The lengths people go to to join QR
 
Is Qatar Airways some sort of swimming club? Lot of folk seem to be splashing about in that medieval backwater.:O

Qr
 
Man, thats not the type of news we wanted to hear.. Sorry to hear it.. Btw what position did u apply for?

I guess its its time to hold on to the application and apply later around nov or dec..:sad:

Are here maybe pilots who fly for Qatar which were already employee of the airline? Like the thread in the 'Wannabees' section from working as a cabin crew first before they go into the cockpit..

Cheers

it's time to leave.they are recommending ours to leave.
 
Dear Applicant,



Thank you for your continued interest in joining the Qatar Airways Flight Deck team.



As discussed in our previous email we will be updating you regularly on the progress of those candidates in our flight deck talent pool and hope to invite you to join us when our operational requirement permits, however at this time there is no significant change to our manpower requirement.



We do understand that due to the uncertain timeframe for holding pool candidates, you may be considering other career options. As such, please advise us if would like to remain in our talent pool or would prefer to be withdrawn at this stage for any reason.



We will again contact you at the end of November with another update.

In my opinion the temperament of the ´Updates´get more and more negative.
The first email still gave me some hope of getting called at the end of this year.
The ´end of july´ update diminishes that hope and leaves me wondering if they will ever call me at all (or just delete the talent pool when the 1 year interview to DOJ expires...)
In the email it was stated 'We hope to invite you when operational requirements permit' Also it was not adressed to me as a person anymore, but just to 'applicant'.
Maybe I'm a pessimist but the whole e-mail was short and cold.

Besides that, what happend that recruitement came to such an abrubt stop?

Thanks guys, and goodluck to all of you.

expecting it to be later......much later......just hope they keep me in the pool for however long it takes.

iQatar 8th Aug 2012 14:35

Why do some get a update end of August and my letter that I received this morning says my next update is end of November?

Hfiallo 8th Aug 2012 15:17

Delay again
 
Same email more news late Nov.

Homo Ludens 8th Aug 2012 15:28

Hey, guys, here are some numbers from the 'inside':
Pilots force as of end of 2011 - 1500 (approx).
Same as of now - 2200.
So they've made their numbers for this year. My guess is, though, this includers the people who got their offers of emploinment/fleet allocation and waiting for joining date. Ergo End-of-August update.
More numbers: people, swimming in the pool - 400.
Simple math dictates whoever is in the pool right now should join (meaning arrive in Doha) by the end of March, early April next year at the latest. That's taking into consideration also people leaving the Company meanwhile.
Bottom line - things are not so hopless as they may seem at the moment.
Good luck to all!
Cheers!
H.L.

daknarr 8th Aug 2012 18:33

Thanks, H. L.! I got the update this morning too...November for me. No worries as I'm in for the long haul.

Correct me if I'm wrong. Must us in the holding pool now reply to this email to say that we are still interested in a job with QR?
