great experience, learned a lot

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at qatar airways

Prostickets, benefits, multi cultural environement. Opportunity to learn and improve yourself. Accomodation/transportation provided, utilties included.

Consshort breaks, understaffed.Management very strict and regulations are very tight. The staff in my department were overloaded with work, frustrated and pushed to their limits. Some managers had no experinece whatsoever and were ony promoted due to their connections

Advice to Senior Managementsome departments are understaffed
