My company (Fluor), sent out a sightwide email for overseas assignments in the Middle East, specifically Iraq. I vollunteered of course:redflip

Rumor is that you get double pay, tax exempt, for one year minimum. I'm single and bored, so fookit I'd go. Maybe you get to carry an M16 to work:ar15

I know of some contract work in Afghanistan that pays $30K a month, tax free and you can take your own weapons too.

Not a bad gig, $30K/month and you get to maybe cap a few Tailban too

Fuck... I'd do just about anything for $30k a month. I'd work 3 months and then take the rest of the year off.

I heard the riding over there is is great this time of year. Ya just have to watch out for sand in the corners, sand on the straights, bullets flyin at your head, and women who's faces you can't see when you are bangin them (that might not be that bad of a thing):redflip

thats an understatement. A friend use to work on one of those boats, the owner decided he wanted to go out on of the trips but the was not enough room and told of of the newest crew members he couldn't go. The kid wouldn't get off the boat so they ended up leaving and the first night in really rough seas the owner hits the kid over the head with a hammer and tosses him overboard as everyone watched needless to say the guy doesn't own the boat anymore.

My company Bechtel, has been doing this for a while now as well....So have others, K.B.R, etc..all engineering firms. The pay is good, the quals are high and experience is a must...I applied earlier this year as well..Our Co. was supposedly paying 10-15k per week for designers which is me, and above that for actual engineers. But they are looking for 10+ years of experience

Keep in mind also, there is a reason they are paying that kind of cash...a KBR engineer was killed by a sniper, just a few weeks ago:shake

I think they are internal jobs only, and there is probably not much of a chance I could get to go, but hell I'll try.

Don't forget you have to watch out for landmines on a ride too:redflip

I know my buddy got out of the military and did a job like that but when he got there he wasnt even there for like a month then 2 people he worked with got shot and killed so him and everyone else there quit. And no you probably wont get a gun because you are a civilian and are not supposed to be a target!

Damn that sux! But on the upside, you could take vacations in super-nice countries like Pakistan, Afganistan, and Iran. Always wanted to go to UAE too:redflip
