Anyone know the current situation regarding recruitment ? Website allows you to click on flight crew jobs (and states requirements) but no jobs show up to apply for.

Yes we are hiring, but unless type rated on 777 or A330 expect to join on the 320/300

Hi Fubaliera,

I am type rated and experienced on A320/330/340 from a next door airline, made the "mistake" (pre-recession) to go to Europe a year ago only to realise that I had left job security behind in the ME.

I applied about a month and a half ago, no news yet. Is there a way to follow up an application with an e-mail to someone?

Fubaliera, I am not rated in B777 or A330. Currently rated in B744 as FO.
But I just offered to join in B777 fleet.

Is this just a trick to make people come then they suddenly change it to A320/300 when signing contract or they really need crew in B777 ?

No shortcuts at the moment

Unless rated on A330 or B777 you can join the A320/300 fleet. There are plenty of pilots waiting for fleet transfer. Join th queue as everyone else did.

Mounster,
If they offered you a 777 seat. with your experience, you will probably get it.

There have been cases, albeit rare, when an individual was made to switch fleets after joining.

i'm assuming from your location you are with SQ or Cargo. PM me and let's chat.

Good Luck

QR

It is so funny to see Qatar Airways and what they do . Actually its good TRTO . QR is doing training for NON rated pilots and they they run to other airlines . There goes saving policy.
Etihad ,Vietnam,Korean,Air Arabia,Air Asia,Wizz Air still looking for type rated experienced crew just knock and say " i am from NOT ALOWED " airline can i apply ?

QR have highest rate of resignations or ( take 3 days off or annual leave and never come back procedure) in region and the salary is medium compare to other airlines what do you think what is the reason ?

The reason is because pilots are "cheap drivers" .

The screening is not at all like it used to be, many new changes and more stringent criteria is now in place.
the degree of difficulty has now been raised. seems we are not going to accept just anyone off the street these days. The goal posts have been moved.

good luck ! and may the best man/woman win? (some might want to argue that phrase
)

Instead of discouraging everybody why dont you find out the ins and outs of the interview for the guys who are jobless. Im sure your one of the guys who got in when they would let anybody in as you put it. with that kind of arrougance I know what nationality you are

since when is telling the straight facts to be understood as deliberately trying to discourage those out of work ?
I wont paint flowers and pretty pictures for anyone, the least I can do it let anyone know not to come thinking it will be a walk in the park, do some basic reading and be prepared.
if you want to misconstrue that as discouraging, then so be it. I'm sure others understand.

ItsAjob:

save a little ( "little" being the operative word ) is not a problem. it's not a cheap country to reside.

CA KRUNCH,i been reading all the post about qatar and u always have nothing good to say,i don't understand if u still work there or u left already,but anyway,i think there is no airline out there that is perfect,and everybody have a different opinion or situation in life,for some people qatar sucks,for others is a good place,i have personally a couple friends that fly for qatar and they are happy.
thanks anyway.
