    Contract Tower ATC Openings Anywhere!!

    I wonder if its because I am trying to upload from overseas. The system keeps giving me an unexpected error when I want to view previously submitted resumes or make updates.

    Iraq ATC

    I believe KBR is payine the same in Afghan what there paying us in Iraq 5000 base with 75% uplift on the first 40 hours. The only reason there getting paid less than us is because per the AFCAP contract they can only work 60hrS per week. Iraq works 72hrs per week cause is under the LOGCAP contract

    There is no budget crisis unless your talking about the fact they have not had a budget to work off of for over two years.

    Iraq ATC

    KBR just took over in Afghan so how can you make such a broad brush statement that KBR does not staff them adequately? Does that not mean that ITT was not staffing them adequately to begin with before KBR took over?

    Will I ever get the time of day with Serco!!!

    Thank you for the insite gentlemen, I just wanted a concensus on what i was already thinking. I have three CTO's and most of my experience I can say with GA traffic I have gotten in the last yr where I am at in Iraq. MOST Army controllers only get helo experience and its true the Army says...

    Will I ever get the time of day with Serco!!!

    Don't get me wrong I am not just assuming I can walk into anywhere. I assumed I was more marketable from a certain point of view because I was in the area and would not have to relocate. It thanks for your advice but it still does not answer my other concern on whether there is a preference for...

    Will I ever get the time of day with Serco!!!

    I know I am going to probably get flamed for this but just had to get the average responses from those in the know. Does SERCO have something against Army Controllers or is there just known stigma against Army and prior Army controllers. I live in California and I have two CTO's now on my third...

    Just having these two things is not a sure thing to getting hired. I have been trying to get with Serco for a while in my state with no luck. Probably location but I had two CTO's when I was trying to get with them now I have 3. We will see what happens.

    KBR flying me to texas tomorrow

    Eman1193, That calculation is correct but you also have to take into account the R&R's so if you took now vacation you would get the 125.

    KBR flying me to texas tomorrow

    MikeATC, I believe they being other ATC contractors found the same loop hole KBR and DynCorp have used. Midwest and I believe WCG pay uplift on all hours worked, thats why the work schedule is so short with them and your getting paid so much more than the other contractors.

    KBR flying me to texas tomorrow

    KBR does not pay any overtime. That recruiter is totally lying to you. Its all straight time with the uplift only going to the first 40 hours of work. Technically by the contract all contractors are suppose to pay uplift on all hours worked but KBR found a loop hole in the contract hence why you...

    The end of overseas contract work?

    If your company gave you that kind of contract then its better than most. I have only worked for two contract companies and they never tell you when the contract is up and always have you sign a one yr contract. So in the end it is down to the kind of deal you get. Most don;t give the kind of...

    Any help getting overseas employment

    I dont think your info is accurate but I could be wrong. KBR is about to stand up another tower facility in Iraq. That is why there are more openings in Iraq. I can't tell you anything about Afghan though.
