Crewdog....all that info was fantastico!! I've never really had much interest in going to the Middle East but after reading your posts....they've piqued my interest!

I'm in Italy right now but our contract is due to end June 2012. Does LM have any engine mechanic postions (JEIM) there?

Thanks for any info,
Ron

This is LM's career website. Take a look to see if they have any open positions. If you have any further questions about job openings, please direct them to Travis Brookes, as stated earlier in this post. I was picked up on another program and have moved from the UAE. I'm happy to have helped some of you with your job search. Best wishes to each of you. http://www.lockheedmartinjobs.com/index.aspx

quitter
One is not considered a quitter while making a move within the company to a position in which he/she is better suited and/or more capable of gaining valuable knowledge. I moved for better opportunities within a different arena. Frankly, your comment says a lot about you. Thank you for your input; however, perhaps you should keep your simple minded comments to yourself…unless, of course, they add to an intelligent conversation. I doubt it... : )

Lockheed might be the place for you Slim1297. You'll have to keep an eye out on the Lockheed Martin Career page. As stated in the post previously, there are weapons positions open from time to time. And, yes, you could also apply for a position in Saudi on the F-15's on the web page listed above. We do not have weapons positions at my current location. Good luck!

Bountyhunter, what type of experience, and what airframe(s)? Again, keep an eye on the LM Careers page as well as the JSFirm page. Lockheed has a hand in many programs around the world. It would be difficult for me to point you to one that fits your wants and needs. When/If you find a position that you are interested in, send me a message and I'll let you know if I have a contact for you. Check the MANY jobs also posted on JSFirm, Boeing, L3, as well as others. JSFirm has listings for many companies. Good luck.

The CrewDog, I just finished reading your original post and this is what I found on the requirements on visas for family. If they are just visiting and have US issued -, they do not need any sort of entry visa. Check it out...good info for anyone that is going to be living/working there!

Good luck with that! Yes, I understand that if he/she has a US pp and is only visiting....there is no need for an entry visa. As I mentioned in my beginning statement....my spouse needed to come and live with me, not to visit. We intended on the UAE being a home, not a vacation spot. If a member's spouse is to visit he/she would need to make a border run if they wished to spend more time than thirty days in the UAE. My situation was far different my friend. My spouse is not yet an American citizen, thereby multiplying the the requirements ten fold. Oh...and did I mention how poor the mail system is in the UAE? The frustration continued at every turn. Two days before leaving the UAE, I had finally gathered all of the documents for her arrival. Unfortunately, it was too late and I'd had enough of the frustration. Thank you for the info. I am sure that it will help someone who wishes to have their spouse visit. If I was given all of the information that I have presented here before leaving the States, I could have made a more educated decision about the situation ahead. Without it, I was trying to find my way in the dark. This is why I posted the info. :)
