      • For those of you who are trying to get hired out here, take all the rumors with a grain of salt. There is truth to some things that are said, but one site may be ran totally different than another. When everyone was hired on with Sallyport they signed up for working 48 hours on, and 24 hours off. Throw in a couple days of 12 hour dispatch on top of that and it might not be as great as you thought at "some" sites. However, the site I am at I have not had a day off in 3 months and its a great place to be. Either way you are going to make at least 90k a year. It all depends on where you go and who runs your site.

        As for who you work for, it doesn't really matter. Its a contract, which means it can change at the drop of a hat. They don't fire everyone you just switch companies. If you want the job, apply to all the places you can: KBR, Sallyport, Dynacorp. ITT and just keep applying until you get hired.

        and while you are waiting to get hired, if you you don't have your ARFF and ARFF DO certs, got get them! you will be more likely to get hired and you will be a more valuable asset.

        Good Luck!

          The unfortunate thing right now is that Sallyport will not be providing services in Iraq under LOGCAP IV. KBR will be self providing these services and will be paying a MUCH lower rate. You will NOT make 90K, not even close. Any new hire should be looking at 60-70K beginning Jan 2012. My point is if you have a job do not leave it and come over here thinking you are going to make the big bucks, cause that gravy train has pulled into the station. If you want six figures you need to look at AFG, it is that simple. Good Luck Brother!
