just to be clear. Many people have been invited back and have submitted the online tests. As far as I know, that is where we are all waiting right now.

A member of the recruitment team will be contacting us shortly... apparently.

If you stop and think about it, makes total sense a personality (psychological) test to asse how much damage the separation processe has caused to an individual. Specially the way it was handled by the company... I bet lots of people left the company carrying back home some hard feelings, maybe HR is trying to filter those individuals. I know it sounds crazy but that's how their "Indian heads" work.

From where you got that source ? Thanks
Half of it was a joke the other half is not (i don’t know the exact number of recalls yet), my source doesn’t come from Flt ops as i used to be in the banking sector before so i know a few of these cats that are pretty high up in companies most will never hear of it but i will give you two hints auditors and fiscal year.

Apologies to any that got upset it was not my intentions to fool you around.

I wanted someone to read between the lines” You did, I appreciate it!

He is the King Maker right now in QR, You want NOC butter him up, You want to extend your stay Butter Him Up, You want your EOSB Butter him up. He is just a “Manager” but with the Powers of “Chief”.

Hello gents
just for curiosity what is now with the reduced contract the actual income for a captain?

Hi Guys, it's been a while. everyone is so quiet :-) . i've just talked to a friend who still employed by QR. Looks like they have stopped the redundancy because they are starting their new financial year in April 2021 (It doesn't mean they won't redundant staff, but they were rushing to do it before 01st of April).

Does anyone knows if they've implemented a procedure to bring back staff who were outside DOHA?
Especially for pilots? any manual for rejoining pilots ? and what happen if the rating expire? how to get back an RP?

I hope one of you could have an answer to these questions.

God luck to all.

Exclamation

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, shame on both of us.”by: Stephen King

..so the saying goes, i hope most of us (redundant flight crews) would think a million times and reflect how we get to where we are right now....just my 2cents.

Anyone care to explain the rationale behind Qatar laying off pilots prior to the dnd of the financial year? Heard this already but I don’t understand the benefit to the airline only to rehire a few months later...

Hi Silver68, it's probably linked to the budget of their financial year.

Rationale and Qatar in the same sentence. Not a common sight.

Its difficult to fathom the level of incompetence in the QR Flight Ops / Man Power management with the latest e mail.
