Luckily I was not very stupid to change anything for QR, but with the economy getting better in Europe and America they'll have shortage of pilots and they'll regret doing all this crap.

But the funniest part is:
You may *visit the*Qatar Airways Career Website*to review the Flight Deck vacancies and can apply for any vacancy that you *become qualified for.* Please use the same email address you used for your previous application.*We continue to grow and will have a requirement for *type rated narrow/wide body Captains and First Officers throughout the year.

how can you say that after telling that we are not qualified???

That is a blow , especially after waiting so long. I believe they are and will continue to be hiring steadily. As far as I recall Emirates has a max 1 year in the pool before having to interview again? Although they have in the past hired people that had been swimming for multiple years I do think they have changed their requirements so many times even they were confused and was easier to start over?
Maybe you don't even want to after this experience but apply again...second time may go smoothly!

Why blame ctc and the cadets ?

The long hold pool wait has been the situation with QR for a while and it goes way back before the ctc qr wings scheme was set up. Sounds to me like you're looking for a scapegoat and the qr wings cadets are the easiest targets.

Well why would any company train cadets when there is absolutely no shortage of already qualified candidates ready to start straight off. I personally feel cadets bring a different dynamic and tend to be more loyal to a company. BA, Aer Lingus, Virgin, Lufthansa and many other airlines are training their own cadets even though they have many people banging the Direct Entry door down.

How long does it generally take to get an assessment result? If unsuccessful, No answer or will the regret email be sent?

Heard that the COO has left the building.
Can anyone confirm ?

Hope it is false, we still need a hard "helmet" to fix this stupid place.

Good Day

Can any QR pilots shed some light on why QR rejected all the 2012 SO guys from the talent pool and what is likely to be the fate of 2014 applicants

Thanks in advance

They have rejected FTSOs. The NTSOs are still in the pool.
Reason for rejection ... Can't say!

And as for 2014 ntso applicants - they won't be called soon. Reason - there are ntsos still waiting in the pool to join. Some of them have joined, some still waiting.

Hi

Hi FL 123
What do you mean by FTSOs and NTSOs?

Do you think that 2014 SO applicants (already on the taleent pool)will be called to join before june ?

As a turboprop captain with 1500PIC on glass. I'm now eligible to apply for the "non type rated FO position" that was recently advertised. Does anyone know which fleet, given I have no jet time I would be placed on if successful? Thanks

@Pilote122

Ftso - fast track second officer
ntso - normal track second officer

Code:

I assume, you mean the individuals who were called for assessments in 2014, selected and now placed in talent pool --- Well they are calling people to join in a slow rate. I can't say exactly before june ( actually no one can say that) but first it will be for those who are waiting from a long time and then the new ones.

@ boeing777er

just go through few pages back and you will know that QR has appointed HIRE RIGHT. Anyways, just go on an answer them. They are from QR to do your background checks. Dont worry!!!
Also, congrats as I guess you are the among the few FTSOs who have received their offer.

@pilot4eva

ME IR doesn't need to be valid at the time of your assessment but your medical should be.
Interview - To be honest, it could be anytime. This is QR. Anything can change anytime. But as of now it won't be anytime soon.
