Get a suit or two you will need it during training. Buy something smart in a cool material. Read a little about fitting of a suit on fashion sites and then decide. Don't goto big famous brands such as Boss armani etc since they will sell you junk for the price of good quality clothing.

Definitely a suit for interview.....if you don't have a second one can try a different shirt/ tie.
As far as sim check probably different group of evaluators so they won't know or care....I wouldn't wear your uniform though as can't say I have ever seen that......normally see candidates wearing suit. Better to show up overdressed, if not required you take off tie and jacket.

I was just wondering is there any hope for the 737 Captains as DEC position for 787 who are in the holding pool?

Hi Guys,

Generally what fleet do you end up on if you are current on the A320. Do you always end up being allocated the A320 or do some get the A330 as well?

Cheers.

Unfortunately I heard that the chances are very small now. They are now giving preference mostly for 757/767 pilots to join the 777 or 787 fleet. When they apply, they receive an "Advanced Candidate" status.

Momo95 did the flight school you graduated from offer any type of job placement or at least networking opportunities with previous grads? I wouldn't say money down the drain but definitley keep your options open if Qatar doesn't work out. I don't think anyone can guarantee a job but many flight schools have partnerships that at least get your foot in the door with a Conditional Letter of Hire or guaranteed interview. If not get in contact with grads from your school that have a job with an airline.

Application status: Hold, talent pool

Hello everyone, I had qatar interview in july(2016) one week later I received an e-mail confirming I was approved, some days ago I received an other e-mail informing to me that I have been put in the hold pool. The other guys (had the interview on the same day) already received their doj, any of you in the same situation? How long are you waiting? I applied to Boeing, FO position. My type: B737. Total hours: 3300.

Day 1 you will get a Company presentation of QR and Doha, followed by a technical knowledge quiz, etc. This will take the whole morning and be followed by an interview with three company pilots which will last about 90 mins. If you are successful, you will be invited to do the simulator check the following day.

Day 2 Simulator. Quite straight forward and will require basic flying skills like pitch and power.

The whole process is very pleasant, friendly and courteous. Don't even think of not wearing a suit, regardless of OAT.

On your trip back home (in Business Class) you will realize that applying to Qatar Airways is the best decision you've made, career wise.

There is no more fleet specific application. Just Boeing or Airbus. I was told in my interview that they will be doing Direct Entry on to the A350 by the end of the year. I applied for F/O Airbus. Not sure if this will apply to Captains (spoke to a Captain friend that works there 4 days ago and he said the rumour is A350 DEC soon), the other 3 guys I interviewed with were Boeing.
