Given the remarks about this airline by serving crew can anybody give a good reason to apply to it? :(

QR ain't all that bad!! .. Its a matter of whether or not YOU can take the pressures that come along with it.

We aren't as bitchy as a lot of the other airlines. We love to party & you need to be able to keep up with the crew.

Of course, as with any airline, there will always be the lazy ones, the super "onz" ones, and also the nice ones.. If you are adaptable and able to get along with over 60 different nationalities, then you'll fit in with ease!

If you don't like to party, thats not a problem .. you still wouldn't feel that left out, as long as you're creative enough with your time to keep yourself entertained so that the regimental lifestyle here wouldn't get to u..

As for the passengers... They are colorfully different and their demands can get to you if you aren't prepared to smile in spite of it all.. To add to it, they aren't always that kind to asians. But there will also be days were the passengers will put a smile on your face and make you feel like the world is your oyster.. But if you cannot motivate yourself to at least make 1 passenger happy per flight, its gonna be hard to motivate yourself for long.

For those who are too used to the way we live here in Singapore and aren't willing to accept that changes are part and parcel of life and only know how to whine and complain about everything should really not consider applying as I can almost promise you that you won't be happy here.

For those willing to take up this challenge, I'm sure QR will welcome you guys with open arms. :)

Hope this helps. :) Cheers!!

Hi qatarbabe,
Nice to see you back again, after a long absence. Do tell us what it's like when you are away from the airline in Qatar, I hear widely varying and contradictary stories especially in respect to women.

Hey Plavt,
Its nice to be back too. :)

What do you mean by the contradictory facts about the women there?Are you talking about their behaviour or the attention they get?

At the end of the day, it all boils down to a few simple things.

1) How are you dressed?
2) How do you carry yourself?
3) Respect of Religion.

You are in a muslim country, you need to realise that over there, women are covered up (mostly from head to toe).. A lot of girls choose to continue in their hot shorts and skimpy tops.. Naturally the men will flock to you and think that a) you're easy, or b) you're a prostitute.. For crying out loud, majority of their women are covered and when they do see flesh, its only natural that they'll drool / ogle / disturb.

As the saying goes, "When in Rome, do what the Romans do" .. You need to learn to respect their religion and the rules that come along with it. If you don't respect it, how do you expect them to respect you back in return?

No one is asking you to be all covered up from head to toe, but long bottoms and just a t-shirt is still alright..

I can't promise you that you will NEVER get harassed in Doha. Even the guys aren't let off at times too.. but, it does reduces the amount of attention you attract to yourself just by how you dress..

I normally wait till I'm outstation to really doll up and party.

You have answered one of the main points but are women banned from driving and being in a car with a man? Ask that question here in Britain and as ludicrous as it seems I get different answers from different people. :o

Haha .. Of course as a woman, you can drive and be in the same car with another gentleman.. The only rule is that if you are IN UNIFORM, they would prefer that you do not be driven to work by a gentleman as they want to maintain a certain image of an airline, whats more it is a muslim / local airline.

The ruling of not being in the same car as a men only applies to the local women there who are wearing the full abaya.

Is there anyone who's keen to attend the interview with Qatar come 9th of next month in KL? Also, i'm not too sure if this has been addressed in previous posts, but to anyone who's familiar with the assessment process of Qatar, are the second and third round of interviews conducted in a single day alone?

Next month 9th is the second and third round of interviews? When they did the first round? How you know about their recruitment? You received mail from them?
Some ppl watch things happen, some ppl let things happen, but I make things happen... The sky is my limit!
