Is anyone currently working, or previously worked in Kuwait? I am thinking about applying for a position there.
Wondering about the living conditions, hours, pay, etc. The description says a Visa from the Kuwait government is required. Is this easy to get?
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim

KBR will apply for your visa for you, I work for CSA and I stay in the economy with my wife and kid. Hardly, any contractors stay on the bases. You will have to get a Kuwait driver's license also, which the company will pay for

Can you tell me how much it costs to rent an average apartment? Utilities cost per month? Do you own a car? What part of the USA are you from? Do most of the contractors live in the same area?

Thanks for all your help,
Jim

SuperMom,
Has your husband got any replies from the companies he applied for? Does he only want to go to Kuwait?

That's a relief. I thought I would have to pay for housing out of my wages.
Thanks for all the info. I appreciate your help.

Hello

I am trying to get a job as a civilian on the Military Base. I am an American and I have applied for a Security Guard Position for a company called Ececilis Corporation. I would like to speak with a recruiter because I have question, but it is really hard because he is in Kuwait? I am not sure how to get in contact with him. Does anyone have any ideas?

ITT is running the show in Kuwait and does nort want to hire americans. they prefer east indian and philipino but they also want more than $1.50 an hour. so they mostly work only the east indian on the military bases. ITT is another corporation that has turned there back on the US. dont waste your time as the military and the US government will also turn there back on you when you arive there. ITT does not follow local or US labor laws. they have coached the east indians to lie to the military when they want accoutabiliy. this is another courpt US corp. GOOD LUCK
