well i just talked to the guy today they got most everyone hired as of now from stealing away some guys from CSA. although I can hook ya up with KBR www.kbrjobs.com they are looking to hire bout 6-7 thousand people. most jobs start at bout 75-80k on up. How it works is you put in your resume for whatever job you want and wait a day and call one of the recruiters in Houston. After they review your qualifications for the job they will call you with a plane confirmation number for your flight. A bus meets you and about 1000 others who arrive each week and put you up in somthing like a Clarion or Hilton or Wyndham Suites. You go through a week of orientation and then wait for your passport to arrive if you dont have one and wait for your background check and airline flight. They not only have jobs in Iraq but also in Kuwait, Djibouti, Uzbekistan, afganistan and one starting soon in Hati, Panama, and Australia. You typicaly will be there for 3 weeks depending on if you pass your background check and psyc test. then if you are off to Iraq or Kuwait you hop a flight either Air France or KLM to usualy first Dubai United Arab Emerates and then to Kuwait or sometimes to Oman. If you goto Kuwait first even if your ultimate destination is Iraq you typicaly will be putt up in one of the Resorts that they have rented here while you get the rest of your vaccinations, payroll and more orientation classes depending on what job you will be doing.

The three weeks typicaly spent in orientation is not paid. If you are hired your pay starts the day you leave on the plane to go overseas.

While in Houston they will provide all your transportation lodging and food. After you arrive overseas most everythiong is taken care of for you except your job. THings like meals, laundry, healthcare etc will be provided at no cost. They have an excellent healthcare plan that is I think about 200 a month for your family and you can use whatever doctor wherever you want and they will pay 80%. This includes if you are in Mexico, or any other country in the world.

If you goto Iraq and your job dosent require you to leave the camp you will not leave the camp. You get r&r every 4 months to anywhere you choose and they pay 800 of the airfare and five you 10 days pay at 80 hours a week.

You typicaly work 7 days a week at least 80 hours a week. they big money comes with the extra hours of overtime.

They are looking for everything from carpenters to truckdrivers to exterminators (vector control) just let your fingers do the walking.

message me privatly and ill give you the recruiters phone number if you are interested.

I'm guessing that all the hours over 40 are OT , the base is about 80 G's and the big money is in the OT.

No. If you want to shoot folks, you have to be on a DoS security contract.

The pay certianly sounds good. It would quickly clear up alot of my problems. I don't care what the "rules" say, I'll bet these guys are heavily armed. I would be! If I could talk my current employer into giving me six moths to a year off, I would seriously consider it.
