George,
I attended a walk-in interview and there we did a surprise 50 question tech quiz, most of it common sense stuff and nothing you can really study for. With your experience I wouldn't worry. I think the required passrate was 80%. After that it was a quick chat with two pilots, simple get-to-know-you stuff, all very friendly. A week later it was a simulator check ride in Doha. Take-off, engine failure, VOR approach to land. That's it. Also very friendly.
I guess you will apply for an F/O position. Judging by other posts, it might be a tough job, but at least it keeps you flying, and whatever rating they give you will be great for later.
Good luck!

Hi, can anyone tell me if Qatar is actively hiring right now and if so how do I apply?

I've been to the Qatar's Flight Deck Crew Recruitment website and read all the information. But when I click on the "Apply Now" button, I get redirected to the Flight Deck Crew Job Search website and there I can't find any job openings or how to apply..

Or if anyone who actually knows someone in their HR department and can provide me with the HR's e-mail, that would be great... thanks!

George:With 600h as PIC you might be accepted but as a F/O for sure and i guess on 320!
Life on 320 is not always a healthy journey here,with alternance of night&day time flight with minimum rest in between!very tiring sometime and leading to sleep disruption.
Because in our 5 stars roster departement here... they consider pilots(expecially on 320) as Robots with a ON/OFF "sleep switch" you activate as soon as you arrive home in order to be fresh for your next duty!
