Qatar Airways interview process

Hi,

I received this from a friend, he said they have changed the interview process.

After the introduction the examination was, first 50 ATPL /EASA questions in 60 minutes, second was Math Test no time, third Psychometrics, then the last short term memory, and finally psychological test.

Good luck

I've just come back from Doha. There is no maths test.

The process is the psycometric test before you are invited out to Doha.

- Short introduction from HR on the contract
- 50 ATPL questions in one hour
- Interview with two pilots
- Simulator

Mostly questions about your aviation background and situations that you faced during your career and how you dealt with them.

Expect questions like:

- Why Qatar ?
- How are you going to deal with so many different cultures and habits ?
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years.
- (FO's) Tell me a situation when captain was going to make a wrong call and you had to change his mind. How did you do that ?
- Tell me a situation when you had to fly with someone who didn't want to follow company's procedures. What did you do ?

Etc etc...

Pretty straight forward, don't worry.

IF you would accept and advice, I recommend you making very clear that you always try to follow rules and procedures. I said that I would only deviate in case of an extreme emergency, where my life and the aircraft would be in risk.

One thing else, don't say bad things about your current/previous employer. It's not elegant and looks like they don't appreciate this kind of attitude.

Good luck !

Question for those who have been to the interview:


What references did you take with you?

Anything from your current employer?


Thanks
