    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

Kitchen equipment, electrical, facilities. I have even ran the maintenance department in two big hotels doing exactly what they listed on their site.

    Hey guys,

    In the last month I have been flooded with resumes and applications for this position. If I or my office manager did not get back to you I am truly sorry (I do not operate like that) but I just filled two positions for technicians I had for Iraq. They leave the end of this month.
    I will keep your resumes on file for future openings.
    I am working now on a UN job in Chad and Costa Rica.

    would love to go back to the middle-east

    I know it sounds crazy.... I loved it in Afghanistan. The weather and living conditions were a challenge at times. Had a great time working on military hvac systems. While watching the movie " Kingdom " hearing the call to prayer brought back alot of memories.... would love to go back !!!

    Lety us know when the dust settles on that one, please. I don't want to go over there and have the company lose its contract a month later.

    Hey ARPA, is Costa Rica located next to the Papa Rica?

    I have met quite a few Canucks over here. Not sure if the pay is different or not but if you have some experience they will take you. It doesn't take much in the experience department to qualify.

    The guy that runs the sheet metal shop at Liberty is like 65 to 75 years old. I have worked with guys ranging in age from 20 to 60. Heck, I am almost 40. You do need to be physically able to do the job and withstand the heat. The job is not hard but he heat is brutal. As long as you can pass the physical your fine. They won't let you over here with some problems like diabetes. If you have high blood pressure it must be under control when you go through Houston.
