When I was there, the pay was great. The biggest drawback was being away from the family. I had a good manager, treated me fairly and the job itself was pretty easy. There some that werent happy being there but loves the pay. Which didnt make sense to me. There is room for advancement and make six figures. My time with KBR overall is one that I will never forget.
Great pay, good benefits and good people
Working overseas and dangerous country assignment.
RCM Analyst/Senior Business Manager (Current Employee) – New Boston, TX – July 16, 2018
Typical day is meeting with government customers and making their job easier by giving solutions to the problem. Hardest part of the job is that it is contract work. The culture is like most office cultures. Management does not micro-manage. They like you to think on your own but still provide help if needed.
A typical day is spent preparing equipment for delivery to customers, making the deliveries and then picking up the retired assets about 48 hours later, The work is mostly in a warehouse, so the atmosphere is relaxed. Management lets me know what I am expected to do and then allows me to do the work without micro-management. What I find enjoyable is learning more about the methods of workflow in the warehouse, how the material is tracked.
Working in Iraq. Enemy fire a continuous concern. Work 7 days a week, 12 hours per day. 2 Week paid vacation every 4 months. Meals and quarters provided. Temperatures can reach 145 degrees in the summer. Convoys between bases are extremely hazardous. Travel into and out of the country is hazardous. Great people on the sites.

I have been with KBR over 65 years, I like working for them for the most part but the last couple of jobs the Management was not the same. They looked the wrong way on a lot of things that were costly. I still like KBR but am prepared to work for other contractors am not as devoted to them as I was.
This company gave me a chance to come to work an learn an make myself a better person job wise an get to enjoy the job they have taught me to do, I would never look back only forward an that is all because of kbr.
