with a certificate.

About 2-4 weeks. Most administrative things here take their time.

My friend attended 1 week ago... No cognitive test ! Just ATPL questions, interview and next day sim on A320.
Unfortunately qatar has a very confused idea on pilot screening...
Since they are the last choice for pilots when choosing where to work comparing to EK (number 1) Ethiad (number 2) or even FZ they should be grateful with captains/pilot showing up for the screening, instead lately they failed some very good captains, some of them even rated on the 777 for no apparent reason since they performed very well in all phases including the sim.
The only ones that passed that day were those applying for the new jeddah company AlMaha (I think).
Profile at the sim is very easy, even if you are not type rated on Airbus, all they want to see is a professional standard, basic raw data flying and how you deal with an emergency (not rushing to land but using DODAR NITS and good CRM).
Unbelievable, qatar that is short of captains loosing the chance to finally hire some professional pilots... Also somebody was complaining about some retired captains running the sim with no precise knowledge about the A320 and not very cooperating...
Soon ethiad will probably be opening for DEC and nobody will consider qatar anymore and they will be even more short of pilots, only then they will finally realize that this is not the way to run a major airline including the pilot selections. No feedback, nothing
You must also consider that in the past, a huge number of pilots passed the screening selection very easily !! Most of them probably failed somewhere else in the gulf. It all depends on their needs in that precise moments.

The experiences of someone who failed the selection is probably not the strongest foundation for drawing the conclusion that QR have missed the opportunity to "finally hire some professional pilots". The pilot corps here is as professional as anywhere I've seen. In fact the two best instructors I've ever had were here in QR on the A320. But of course there are the odd exceptions, as in every airline.

Join us and draw your own conclusions, but take others views with a pinch of salt, especially if there is an element of bitterness at a missed opportunity.

Good luck to your friend.
