QR finally pay rise !

After long time waiting those are the numbers:

Basic= 0
Hours =0
School fee allowance=0
Housing allowance=0
Proft share=0
Leave encashment=0

After a profitable year announce on news of 250+ millon $ and buying 33% of Cargolux , stimate another 153+ millon $, this is what we deserve.

In other hand :
Inflation = 26% per year
School rise fee 10% per year

And Management keap cheating everybody with promises , shame on you for this dirty job!
We are making less than a low cost carrier , so let keap them making more ad more money from our hard work .

And welcome new joiners , don't believe on people without self respect.

Lets hope new joiners looking at QR and EY now see the truth and head down the road to EK if they are so keen on the middle east, at least they give a bonus (12 weeks) and a payrise ( 8% and I believe approx 6-8 months back they got another 6% payrise) not sure on the last.

Anyone joining QR and EY under the current management don't say you were never warned.

Very sad , more than 210 views and only 3 replys, seems that pilots in Qr are very happy with their salarys and conditions.

auh_to_auh : seems we are little out of the loop or we work for different company.

Sorry Beyblade but you the wrong one:

I hear that FLT OPS MNG, were afraid to open their mouth, after the announcement of no pay rise, no profit share, nothing until IPO launch, may be in 2012 or 2013, and also I hear that actually the B777 TRES are fighting to move to B787, typical QR pilot attitude.

Just to add my own little piece of camel dung to the fire...Latest Email from our cost cutting management regarding how we are now REQUIRED BY THE COMPANY to have multiple exit visas for their convenience to use E-Gates but the "Burden" of payment is still ours...

Nice to pay the company money to make their own lives easier...Total Sh*t

dont want to be a spoil sport but what i have heard from some of fellow country man is that pay rise is coming next month backdated from april 2011...3% increment per year of service,housing maintain,education increased to 80k....but this was till 15 guys resigned last week from 320...(65 guys + 15 = 80 guys in 5 months )
now the pay rise is gone for nego again for the betterment and would surely be more than the 3 % per year...lets give another month as traditionally..any pay rise in qr has only came on jun/july....backdated always of course.......my best judgement would be its goin to be good..now before anyone bashes..its only my opinion...i am giving till end jun...otherwise many other 320 jobs around..guess what china is offering almost usd 15000 rite now....indigo usd 10000 even srilanka almost usd 10000...looks like good year for 320/330 pilots..

Sorry but 3% It's what we currently have, did your "friends"told you about the profit share, leave encashment?. Try againg.
You are not spoiling anything , you are free to believe what you want, and YES also low cost carriers are paying more than QR.

QR finally pay rise !

MULTIPLE EXIT PERMITS
In reference to mandatory multiple exit permits, the attached form is required to be filled out and submitted to your respective Fleet Coordinators, for obtaining the same. Those already in possession of a multiple exit permit are requested to ensure that the same is valid before going on leave. Pilots are requested to allow at least 3 days processing time, after which the collection and payment for the multiple exit permit can be done at Villa Number 21 behind QR Tower by staff.

Kindly note that the cost for multiple exit permitis to be borne by staff as per Management directive. This process will continue until otherwise notified.

Com'on ladies/gents don't complain..:
We already have in Q.R (the best airline in qatar!), a generous Bonus every year rewarding crew for their hard work.., a lovley pension plan is waiting for us the day we retire from Q.R , a impressive 3% annual increase on the basic only and for the first five years of seniority only in your respective grade! A lovely work environment....
No ladies/gents do you really think we still need an increase of top of all those benefits we already receive from QR.!!??

Blacksteel;
I may be wrong but i think you have to pay as well...To CANCEL your multy- exit permit once you resign!!
Wondering in how many places in the world you have to pay to be able to exit the country!??

spamcandriver..you are absolutely right..been hearing this since 2 yrs ago but 2 yrs ago the world had surplus pilots with many closedown but today different story altogether..open any recruitment agency and at least 20 jobs avail...320/330/340/777..( fleet qr has and everyone else wants this rated pilots)..2 yrs ago many application to qr but now hardly any thats worth it..only low time pilots application they are receiving...( this is from recruitment dept itself).
viewpoint...about bonus..well its entirely up to the company..the company is not obligated to render us any but any given its a goodwill..ofcourse i need the money but its not contractual...just for hope..2009/2010 qr made 205 mil profit and we got 1 week..2010/2011 qr made 250 mil profit..so my personal opinion we can expect more than 1 week..maybe 2-3 weeks...its nothing compared to ek...but free money..why not..as for leave encashment..if u have excess backlog more than 21 days..u can encash the excess only but your chief pilot/fleet manager must give the approval...write in to them and see what happens..otherwise write to cpf..or evpo....
loc22550...dont start bashing...qr is still growing..many new orders and many new planes flying this way..recruitment knows that all this need to be manned and current market is not supporting them in terms of manpower..something would be done soon...even ek is short..dec ek would start soon if they cant find enough fo's...ek's recruitment next week is at europe..milan,rome etc....as for ey..many resignation as well..many goin to air asia..even their 340 captains are leaving for air asia x..although the salary is smaller...
looks like the good time for pilots worldwide has just started and it will only get better ( if there is no war,volcanic or disease anywhere)...
happy flying fellow pilots in qr and hope for the best as hope is only we have....

How To Ask For A Pay Rise
newday knows the best way:
"There is no secret. I have a few friends(Captains) A320 and they are intelligent enough to understand the way QA operate. Late evening/early morning departures/arrival -everybody knows why.
They understand they will not stay forever on A320 due to huge numbers of 777,350 on order. They do not plan to leave!
Pilots who can not cope with that kind of schedule leave. And so what?
Somebody who has energy and positive thinking, willing to work hard and patience, will join. Good for QA! I only want to encourage this kind of pilots to come, they will be happy.

PS. As long as schedule is legal according CAA, I do not see reason for complain. I know some airlines use pilots much more and some operates contrary to CAA duty time regulations!"





Newday. Your problem is lack of intelligence

Blacksteel7:

You can't go and pay your mortgage or your son's school fees with your A330 or B 777 type?, Here all the pilot have the same salary despite the fleet they are.
Your A320 friends have been waiting 4+ year for a flet tranfer since we don't have senority.( DEC B777, and A330).

There is not NEWDAY on this post, and lack on intelligence , you must be kidding, from what planet are you coming ? jajaja.

PS. As long as schedule is legal according CAA

Who monitor who?, we all now , don't be silly.

For those 320 or 330 wiating to transfer to 777, you can forget this year, there will be only 3 coming this year and all the slots are for new joiner.
This is how QR treat seniority.
Seniority in QR = Shxt
