DEEPinTHEheartOTX in Austin, Texas said: Please advice. I have applied for various positions online with DynCorp, is there anything that anyone would be able to recommend that might speed up my hiring process. I have a supply/logistics military experience and some LOGCAP. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

That's an excellent question. I remember during my deployments with the Army, there were probably less than 1/50 contractors that had military experience, that's a friggin shame. I probably applied for 50 jobs with DynCorp, ITT, and Fluor in the last 8 months and got 1 job offer with ITT, but it was in Qatar. I do work for one of the bigger contractors in the states though, email me and I'll help you out with recruiter contacts with them. They froze all the Iraq/Afghan jobs until December though. They have stuff in Qatar, etc, you'll at least be able to get your foot in the door.

I do not know Dyn-Corp specific, but DOD says you can't be here if you require any type of injection drug, an electrical dependent device (CPAP), or on any prescription narcotic or sleep aid.

They are the same as KBR - High Blood Pressure, BMI, Injectable Drugs - Diabetes. You can actually make it through with a pacemaker if your cardiologist will sign off for you.

Hubby has been with Dyn for 8 months now....I hate to admit it but KSNIPER is not kidding when he says they are messed up. Won't even go into details - Tore up from the floor up.... Stay with KBR or go with Fluor.

I had under considerations Laundry Supervisor for a few weeks after I applied and I been applying since Oct as well. But I did actually get a call for another position that was not under consideration. I'm in Afghanistan now and been here are 9 days waiting for my hop to my FOB. I also got an offer from ITT but getting a clearance takes a while. I neeeed the money quick so I chose Dyn which had a quick hire process. I signed the offer on fathers day and on 4 July I was in Ft Worth. Lots of paperwork back and forth between that time. I spent 4 days at the Marriot, which is also Dyn's deployment center location. People told me to hang in there, which I did. Now I pass it on.....Hang in there, I been waiting for my turn for months too. Your turn will come. Keep applying and Good luck...

Thanks a lot for the info, it helps to know that others are getting in after a few months. I was puzzled after not seeing any changes in my status with Fluor, and I have also applied for a laundry tech position, so I'll keep applying and thanks.

I'm glad I made it and I'm thankful that I have gainful employment. I'm glad to start catching up on bills. This place I'm at in the mountains is far more primitive than Iraq. Conditions are bad also. Some people compare it to Vietnam as far as structures and living conditions. However, This is what I expected though. This is what I signed up for. For those of you who want to work in southern A-Stan for LOGCAP, be sure you really want the job and make sure you accept and prepare for the conditions here. For those of you who gave me advice along the way prior to me getting hired, I'd like to thank you so much. I would be left in the dark had you not provided me with valuable advice and info. Now I'm here to do the same in return. If anyone has any questions I can be reached at chris_2pher@yahoo.com, however responses may be delayed because of intermittent internet connections.

None of the companies here are going to spend time corresponding with you unless they have an actual job offer. Keep in mind you may have been 1 out of a 1000 or so applicants for each job that you posted for. If you are sitting there waiting for a thank you for applying letter, you are going to be there a while. Keep applying and when/if they contact you, it will be for a job. Good luck.

chance at winning a lottery. Sad, especially to the ex-military
who already have a clearence and would probally stick it out instead of bail.
at a lottery

I didn't know anyone and I got a call 12 hours after I posted for a job. There is some "direct hiring" that happens when a manager request you by name. Most people want to blame the good old boy system as the reason they don't have a job, but it's really not the case. As many people that come and go, only a fraction of them are referrals from current employees. It is sad that there isn't more prior military here because they have a clue as to what they are getting into and far less of them DEMOB after the first rocket flies over their head. These companies do not care though, they get paid to process you, so they have no incentive for employee retention.

This may be a long shot, but does anyone have info that can be helpful for getting a laundry tech, food service, or supply position with Fluor? Like others I've applied for a while and I understand that many are searching for these jobs. I would greatly appreciate any assistance you all can lend to me.

If anyone would send some helpful info contacts, resume examples of ppl who've been employed overseas, companies that are hiring, or just information etc I would greatly appreciate it.

I've applied for AECOM, Fluor, CSA, Dyncorp. I've search KBR but all of their jobs require a passport and I just applied for mine.

My email is ltkemp09@gmail.com Thanks for your help!

You will need a passport regardless if it is a overseas job sir. Right now they are looking for folks with LOGCAP Experiance and they are also wanting folks who won't Demob because they have to live in a tent with 200 other folks, walk to the toliet, use a community shower or bottle water shower and last if you have incoming you are not headed to HR to Demob. They want folks who understand it is a war zone you can get killed and you have crappy living and dining situation. Don't pad your resume, meaning do not list skills you do not have because you will be sent straight home. There are no training classes either you know your job or you don't. Sorry to be so straight forward but i believe getting straight to the point is best way of dealing with folks. Good Luck.

@Sniper777 Thanks for the heads up, I just applied for my passport and waiting for it to be return hopefully the expedited will push it through in a short time. But also, I appreciate the info on the conditions of the war areas. I've been fortunate to meet many military members throughout my time and they to have spoken of the conditions. I'm well aware of what I'm putting myself into, but I've carefully thought this through so that's why I'm pursuing this to take care of my family. Either way, we're hoping that I can get a contract position but if not I'm joining the military so one way or another I will end up over in the Middle East. Once again, thanks for the info and I will definetly keep it at heart.

Sounds like your In if they sent you an offer letter and all the paperwork! save everything it's not uncommon when you get to Ft.Worth and they ask for documents you allready sent so be prepared."process on hold" on the web site will not change until you leave the deployment center.Congatulations!!

September 7, 2010 – We are deeply saddened to report that a September 6 attack on a forward operating base in Howz-e-Madad, in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, took the lives of three LOGCAP IV personnel and wounded several others.

William Allen, 51, of Munhall, Pennsylvania, worked as an electrician on the LOGCAP IV program and was killed at the time of the incident. Alan Herzel, 48, of Milton, Florida, who worked as a plumber foreman, received medical care after the incident but later passed away as a result of his injuries. A third subcontract employee who provided information technology support for the program also lost his life in the attack; DynCorp International will defer to his employer to release any personal details.

A number of individuals who were wounded in the attack were transported by medevac for hospital care.

In a condolence note to LOGCAP IV management, Colonel Cameron G. Holt, Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) Commander, Afghanistan, wrote:

“As is too often the case in war, the cost of freedom extends not just to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airman, and Marines who have pledged their lives to defend their country; it is also borne by our civilians at home and among the ranks of American defense contractors like you who stand shoulder to shoulder with us in this struggle.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who were injured or killed, with their families, and with all of our colleagues at FOB Howz-e-Madad.

Say a prayer for the families!! stay safe brothers.

(my original date was supposed to be a few days ago, Sept. 5th)

does anyone know exactly why its been pushed back? my recruiter didnt give me a reason and it is making me crazy and im trying not to think negative (even though its only been a few days). i had already put in my 2 weeks notice with my job so right now im going crazy waiting. i hope they dont tell me anymore bad news....

I wouldn't worry too much (easier said than done) the deal is the back up in country, Fluor is having the same issue. there are people in Dubai for 3 weeks waiting to get into country, the military is taking away are living quarters to make room for the surge of soldiers. What is your job? they need to hire alot of people due to the massive expansions at the FOB's I've been here a little over 5 mths, and the contract is really just starting, I feel your frustration etc... but if your job is a needed job, your fine. just have patience.

Fuels, yea that's the issue, no space, alot of FOB's are not turned on for the fuel mission, I'm at a FOB that is one of the only fully funded FOB's and fuel has not been turned on yet? mil still do it.My guess is there is no space to put you, once you hit FT.Worth the bill goes to the military and they get in trouble for doing that. Yours is a very important job! you'll have a bunch of FN's working under you 24hr's a day. just keep in touch with your recruiter, please update the group as things progress, even when you get into countrty you can be of assistance to others.Welcome this is a great time to join!!

I went through back at the end of April, I arrived Sunday they picked me up at the airport, checked in, quick briefing then hung out, I had a single room and the food is great,no cafetria stuff regular dinning, the next morning was a group briefing, there where like 20 npeople in my class, lunch then everyone went to the computer room and did on line training, 2nd day was Med, in the hotel, we finished in like 3 hrs as a group, nothing like KBR, then lunch and chill time, 3rd day we did classes up to 3ish real basic, ems traing basic cpr stuff, then at 6 found out who was flying, I had my LOA, most did so we flew the next day, the ones that didn't got theres I heard the next few days then they flew, stayed 2 days in kuwait at that time, then off to KAF. Now it maybe different I'm not sure that was my experience. also in FT.Worth they go over your SF-85 so bring copies of everything they send you and the items you send them!! real important.CAC card you get over here, they notify you you fly to KAF easy, just takes like 3-5 months or longer, goverment backlog not DI, you won't need it for anything anyways.

We'll if your DI, yes you'll be going 1st to KAF, the CHU's are double stacked (container housing units) you'll have a roommate or 1-2 depends on the amount of people passing threw, the living quarters are also for transients traveling to other FOB's the beds are twin size and comfortable you may even have internet in your room some do, the smell from the sewage ponds just outside our compound takes a while to get use too!!! seems to always blow in our direction, you'll be escorted for a day or two until you get your KAF badge, then you can venture on your own, you need a meal card to eat at the DFAC's so you'll go in a group on the bus, hopefully people from your department will help you, if not get with your supervisor so you can find out where your final destination is. good luck and bring a scarf its real dusty!!!

Depends on what position you get when you get there aviation or bag farm. Its not that difficult just really long days . when you first get there you will prob go to anaconda to process through to your new fob, dep on where you go as far as the pay they will tell you when you get to Texas and you sign your contract and meet your recruiter . Any questions just ask ill be happy to help

What is your recruitment specialty? Alot of guys say they submit and no response from recruiters, are there any tips or anything people can do to make sure they get calls from recruiters? I'm over here already but this site is to help brothers and sisters with important info. So if there's anything you can say to that effect it would be greatly appreciated!

I recruit Movement Control/Logistics. The main thing is to make sure that you qualify for the position you are applying for. I understand that alot of people are looking for positions. If you qualify and have the skill sets for that specialty I believe you will get a call. It does Dyncorp and the situation in Afghan no justice if we hire an unqualified individual. I will periodiacally surf social networks such as this to stay aware of applicant frustrations and to help me understand.
