He wants to be a heavy equipment operator. He is a journeyman carpenter as well though!! He has every license under the sun, he's a crazy man. But with the economy, we are really struggling. We are up in Boston though and it's been nearly impossible to get any jobs or get a recruiter for KBR. He's been in the military and everything. If we could at least get a recruiter on the phone then we could try to get someone closer to here. But he is more than qualified to do pretty much everything. I would really appreciate it if we could get that information! You would be a life saver!

Hi, im sorry to hear that. Our recruiter only deals with licensed electricians. If you go to www.indeed.com/cmp/kbr and scroll down to salaries, bonuses and benefits forum there may be someone there that can help. It is very active and has a lot of wives, i know that there are some that are carpenters and i know at least one that has a hubby over there as heavy equipment operator. Good luck and hope to see you at the other forum !

I was told that if you don't hear from a recruiter in a two week period to resubmit your application/resume so you can go to the front of the list. How do you go about this?

Justin Sellers in Temple, Texas said: Hi my name is Justin and I have completed a application and submitted a resume to KBR on the 13th of this month and was just wondering if anyone knows how to get in contact with a recruiter. I have applied for a bunch of jobs in the logistics/warehouse side of the company, especially in the Iraq and Afghanistan area. I have also read quite a few post and have seen the name Journee Jones floating around is this a person of interest that can help? I have a 5 yr management background in the automotive parts industry and very detailed trained in inventory control. Any suggestions?

Journee hasnt been on the forum for a while now. She works for KBR and is some kind of resarcher i think. After her came Barbara Gallager, and now i think its Vanessa Henley. They seem to take turns, sometimes they can help and sometimes not. Journee was very helpful in getting your resume to the right recruiter but unfortunately not been on.

Hi Switch, You seem very knowledgeable about this whole process, and I thank you for the advice I've read so far. I am wondering if the KBR recruiters will only take Licensed Journeymen. I am a Union Journeyman Wireman with 13 years experience, but in Illinois they do not license us. Any help would be appreciated.

My husband has applied with KBR and has heard nothing. He has been an electrician for 30 years. Who or when does KBR return any information on jobs. Do they have recruiters that get in touch with applicants. Are there jobs in Iraq?

You have to be a licensed electrician to get hired with kbr.And I think u must have at least 5 years under your belt.And it takes time for a recruiter to get in touch with you.
