NJ - answers to your questions: Could you please share more details on your face to face interview? -> Please ask specifics, was too broad to be able to give you details. - How did they arrange it? -> Everything was arranged via emails and phone calls. - How long did you spend in Doha? -> Total time was 3 days as I was transiting from North America - How long the interview face to face last? -> Approximately 1.5 hours, I chose to also meet others at the organization as well to see how they found the organization. - How many person interviewed you? -> Total of 3 people Was it only Procurement people?

No tricky questions, do your homework on the company. Each role that's being interviewed for is different.
