Re: Automatically mapping a job submitted by a particular user to a specific hadoop map-reduce queue
the current capacity scheduler guarantees that which users can submit jobs
to which queue and other related features.
More of which you can read at

but on the hive side, unless you set mapred.job.queue.name on the hive cli,
they will be submitted to default job queue.

So basically what you would like to do is create user, associate it with a
queue on scheduler and ask the user to modify its queue on local hiverc

I am not sure if this can be part of hive's metastore. Because one user can
be allowed to submit the job to multiple queues and then best way to handle
it is via setting the property each time you open the session or via hiverc
