Thank you so much for the objective response. I m little bit hesitant to join QR , I try to convince myself , but I have fears for taking risks , its not only company changing but also whole environment will change. So I try to collect positive things. As I understood , rosters are very difficult. That was the main prefference for me to fly long haul flights. ( my friends who fly longhaul , execute 3-4 flights in a month). In QTR that situation does not exists? Not written anywhrere but do QR pays 90 riyals/ hour for 777 FO? Can we integrate offs ( 6 end of moths 6 beginning of month total 12)? Can you immediately go for 3-5 days off in case of any emergency that occured in your country?

Thanks again for responses.

Requirement: 1 year since last flight...even worst: six month... why is this?
 
Why is the reason Airlines always ask for currency within the last year or the last six previous months like you guys do? As for now, I have 1 year and 3 months out of business, and very excited to come back, but this requirement seems i:ugh::ugh::rolleyes::rolleyes:mpossible to accomplish from me.. can you tell?

disagree.
 
I disagree this. A Left seat is a Left seat. there are a thousand jobs for left seaters. few for F/O. better jobs, better salaries, bottom line, once a Captain, always a Captain. I would not turn back a chance for seat upgrade, even to thing bigger. in fact, going for the left seat, its thinking bigger, best regards.!!!

Assessment Process
 
Hi Gents,

Ive had a good look through this thread and still have a few questions...

Re the assessment process in Doha;

I understand Day 1 is the welcome and presentation followed by the Tech Exam, how in-depth is the tech? Will Ace suffice or is it recommended to look a bit deeper and dig the old ATPL notes out?

And then the cognitive tests; Does this include maths tests or is it just boxes and stuff?
Ive bought the feedback from Latestpilotjobs.com however its not great. There seems to be some contradictory info so would really appreciate the low down from someone who's been out to Doha for the tests recently.

Many Thanks for any responses.

Hi Boombs.. About Interview, it is more a friendly chat than an Interview. More questions about your behaviour and problems occurred in the cockpit(DO NOT LIE) and do not say "it never happens to me" for all questions. It is ok for some, but for all questions, they will fail you.
About Maths, it is really a problem. Maths questions do not have an EXACT answer, so, you will choose a "close to" answer from 4 boxed options. Do not expect even the last digit to be the same.
Example:
98721 x 11308 =
a)1011009121
b)1211001019
c)1267080902
d)959010200

Answer is "A". The result it is not exact. Never.(Crazy).

Thanks very much for the reply...

Ive had an email saying the process has changed again, not sure if this ridiculous maths test has now been binned.

How long ago did you do assessment?

Id be very interested to hear from any guys who have done the assessment in the last few days.

Thanks again!

Interview test
 
Can anybody confirm if the interview assessment has changed .... Ie no math / cognitive test kindly pm

ItsMeFromEarth 30th Oct 2014 16:36

The new Airline assesnment, is tailored to the new generation, No Math, No Language test.
The only skill test is Super Mario (to be Nintendo qualified), straight to level 11, where you have to collecte 12 Golden mushrooms, and save 3 silver apples. :}

Hello..
Guys I want to ask about the new airport operations for pilots, is it easier now compared the old one?

Shooting_Star 31st Oct 2014 12:36

freddie16, similar fashion to the ones on lpj, although you will not see many questions from their examples. Also note that quite a few answers are wrong!

The cognitive test might dissapear indeed.

Anyone has an idea how long it would take after the offer to effectively move to Doha these days?

320goat 31st Oct 2014 16:00

Variable feast I'm afraid. Like everything out here!

casablanca 1st Nov 2014 02:49

@vmax400.......just quick reply to your question but yes the new airport is going pretty smooth and has reduced the congestion and delays.....long overdue!
