First thing, do not bring your wife and kids here until your training is done.
You will be putting your success in training at risk. Seriously, leave them
at home.

The names on all documents should match. She doesn't have to have your
last name, but the names need to match or else you run the risk of getting
screwed around.

Get the marriage certificate stamped by both your own government, and then
by the Qatar embassy in your own country before bringing it here.
Else you will have to do the same thing, but from Qatar, much more expensive
and time consuming.

Same here since first quarter of the year, DEC holding pool despite being told that a firm job offer would be made within six weeks to successful applicants, I'm sure like many others, I feel it was a bit of a waste of time coming for selection, I suspect with other good job offers materialising in the meantime that the likelihood of working for Qatar is rapidly fading.

Same thing happened to me in 2012....was in hold pool for 8 months.
Heard from friend that they have hired enough to fill slots for rest of year and trying to use less DECs and more internal upgrades.,, but with the orders they have they will need bodies

ATPL questions

Gents,
Does anybody can give a feedback on the ATP questions? Or maybe a good reference to a questionaire catalogue?
Thanks

Boeinglad,

Actually the year is counted from the date you had the interview not from when they told you that you passed...

End of February here, DEC Airbus.

From what I've heard there is almost no chance to get in within the end of the year..

To those of you who have already attended the selection in Doha, did you have a lot of recommendation letters?

And a change again perhaps in the DEC recruitment timescale? Rumour is that the Al Maha subsidiary is about to be shut down.

Good day all

How long is the process after submitting the application before we get notified? Been hearing a lot of folks are in the holding pool, is it true?

Thanks

It depends!

Are u a typed rated Fo? If the answer is yes things tend to move quite quickly.

In case you're applying as a capt, then things are moving slowly.

I can tell you I know a few guys who did their assessment in march and took something around 2 months to get the good news. Unfortunately all them went to the holding pool. No news so far...
