Talent Pool and DOJ

My assessment was last 19th and 20th of Jan for the 777. Currently flying 767. Total hours 10.000 but only 700 on a heavy. Received my OK on the 23rd of Jan (3 days after my Sim session), but placed right away in the talent pool. Today 15th of March received my DOJ for this August B777. God speed to all of you.

That would be THIS August, not next August.
Learn to be unambiguous, if you want any hope
of surviving this airline.

Which rosters do you guys prefer? The cargo or passenger flight rosters? How often is a cargo roster assigned?

There are some people with no family in Qatar so many enjoy a 10 day trip to N/S America vs staying here. Others hate it.
In general I would say an average month is 4-5 pax flights and 1 cargo trip...often a short trip like Frankfurt or Hong Kong and back following day.
They usually send you on a longer 5-11 day trip every 3rd month.....although as the cargo division grows it is becoming more frequent.

Thanks for sharing. Guess this is the 777 roster. Any clue about the 787's?

I am sure the A330 guys have a similar roster as well since QR has A330F.

Hi everyone.

How are the rosters on the 777 at the moment, and is the trend positive or negative?

Also, is it possible to live elsewhere in the gulf? I heard that to receive the accommodation allowance you need to apply and wait.

Thank you.

Choose my aircraft type upon entry?

Guys, I'm airbus type rated and recently passed the assessment& waiting for approval of employment.
Can I request for which type specifically to join?

Hope to shed some light into this.

Airbus type rated ?

You can request all you wish, but in the end, you'll be offered whatever they have a requirement for.

Also be aware, in the contract, it states they reserve the right to change your fleet allocation at anytime.
