M.H.E. Manager at Kuwait Naval Base (Former Employee) - Kuwait city
A typical day at Dyn Corp was long and hot because of the dessert heat and the 12 hour shifts 7 days a week. I leaned to work very smartly within extreme heat and made sure that I as well as My workers stayed hydrated throughout the day. I managed many men from different countries such as India, Pakistan, US, and UK. The hardest part of the job was the heat. I enjoyed the experience of seeing other cultures and people from different walks of life.

Operations and Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) - Kuwait City, Kuwait
A typical 10 hour day which sometimes took me flying from one city in Iraq to another to identify issues with supplies forwarded from Qatar to Kuwait to various locations in Iraq. Multi National cultures and US Military combinations were one of the tasks dealt with on a daily basis. Very stressful at times while being a civilian and many times non escorted by US military due to locations of my travel, I would go or drive tho some locations alone.
Pros
Free flights throughout Iraq, Kuwait and Qatar
Cons
Becoming a soft target while in a combat zone as a civilian
