@Anais Nin

I don´t think that will be a problem, just take some great pictures with you, and smile a lot. Anything about grooming they will tell after the OD.
good luck

Smile My selection still in process

hello guys and girls! i've already went through all the rounds that qatar airways had put before some selected candidates,and came out successfully. I sent them my medical reports, which were all well and good, when they asked for it while congratulting me on being selected.
I have a question for the existing Qatar Aiways Cabin Crew. I am 20 yrs old, and have an Indian Private Pilot License. I originally wanted to become a pilot, but due to financial problems, was unable to do so. Godwilling, i got selected for Qatar Airways Cabin Crew, but wanted to know if there's any probability for the cabin crew to become pilots in Qatar Airways in the distant future? Do they hire internal staff as cadet pilots? Im really apprehensive about this, coz even though im gonna love my job as a flight steward, my dream is to become a pilot. So can you please shed some light on this subject?

Corrective optics is not a prob.. as long as your vision is 20/20 after you wear your glasses.. and lenses should be clear ones, not coloured.. I myself wear glasses..

Anais Nin and Jayinkorea

Hi Anais Nin and JayinKorea!

I am actually from Quezon City and will fly to Cebu for the QR OD on the 23rd.

I am still looking for a place to stay in.

You mentioned that this will be your 2nd OD?

This will be my first, and it makes me nervous.

May I please know of any details, like what should be worn on that day and what else to be prepared?

I think invitation letters are not necessary.
Though I have not yet received an email from them with regard to my online application.

I do hope we can meet up with each other.

May we all be blessed!

Confirmation

Hey Everybody,

I have just sent my medicals finally a few hours ago but I have a question. I heard that they have a limit in their mail box so they cant receive any mail bigger then 1-2 Mb. Is that true? 'Cause my mail was around 6 but it says that the letter has been sent. Will I receive any confirmation or receipt that they have got my test results? I scanned them only today so its okay that there is no answer yet but I need to know that they have it cause also today morning I got a mail to send the results asap (within a week) otherwise they gonna end with my recruitment process...so i got scared and luckily could organize everything very quickly ... i sent it should be there already i just dont want to have trouble with the mail again and lose everything because of silly problems..

Hi Ryangirl. I scanned everything and sent the email and I got a failure email later. So, try to send a separate email for each test and it should go in. Be sure to get a confirmation that they received the medicals! Good luck! By the way, I am going on 26 March!

Yes, I sent separate emails. IE: Chest X-Ray in one email, Blood Test in another email and so on. Otherwise it would not go in. Be sure to get a confirmation! I have a friend who wasted one month because he didn't ask for one and they didn't receive them!

@ryangirl and flutterby

About the e-mail capacity, its not true. All major free-email service providers offer you an attaching capacity of 10mb. I had scanned 13 pages of my reports to send it ( 7mb ), all in one mail, attached as separate files. I had also sent the chest x-ray skiagrams in a separate mail. They confirmed their recieving the reports, but after 6 days...!!and that too saying that the CBC report wasnt detailed. So I rushed again to get it done from one of the best medical centres here, and sent it on the 13th. Still waiting IMPATIENTLY for their reply....!! And also while filling up the form in the final interview, I had filled in that i wanted 1 month notice before joining. So approx. , what should that mean, as in, when will they be chucking me off from here?? coz i ws told in the mail that i'm supposed to be leaving in JANUARY!! But here im learning that guys and girls are leaving on 3 diff. dates,25th jan, 20th feb, and 26th march....?? Right now i just hope they clear my meds from doha,cz the doc here said all my med. reports are fine.

So now is the new batch for 26th march?? are the seats all filled up for the feb 20th batch??

in QR, cabin crews who need glasses are allowed to wear glasses as long as it is approved by the office. the frame should be simple and those wearing glasses should be carrying the approval letter everytime they wear their glasses on flight. contact lens is also fine.

Medicals

Hey,

they received my medical exams yesterday night and I got my confirmation straight away today morning that they forwarded them to the hospital. Now, I am waiting to be cleared or repeat tests (hopefully wont happen- I did everything as detailed as I could).
Anyway they confirmed my 6MB mail along with the scanned attachments so there is no need to send them separately.

Batches: are only the male batches full for JAN/FEB? Whats the story with the girlie trainings?? I guess they are more often than the male type ..

I am tentatively booked to travel in January but as you can see Ive just forwarded my results so I am sure it is gonna be delayed and also I will have 2 weeks notice before leaving for Doha. And still, I have to be confirmed that they can change my departure city/country.. cause they "booked" it from Bucharest but I live in Vienna I only went to Romania to attend at the OD. I asked them but I dont know yet that they noticed it or not.

Ryangirl

Hi Ryangirl,

Are you from Hungary or from Austria?

Regarding the e-mail size limit: I sent all my medical results in one e-mail. Appr. 5 MB size. It came back, but only because the mailbox of my contact was full. I tried again later, and it was OK. I asked my contact to confirm if she received my e-mail. She was really nice, confirmed it the same day.

And by the way, Im also interested in the January and February batches. Are they really full? Im also tentatively scheduled to travel in January. If you get any news about the situation, please send it to me as well. Thanks!

i guess both the male/female training is going simultaneously, even if it isnt going on together. But im sure about the fact that they take in more females than males, coz lots of OD's were for "females only" So if they have batches containing the same no. of females as males, then for the females, it should probably be taking more time...! i just hope its not that way though .

I was also due for departure in jan, but am still waiting for their medical approval. If I get approved, the batch will probably be starting in march, or even later. For the time being, I just hope they approve my meds. AKeeping my fingers crossed!!

Qatar Airways Recruitment Process

I found this on a blog. It might be helpful to some candidates.


Cabin Crew Open Day – Day 1
Posted on the November 27th, 2009

The whole thing was like a dream for me, I applied for different airlines via their website and I have never heard back from any of them, even some of the websites showed that my application was unsuccessful even without an interview, somehow i was loosing hope till i found out about the Open Day.

A Newsletter

Sunday morning i received an email from Qatar Airways that they are conducting an open day to recruit Cabin Crews in my country and i was invited, I thought they invited me because they are interested in my resume but actually it was just a newsletter. I took a day off work, garbed my suit, fixed my hair, nice perfume, my CV and of course the smile and there we go i am ready to go.

Surprise!

It was easy to find the Hotel and from there i was able to find the Hall, i was there almost half an hour early and as i was going down the stairs to the hall i started to hear some people talking, the noise was getting louder as i step down, there were like a hundred or so standing out of the hall, i thought that the challenge is not going to be easy but guess what ? around a thousand applicant was already inside the hall!!! I was really shocked of how many people was there.

It looked like they got too many applicants more than anyone expect and it was a bit difficult to control that number of applicants. In a short words I had to find my way to get a seat in the interview hall as i was waiting for like 3 hours and it looked like it is getting more and more crowded. Yes I sneaked into the other hall where the recruiters are interviewing and I was lucky to find a seat for myself.

Screening Interview

A two very good looking ladies sitting in the front and like twenty applicant in front of each of the ladies, I took my place in the queue till it was my turn. The lady was really sweet, she asked for my CV which i had in my hand, she looked at it really quick that she couldn’t see nothing and then she asked “How old are you ?” “27″ i answered then she asked “Do you have any experience as a Cabin Crew?” i said “No” she answered “Not yet” , Then she said we will call you before 8pm today if you are selected to continue with us, It was like a very quick screening interview to eliminate some of the huge number they got, However the interview was like couple of minutes but I ended up sitting the whole day with one eye on the clock and one on the phone.

The Call

7:55pm my phone was ringing, Yes! I am in for the second day!!! I felt so released and really felt so happy that i was selected. I realized that I had a lot of things to prepare that I couldn’t even think about before as I was so stressed waiting for the next day and started to run around like a bee. I have never been to a Cabin Crew interview before and did not know what is it going to be for the next day, what kind of questions they are going to ask, I tried google but couldn’t find too much but found some people talking about assessment process that really helped a bit to know what to expect for the next day.

Cabin Crew Assessment Day – Day 2
Posted on the December 5th, 2009

After such a long day fighting to get my place in the Assessment Day i was so excited to take the next step.

It seems like out of that big number in the Open Day, only forty lucky applicants made it to the Assessment Day, They all looked good and it was a bit challenging to stand yourself between them.

Short video about Qatar

The same recruiters was there “the two sweet ladies”, they checked if somebody is missing and then they started with a video about Qatar. The video was nice and after the video they highlighted few things that could be a bit difficult for some people to live with, such as very hot weather in Qatar, Culture issues and some of the rules in the country.

English Test

After the short video they gave us an written English test that we need to do in 45 minutes, the English test was simple and the time was sufficient, it was like some multiple choice questions, a short essay about yourself and another essay about a topic they give.

During the test they called one by one to come over and reach a specified height, i think it was around 210cm. For gentlemen you should reach it standing normally on your feet and for ladies they can stand on the fingertips.

Assessment Round One

After the English test they grouped us in two groups, 20 applicants in each group and they gave us a topic to discuss while they watch us, they mentioned that we should not look at them during the discussion as they will be watching, the topic was a question that you have to discuss and come out with an answer all together in 20 minutes. Then we were asked to leave the hall till they call for us. We waited for around 30 minutes then we were again invited to the hall, they announced 20 numbers and then we were again asked to leave the hall but this time only the ones who heard their numbers will come back after saying good bye to the others.

Assessment Round Two

20 applicants were remaining, it was strange how easily someone could be disqualified. Anyway we are again grouped into two groups for another discussion but this time the topic was some problems that we have to find a solution for each of them and the time is also 20 minutes, Another 10 was disqualified and only 10 applicants were qualified for the final interview next day.

Things to do
  • Dress like if it is your wedding day
  • Keep smiling, know that you are watched
  • Try to get along quickly with others
  • Don’t talk too much and don’t stay so quite
  • Listen to the others during the group discussion and never stop someone to talk
  • Be yourself, don’t pretend because they know it when you do
Qatar Airways Final Interview
Posted on the January 1st, 2010

10 candidates were remaining, about 6 girls and 4 boys, They assigned half an hour for each candidate and another half between each interview and the next one.

Prepration

I googled some of the typical questions for the cabin crew final interviews, it was really useful to have an idea what to expect, I showed up for the interview about 5 minutes before my scheduled time, groomed to the best, smile on the face and all positive thinking. They kept me waiting for about 15 minutes before someone came out of the interview room to invite me in.

The Interview

The lady was really nice and she welcomed me very nicely, asked me to have a seat, interview started by introuducing themselves and a brief about my file they already have since the first day, One lady was taking the lead while the other was observing me and taking notes, it is very lady that you keep eye contact to both interviewrs, However one of the ladies was starring at me in the begining of the interview i don’t know if that was a technique she is using or that she liked me
Typical questions you will find online such as:
  • Tell us about yourself
  • Do you have a cabin crew experience ?
  • Why do you want to become a cabin crew ?
  • Do you have any experience doing a customer service job ?
  • Tell us about a bad experience with a customer and how did you deal with it.
it took about 20 to 30 minutes till they finally asked me if i have any questions, my advice is that “You have to ask a good question here”, otherwise it could reflect that you are not really intersted in the job.

Finally they told me to expect an email within the next three weeks either i am accepted or not. they also mentioned that in case i did not get any answer from them i should contact them, luckily i got my Congratulations email after 1 week

Things to do:
  • take contacts from others in the second day to stay in touch.
  • prepare yourself for the interview by googling the most common questions.
  • keep an eye contact to both interviewers.
  • when they ask you “do you have any questions?”, you should ask a good on
