Qatar talent pool FO

Hello everyone, I had qatar interview in july(2016) one week later I received an e-mail confirming I was approved, some days ago I received an other e-mail informing to me that I have been put in the hold pool. The other guys (had the interview on the same day) already received their doj, any of you in the same situation? How long are you waiting? I applied to Boeing, FO position. My type: B737. Total hours: 3300.

Just a guess , but maybe they received a bunch of Type rated pilots or a lot more experience and they are trying to capitalize on that. EK has been doing that for years. I would not worry they will call .

Posting on this topic instead of the other one, since this is an specific matter.

I've been through assessment on late September. Received an approval e-mail one week later putting me on talent pool.

I'm FO, 737NG TR and have heard about Airbus and 777 TR guys receiving job offer to join on December and January. Apparently queue is a bit slower for NTR and 737 guys.

Did anyone on talent pool have received good news lately?

Apparently most of the talent pool is for the 737 TR people, as Qatar have not apparently received any Max orders yet , and some of the 737 people who have given start date are jumping to the 777

I thought that the 737Max will be not for Qatar. That they ordered them for other airlines like meridiana? That's what I was reading online.
Yes apparently it depends on the experience you have..

Yes, they will be used for QR's foreign investment in Meridiana but not all have been committed, puts pressure on Airbus to deliver the NEO's. MAny of the a320 orders have been converted to A321's as well....slow all around (for cadets, NTR and TR pilots) until QR gets fixed delivery dates i guess...

As far as I know Qatar does not have 737 so is that mean all of the 737 TR pilots will move to the 777 and the 787

Yes Qatar hires for 787/777....only Boeings they have.
They have been hiring people without 777 type if they have time on similar type...737,757,767,747 etc....

The last email I got from them..

''We cannot confirm nor estimate a joining date at the moment, but hopefully by the end of January we will have clarity of the manpower requirements for this Financial Year. As soon as we do, we will contact you with a proposed date based on the manpower needs and your notice period and interview date.''
