Hello!

I'm looking for some advice from people working for Qatar already, I have some stories but I would like to hear it from people themselves.

How are the conditions of work, say, compared to Etihad and Emirates?

And what is the pay like compared to Etihad and Emirates?

Feel free to private message me as some information may not be suitable to post publicly.

Thanks in advance!

Oh my god the travel concessions are just great! unlimited ID 90 and ID 50. and Free one ticket! Most airlines only offer 3 times ID 90 and unlimited ID 50 you can put your parents in ID 90 and ID 50 but not for siblings. But for Qatar, I'm amazed you can bring along your brothers and sisters. that's what I love working for the airlines. hehe..

I don't work for Qatar....yet jejeje.. however, mi amiga who currently works for Qatar does upload pictures of her travels, hotels, foods, cultures she comes across on her Facebook. I don't think it should be problem as long as you're not smoking and drinking in your uniform.

Male applicants?

Hy!

Do male applicants get their e-mail after the final interview later than the girls?

I've been at the OD in Budapest, got to the final interview as onliest boy and every girl gets already the e-mail. Two girls got rejection e-mail and the others congratulation e-mail.
I hope if I haven't got rejection e-mail till now than they'll send congratulation soon

we are having problems here with male accomodation, i´ve been here for two months and i´m still in a provisionary accomodation, wich by the way is really really really good hehehehe. Moving maybe next week to a brand new building. Maybe that´s why male applicants are receveing the response after the girls...
