Casablanca,
That's what I was thinkin so maybe it's not necessary after all to get the PC renewed as the License and IR are both valid at least 6mos before joining, since the last PC revalidates IR for 12 mos.

Cuillin,
Thanks for the JAR FCL requisites as I think QCAR is generally based on JAR, well maybe I will have to clarify with HR, if they would accept my license validity as it is before joining.

Great posts gents, really helpful

No problem. But you've gotta LOVE your pooch to keep him or her happy.
On a lead around a compound, find a bit of wasteland, or trek to a beach for exercise.

Having a pet seems to be quite easy but it will limit your accommodation choices as not all places accept pets. Holiday Villa didn't allow but AKG does.

PayJay,

This is a standard email saying that due to some "unforeseen circumstances" you are in the holding pool instead to be hired directly after passing the selection process. But Qatar Airways is calling DEC from the holding pool at the moment.

Good luck

Ps waiting time vary between 8 to 11 months

Hi guys,

I applied two months ago today! still waiting patiently and do not mind doing so. I was wondering if people could share their experience of how long they have waited for before getting a call.

Good Morning,
Can someone please tell me what is the waiting time AFTER the security screening has taken place that one will receive a start date?
Thank you.

DarthSidious,

I have no idea about it, but I thought they were giving a start date DURING the security screening, because it just take a lot of time to do it. And how do you know when it is finished?

Question Talent pool

Anybody know when people will be taken from talent pool for rated airbus FOs?

How long have bus rated FOs had to wait previously?

DOJ and docs

Hi,

Did anyone get DOJ in December for either 777/787?
Any info about the documents required before going to DOH would be much appreciated.

PS:It looks like QR is a better deal compared to EK right now...

Who knows which is better.

I would say it is horses for courses. You need to speak in person to genuine pilots from both communities to try and figure it out. Any time anyone writes anything remotely positive about EK they are shot down in flames, that doesn't necessarily mean it's not for you. Likewise some people last only 3 months here whilst others I know are very happy.

Try and speak to someone in a similar situation. Same nationality same aged kids etc to try and find a balanced view from all companies you are interested in.

Just to say, 16 days off next month, no leave, 70 hrs logged and 2 days in the sim. Young family and quite happy at the moment. Will it always be like this.....don't count on it, but life has been quite pleasant the last 6 months or so.

Regards

Qr

Hi i've done the assesment for the position of non rated fo( at the beginning was for fast tack cpt), one month ago.
Didn't get any answer yet about the outcome of my interview.
I've seen on the qr website that they've removed all the position for non rated
Pilots.
Now what happen?

Mate I think u should not worry about it as u have already given the assessment.. Its just that people who hvnt given assessment might have to wait till they clear the holding pool.

Grrr

Today I got an email stating The vacancy you applied for is currently placed on hold
Thats not fair .... I filed my application about 2.5 months ago for non-rated FO ... and now when I looked at the jobs portal, the non-rated position is removed .... however my application status on my portal is still new ...
What doest it mean ?? does it mean it's canceled ? or it mean I have to wait much longer and swim in the pool ???!!!

Mili86 that position no longer exist, try to whit draw your application and see what happens. I don't have an answer why the status continues with "NEW".
Nowadays Qatar only accept Type Rated FO and CAP, no chance to NTR.
