Greetings. I applied for the Type Rated Boeing First Officer position and also for the Type Rated Boeing First Officer position for the Miami Open House in February 2020. I applied for both thinking they will be same position since I am from the USA and I qualify for the Type Rated Boeing FO position. Now, I received two invites for two online assessements. So do I take one assessment which will be counted for both, or I have to take both online assessements ( PSYCHOMETER Online Testing) for each position. Once again I received two different emails to take these assessements. Please advise. Thank you.

I believe all in, FO's make around $12,500 per month starting. Senior FO's $15,000 per month after several years . Captains around $17,300 all in and up from there. This includes basic salary, housing, flight pay, per diem, transportation allowance, telephone, utilities and the 3 weeks of basic salary per year towards the end of service benefits.

Dr Orton is God in Qatar

Friend, if you get your Medical from Dr Orton, you are done!! You also can include it on your application, and will be well received.
When something goes bad on medicals in Qatar, Dr Orton is the last resource for desperate people, and his opinion is very well accepted in QCAA

Some Boeing DECs got DOJ recently Alfredol (in no particular order of interview date), mainly to the B777. Latest intel suggests B787 DEC training to start picking up again soon and DEC to co-exist with internal upgrades for at least the forseeable future.

I just passed the online assessment that was sent as part of the initial process. I have been sent a video link for a video interview. Can someone share the type of questions for the video interview. Secondly, what is the best gouge out there for the 50 ATPL question that will be given in Doha. I know latest pilot jobs.com is out there but I have been reviewing previous forum posts, where some have shared that its not a accurate or updated gouge for the written test for easa atpl. Appreciate any feedback on here or pm .

Hello everyone,
Regarding the ATPL questions. I took the ATPL test, group exercise, panel discussion and interview at a road show in europe recently.
I found that using the Qatar Airways ATPL question bank on LatestPilotJobs, and really studying it made this test fairly easy. pretty sure i scored near 100%

During the group exercise, i really just tried to work with the others without being too overbearing. I can be really determined and want to take charge so this was very hard for me
The panel discussion throws up topics for you to answer. You are meant to give your best answer, then discuss with group, then finally tell them if you want to change your answer based on new information.

Finally the interview topics are covered pretty well on LatestPilotJobs.
Take this seriously, use a few days to study and formulate honest answers to the "HR-style" questions like strengths/weaknesses etc. and you will do fine
Best of luck!

I paid for interview coaching from pinstripe solutions. Spent an hour on Skype with a specialist. The questions were not exactly the same, but the answers I prepared for the Pinstripe questions were relevant in the interview. They also helped me present myself well and avoid common mistakes that I have made at other interviews. https://www.pinstripesolutions.com/
(I passed the interview process in November, and was offered a class date in April.)
