DynCorp hired someone to be my supervisor who wasn't qualified to be my subordinate. DynCorp is quite obviously more concerned with filling billable positions than the quality of those in the positions.
During my experience with DynCorp I was able to advance from being a Logistics Coordinator to Logistics Foreman. I was able to learn better leadership skills to schedule, train and maintain missions with a diversified environment of people. Many of the employees I worked with were from Bosnia, Macedonia, Hungary, India, Sri Lanka and America.
The company won a contract and they had staff that wasn't able to do their job correctly. I did not like the work environment and coworkers. Management is very rude and do not care about their employees.
Good company to fine tune your aviation knowledge but work / life balance does not exist. Work environment can be toxic at times, but a good company to use as a stepping stone. Salary is excellent but be prepared to work 80+ hour weeks.
Work was very easy. The Kuwaitis were very friendly. The pay could be better. The temporary housing could be better as well. Medical, dental, and vision benefits would have been nice to have living in a foreign land such as Kuwait
tax free pay after completing one year
have to wait to complete one year to take vacation in US
Stressful, Management loves to throw workers under a bus and need the help from other countries to fulfill their requirement for having terrible management. The company is more worried about what is worn to work than its actual maintenance for service members aircraft. The company itself is actually good. But the Dyn aviation is nothing more than a Hoax!
Working for DynCorp wasn't bad. I would say the pay was really good; however, i had to pay for an apt, car rental, fuel and food while in Kuwait. The one thing i hated most was the dangerous drive to work.
I am an overseas contractor who works 12 hours a day 5-6 days a week. My job has a high personnel turnover due to long hours and low pay.
The work load at times can be very heavy but there is days that it can be relaxing.
DynCorp has a really management on the lower end, very professional and tight knit work environments. Compensation was really good. Micro management was hardly existent. Easy to do good work with minimal drama.
Be well mannered with any staff to meet before or after the interview.I feeling particularly nervous, remind myself that the very worst thing that could happen
Give a firm handshake to interviewer(s) before and after the session. Once i seated, sit naturally without slouching in my chair or leaning on the desk. Throughout the interview, remember to smile frequently and retain eye contact.
