    The Chiefs arenít responsible for the screening and hiring process as much as they would be back in the US. (There's a delay in hiring because of this). What we need on Kwaj and what gets done about it stateside (where hiring is done) is a constant issue. Weíre tracking that information here with those people in-process.
    The best way to get hired is to stick to the system. Go to the Chugach website, Monster.com, or Kwajalein Range Services and apply there. Anyone who wants to show a resume off can send it to me. I will take a look at it to help answer questions. Others (sometimes Chiefs) can evaluate them too. But we cannot foreword anything off and wave a magic wand.
    Unfortunately, we're seeing individuals who sign offer letters and taking HR a couple months to finally get them on-Island. Patience is important. I can understand if youíre starving and Iraq is going to feed you, taking a position there as opposed to here makes sense given the timeframes some are dealing with.
    I will say this. Donít go around posting slander or trash in the forums. Kids can stay home. Check your spelling and please don't ask questions about information already posted in the threads. I see a lot of this, and itís your credibility.

    Can anybody give me details on how strict the background investigation is to work on Kwajalein?

    I have an excellent resume and it's never been a problem before, but I have a felony conviction from 25 years ago.

    Is there a strict policy on convicted felons working on Kwaj.

    Thanks!

    OK this is a little different. I'm the wife of a Driver/Paramedic and since ya'll have such great answers in this forum I was wondering if you could possibly answer a question for me. We are seriously looking at coming over to Kwaj and have done a lot of research. I know family quarters are hard to come by and I am VERY willing to work and pay my way. I'm a country girl and have worked all my life. If we come over we would like to stay for the next 20 years. What jobs are there for women. Especially since I'm not military trained so to speak. I've been a advertising/marketing executive for the last 10 years which doesn't fit well on the island. I'm not the teacher type but could possibly do the beautician or restaurant type work. How hard are those jobs to come by?

    Default Is there a thread for old kwaj firefighters?

    It seems a shame to take up space when you guys need to fill slots and there are guys needing jobs.

    The forum hasnt worked on kwaj for a while, and I had to get used to the changes of the site to even find the forum.
    Were still hiring, always are. The new policy is to get people here within 30 days of an application. The interview and application process combined. Travel is rushing people to meet this deadline. Have a passport ready when you apply. Thats all I can say. You might get passed over if you make the company wait.

    I have a few questions about the contract jobs offered by KRS on the Marshall Islands.

    First, what type of security clearance is required? A simple background check, NAC, or Secret Clearance?

    Second, I noticed that the age restriction of 37 years has been removed from the recent job postings at KRS - Job Opportunities. Does this mean that someone older than 37y is eligible to apply?

    From what I understand you have to have a secret clearance. I couldn't tell you about any of the other stuff as far as requirements. I'm applying for the inspector position. I'm retired with 30+ years in, the last 3 in Fire Prevention. I'm and old guy (50 y/o) so you definitely WONT have to fight me for the nozzle, you can have it. I was on Kwaj/Roi-Namur from April 86 to Dec 87. I'm looking into the AFG positions too. Hope this info helps. maybe we'll see each other out there.

    Thanks for your input. I remember that the job postings on the KRS website used to specify an age cut-off of 37 and the need for a Secret clearance. Now, they do not show these requirements. So, I thought I would ask about it. Either way, I'll still be applying later this year, after I get my ARFF certification.

    As for me, I'm 40 years old with 15 years as a firefighter. I feel the need to roam and see a little more of the world. Good luck with your job search and, who knows, maybe I'll see you in the Pacific.

    DoD regulations for entry FF's are the same for Dod contractors. 37 is the cut off age unless a waiver is granted. That doesn't mean that they follow these rules....

    As far as I can tell, 37 is the cut-off for ops, unless you have previous time served. I don't think there's an age cut-off for prevention. You will need a secret clearance for Kwaj as well.

    To you young guys...if I were you, i would try to get hired by a city or DOD department anywhere I could. The contract world is shrinking and some companies are already hiring FNs (foreign nationals) because they can get them cheaper than expats. Just a bit of advice from someone who has been there...
