As much as Abu Dhabi and Dubai no doubt are more fun cities to live in, I'm not so sure that Emirates and the unmentionable one are better to work for anymore. QR has slowly and quietly nibbled its way to the top of the Gulf food chain in the past few years, I think. We had the pay rise last year, provident fund introduction this year as well as a decent and fair roster bidding system, a good annual leave system with 42 (guaranteed!) days per year, as well as a strong move towards a more relaxed training regime. Not perfect, we still do our fair share of nighties, but definitely a completely different company compared to a few years ago.

About the salary, there was a good link here a few weeks ago that was spot on.

They did. Now you'll be given a personality test, as well as a verbal reasoning and sequence test online as a pre asessment. I was caught totally unaware and I failed the test. I found the last two demanding, because you have a time constraint. I was relaxed, as I taught I would be given a personality test only. A friend of mine which got the test 15 dais before, only got that one. I don't know your opinion, but for me it always take some practice to do those. In my case it was for a DEC position.

Wonder if they will make everyone in the pool take new tests before or after joining.

Application on hold

I applied last week for TR First Officer Airbus and received an email today updating that they are looking for A330 and A340 pilots now. I'm A320 first officer and my application will remain on hold.

^^ Similarly I had a friend who applied recently, rated, current and flying 737NG got similar email... The email stated that they are only looking for those who are rated on either 777 or 787, otherwise the application will go to hold.

@ Pulkdahulk

Did they tell you during the interview that 500 are in pool or is it coming from someone you happen to know? Just wanted to confirm if this info was given officially during the interview.

And good question about how the pool will be sorted out... Could be a number of things... from date interviewed to total experience to higher scores on the interview. Would be nice to know that... I didn't know at the time of my interview that there was a pool. They didn't mention it either, I would have asked the question if I knew.

I have a friend who IIRC interviewed in May or April, still in pool.

Negative. Comes from a reliable source from within the company.

Thank you so much Bravo45 for all the help. Lots of studying for a month and it all ended well. 777 is an awesome airplane to fly and especially the sims. They have got some really fantastic instructors at Qatari and definitely some tough ones too but as long as we all put in hard work, it's a great place to work.

@ Pulkdahulk

My pleasure and glad it helped... I got a good feeling about the training as well... I think I am up to it... 777 would be a dream come true for me!! All the best for getting the official news. I had to wait until everyone in my group had gotten it and then I asked them if I missed something. They said they did send me the email which I never got. Anyway they are taking longer than usual in getting back to people.

About the new PSA, I am curious too but glad I am done with that stage. I have no idea what it entails... other what has been mentioned here...

Bravo45,

Going by what I have been reading and re-reading the last 250-417 pages, the Jan 2016 slot is booked for those who did the exam in Jan or Feb 2015 when they wrote in September (Foswillruletheworld).

We know for sure that the pool does contain all the second and first officers and captains so it's a mixture of all three. Now we also know that type rated candidates may go on the 777 like the 737, 757, 767 candidates and non type rated or second officers on the A320 (highly preferable by the SOs and the 787 - which I must say absolutely loved the cockpit when we checked out the sim for a few minutes. I would personally love anything.

To the candidate above (viewpoint) - I am a receipient of the new psychometric exam - logical and verbal reasoning so those who will get the email before appearing for the exam will have their answers of how to study before the actual link is sent for the online timed exam. (Fyi - I had no clue how to do it, but if you Google it you will surely find something). Practice it for a couple of days for a few hours and you will walk away scoring well. If you still cannot find it, inbox me and will guide you.
