    WE The People!

    Are not the Few The Proud , and not Every Job Is An Adventure! And I cannot Be All That I Can Be, getting shot at going from Base to Base or Installation to Installation! especially without being armed, but of course somebody would get paranoid and start shooting for some dumb move or something like that nature. and if you figure out 80 k a year, thats not much money after taxes! and yes everyone there pays taxes , the contention that nobody does is a flat out lie, like the bush admin! we are ther for no good reason and my safety nor my country is at risk from iraq, from iran, and the saudi's, and al-queida but not iraq! and i dont want to be part of imposing my lifestyle and beliefs upon another country that doesnt want U.S. There! these people been like this for years due to their beliefs and prejudices, and we cannot change it! from day one, and no amount of refrigeration will put humpty dumpty back togeather again-nor are deficit ,nor the long-term lasting effects of these bills your children will have to foot!

    maam i would be very proud to apply for your job. having been in the sandbox not once but 2 times with the distinct possibility of going over again real soon makes it very hard for me to do. and for all of you out there whining that it aint enough money. i really should give you a look at my last check for the last time i was there. proudly serving the usaf as a air conditioning tech. the guys over there are over worked under paid but proud to serve.

    WHINING?

    Not whining about the paycheck. From all accounts the money to be made is pretty good. Just squeeling about losing our heads...if you know what I mean.
    If a day went by without a problem - there'ld be a problem.

We are hiring from 500-700 people per week (HVAC Technicians, Painters, Equipment Operators, Truck Drivers, Carpenters, and many more) who get an average salary in the range of $82K/year as well as a TAX exemption for working out-of-country (if they maintain their contract condition of 12 months or work outside the US for 330 days). Each of our contractors get two 10-day paid R&R’s every 4 months with airfare allowance of up to $860 and 2 weeks R&R in the 12th month with a chance to end or renew their contract.

    Our contractors typically work 7x12 hour days on a 1 year open-ended contract – which means either party can end the contract at anytime without penalty.

    If you are interested, please go to our Careers Website: http://www.kbrjobs.com and apply online to REQ #67894 THEN contact me via email or phone and let me know you applied. I will try to get back to you within a day!

    if you were in the union in Chicagoland area at $33.00/hr this is what you'd make here.........
    40 hrs straight time.................$1320.00
    28 hrs time + half...................$1386.00
    16 hrs of double time................$1056.00

    total for week.......................$3762.00

    now........$82,000 divided by $3762.00=
    21.80 weeks or 5 months (May).

    now........$3762/week X 47 weeks (don't forget R&R)=
    $176,814.00/year.

    now, if you were crazy enough to do those hours (for any wage) don't forget..EVERY DAY IS MONDAY.


    i think they call this "BLOOD MONEY"

    It is far from blood money. what you do over there is support the many fine men and women who have pledged to make the ultimate sacrafice for there country. you help give them some creature comforts in a place that is worst then the worst nightmare you ever had. Also it is not about the money. it is about patritisom even if you do not believe in the cause.

    mongo....either you or i are way off target. i'm under the impression that these jobs are for the re-building of Iraq. not for the troops. i assume they have their own techs. i think this is like regular work that we are accustomed to. trade-wise that is. only this job is located in SATAN'S A$$HOLE (Iraq). this has nothing to do with patriotism. this is about $$$$$$$$$$$ and only about $$$$$$$$.
