Dec 15th interview

Anyone on here going on the 15th? Does anyone know if the exams are the same for everyone, or are they different for rated vs. non-rated pilots?
Thank you.

Hi guys,

Just had a call from Qatar for an interview in London.
They said the interviews will be held in the first and second weeks of January 2010. Has anybody had a similar call or offer?

To add to that the lady on the phone said she would send me an email so I could confirm the dates.
I thought all interviews were in Doha?

Any info from you guys is much appreciated as always,

Regards

WB

Hi Kempilot & Pilotlear, if I could interrupt your prep, are you applying as F/O's or DEC's? and how long did you wait between application and date for selection? Good luck, and if you get chance let us know what horrors you faced.

Can anyone ping me across a couple of typical 777/330 and 320 rosters.With regards to housing, If you are a F/O married with two kids what kind of accomodation would you expect?
Cheers

Wingbar,

Apparently QR is in talks with a major UK charter which might make around 100 pilots redundant soon, not sure what's on offer but these interviews will be held in the uk so perhaps your call has something to do with this?

quick note

I just contacted Qatar recruitment team and they stated that they will hit the road visiting major international cities for interview recuiting during the first quarter of 2010. (They did not confirm which cities)

Hi Highwingflyer,

There may be a correlation between that and the interview yes.
I have absolutely no information though as to what's happening at QR.

..just for the "hac" of it, almost nobody has a CLUE on what these guys out of HR really want out of the assessment, expecially the ones who beleive they had all the questions masterized and ready to go!!! They know about this forum and they monitor it very very carefully....only 3 out of 8 of us passed the dec 2th assessment, meaning all the way to the sim check...I would raccomand to stop the bull all questions beside the "Homoglobine one" where hard, much harder than expected!!!!!!! 4 guys out og 8 where stopped right there

Best all luck to everyone

I have many questions

1, Can anyone tell me the law on co-habiting with my partner in the Qatar Airways accommodation. I am married but separated as is my new partner and wondered how that would go done with Qatar Airways?

2, My partner would be unable to move out there with me. How would Qatar view me wanting to pop back to UK if I managed to get a few days off to make it work while popping back to see her and my daughter? I know that it's a Doha based job, but if I got a few days off a month I would try and pop back and see my Daughter and girlfriend.

Pilotlear,

If only one known question came up, would you be so kind to share all or at least a part of the new ones???

Surely I won't be the only one here to appreciate receiving this shared info!

Many thanks

Officially speaking, you would need to be married to your partner in order to live with her in QR property.

A lot of pilots at QR commute home to see their families. This could be difficult if you are on the A320 fleet, but rostering on the A330 and B777 makes this more practical.

Most likely! Mention an interview question on here...and least that'll be one less we'll all have to study for!

Dear Pilots,

I really appreciate if anyone can advise me with 500hrs of b737-200 and TT of 2100hrs (FAA-ATPL) how can I get into Qatar airways. Are they recruiting now? if yes or not then how can I get in? I really appreciate it

Remember, those are mins, but actuall competive mins are still much more. They wont be back at taking anybody with a pulse mode till Ethihad, Emirates,Air Arabia and companys back in Europe start full swing hiring again. But who knows when and if that will happen.
