Then the JAA ATP test 50 questions 1 hr (really scared being an FAA guy)

Then the panel interview and then sim.

Failure at any step and you go home...

Am studying for the ATP stuff, would appreciate any source someone can provide.

MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION:

The interview questions... I understand all the "Tell me about a time..." questions... But do they also usually ask about your current type, like systems questions and mental calculations stuff or ATP test type questions or is it all HR stuff??

I have had barely any time to prepare... But I am unwilling to ask for another delay in the date... Will just do my best with what time I have.

Any other info would be much appreciate, including any pointers to certain pages of this thread with important info. I am trying to go through as much as I can but this is a looong thread.

Thanks!!!
It's simple ATP stuff, read ACE technical pilot Interview book or Everything Explained book.
The test is not that hard.

NTR FO

Guys,
does anybody happen to know if the company is planning to make changes to the min. entry requirements for NTR FOs? Do ex. Military fighter jet pilots stand a chance to get hired? It seems that they closed the entrance door in April. I would really appreciate your responses,
Thank you

Desk job with Qatar Airways

Hi all,

I've been invited over to Qatar for an interview for an office based role. Does anyone have any insight in to the office environment, team culture, office politics for desk based jobs? I'll also need to undertake some duty travel in the role, will this be in economy or in business? This thread has given be a few insights in to some of the issues that those who fly might face, but fewer for those who are looking at office based positions.

Thanks,

@ BRAVO5

No tech question during my assessment
1st day : company presentation + 1hr ATPL questions ( not too difficult)
If you pass ATPL then you proceed with the interview with 2 captains most questions about your previous experience (any divert during flight or problem with CPT or / FO, what do you think about SOP?, do you always follow your SOP?why do u want to work for QTR....) just be relax
If you pass the interview they will call u after a few minutes to give u an invitation for the SIM next day
SIM depends on if TR or NTR in all cases the instructor will give a good brief before session about their SOP limitation like N-1 acceleration altitude (EOA) , stabilization limitations for approach and Go Around .....
