I attended the OD here in Sao Paulo (Brazil) last Sunday. It was my first time and there were about 120 people (not more than that, I suppose). Usual stuff... they showed us a video, talked about salary, benefits, things like that... Then it was time to hand over our CVs and photos... when it was my turn Tanja (a malaysian woman) asked why I had been to Italy and what I was currently doing)... it took about 30 secs, then I went home. When it was about 15h30 she called me and told me to be there next day at 10am.
Next day there are about 40 people only. We did an English test (nothing to worry about) and an essay... the topic was: "Share an experience that you went through that made you grow stronger and take a new direction in life. What have you learnt from this? How can it help you be a potential flight attendant?"
While we were doing the test they called one by one to do the reach test and asked one or two more questions. After 50 minutes we handed in the English test and were asked to wait outside the room for 30 minutes.
Next, they called us back into the room and annouced those who had made it to the next stage.... now we were only 24.... we were split into 2 groups of 12 people each and given two topics to discuss. The first was:
- Pretend you're a flight attendant and there's a passenger who's blind. How would you deal with this?
- Pretend you're a flight attendant and there's a mom with 4 bratty children messing around. How would you deal with this?

We had 6 minutes to talk about these 2 situations... Then we had the next topic:
- Mention 5 things that you're proud of being brazilian and 3 things that you're ashamed of.

We had 6 more minutes... After the group discussion we were aked (again) to wait outside... then they read a list of those who had made it to the next stage... unfortunately I didn't =/ I left the hotel with my soul shattered and wondering what could've possibly gone wrong. My English may not be perfect but it was way better than many others who had passed and I didn't dominate the conversation or stayed with my mouth shut all the time. There were people who didn't listen to others at all, didn't give you room to say anything and others who just wouldn't open their mouth no matter what. And they succeed... One things that I noticed was that when the recruiters were walking around the group and taking notes, they weren't paying attention to what we said at all... many people said unprofessional things such as giving chocolate to the children (without the mother's consent) and made it through... Apparently they were analysing other things, body language I guess... but again it makes me thing where I went wrong, because I didn't act so differently from those who passed... anyway.. next time then =) Good luck for all of you flying to Doha or attending an OD.

Confused about Open Day - can you go without invitation?

I applied for Qatar Open Day in London on 28th November but am a bit confused now. On their website they say that you are most welcome to attend the Open Day without invitation letter but after applying I received an automated e-mail that they will review my application and only short listed candidates will be contacted

So does anybody know whether it's worth just turning up on saturday as they suggest on their website? Or wait them to contact me? It's just the OD is in 3 days so most likely they won't even have enough time to review it.

They ment they will review your application for the Assessment day,but in most cases they dont do that. So just go to the OD and hand in your CV with pics.
Good luck

hello fabys.. huh, being on this forum for quite some time now.. its the first time that i hear someone having hypothiroidism.. im not really sure whether they disqualify you for that.. but some things that you can think of are.. with this medical condition will you be able to work effectively as CC, does oxygen pressure in the cabin affect you? will the disorganized sleep/wake cycle affect you? well things like that mostly.. hope that everything goes on fine.. dont forget to update us

Good luck to those who are waiting for medical clearance...

I am currently waiting for my ticket and visa, and it's getting really stressful. I know since last week that I'm supposed to be traveling on Sunday 29th, but I still don't have my tickets nowadays...
Can please someone tell me if this is the normal way they do, or if I should start thinking that my flight is delayed to next week?

My biggest problem is that I live 600kms away from Madrid, which is the departure point of my flight, so I really need to plan my trip to Madrid with time enough, booking the hotel to pass there Saturday night and so on... Flights and hotels are getting more expensive every hour that passes by... This is getting on my nerves

Hi friends!

I just received an email from Qatar saying that my DOJ has been changed, due to delay of my visa issue. I'm flying on 13th December

In this moment I am sooo tired and confused... I had all my things packed already, and was saying goodbye to all friends and family, organizing everything here........

And now I need to wait 15 more days, double work unpacking everything again... and keeping it ready to pack back within 2 weeks

Anyway... I know I'm lucky for having reached medical clearance...

By the way... ANYONE HERE TRAVELING ON 13TH??

@ Iceania

I am supposed to travel on 11th December if nothing changes and start the training on 14th! Too bad you have to unpack everything now, but I guess we will start the training at same date then?

btw are you a boy or a girl

Don't be disheartened. They say that everything happens for a reason. If it makes you feel any better I had an interview with Emirates on Monday and didn't get to the final stage and I was gutted but I know what it was that let me down.

The important thing is to learn from your mistakes.

Do you think you might know what you did wrong? When can you re-apply? Have you applied to the other ME airlines?

Chin up.

Good Day!

I had my final interview last Nov 15 in Bahrain and told me to wait for 3 weeks.

Supposed to be I will be having my anual vacation this January back to Philippines, what I am going to do? do I have to go for it or stay here in Saudi Arabia to wait for their further notice? Or I can do whatever their advises in Philippines? I don't have any idea since this is my first time to apply for QR..help me.


Another thing, how many months would it take to process all the screenings untill they wil advise you to go to Doha for the training?

Thank you so much...hope you can help regarding this matter.

I need your help.

Best Regards

Hey


I am so sorry for what happened.... After reading your message, I got quite nervous, thinking what will happen to me too.

Hope I can make it.


Try again....never think of giving up. You can make it next time!
