How common is this?
I have not heard of this, did not happen to me.

So, when you get the draft offer, look at your grade and the amount of allowances you will get within that big dollar figure. They did not ask my age during the interview. C-17 program is base near Dubai, so you can look for a place there and it is cheaper there. So, you can save money with your housing allowance. That is a good thing. Okay! hope that helps some. If I can help with more info let me know. I have been here one month now. I finally have my UAE ID card, Drivers License and bank account is ready for the money to pour in! ha ha. I have a rental car and will stay in the hotel after the company stops paying for it. Will stay here for two weeks till I move into a hotel apartment near by at the Staybridge. They gave me a corporate rate. So, if you go online to check the prices, they will be out of this world. It is still high but within my short term realm. Got to get the wife here before I can choose a place to live, she is incharge of that department and the 90 day probation thing is hanging over my head too. Everyone that comes here is a different position and the 90 day thing affects them different that me. Okay! take care.

Good! Please look over all the past posts here for more info. I will be here if you need anymore info! What is the job situation like there? If not good, this looks pretty good. The unknown is tough to do, but this place (besides the humidity and heat for 8 months) is very western orientated and you will like here here I think. It is a job and tax-free money and think it would be hard to find anything comparable there. Just give it a try for three months then make plans to stay and bring the family over then. See ya.
Steve

A dude mentions it on page 2 of this thread, I know the whole story is not there on that one. I've read articles of it happening in other industries mainly construction.

Default Education assistant

Does any one know how much education/schooling assistant is provided in AMMROC (probably J grade or above). Is it on reimbursment basis or comes along salary ?

When it was discussed with me before I opted to leave family behind for first year because I didn't want to pull them out of school in middle of year, they told me 30000 AED. I was told that they would pay that up front to the school. If it costs more than the 30k, you most pay it up front to school. If it costs less than 30k, company keeps the change. If any one else has different info please share.

If you bring over families, the commute to all ain is bit less then dubai to get to dhafra and the Western based schools are much lower. A number of contractors do this.

And you get the added benefit of avoiding the highway between Dxb and dhafra.

Just wondering if I could get some help from you guys. I'm currently waiting on my security clearance (3 weeks, which is apparently not too bad after reading some other posts). I've been offered a position for the C-17 program (avionics) and I have a couple questions -

1. I was wondering what location they are working out of? My recruiter told me they are working out of Abu Dhabi International, but my sources in Qatar (Boeing Field Rep) says they are working out of Minhad. Are there 2 locations? I tend to lead towards my Boeing guy to be more accurate.

2. I also have a full sleeve of tattoos on my left arm and I was wondering if some of the people that are already in location can give any advice on how that will go over or if I will have to cover my arm, etc.
