To all of those that are still looking for a job in the UAE, here you go:

  • Fuel/Hydrazine Tech(Aircraft Mech 3)
  • Systems Instructors
  • AGE instructors
  • APG/Crew Chief Instructors
  • APG Techs/Crew Chiefs
  • Avionics Techs
  • Material Management, otherwise known as MHA's or parts and delivery handlers, expediters, etc.

No matter what your position, unless you're being hired into a management job, you all get the same.

Net is about 70-73,000 a year with a bonus at the end of the year and a new furnished apt. is provided; utilities such as elect. water/gas are paid for by the company; cable, internet. etc. are paid by the employee and it's not cheap. I'm getting basic cable with a few movies for 71USD a mth and I'm getting the mid range internet connection for about 80USD a mth. The apartments are beautiful, but the drive in every morning from Al Ain can take up to one hour and twenty minutes(One-way) Groceries work out to be about the same as you would pay in the states;gas is about 1.29 a gallon right now; in some areas it's as low as 1.15 a gallon. The gas is cheap, but when the time comes for you to rent your own car, you'll pay at least 600USD a month. The gas is cheap, but you'll be at the station filling up a l ot with that long drive to and from work.

With all that said, I would still encourage people to take the chance on this because it's a good opportunity overall. A POC is Thorne Ambrose (864)236-3758 or (864)414-6586. Greenville,SC is fielding and filling the positions out here right now and you will route through Greenville first if you are hired, unless you are already in the middle east or in Europe already.
Only serious applicant need apply because if they sense that you are not committed to coming out here....well, they'll move onto the next applicant.
You won't have a lot of time to get your affairs in ordfer when the offer letter comes, so if you think you have a good chance of getting hired, start making preparations before hand, i. e. house, apt., vehicles, bank accounts, family notifications, children and -. I had only 12 days to get all of my affairs in order before I arrived in the UAE.

Good luck and happy hunting :D

You just have to treat them the way you would like to be treated for the most part. Just show them respect and they will show you respect. However, don't disagree with them in front of their peers or in front of other LM employees. Some of them are interested in being taught things and some of them could care less.

Yes, I have my wife and eight month old son here with me. I finally got into one of the new apartments last weekend and things have gotten better since then. It's just that drive to and from Al Ain everyday, definately gonna need God as my co-pilot from here on out.

I didn't move from there. I was still living in the Mafraq Hotel before they opened up the new apartments. I'm satisfied witht the location. I can get to downtown in 10 mins. and I have a nice little market (Abela's) right down the street. It's got a pork shop and an ATM....I'm all set! :D

Not necessarily. You can put him in the private school, but it's expensive.

If you live in Al Ain...where is the work site? Abu Dhabi or Dubai?

Why are the apartments so far away? Are there other jobs that are closer by?

Is this a Lockheed Martin "village" or is it full of expats?
