I have already sent my resume to KBR, but would like to know some information on mechanics pay rate and how uplifts work, living and working conditions & work hours, tools, time-off, how often paydays are, is it auto deposit in US$ or card based? Are the facilities on military bases? If so, are you required to leave base to make repairs? How do you get to(and from) your working location, is it via military flights from the US? What kind of foods are available, I am a vegitarian is that a problem or is there vegatables?

Any information would be helpful.

Thanks,

I am leaving kbr today, having worked here for 2 months I can tell you that this company is only concerned with making money and is in no way going to repair any vehicles. It is in their best interest to drain the oil, redline them, and put the oil back in once they go bang. Then they can order new at cost plus, and the lazy mechanics can keep playing video games at their hooches. If you work here you will make aprox 55k-60k a year minus your tickets home (3 visits @ 1500 each) There are no days off and if you are willing to work and not just be there 7/12 you will get no support. It sounds unreal but take the job and see for yourself.

I did my time there and yea its nice to be home,but i wouldnt say anything bad about kbr, they employed me and they are like EVERY other company out there and thats to make money.you dont stay in business if you are not making money.
As far as yourr money,dont know what to tell ya, but i never had a problem with my pay,got every cent of it.

Normally KBR was paying around 89k in the past in Iraq while others paid more. Some folks swear up and down that KBR is an awesome company others quite the opposite. Some sad events might have caused KBR to loose the contract, they were not in Afghanistan with the Americans. KBR is a British company. There are other companies out there, at this point Afghanistan is winding down, so the well is dried up sort of speak. I am waiting for other opportunities to open up some where else. Siria, liBya or some other countries perhaps. Good Luck
