No Deal kapatid.. Offer is too low.

Try Hamad, they give a real goof package, search for more..

Less than QR 4,000 in a month would not be worth the pain of leaving home, don't convert this to peso, coz you will be spending rials here.

All the best!

the offer is very low, don't take it/no deal... if you really want to work in Qatar try to apply in govt hospital, their salary offer is 2-3 times higher that what is being offered to you...

Qatar cost of living is very, higher that Dubai especially housing & food, you will suffer if you will accept that offer...

You violated Point no:13 of Terms & Conditions...,....

Ghazals...They don't even give good health care also....Very worst in Qatar..They dont even touch you for check up... They know only which costly medicines are covered under insurance to prescribe.

By seeing this offer, its very much understandable to anyone that they are very poor pay masters..

I think they brought all worst doctor for cheaper rate...

While the non-Filipinos at QL came in with their piece of advice in ENGLISH to help out a Filipino so that all readers could benefit from the information being provided, ALL threads so far posted by the Filipinos are in their own language so that others could not understand. It is indeed a very sad outlook of the world when one is living in a multicultural and multinational environment. Such simple actions send a message that the Filipinos want to live in their own world and not allow others to enter and share even in small matters like this one. It is indeed very sad!

Basic Salary & OT.......QR 1,460 + 410 + 200 = 24,840 PHP, not bad if u are in the Philippines.

Housing allowance.....QR 700 = only as good as Bed spacer here. Swerte ka pa kung may makuha kang pang 2 otherwise 4 kayo sa isang room....

Transport allowance....QR 200 = Kung taga welcome rotonda ka at pupunta ka ng baclaran ang allowance mo eh sapat lang hangang quiapo. you have to locate a nearby boarding house para makatipid. Kaso hirap pag tag-init.

Food allowance....QR 300 = Grabe that means QR10 per day ka lang..anu yan fishballs lang sa kanto..

Pagisipan mong mabuti kabayan. oo masarap sa abroad pero hinde lahat swerte mas madame pa den ang sobrang nagtitiis. kung maganda na kalagayan mo dyan mas mainam magtiis sa pinas na kasama mo mahal mo sa buhay kesa nagtitiis sa malayo na magisa. good luck!!!

Sa palagay ko po, hindi po enough yun. Specially kung may long term plan ka of bringing your family here in Qatar. Besides po, tumataas na ang mga basic commodities dito sa qatar. Yung mga breakdown po ng allowances na naka state for your accomodation and tansportation ay hindi po sapat. Don't settle at this po, because you deserve something better.

Nagmamalasakit lang po ako. Kung gusto nyo po talaga dito sa Qatar, Try nyo po mag apply sa government hospitals such as Hamad Hospital, nag nago-offer ng mas magandang salary package. Tnk u po and God bless!

Hello Japoy, in my opinion it's a "No Deal" - for a registered nurse you could get a much better offer other than that. That's way too low an offer for a nurse. If that may be negotiable try to ask for basic of at least Qr. 3,500/Housing Qr. 1,500/Transportation Qr. 1,000

The 700 and 200 housing and transportation they are offering is not really fair for a cost living, most especially the 200 transportation it's a big no no, it has to be at least 1,000

Sobrang baba ng offer na yan :( ....yet still yes it depends on you....like jazz said pagtyagaan for stepping stone, however if you would consider that make sure you have the option for an issuance of NOC from them - you would need that should you decide to change work later.

Best of luck :)
