Qatar Electricity and Water Company (QEWC) had been my first employer since it is my first work overseas. I am very thankful for the opportunity they given to me as a Charge hand operator for the plant. I work under the Operation Department with a 4 days duty (12 hours each) and 4 days off in rotation.

I learned a lot in the process the issuance of the permit the clearing of Defect Cards and following the SOP before and after isolation of certain equipment.

Because despite that working in a power

the company has a great opportunity to give in the sense that the technology is modern and updated. The shift schedule for employees also is a good favor. But it lacks in employee/management good relation. Employment security can not be assured. the most enjoyable part of the job is during troubleshooting which enables our hidden talents to come out.
Pros
Good Shift schedule
Cons
job security and salary increaase

Operates 24 hours a day.
Mostly workers are nice and approachable.

Jobs are slightly slowed down due to language barrier.

Maintaining safety for everyone is the best part of my job.

typical maintaining the operation of the power plant and water desalination are are in good condition, I learn some idea of machining technique in this company, a very big different from the last company where i was employed. This company are 100% convention machines are use. I have nothing to say about the management. worker are from different nation. the hardest part of the job that sometime we encounter technical problem on tools and materials. I enjoyable part of the job is gaining and growth of technical skill through day to day job experience.
Pros
Free accommodation, food subsidies.
