Hi want to fly.. huh my CV was 1 page and a half.. and i also had a cover letter. the layout was my contact details on top, and then followed by my experience that i have.. i kept it short and to the point.. well thats the tip that i can give you. give a nice layout keep it short and precise.. remember they have loads of CVs to scan so make yours stand out dress up well, get very good photos and dont forget to smile all the time there.. and clark let me know on which day you are reaching doha ok?

you are correct. there is no need for you to apply online.
just show up with your best smile and CV, .

by they way,are you female? most of the "jays" i know are males. and the OD in cebu this 24th are for females only.

Hello everbody! Can please anyone tell me how long do they take time to call for the interview? Im based here in Doha, Qatar and I sent my CV last week through the dropbox in the main building. Are there any pros & cons if you're applying locally.

Are there any successful local hires here? Any feedbacks are highly appreciated. Please reply me as soon as you can. Thank you very much!

hi there, see you on the 24th then, .

last October OD in Cebu , there were around 500-600 applicants. however, in Manila, I heard there are around a thousand aspiring cabin crews. that's twice the number of Cebu applicants, .

Hey there!..

As far as I know, Doha is not applicable venue as of the moment. Before, I think they had interviews there in Doha.
Honestly, before I was planning to go to Doha for a direct interview that was last Sept 09 and they discouraged me to go because they were not hiring cabin crews directly and advised to go to another gcc countries near by my country saudi arabia.. Then I went to Bahrain and attended the interview.
You can check their website if there is OD in any gcc countries near to Doha.

Are you an Arab? if then, you can easily go to the gcc countries they have OD.
Don't worry they are continuously hiring...

Goodluck..

@ Anais Nin

how short is your hair?
They have some "hair rules"... the ladies should not have very short hair, and men canīt have hair too long, or shaved. in my case, when I attended the OD I had my hair reaching my ears, I pass through the AD but before my FI, as iīm a male I was told to cut my hair...
so maybe if they like you, they will advise you to let your hair grow... Take some really nice pictures along with your resume, and try to make a very good impression in the few seconds you have with the recruiters at the OD and I think youīll be just fine...
hope that helps yous...
any doubts, donīt hesitate asking ok?
good luck

for my qr application in KL, Malaysia Dec 2009.
CV Submission was Dec 12, in the morning.
Got the call in the afternoon inviting me for the assessment the next day.
Dec13, in the morning We had our assessment, we were around 50 and 12 of us got in for the final interview the next day.
Dec 14, Final Interview
Dec 28 2009, Finally received my congratulations email

for my qr application in Doha, Qatar last Dec 2008.
I sent my cv through email months ago., I actually didn't received any invitation so I called the QR Cabin Crew Recruitment and ask. I also sent my resume through their office. On the 4th of December I received an invitation for the assessment to be held on Dec 20th in the afternoon. We were about 50 and luckily I was the only person who passed for the final interview. Dec 21st I had my final interview and January 5, 2009 I received the thank you email for my participation. a.k.a rejection mail

thats it, hope i was able to help Kabayan!

oh I forgot to tell you michaelskofield. They just had their assessment last Dec 18, 2009. A friend told me and only 2 girls got in for the final interview. As I recall they only recruit Cabin Crew in Doha every December not sure though.

Hi there

To be successful working with Qatar Airways you will firstly need to show you have experience in any customer service sector. Which means in your resume you will need to display experiences you have in any customer service role. Usually the Qatar OD will take 3 days. The first day they will brief you on who/what and where Qatar is, lifestyle in Doha and cabin crew lifestyle. After that, we will approach them with our CV/resume and they usualy ask q's such as "tell me about yourself" or "What is your background" or maybe even "why are you here today". You will have 30-45 seconds to impress them. After that you leave and go home.

Should you succeed after the first day, they will call you and congratulate you with your success and invite you to a second day interview. The second day interview would normally be group work. They will organise you into a team and see how you interact with others and how well you work to build support to any team situation or problem solving task the recruiters give you.

And if you succeed after the 2nd day, they will ask you to come back on the 3rd day for a final one to one interview with the recruiters. This will take approximately 30-45 minutes where they will ask you various questions from handling difficult customers to how well you work with teams.

Remember to always smile, dont be too nervous and posture is very important! sit straight, dont shake your legs and bite your nails! Wear business attire and show the recruiters that you are well presented and ready for the job.

Hope this helps, and wish you all the best! I am attending an OD 31st Jan in Sydney so lets do our best to achieve our dream!

Cheers

hey anais nin your hair is ok.. it needs to be styled down and you have to move it away from your face, that is the side bang shouldnt be there koz it would look weird when you are wearing the hat in your uniform.. your hair shouldnt cover your forehead.. so any style which covers your forehead or lower, they'll tell you to clip it down and move it behind your ear.. thats wat the recruiters told me.. bout female hairstyles.. and for us guys.. they say well groomed, no spikes, no stiff hair and no oil gel or watever makes it look wet.. but a little amount of gel is acceptable..

indianflygirl.. just go to the OD and be yourself dress up very nicely, kieep on smiling.. if you are married it doesnt matter as long as you are up to their standards.. check the older posts to get an idea bout the questions asked..
