Translator/Interpreter (Former Employee) – Palestine, Ramallah – November 10, 2017
It was a vital environment and I was surrounded by multiple international expertise in different domains. My tasks were to translate from English to Arabic and vise versa, but I also learnt about logistics, military life, criminal justice and other interesting domains one would never imagine knowing about at an early age. The culture is a multicultural environment and very healthy . It promotes good conduct, boost motivation and enrich knowledge and skills. The hardest part was at the beginning due to the lack of prior experience in working in a multicultural workplace so I had to pull myself out and take the extra effort to integrate myself for a better learning and development.
Worked with the Quality Lead and Managers to audit different department daily. Attend weekly conference calls and set schedule with Supervisors the complete audits for the day. Send out a day report to the manager at the end of the day.
lead mechanic for POWER GENERATION (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 30, 2017
If you can take the heat than oconus is the best place to work, usually a work work day falls between 9-12 hour work days monday thru sundays. Most of the times you have a crew to work for you while you supervise. But you always oversea all the work to be done while working with your crew.
Realize trabajos de supervision del personal local y también también trabajé cómo técnico de fase e inspecciones especiales. La compañía siempre apoya al personal tanto en los trabajos como en lo personal
Safety Officer (Former Employee) – Unlisted – October 23, 2017
My experience with DynCorp International (overseas) was "ok". The money was great. The accommodations were good. Unfortunately, the leadership on-site (PM and DPM) had a reputation of being untrustworthy and conniving. Although they pitched a different story to corporate, they were one of the primary reason for reduced retention rates.
MESSAGE TO CORPORATE: PM and DPM positions should be scrutinized more carefully. Preferably, choosing people who have actual field experience and maybe former military officers. The two I worked for, had NO business running that operation.
Lead Aerospace Ground Equipment Technician (Current Employee) – Qatar – October 23, 2017
Not enough people for the job. Supervisor does not micromanage. Continue learning about my job. The hardest part about my job is the language barrier with the OCN's, really not a big deal. For the most part they know what needs to get done.
Systems Deployment Specialist (Former Employee) – Springfield, VA – October 22, 2017
Pros Work/life balance was good with interesting work given and great co-workers who are team-players.
Cons Negative, narrow-minded management with certain project managers at the top who are micro-managing. Also, there are low salaries being offered with absolutely no room for growth. There may have been some racial-profiling there as well.
Advice to Management Treat all employees fairly if you want to retain good talent, instead of just favoring the favorite ones.
Great team (with the exception of management and senior employees), flexible schedules
Bad management, micromanagement, low pay, unfair treatment of emplloyees
