Hello ladies and gentlemen,

As we have received some email with no proof or unclear proof we would like to shortly highlight again.
Please send appropriate proof which is traceable back to your as a person rather then general knowledge.

Thank you in advance

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

It seems to be a bit unclear for some newcomers but sending an email with the message : Assessment done and placed on hold
Unfortunately is not acceptable. This can be written down by anyone and does not provide any proof.
Please be so kind to send a screenshot of the email that was sent to you to tell you that you are being placed in the holding pool.
Bare in mind this email will be treat confidential but is for your own protection when placed in the group.
As the group is private I am sure you can appreciate only people enter that are actually in the same position as you.
We cannot accept any requests without proof our apology for that.

Happy relaxing at the pool.

Hello all,

So great to see that slowly people are getting DOJ. Maybe still people out there that are not in the holding pool app but want to be in the app?
Make sure you sent the full proof email received from the company to the email mentioned to authorise your entrance.

We are looking forward to work all together in the future.

Hello all,

As we receive so many emails without phone number we would like to remind you that swimming without a phone number is can be dangerous.
In order to reach you in case of drowning it is vital to provide us with a number ;-).
So please don't forget not only to bring your own towel but to provide us with a number.

Hi ....

Nice to see there is an enthusiastic joiners for QA. I have just been offered an interview in Dec. Just a few queries :-
How long most of you have been waiting, after confirmation? Why such a long waiting period ? Is it worth the wait?

Good luck on the joining date....
Cheers

​​​​​​Actually the wait time in the talent pool is not so long anymore. Last year was an exception due to the blockade, which completely changed the scenario and manpower requirements for Qatar.

Now that everything is settled and they figured out their numbers things have started to move on a faster pace again. I'd say the average wait time right now is 6 months.

Bear in mind that plans change REALLY fast in this part of the world. What is true today might not be a month from now, so don't take those numbers as a hard rule, but barely a ballpark figure for the current situation.

The key is to be patient and wait for your turn, but always have a plan B.

WTF are you talking about, I am personally in the holding pool since March 2017, not that I care anymore I've got a good job now but still, 6 months might be for Boeing, you do the math for the bus drivers.

Take what people post with a pinch of salt. Nobody knows exactly how long it will be as it depends on many factors such as whether you are A or B rated, hours, if you are typed on QR aircraft, a Capt or an FO, the ongoing blockade, aircraft orders/deferrals, etc. And probably many more factors which are beyond me :-)

For Boeing pilots, things are picking up which is good news for swimmers. The upcoming new FTLs might have something to do with that.

OW.

I'm sorry, indeed I forgot to mention I was talking about Boeing rated candidates. For Airbus things seems to be quite slow.

Would you guys say that the pool is mostly full of pilots with little or no heavy time at all?

I would imagine so, and or probably taking into account how you faired during the test, interview and sim. I interviewed recently and got a start date already.
