Had a good experience in QEWC for 19years as instrument technician But no job security.As was terminated from job suddenly with no good reason.Had to suffer with family.was very good in my job.Always ready for overtime.But appraisal was not up to mark.
To take up responsibility as a technician with the ability to diagnose technical problems and determine proper solution. Mechanical Technician performs installation of machines and machines parts, and takes care of the maintenance and repair works.

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. I can say about the management was I realize that there will be no more perfect and ideal management that I am looking for but still hoping .The management of the QEWC for me is having lack in giving the better benefits of the employer especially those who are well recommended for their hard works and dedication. But for the culture I can say that it is really adaptable . The hardest part of my job was really during summer season because we all know that it was really a challenge for us to work in summer season because of the whether and because of how heavy the work of an operator it may be. But I enjoyed it as well challenge accepted since I am working in Middle East. And the most enjoyable part of my job was it is when my supervisor or other workmates telling me your doing a great job , thanks for the help and when I can make them smile every time they see me working and around in the plant. Because despite that working in a power - more...

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.
Good Shift schedule
job security and salary increaase

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.
Free accommodation, food subsidies.
