This post provides details on becoming Qatar Cabin Crew.
Qatar has a careers website that lists all the current job vacancies for the company. You can apply for a role online or apply to attend one of their recruitment events.
Most of the recruitment events for Qatar are Open days where you have to go and submit your application personally. Being an Open day, anyone who meets the described requirements can attend. For example, you must be 21 years old, have a minimum high school education with fluency in written and spoken English. You must also be willing to relocate to Doha, Qatar.
On the day, you are required to bring along:
- your CV,
- a photocopy of your passport,
- a passport photo taken in formal business attire
- a photocopy of your highest education certificate.
You will then be told whether you have been invited to attend an interview for the next day.
If you need help tailoring your resume to the needs of the airline, I have a Cabin Crew CV Template and a 1:1 Cabin Crew tuition and guidance to help you out!
If you have been invited back, you will then go through the assessment day. This day will involve a number of different steps and tasks for you to complete to demonstrate your suitability for the role.
The day will start with a written English test which is designed to assess your fluency in English and your ability to understand it. You will then have to complete an oral test where you choose a word from a bowl and then speak about it for as long as possible. While this is happening, recruiters will ask if you have any distinctive tattoos. You will also be asked to complete the reach test to demonstrate you are tall enough to reach the overhead lockers.
This is followed by the elimination rounds. You will be divided into teams and asked to complete a task in 15 minutes. After these group games, there’s a different round of eliminations and then the final candidates are chosen to attend a final interview, where you will be asked more personal questions based on your CV and experience. You will then find out whether you have got the job via email in the preceding weeks.
Qatar provides new Cabin Crew members with a 7-week training course. This is designed to provide you with everything you need to know for the job. It will cover safety, emergency procedures and customer service.
As part of this training, you’ll be required to pass a number of written and practical tests to progress and start the job.
Nervous about training or want to find out more? I have it all covered in my Becoming Cabin Crew e-book.
You will be working across the world, flying both long and short haul flights. You will fly around 80-100 hours per month and are given at least 8 days off per month.
Since you will be living in Qatar while working, it is important that you adhere to the rules of the country. For example, your father or brother would not be able to stay in the same accommodation as you when visiting.
Your salary will be completely tax-free. It’s based on a basic salary and an hourly pay per flight hour. Your salary will grow with every promotion, and not per year.
When working for Qatar, you will be based in Doha, Qatar and will be provided with a shared, furnished apartment. Qatar also provides you with transport to and from the airport before and after your shifts.
