I believe all recruitment is on hold until the transition is sorted out. Others may have different information but I believe that to be correct.

I thought recruitment was on hold, do u know if these guys joined recently and left thereafter or were they guys in the company that left after the new mgmt changeover.

Confirming what Oceanic815 wrote recently, I believe that recruiting is still on hold while the management transition is in place.

It is true that there have been some departures from the Amiri Flight over the course of the last six months. These have been amongst what I would term "recent joiners". Reasons have been varied but the 24/7 on-call lifestyle and lifestyle in Doha have been issues for some.

As far as I know, the departures are not attributable to the management changeover at all.

Hi 3030N, what do u mean by saying when a new guy gets to Doha,something is wrong ?
Change of terms than promised ?or training delays or issues? Or housing or admin related ?
Amiri01 how's things now with the transition to new mgmt? When do u reckon they will open doors again ?

Hi 3030,

There has always been a certain lack of guidance/support for new joiners and I would agree that this area could be improved. I know a lot of guys turn up to do their observation sectors without ever having been shown over the airport office, Amiri Terminal etc.. The induction process could certainly be more comprehensive, structured and perhaps be more personal.

If there are any other issues that really should be addressed, could you pm me and I will communicate the suggestions to management. Hopefully your feedback can help to improve the process for subsequent new joiners, if anyone will act on the suggestions that is!

Pilot Talk, wrt the management transition, I have seen no discernible change in management. All executive and middle level management are still in place. There might be a new boss at the top, but there have been no obvious changes in the Flight Ops department that I have seen. However, others who are more closely associated with office work may have noticed changes.

That's not to say that there havent been any changes, it's just that I haven't observed them...

It would be good to hear the perspective of guys that have been here only a short time. It could be that having been here so long, I might have a bit of ambivalence about things that might grate someone who hasn't been here long.

As for when the doors will open again, it's anyone's guess. With the intro of the B748s pending, something will have to happen soon to meet the crewing obligations for the new aircraft.

Thanks Amiri for sharing info,it seems that the transition to Qr mgmt is taking longer than anticipated. There may be some insider opposition to the same which is normal,thus preventing the complete changeover.
With the summer months approaching and historically the utilisation of the fleet generally heads north,so going by that they should complete the mgmt transition process and start recruiting again to complete the "all captain fleet " if they have not and lower night outs/reduce hours/increase choice of annual leave etc for the guys already in the system. They started this process early last year in 2012 and it still seems they are looking for suitable candidates,as it appears in the various recruitment websites.

Just my two cents but if you are unhappy about something you should speak up. I've always operated under the belief that you have no right to complain if you don't make your voice heard.

Personally I'm quite happy here and for me it's the best job I've ever had in three countries. Having said that what works for me doesn't necessarily work for the next person. Everyone has to try to find a company that is best suited for them. Just because someone dislikes a company or leaves doesn't make it a bad company or a bad fit for you.

Cheers...

You're right, 3030, you never used the word "unhappy". My apologies. I was addressing your statement with a broad stroke that "something was wrong."

As far as me being "totally wrong" my wife tells me that at least once a day so no worries there...

Stagnate or deterioration of T&C's, change of guard and 24/7 on call roosters, make this outfit most undesirable.
