    I have been working at Qatar Airways full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Tax free salary - Accommodation paid by company in shared apartment (under continues CCTV, and strict company rules) - destinations

    Cons

    - very bad treatment from the supervisors during the flights - lack of any compassion for employee (in case you are sick or face any personal issues) NO SECOND CHANGE POLICY (For example If you don’t perform well during a flight because of some personal issue or maybe due to exhaust, Welfare Team will be notified to investigate on you in order to terminate you) - army rather than company (minimum rest, no opportunity to express your thoughts to supervisors, POLICY to agree on EVERYTHING either right or wrong - technically not allowed to report sick (hospital are warmed in Doha not to provide sick note for crew, therefore not able to report sick) - minimum rest between flight - interferences into private life (marriage has to be approved by the company, not allowed to see a boyfriend in the company accommodation) -crew not able to monitor well cabin during the flight ( as cannot say anything to passengers, RULES OF SUBMISSION) - not able to travel in business class

    I worked at Qatar Airways full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They offer very nice flights to Doha in business class. They have flights all over the world for traveling. Steady work schedule

    Cons

    No pay raise or cost of living increase. No room for growth with in the company. You are treated like a second class citizen when trying to use your flight benefits. They will send you on duty travel without arranging for your work Visa, no hotel booking or payment, and no arrangements from airport, hotel, work. They will leave you in another country stranded.
