  • Any Recent PAE- Antarctica Guys lurking around? Questions for you

    Hey all, long time no post.

    I have the opportunity to go to Antarctica as a contract Firefighter for PAE, just going through the last hoops before I either receive an offer, or an explanation of why I didn't receive an offer.

    When I did my phone interview, a lot of questions I had were answered, but there's still one pretty important unanswered questions that I have....

    What's the pay like?

    I'll take any other advice and insight you may have to offer, too!

        Found a site that listed the reported salary as being between $81K and $88K, I presume per year. No date on it, though.
        Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

        Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

          I have heard from several guys who have done Antarctica or other overseas spots for EG & G or Raytheon that the work is NOT for a family man. Great gig for someone young and single though.
