I think the process for the interview hasn't changed since 3 years ago..
The Open Day is basically..The interviewers would play a video introducing Qatar Airways, n Doha as a city itself and then open to the floor for questions and then submission of the CVs..there would b no interaction with the interviewers at that time BUT..still u have to b formally dressed.First impression counts. They would then give u a call the next day within a certain timing to ask u to come back for a proper interview where u would sit for an English Test n at the same time they would take ure height n weight.After that round (on the same day) they would call out who to stay for the next round n this time it'll b a group discussion and then they would again call out who to stay n those selected would be asked to come back the next day for a ONe to One interview.. n finally if ure selected they will send u an EMAIL telling u if u got the job or not..n from there u have to do ure medical tests n if u pass all the tests then that is when u can finally get all excited n resign from ure current job n start getting all excited n pack!!..Good luck pple..

Hi! Could you please share a little about getting your own accomodations in doha? How much rent for what kind of apartment, distance from the airport, what's the cab fare like to the airport, what does an average and reliable car cost, and whatever other details you can share. Thanks.


Why would u want to move out of the accomodation when everything is free??You don't have to fork out a single cent if u're staying at the accomodation it's a nice n decent apartment with a bus to pick u up to n from work..
Well if u insist on moving out n living on ure own..half ure salary would go to the rent n that EXCLUDES water n electrical bills.And u have to find ure own mode of transportation..well if u have a car then u'll b paying for the car so basically end of the day u'll end up with..no savings!!.Average rent in Doha is QR4500 for a two room apartment n that is without furniture..so go calculate if it's worth it to be living out on ure own... :)
I'm not cabin crew. FOs on expat terms are given the equivalent of about SGD 4200/QAR10k in housing allowance alone, plus other allowances for utilities and transport. Obviously, if I took the company accoms, I lose the allowance. So i might as well help them spend the money haha.

Anything else you can share?

Hey guys, I went to the previous interview last year. Only got thru to the second round tho. They are pretty fast in helding an interview and quiet surprised that they still recruiting people while some other airline, e.g emirates, are stopping their recruitment drive.

This is an open day, so u dont need to worry whether u applied it online or not. Just bring ur photos and resume.

And I tell u, u better have a great picture (professionally taken) bcuz in the end of the day, they will choose u from the pictures and simple yet powerful resume. Those people with a 2-3 pages resume will unlikely be entertained (Mine is 1 page only and I saw quiet numbers of pple who got thru with also carried a simple resume).

The first day will be a presentation and hands out ur resume only, be presentable when u give ur resume, cuz that will be ur first interview.

I will be going too on Sunday, I live in Pasir Ris, anyone? Oh, im a guy btw.. :)

xoxo,
D

Ladies and Gentlemen..
word of advice..go for the job only if u REALLY want it..It's nice to be able to travel here and there but it's a challange.Work wise and living in Doha both a challange.You have to come prepared with an open mind n patience..Lots of Patience..Life here is really different but it's really an eye opener. I have learnt a lot living here. I have grown to b more independant, learnt bits n pieces of new languages, made new frens, how not to take things for granted..all these i learnt through the years..
I always tell pple..if u can survive in this environment,you can survive anywhere!...so think twice pple..

Yeah, I have heard a thousand and one bad stories about working with Qatar from some who were from there, and even from cabin crew who aren't from there. My friend is highly discouraging me to go for it because she thinks I'll die from all the control. Haha.

But I believe that if you want to work with a Middle Eastern airline, you gotta learn about the culture that will be very different from Singapore.

And I think the mindset is to tell yourself that you're there to work and not to have too much fun. There is fun in every job but there are limits too...

By the way Princess Qatar, care to share more experiences being a crew there? Like, how long is a layover in each country, and such? And what do you do on your spare time when you're at your apartment?

Also I think many of us would want to be prepared for what type of people Qatar are looking for. Like, in terms of attitudes, looks, experience, etc...
