You guys do know that Boeing is begging for mechanics in Charleston? No 787 experience required.

25 to 30 dollars an hour. 400 hundred a week per diem if you live far enough away. Unlimited overtime.

That's 125k a year without putting up with all of the middle east nonsense.

Google JSFirm

Then click on job in South Carolina.

If you have any questions. Just add Google mail to my screen name.

I can assure you that with decades in the Middle East I can say that the UAE and this company have the most problems. They know that you get in to debt to get settled in then they take advantage and offer you a lower package in renewal. You have to take it because there is no option.

I have never worked for them nor will i ever consider it. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. People who usually are not satisfied are Brits and Americans because they are used to be being treated properly and expect a certain degree of professional courtesy. Other nationalities where the option of going home is not really an option love it. These countries include other Arab countries and countries which are referred to as TCNs.

PS To all those who said during the layoffs that all companies do this this is true. But they do not then rehire people for the same slots straight after the redundancies.

To all who plan taking family with you, remember, the salary they offer you includes your housing and transportation alllowance. (a $105K offer=about $58K salary + "potential" annual bonus up to 3 months salary ). Plan accordingly

Very wise words 462-4 I think you are being generous as with rents going up the amount could be less.
