I would suggest you as an individual can go to as many roadshows/ interviews as you like. If you are worried about EK finding out you went to a Qatar intrerview, I would politely suggest you think about that.

How should they find out? Do you think there is an international Roadshow Attendance Register? I think most of the airlines know nowdays that their candidates visit more screenings...

very good for First Officers, good for Captís as well depending on who you speak too (you canít please everyone... some prefer good destinations, some days Off, some donít like Freighter, some want low hours, some high etc).

For FO (my job)... for many months now, roster has been between 45-65 for a full months flying (i.e no Leave), for a month with Leave, expect lower. Days Off have been good which is what interests me - can always get a block of 6... some very occasionally getting 2 blocks, with a total of between 9-14 days Off in the month. Some actually are complaining as they want higher flying time for more money. Itís not the best fleet for destinations but weíve got some decent ones at the moment e.g Bangkok, Kiev, Warsaw, Venice, Penang, KL (the less desirable ones being to China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh - all subjective of course). We do Freighter... which can be hit and miss (Deadheading, delays etc) and provides more destinations. Most trips are generally layover - iím doing about 1 turnaround per month.

Can anyone in the Know shed some light on how the recruitment is going at QR?
How many screenings do they hold each month? Are they busy at the moment working on a backlog of hold pool pilots?
Are they a bit snowed under with applicants at the moment, or are they concentrating on a particular fleet?

Any information would be helpful.

Many thanks,

FBW

I copied the following from the pilot earnings thread in the T&Cs section of the forum;

For clarity, please post like this :
1) QR
2) RHS
3) 777
4) 3
5) Worked 230 days (of which 15 days off downroute), leave 42 days, off 94 days
6) All flights are with an overnight apart from line check
7) Block 1100 + 260 hours deadhead
8) NET approx 100.000,- for basic and flight pay
9) per diem depends on destination roughly 550,- to 750 euro a month, 3500,- housing + utilities
10) NET income 145.000,- euro per year

777 sounds a bit brutal to me!

fot education they pay phill age of 21 up to 4 kids
for retirement the only payout you get is end of service or ISP if you elect to join the plan

education in QR: do they pay for overseas schools/university or only in Doha?

777 Capt: possible to achieve 4/5 + 3/4 consecutive days off per month to commute to Europe without company limitations (24hrs before departure at base, ULR, etc ...)?

Thank you

Thank you
education allowance can be availed worldwide for School and universities up to 21
regarding the days off well it can be achieved but not 100% every month it depends on how u Bid.
you can bid for up to 6 days off in a row , sometimes also you can plan to divide the 42 days annual leave on block of 6 days every other month .
Commuting is not easy but it can be done .
regarding company policy for rest you need to respect the 12 hr minimum rest ( they donít monitor it 100% )before duty and before any URL duty you need to be acclimatized to doh.
hope this answer your questions.

They do now.
Some people got into big trouble (including disciplinary action) for breaking this rule.

If you donít abide by the 12hr rule you may get away with it. However, if you donít and then file a fatigue report following your subsequent Chennai night turnaround, then youíre exposing yourself. The QR system is not out to get you, but it does operate strictly by the book. And not just for pilots but for all employees. For example, the company does not care if you perform a go-around, which is SOP. They will care, and ask you to explain, if they find that somewhere up along the approach path you did not follow SOP, which then led to the go-around. It couldnít be simpler, just do what the book says.
