jjamesbarnes in Jacksonville, Florida said: How many hours per day is the training? My wife suggested me driving up there to have some transportation and her flying up the last couple of days then she would drive it home. She'll be coming up toward the end of training regardless. I really have no idea at this point what to expect in GV. When should we see our first pay check?

Hello, Mr. Barnes,
I'm Edward Mcgowan please email me I would like to chat with you.

jjamesbarnes in Jacksonville, Florida said: Great information JD. Fluor said to bring sheets, blanket and a pillow is that necessary? Can you recomend some work boots?

Sheets just to cover the matress is good, they give a sleeping back, so theres your blanket. I have no pillow, I use my coat rolled up as a pillow. You dont need steel toe, some guys have the military boots from swat or converse. I'm working on getting some.

I read that once your in Afghanistan it takes about two weeks to get your FOB. What do you do during that time period are you working or going through more training?

Gone Fishing in Forsyth, Georgia said: Yea, I've been around awhile, over here, over there since 04. Probably got another year left in me, then I am going to the house.

A "technician" is mainly just a job classification. You have technicians, specialist, supervisors, and managers, in that order. Some jobs classify them a little different, but for the most part they use that type of scale.

Wow...04? Good stuff.

Ahhh okay thank you. So my friend who is a project specialist is making much more than I am...

JD_txstyle in Houston, Texas said: You can send your gorilla box on wheels ahead of you. You just have to time it right. The only problem is that you dont know what FOB you are going until you are in country in BAF, and its subject to change, depending on Fluor's need. So if I where you pack light, because you will be in a transition tent (50 to 100 man tent or b-hut, sometimes no footlockers ) once you arrive in country for about 2 weeks. Wait until you know where you going to be station at and then ask your wife to send you gorilla box. The more things you got the harder it is to keep track of it and keep it from being stolen in the transition tent.

JD, do you have an email that I can send you other questions? If you arent comfortable, please email me at LouTablante@gmail.com

You train for the job you are doing. You dont actually train for the job in SC.

A continuation of hurry up and wait is what you will do in that time frame trying to get to your fob.

You'll have a meeting 2 or 3 times a day just to check in and get any flight info/ briefing on available bed space for your fob. Thats been the extent of what you do while waiting to get to your fob unless it changed recently.

I just recently returned to the US after working and living in Kuwait for over 6 years. I worked with Stanley and ITT as well as the Kuwaiti sponsor company of Stanley and ITT. I find it extremely hard to find any jobs. My experience is mostly administration and dealing with the local market as I speak Arabic. I have worked in the warehouses and as a production control clerk. I think my resume goes into a black hole when I apply online for jobs. Can anyone give me some advice on how to find positions in Kuwait?

I also applied online with the top four Logcap contractors for the past 4 months with no luck and I am looking for a way to get noticed. 11 Years of Logcap experience in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. Looking for Logcpap 4 employment within Procurement, Logistics or Materials. Highly qualified with 3 years of University credits in Business Management. Comment to anyone who has not been wih Logcap before: I would like to let you know that this forum is a great source of Logcap information and found that almost all of the information was spot on. Great posts!

Mdennis, just make sure to keep your resume centric on the job you are applying for. Make sure your qualities relating to the job you are applying for stand out. Keep applying is all I can suggest, it took me over a year before KBR called me up, then 2 months later the base I was assigned to transitioned and I now work for ITT.

Keep checking for jobs on ITT's website, there are administrative jobs and then there are also jobs in the SSA which would fall under your warehouse work. Job titles for SSA are warehouseman/forklift operator, Supply Clerk, Supply Technician, Supply Lead, Supply Technician. Good luck!

Thanks Jason. I've been trying for 4 years and nothing. If I do get a response there is never any follow-up. I've applied for ITT as they have over 200 jobs and I used to work for them but nothing. I keep trying, applying for jobs is more like a hobby now to pass time.

Thanks! He has been gone for nearly 2 weeks and we already miss him terribly. My boys are adjusting. Could be just a coincidence but my two boys who never really get in trouble at school both had trouble this week. One suspended from his after school program for throwing rocks and one suspended from the bus for 3 days for misbehaving! Seriously this has not been a good week. We got it all together and I think they know how I will handle things from now on.

It must be great knowing your husband is on his way home. I am sure your kids miss him as well.

Enjoy your R&R!

Oh and I will definitely answer any questions anyone has regarding the process, training, job, etc. Let me know what you want to know and hopefully I can help. The help of everyone on this forum definitely made this process a little less intimidating.

Once the SF-85 has closed and you are waiting for the adjudication - how long did you have to wait before that was completed?

Bruce does a good job with a resume, but to be honest I haven't seen the first Irish person in theater working for any of these contractors. Most of the food service employees are either Balkan or Philippine with the occasional American. There is a bunch of guys from the UK working as electricians.

Put together a damn good resume and post for the job online. There is no inside scoop, you have to go online and post. While your at it, post for jobs with KBR, ITT, and DynCorp.

I've meet some good Irish electricians in BAF, with that said Fluor is hiring licensed UK sparkies to join the ATI Electrical Team, and maintenance. I also meet a Scotish carpenter in Salerno where I'm currently stationed. The trades are strongly needed IN-THEATER.

I currently have a resume put together by Bruce Diggs, very happy with it. I am a Program Manager, but looking to get out of Iraq...drying up here, but I've had a LOT of positive feedback as a result of his resume. I had one recruiter tell me, it's one of the most professional, best resumes she's come across. For $75 bucks, hell of a deal...and btw, I have no affiliation with Bruce, just believe he produces a quality product. My only complaint, which I deleted out one portion...it was a bit "wordy" in the middle, felt recruiters would get bored reading a lot of paragraph type info. Good luck!!

My husband got a call on Dec 3, 1 day after he sent his resume to Fluor. He was set up within a week to do medical and dental. All of his paperwork (SF86), medical and dental, fingerprints, etc. was all done by the first week of January. The holidays slowed things down a bit. Once his SF86 was actually sent, he was called about 4 days later and asked when he wanted to go to GV. He gave his employer 2 weeks notice and flew to GV on Jan 29. He started training on Sunday, Jan 30 and flew out yesterday, Feb 10 to Dubai. He heard he will be in Dubai for 1-2 days and then on to Afghanistan.

whats the reasoning behind some electricians being given an sf86 rather than the 85p? Does it depend on where they intend on sending you? I've have been looking through the KBR thread and it seems pretty consistant that people with 85p are about 35 days from filing to being being issued their CAC. Seems the 86 got him through a month sooner.

I dont know. Ive got to assume things work at reasonably the same speed. My SF85p was submitted to OPM on Jan. 20th. I signed my offer mid Dec. and they were very quick to get things done. I had med/dent, finger prints, all done within about a week of signing my offer. My 85p was the big hold up for me. I had a difficult time getting it through the first screening level of CoE before they accepted it Jan 20. Now its just a matter of waiting. Im expecting to hear something fairly soon.

Yes my husband put his resume online with Fluor and got a call 3 days later. He has completed medical, dental, and he had previous military clearance that was accepted so he didn't have to do the sf85 or fingerprints. I'm guessing it was already in the system. He hasn't heard anything for a day or two and we were just wondering what the turn around time was. Thanks for the info, I appreciate it.

Try Supreme Group. They are a UK contractor that does basically what KBR and the rest do, just on NATO sites. Nearly impossible for an American to get on with them, but I hear they pay well and treat their people good.
