Thats good $, but not good enough to keep them from having a rediculously high turnover rate.

I wonder how they were hired. There was only one job posted online and it went away after my friend got the job. Do they post openings only one at a time?

Afternoon, I have been looking at the past postings in regards to UAV jobs and have noticed some about battlespace. is anyone currently working for them and if so could you give some idea about from the time you were interviewed till you were hired. I applied and had both interviews , told my info is at the hiring managers, to be patient that the process does take time. I applied late Sept and have heard nothing, it makes me wonder if they are being truthful or if they are waiting to tell me they are not going to hire me. do they even tell you if you have not been selected or just leave you hanging

Just so you know....sorry its a repost, many have posted the same type info but its all true so worth considering if you dont mind traveling.

Pass the word on two companies... I sent this out before but they are always looking for people and have state side jobs or jobs that deploy
and the pay is GREAT.

My buddy was getting 10k a month after only 8 years in the military.
This was a few years back but the big thing is security clearance so
anyway just passing the word again.

State side is in Vegas and when the jobs that deploy they are places like Qatar working with UAV and no UAV experience is required and its
four months there come back for four then go for four...

A buddy told me I would get 11k -15k take home a month if I started
today so anyway just showing what is out there.

All types of maintenance jobs! Battlespace is the name of the company I was talking about and the other is Camber.... an old expediter I know said he gets paid $600 a day so wanted pass on the info. Nice indeed huh

Thanks for the info, Ive applied at battlespace and was told today( once again) that my info is at the hiring managers, but they could not give me a firm date when they are going to contact me about the job. so it makes me wonder on whether I have been hired or if they are not going to hire me. any ways I looked at camber website do you know if they hire with out and A&P, Ive got the time as a mechanic just not the A&P.

No, I have not, just passing the site and info along, I work for the DoD and am happy there, just trying to pass info to fellow vets who may be looking for such work...I would not mind it myself but I'm done traveling for such adventures...the money sounds amazing, I'd love that kind of fast cash - good luck to you and all who look into it.
