They are still hiring. Whatever FO or DEC. Do not speculate on whatís going on. It take time for sure but STILL HIRING. And then, Do not take it for granted if you are accepted, wait for contract and joining date !

Exactly. Passed the entire selection process but put in a talent pool. Still waiting after a year for letter and joining date.

Anybody know how long it takes from sending off an application to receiving a response? I only sent mine off a week ago but just interested in what kind of response time they have. Cheers

it seems like they already had enough candidates for the time being. I donít think they will call any time soon. Thatís what I heard from few people inside QR.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds like itíll take a while then. A mate of mine just got in and he said it took a month before they responded. Game of patience for now I guess!

Joining date

Hi Guys, I know, QR has tons of candidates, therefore, To get a offer letter and joining date it could be late, however, I would like to know, roughly, how long time to receive the call?
Roughly time.
it seems roughly 1 year.

if we are in talent pool, is sure they will call us?
Not sure when, but is sure they will do ? Or is there someone in talent pool that after several years never received a call, I wouldnít like that, is not fair, in that case, may be is time to look other option.
I have bee in talent pool since 8months ago.
airbus 320 FO
Or maybe Iím closer to get an offer.

A colleague of mine A320 DEC got flushed out of the talent pool. He received an email that he was in the pool for too long, and now he has to reapply all over again and do the assessment again.

Iím not sure, but Iím assuming since the beginning of last year since before that everyone was hired and given courses right away. I think this pool only started in FEB 2023.

Do not join QR as an f/o

Beware of extensive upgrade periods in QR. Right now those who have spent 8-9 years in the company are being interviewed. Once they pass they will wait for god knows how much longer for their upgrade course. You spend your years only to find out they donít care and you canít resign to not lose your seniority. I expect this upgrade periods to go as high as 13-14 years soon with the current upgrades/month. Seriously consider this comment and do not join as an f/o.

That is not entirely true.
Upgrades right now are pretty quick on Boeing while airbus has been stalling for a while. The rate could be close to 10 Boeing upgrades to 1 airbus.
On Boeing those with 8 years of seniority have already finished their upgrades and flying as captains, everything considering they lost 4 years for covid when everything stopped.
the real bottleneck is 1- pilots leaving from airbus (now they might be waiting for the bonus, but after that lot of people will say goodbye, thanks the maltese guy for that too)
2- training capacity is limited.
3- no new planes coming
