Default Who here still working for AMMROC?

Yes, Bounty Hunter, divingator, and others on the board, please tell, are you still with them or have you too moved on? Nothing negative either way, just trying to get my head wrapped around all this.

Thanks

Another thing to be aware of with AMMROC. They do not ask for your age during the hiring process. They do not like to employ or retain
people over 60, therefore, you can sell everything and move half way across the world for no more than 2 years. If you turn 60 during your contract, they will not offer you a new contract. But they won't tell you this. When it comes time to start re-negotiating (that's a joke) your contract, they will wait until the last minute that they will not renew your contract leaving you 1 1/2 - 2 months to sell everything and get ready to leave.

If you're at a hiring event in the states, (I can't speak for any other country), it would be illegal to ask a persons age or date of birth but I hear what you're saying. Pretty shady not to start contract renewal earlier so people can adjust. Thanks for the info.

my last post was deleted but I quit due to multiple contact violations. I am a 462btw. I wish I could give you good news but I cant think of much. I got no bonus and no moving in allowance, as promised. Also they are implementing a 48 hour work week for the same pay. You will go 5-10$k in debt getting settled in, and that's just your house and a rental car. You have family? Double that.
And the biggest joke...they wont let you drive on base so you have to catch the bus. It adds 1-2 hours a day with no comp. They have a bad attitude and have a long way to go to be world class.

I m not sure if the bonus are stated in the contract, but the moving/settling allowance entittlement shall be paid base on the salary scale.

Man some people complain to much.

Move in allowances were authorized for anyone who signed their offer letter AFTER Oct 2012. I didn't get it because I signed in August but it really isn't that large of an amount so I'm not hurt. If you are suppose to get it then contact Tawasul, problem solved.

There is a guy in my shop that received his bonus and was very happy with the figure. I can't state how much as he can't tell anyone but he got it. If you have been here a year contact Tawasul, problem solved.

I personally like the bus idea as most of my gas is wasted on base thanks to the constant stop and go from the roundabouts and speed bumps. I get home the same time as I did when I drove on base, so if you have 2 hours tacked on to your day then you need to rethink the way you are doing things.

Good news: It seems that AMMROC is hiring again, we have several people from base traveling to the states soon to conduct interviews and these people are much more knowledgeable about the ins and outs of AMMROC as well as the airframes so the quality of people should be higher and should keep from having a repeat of the situation several months ago.

Wow, that's NOT good news to hear. So, this 48 hour work week deal? They leave the contract open to the number of hours per week or is there a cap? Anything to prevent them from keep doing this? 1-2 hour bus ride just to get on and off base? WTF? What other contract issues did you run into if I might ask?
