To be honest, I don't know. But, in my opinion, pilots who have started the process will continue. I believe they stopped the recruitment for new candidates, not the hiring of those already on the pool or in the process.

Anyone with a more accurate information feel free to correct me.

Historically seen, Qatar has always welcomed the ones to Doha that have an assessment. If there's a need, they've been put in a conversion course and if not, they would rot away in a holding pool (even after a positive assessment) for months or even years. An ex colleague waited 1 1/2 years until he was finally offered a starting date last year in January.

hey guys!
I applied to QR last month, for the rated FO.
i'm rated on Boeing 787 as well as on the A32S, any advice on what's the best route to take? (better chance on upgrades, roasters, flights...)
Boeing or Airbus?
cheers!

Not the best. Dubai would be better for that.

It must be FCL. 50 format upon joining airline. That's what I was told a year ago on assesment.

I'm petty sure all recruitment has been halted at the moment, don't see any pilot positions on QR website. The covid-19 plus the blockade taking its toal sadly.

Man,do yourself a favor and take a deep breathe,dont rush and let the HR guys ask you transfer your logbook to new format.You will be asked transferring your last 3 pages of current log and have them stamped by current employer.Thatís it!

^^^^^^
Just the last three pages have to be in that format. Not even bound in a book. So just print this out and use it for free:

Look at page 42: https://www.easa.europa.eu/sites/default/files/dfu/Easy_Access_Rules_for_Flight_Crew_Licensing_Part-FCL.pdf.

That is from EASA so it definitely complies!

This is going to be a tough year for all of us looking for jobs. Airlines shedding pilots, recruitment postponed and potentially airlines going broke.

Good luck to all trying to move jobs. May be best to be happy with the one that you have got: because it is just that - a job that you have got!
