AMMROC is garbage. What they have done is bring people in with an open ended contract. What most are thinking is that it's open so I don't have to worry about contract negotiations and can just keep working. What this in fact has done is give this company the ability to release you without cause. In other words, they can let you go for any reason they see fit, such as redundancy. If you look at the people they are keeping, other than the Americans, it's pretty sad. The locals are exempt and seem to be the majority of the problems. They can't have their probation extended and to fire one of them takes no less than 15 letters to management. This happened to a local in HR. Most locals refuse to follow the rules like wearing the proper shoes to work to also include coming to work on time and leaving work early. There are 2 HR Senior Supervisors on a base that work on average of 20 hours per week. There is a Senior Supervisor supervisor on the F-16 platform that hasn't had a job of responsibility in over a year but has no problem showing up to walk around in his yellow corvette. What's going to happen is that those that are hired in the future will accept lower pay and treatment or AMMROC will in fact be a low level company that has a bad reputation and even worse leadership. As an EXPAT, you have no protection when it comes to AMMROC and working for them.

I left AMMROC for the exact same thing. Breach of contract. I left 150k a year job because of what was agreed in my offer letter. After six months and when finally got my contract, everything was changed. What was offered in the offer letter and what my contract said was two different things. The AMMROC way.

Now if you look at my past post, I warned against this awhile back. I knew things were bad and getting worse, but it wasn't until I received a email from a friend who was laid off did I know about the layoffs.

The discrimination was happening all along. It has always been there but people choose to ignore it. And collect a measly check.

Like is previously said, I had other options. Unlike most people there that are fresh from the Air Force or Army...(either US or RAF) my reputation is well known in certain circles of aviation.

Now, when I was posting there were so many nay sayers who said I was wrong and that it was a great place. That I had a grudge. In truth, no I didn't. But than again this was not my first rodeo. I seen the writing on the wall, as soon as the UAE AF didn't allow the Jordanians on the F16's and when they greatly underestimated certain man power requirements. Where are all these nay sayers now?

I was part of the "Redundancy" in Aug. Funny thing is they had to move somebody into the position that I held. Redundancy was just an excuse to get rid of me.
I was promoted to a higher position, had a copy of the paperwork that was submitted. Some how it never made it to HQ or they didn't have a record of it even though I produced this numerous times to base and HQ HR. When I was let go I did not get the back pay for the promotion. This company is full of empty and broken promises. When it comes time to renegotiate a new contract you will be offered a lower salary.
If you do decide to take a job with this company DO NOT try to prove them (locals) wrong even though they do not know what they are talking about and you have references to prove them wrong. It can lead to your dismissal.
If they want to be a "World Class Organization" They need to change their way of thinking or they will not be able to maintain "World Class" personnel.
Read the Core Values for this company. They do not follow what they claim to hold true.

You may want to read from page 175 on to get an idea of what's going on.

Wow, the board has gone very quiet. That is too bad. A lot of good info here from both sides.

Anyone have any good links to jobs in UAE for aviation or otherwise? I have all the typical ones (monster, careerbuilder, etc.) I left DynCorp about a year ago but not much luck picking up anything in AFG since they're winding down.

Thanks

So, for you guys who are actually still in AMMROC, things appeared pretty bad just recently. At least from the outside looking in. Anyone on site have any good news? Anything recent or factual we should know? Any improvements or word from the top you want to share?
