As i completed my contract period and moved to other company still missing my days worked with DynCorp International At Kuwait,
If i get any opening im ready to join Again to work its a great experiences.
I gained a lot of experience at KBR
KBR away from HQ offered a great compensation but did not feel as a secure opportunity.
Slow to no advancement
Despite the long hours, the time was enjoyable and went fast because of the amount of work.
Management within the department was unprofessional.
I was Convoy Commander and later became Supervisor of Transportation Department for the Collation of Armies from Americas Allies in support of the war in Iraq. Area of operation was Baghdad South to Kuwait.
Pros would be the thrill of every succesful Mission completed
Responsible for insuring warehouse and property control function. Documented and controlled receipts, condition and issuance of all goods, including construction materials, small tools, consumables, plant materials and equipment for facility maintenance and operations. Schedule pick-up and drop-off for security. Skilled in all warehouse operations. Handling and monitor goods and shipment.
12 hours a day, some days you work hard some you don't
The main thing is that is out of the states and far from home, if your okay with that then you will fit right in.
Some bosses are good and some are not, but that is everywhere your going to go.
I have had the privilege and honor to be working with some great Veterans and civilians within KBR community in Kuwait and IRAQ. It has been my experience, that if you work hard and don't cause any problems and or get into any arguments, everything will be just fine. I love my job, and have great respect for the people that I work with and for. My supervisor is absolutely fair in making all decisions.
I took this job thinking that it was the best avenue for my family and me. The first year of working wasn't bad, but it was as if I had went from a structured life in the military to a holding group of adult children that knew nothing more than that of adultery and ignorance. Most were prior military, and that's a bit shocking because the ones that were in leadership positions didn't seem to know or care what they were doing...as long as they were getting paid. This company didn't do very good background checks or verify hiring information for numerous people. They covered up a lot of mistakes and wasted a lot of money. They had so many policies in place and were only worried that people knew what the policies were, not that they followed them. It would be hypocritical if they did hold people to the policies, because the leadership themselves weren't doing it. This is a major business that takes tax payers dollars from the government and does the minimum only to spread their company as far as possible across the globe. They break international laws and get the government to pay for their mistakes.
It's a place where non-qualified individuals can get a job
Lack of professionalism, lack of direction at the working level, too many unknowns
It was a great working experience with KBR during almost 5years in Kuwait I have seen Ups & Down of my Career in KBR but still I would love to work with KBR...
When we had a job to done then we give our 100 % to complete the task.
we also use get rewards like, our management arrange almost party type lunch with KFC & Cold Drink ETC.
We have also receive certificates of appreciation.
Enjoyed the opportunity to work overseas. However, you will miss being home in the USA. I enjoyed the diversity and inclusion of working with Foreign Nationals. The diversity increased the strength of teams.
