Dynamic cosmopolitan environment.

A melting pot of varying cultures unified with a single purpose: to ensure the safe operation of aircraft that service the nation, region and the international skies. I have learned that it is possible to learn something from everyone and that sharing goes beyond the tools in the store, but also sharing ideas and strategies amongst teams.

your success their success

A challenging place to work and success was measured on( on time departures) and following procedures. my day started at 05:00am and ended at 14:00pm a fast paced enviornment, safety was primary concern every day. i learned to be a team leader and work with many various cultures to promote integrity and outstanding customer service. the hardest part of the job was the weather its very hot. the best part of the job was on time departures and watching your aircraft soar down the runway field.

Pros

work schedule is 4 days on 4 days off, life style is very customary to Arab traditions, the airport is new and very modern

Cons

the heat of the desert, work schedule.

Company could use a little management tweaking

The company has to review how to handle operations. As of now, it is too chaotic and inefficient. It may be due to a lot of manpower or due to less experienced managing. Promotion is not based on work ethics but based on direct supervisors talking you up to higher management. Not based on skills/experience and productivity

Pros

Salary is a bit attractive

Cons

but only "if you get regularized

Not really a good place to work but just fine

All fine but salary, how the company treats the people and the contracts is not good. For now they are limiting the work hours of the people and that makes the contracts having low salary cause they base per hour. Some higher ups dont care about there people and just keep them work. Over all the company itself is great. Only a there things to improve and do so that people will always be happy working for them.

Pros

Good country to work and accomodation provided for contracts

Cons

Contracts are base per hour. If no work then no salary.
