Scott T : Believe it or leave it your call, what I did hear from them was ,they are looking for guys with wide body experience,or typerated on one of their fleets, check again in 3 months,

My thought on this is, they are full for the slots this year, plus they have enough applications coming in from people with wide body experience, the wait might be longer,

Would these be the Malaysian pilots recently screened by CTC for Emirates, and not a single one was passed?

@ sweetdeer

I interviewed in August... Have posted my experience above... 7 guys in our group, 1 got a rejection within a few days (no more than a week IIRC).

Nothing for the rest until about 2 weeks ago when my sim partner got noticed that he was selected but in the pool. Both he and the guy who was rejected were fast track candidates, the only such applications in the group. No one else including me have heard anything. They did ask me for 1-2 things along the way but no result.

When did you interview? And are you waiting in the pool or not like me, just waiting to hear back after the interview?

Pool

Hi friends..

I have been in the pool like many others.. But do we know a number of how many pilots are in pool?

I know someone who did assessment in May 1st week is joining in Dec 2015 on 777.. He was NTR FO..

Hi Ldggrup,

I guess this information is not public. And I think they might have sort of different pools depending on the actual need of the company. Cpt or Fo for example, or cpt A320 and cpt 777. rated and no rated.

Just my two cents

The wait is frustrating

I am rated on a QR type.. Have widebody experience of 3500 hrs (777/787).. Yet in the holding pool since June.. Had interviewed in May..

Heard rumours that "the airline that must not be named" is resuming recruitments in November.. QR must realise that it risks losing guys to it unless some progress is made SOON..

But from the look of it, with the new improvments QR seems to beat the unnamable carrier. I also heard that there's some kind of career block or "gentlemans' agreement" between the big gulf carriers.

I heard that this agreement is valid for the UAE airlines (FZ, EK and EY). QR is another country. So I believe you can change from QR to any other UAE airline in the future with no problem..

Applied 2 months ago, 2000TT and NG rated. Still "NEW" on my status...

Does anyone have any updated info on the pay?

On PPJN I read that the basic salary is 22500-30000 QAR for FOs. Is there a pay scale? What is a typical take home salary there?

Some friends on the 777 claim they take home well above 10 000 dollars a month.
