Hi there, can anyone confirm if the interview process for Qatar Amiri OR Executive is the same as for the airline ? I haven't been able to find any info about the recruitment process for these.

Hello All,

I did my assessment for QR this past summer and was placed in the holding pool, a few days ago received an email offering a job position with Amiri Flight, can anyone shed some light on current conditions like pay and benefits, roster pattern and days off, anual leave, etc....
Do they usually do this? I don’t know what to think about this late turn of events.

any input is much appreciated.

DV.

Beware

Here we go again.....Amiri is hiring once again on all fleet types except B747-8. Only difference this time is they are trying to keep themselves secret. The two recruiters I know of contractair and Zenon are not disclosing where or who you will be working with or any T&C's. They only want you to submit a application package. Things have not changed that I know of; on call 24/7 other than your 42 vacation days.

They have been going through this cycle with pilots and operations management for years now. Get some unwitting pilot to join who after a short period of time figures out that being held captive in Qatar is not such a good deal. The work is not too bad, typical unscheduled on demand VVIP. Destination can be interesting at times with good Hotels; Or you can sit around for days or weeks with possible ASAP callout, telling you the driver will pick you up in 30 minutes.

Like many retention problems in the Middle East can be easily be fixed with a decedent rotational schedule.

Yesterday I got called by Zenon, asking me whether I would be interested in Amiri Flight. Didn't apply, just digged out my profile as suitable it seems.
They we're looking for a A330 Captain, when I told them I had only A330 time as FO, but fly A320 as a captain they said no worries, werew looking for 320 captains as well. Wouldn't outline the package on offer, instead asked me for my minimum salary, and what I was earning now.
A bit suspicious the way they recruit. Can remember they had nice job advertisements before, no reason to be that sneaky is it...

Hello everyone,,
There is no scope to commute because of the 24/7 standby, 311 days per year (365 less 42 days leave and 12 days off). No rosters, just wait for the sms, generally the day before a flight but occasionally a call to be at the airport in 1 hour. When told it's for one night, pack for a month as things are prone to change.

Destinations are varied, worldwide, including on the A320 fleet.

Morale is generally good, flight deck and cabin crew generally get on well.

It is (in my opinion) a good job. Doha itself has its moments, the traffic/drivers probably being the biggest headache for everyday life. Legal alcohol is available through the single liquor outlet, albeit a bit more expensive than you might expect. The supermarkets stock many western items. Carrefour is at a few of the malls. You can get Marks and Spencer chocolates at M&S! Most British and American Schools are of a good standard. Petrol is cheap at USD.25c per litre. Second hand cars can be very cheap because of the turnover of expatriates. Its hot, over 40 degress celsuis around 6 months of the year. It sits on 45 degrees most days in the area of the company compound. You get used to it. There is a Rugby Club nearby for some social interaction at a bar, while watching some live rugby (not a high standard but fun to watch).

I've got same call too.
I'm a little bit confused. I was quite unfullfilled with informations. No way to have salary details so I think I will quit.
Will you keep on with your application?

Regards.

Hi all,

been called a few times for the 330/340 but get very conflicting feedback on schools fees.
For me that is a deal breaker.
Kids in school in the UK.
So can anyone please confirm the rates and if you are allowed to use outside of Qatar.

Many thanks

“if” same as Qatar Airways, which is likely, then yes 105,000 riyal per year and it can be used for schools overseas. In that aspect they have one of better policies, although it ends at 21.

I believe thats total up to 3 children (with QR). Obviously if you have only 1 child it makes it an excellent part of the package! I stand to be corrected, however, as things may have changed.
