I was just offered a position with KBR. I am an Army Reserve soldier on TPU status and my unit is giving me static regarding putting me on IRR status, and as anyone who has worked for KBR before knows, getting the paperwork in is definitely time sensitive. Has anyone been in this position before???? If so, any information on working around the issue or at least buying some time would be a lifesaver. Thanx

bluecamel in Doha, Qatar said: the security side of KBR is more logistics than anything.
Dyna Corp will probably hire you in a heart beat, but they are staffing places like Dubai and Kuwait right now and the money is bad. around $55,000 a year.

What are the rates for logistics? Also can you explain the "uplift" that they where talking about earlier.

blue camel in really appreciate all the information that you have been posting it has been very informative. would HR have a direct number perhaps. in was inquiring about a job position in maybe Hr or some sorty of nursing dept. in which they may have. the online website is not exactley specific enough when it comes to the actual duty of that job. also is it very likely that kbr would fire you within the first week even if i perform to my expectations? really appreciate your time.

If you are discharged from the Army for Illegal drug use with a general under honorable conditions discharge. What are the chances you would get a job with KBR?

KBR will not list recruiter phone numbers because they would be swamped with calls.
Iraq is is Cost plus contract. in regular terms it means you have to spend money to make money. occasionally they do large scale cut backs on jobs, just to turn around and spend the money to replace those people they fired.

The natural rate of turn over is 70%+ for in side the wire(camp)workers and 95% for truck drivers, so usually the natural turn over is enough to balance things out.

but remember it is contract work, so you are not Guaranteed anything for job security.

everyone wants to know the pay scale. the easyiest way to look at it is low end about $72,000 high end about $88,000.

from 2003-2006 the money was really high, because of all the hours you worked. on an average you would do 100 hr week. everything is running at 84 hours now.

hey bluecamel,

i was wondering if i am qualified to work for KBR. i have four years active duty in the army (honorable discharge). i have a clean drivers license and clean background check. i also have a bachelor's degree in management. i was wondering if I could get hired for a warehousemen or a trade? i have heard some crazy pay numbers (180,000-250,000). i think that is crap though, so your responses seem more realistic. thanks.

Hi Bluecamel...I must say thank you for all of your informative posts. There is so much information on the internet, but none of it really answers the questions I have re overseas contract opportunities. I'm prior service Marine (admin clerk), and over the past couple of days I've applied for several admin positions with KBR in Iraq & Afghanistan. I know it has become extremely competitive to land a position, but with my military background do you think I should expect a call within a couple of weeks or a month? Thanks for your insight, and BTW... Ooorah!

yes, there is alot of competition for overseas jobs. The military background is a real plus. Contact time depends greatly on the need for that position you applied for. i can tell you this, just because you are not sure if you quilify for a position, don't be afraid to apply.

the more positions you apply for, the greater the chance of a recruiter seeing it and passing it along to the right recruiter. Semper Fi.

First, thank you both bluecamel & markcu01 for the replies. GREAT information!!! You know, over the past couple of days I've applied for 11 positions with KBR I was beginning to think that I was over doing it. With this piece of advice, I'm going to continue to press forward and apply for other positions. Thanks again.

Hi Bluecamel,

I don't have any military experience and I was interested in getting an entry level position in anything in Iraq. I am only 20, i have a high school diploma and about a year working as an assistant office manager. Any advice on how I should go about getting a job in Iraq. Also is the pay the same for Iraq and Afghanistan? My mom is an E-8 in the army and has recently got back from Iraq, but I don't want to let her know of my decision. I have a lot of friends in Iraq and they all tell me KBR and gave me their website. But is there any other way or any other website. I could really use the money for college. Thanks!

Hi BlueCamel

My co-worker just got hired with KBR, and she is scheduled to go to Houston for "processing". She indicated if you make it to Houston, you pretty much have the job. Does that sound true to you? I understand there is a rigorous medical examination. Is the exam a questionaire? Or done by a doctor? What are some immediate disqualifers? I have Hepatitis B, it's not "active" and I am healthy, not on any medications for it or anything. Will they disqualify me for that? I remember reading the initial application and they mentioned something about that.

My husband is currently in Iraq and he just told me about KBR and wanted me to check into contract positions for my brother in law. He currently owns his own excavating company (3 years), but the high gas prices and lack of new construction is killing him. He has extensive experience in directional drilling, underground water/sewer lines, and obviously he can operate all heavy equipment machines (10 years exp.)

My questions are: How long are the contracts for positions like these and what type of salary could he expect? Thank you.

mgparrothead007 in Bagdad

Well I would suggest a couple of companies KBR included. Because they are in the drilling part of oil. At www.KBRjob.com., and www.woodgroup.com., they also pay very well. and alot of hometime. With KBR I'm not totally sure what the pay would be for that. Mainly in Iraq it is more supervisor lead roles, as the Iraqi citizens and Foreign nationals that do all the labor work or 95% of it. Which the pay for that would be around $9,000.00 to $14,000.00 plus a month. And R&R every 120 days at 16 days which to KBR equals 14 days because we lose a day of travel from Dubai, UAE. And back to Dubai, UAE. But it is mostly tax free. Anything under $7,200 approx. is tax free. And pay is monthly. I would say for him to park his equipment or sell it in this day and age they are easily replaceable at local auctions with newer and better equipment, so good luck, Mark

Host said: What are the average starting salaries, bonuses, benefits and travel requirements like at KBR?

What do you like best about working at KBR? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?

Well there are no bonuses for the people who actually work . Except for a $10.00 phone card at Christmas. WOW But the "TIER 1" level management get major salaries and bonuses. $20-$25,000 a month salary plus bonuses anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 a qtr. Yes 4 times a year. And the "TOP 5 KBR of IRAQ" split $12,000,000.00 bonus for 3 months. Not including there Overpaid salaries. But the pay is still good more than what you would make in the US for 2 months. The Travel is very fast paced and not anytime to rest. And dangerous not as bad as in the past. Anyway Good luck. And remember its all about the paycheck. It's mostly tax free. Except for the F.I.C.A. That will be coming out of our next checks in Sept. At $600-$800.00 a month now.

bluecamel in Doha, Qatar said: i really enjoy reading all the speculation about KBR from individual that have never worked for the company. i have been with KBR for just over 4 years. i spent the first 3 years in Iraq (transportation dept) climbed the corporate ladder to upper managemnt and now work with KBR and Shell on the largest construction project in the world.

there are a few contract companies that pay a little more starting out, but the chance for advancement and to make it a career are very slim with those other companies.

I am making almost $165,000 a year and work 8 weeks on 18 days off. I defie anyone to tell me that is not a good job.

There any positions available out there in Doha, Qatar. I have been with KBR for 4 years and need a change. I am in transportation/Logistics. I have just over 10 years experience. I am currently on R&R now and will be back in Iraq by next Sunday or Monday, Thanks, Mark

Mark,

Thank you so much for your information. I will pass it along to my brother in law. He is just struggling right now with owning his company and having to pay out a lot of money a month. He doens't have any employees at this point and he is trying to do it all himself. Again, I really appreciate your information! Have a nice day.

Well it depends on how long ago. The best thing to do is to put in your resume at www.kbrjobs.com., and find out when a recruiter for KBR calls you. Otherwise try and get on with IAP worldwide services. Who does not check anything. But KBR does ask and if you were in the military less than 7 years ago. Then it could be a problem I really don't know. But I would suggest if you use them now not to go over because it is not the place for it. because your life and others around you depend on you having a straight head. Or if you have been off them for good, and you are reformed then go for it. We all make mistakes. And we are all here for many many reasons. But my best of luck to you and good luck and God Speed, Mark

Hey anytime. I know things are hard. When I demobed out of Iraq in April of 2006. We bought a tractor trailer, worst thing ever. We ended up losing over $30,000 in truck and wages. And then more so the truck. And then I left for Iraq again the sunday after Thanksgiving, it was actualy great to be back and still needing more because of the economy. Although when the war is over in Iraq there will be almost 100,000 contractors and workers returning home not all at once but it will also shock the economy. So save save save, Good luck to your brother in law. Your welcome anytime , mark

No just a basic resume. And they paid for our passports in Houston, TX. But if you have one and it doesn't expire soon. That will make your time go faster in Houston, Tx. No cover letter. Unless it has changed. But remember to keep all of your paper work together and never lose anything radio/cell phone while deployed. They have alot of rules but for a reason. And it a CYA thing. But write down whoever calls you and numbers and never ever miss any meetings in Houston, TX . DO not drink while in Houston people just get into trouble and miss stuff or anything. This is a life changing event if you get hired. So please take things like they are gold because who will pay you $8,000.00 or more in the states tax free and let you travel the world wherever you want to go on R&R. I went to Australia in March 2006 for 2 weeks. And I will be going back same time next year just bringing my family on a Australian vacation. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions, Thanks, Mark

Well I lived there for about 6 months now living in the green zone. Balad has a pizza hut, green beans coffee. Some really good Defacs(Chow halls). And a good PX and Iraqi shops and a movie hall. And you take buses everywhere. Or you can check out a vehicle for 2 hours but do not be late turning it back in. You can loose your privledge. Also Do not miss any meetings or anything in Houston,TX. You miss 1 thing you will have to go back home for 6 months. What are you going to be doing in Balad? Good luck and have fun, Mark

My resume was in for about two weeks. My resume was pretty in depth. If you were in the military do not be shy of using military terms. I have heard that watering the wording down to make it more "civilian friendly" could make your qualifications seem less spectacular. I do already have a passport. Good luck

Your physical is done in sections. But the one on one is done in a cutained off room. You won't actually strip unless they ask you to. As far as I can remember. But the medical is all day usually try and get on the first bus or two. You will be done much earlier. It will be earlier also if you have your passport. if you don't have your pasport you will go to the passport office first. I believe. Anyway good luck. Mark

My DH has his resume in with KBR for a carpenter position. He's highly qualified, no back child support, bankruptcy etc that would rule him out - so I'm hoping he will be offered something.

My best friend and I are thinking about going over to Iraq together to make some money to pay off bills. I was wondering what the chances were of us being able to be at the same place and what the average pay would be for clerical/administrative work? Any information would be great - it will be a big decision to leave my husband and 3 year old but if the money pays off our bills - I'll definitely consider it. Thanks!

The best thing to do would be when you put in your resumes make sure you check out each job information. but when A recruiter calls you or her that you request it not that it will happen. But there is always that chance. The best place to try and work with a friend or partner/spouse is at USMI- any location in Iraq. Also Afghanistan is building up. Really fast so you might want to check that out, Good luck and have fun, Mark

So what does the physical entail exactly? Blood work?

- Was this comment helpful? Yes / No Reply - Report abuse

mgparrothead007 in Bagdad

It all starts off with a drug screen. Then you go to another site for blood pressure, blood work , over 40 you get some heart test or if you have heart problems in the past you get them anyway. If you are taking any kind of meds they will come up on your drug screen so write them down the night before and also bring the perscription with you at least 6 months worth. A regular physical with the doctor. A test for your breathing, they give you three chances so don't smoke it will cause you not to breath out enough air. And if you fail that you go home. Vision test hearing test. Also a test for fitting you into a truck (truck drivers only) with full body armor to see if you fit and have no problem getting in and out. The drug test also checks for alcohol and so does the blood test. Since you cannot drink in theater(Iraq or Afghanistan) until you are physically on R&R and in Dubai. I always made a pact with myself to not drink a week before going to Houston and all the way thru till R&R. They will be watching at Houston International Airport, And Dubai. Plus please tell this to people you meet in Houston, Tx. . To many people mess it up and drink and get drunk and miss meetings then they go home and cannot come back for 6 months. Anyway it is pretty simple If your ggroup is smaller like 300-400 it goes by faster but if they are around 800-1000 it will be long no matter what. Good luck and keep me posted, Mark

Ive been trying to work for KBR for the past couple months now. My father is currently over there in LOGCAP 1 in camp victory and is trying to get me over there. He turned in a referral to Mr.Hightower, one of the head guys over there. But i dont think it helped. Also Ive called 2 recruiters, a Marco and Joe Pennington. It's very hard to get a response or a answered call, which is understandable because i bet there busy. My father and is roommate are willing to do a employee referral. Any info or number of a recruiter that has more of chance of picking up or getting me a step farther would be appreciated.

Well unfortunatley. the recruiters are not allowed to call back unless you have been selected already. But keep on trying calling them if they pick up it might help you. I found that out when I was trying to go back. But right now it kinda hard to get on. because they are waiting for the new task order to kick in. And processing thru Houston is slowing down some possibly. But if your Dad's Boss or one of his puts in a (REQUISTION) for you for a job you put in for they will need that job number and they can request you by name. Usually by the time they have that information to the time you go to Houston, depending on When that job has to be filled can be a 2-6 week wait or less just depends on how bad they need that position filled. Because people demob out everyday from Iraq and Afghanistan. And they also mobilize to those ares also. But depending on the job you will have to take a Whabi test usually for drivers but sometimes they give them to everyone. But that would be your best bet to get your Dad's Boss to submit a (Requistion) for you if he has any position open. Oh just an FYI it's LOGCAP 3 . That we are on. LOGCAP IV is just around the corner. But they are hiring for LOGCAP III only. IV still has another year. Good Luck, MArk

300-400 people at a time wow!! So are they still hiring in large numbers. I feel qualified, and my friend that is on the way will be hand delivering my resume to a recruiter. From what she told, me she said if you make it Houston for processing you pretty much have the job, providing that you pass the physical of course.

Can anybody there that is currently working in IT tell me about the environment. Is it safe? Do you stay on the base the entire time?
