    Angry

    I can't get these idiots at dynacorp to tell me the truth. They say that they want you to call them and then act like they don't know you when you do. You email them and they ignore them and then when you follow up with them they lie to you. I was told that the "chief" reviewed my application and turned it down because I didn't have Hazmat but yet I have Hazmat level I and it is IFSAC which is Operations. There are several of these recruiters that seem to be calling doing nothing but getting peoples hopes up. So if you have talked to Jacob, Cortney, or Pat don't bank on anything cause according to their website I should be well qualified for positions and yet they are saying I'm not even after sending them proof.

    Yes they have people on the ground. I hung out with several of them two days ago. Lots of them are here and more are incoming.

    I understand some of you may have financial troubles, however, these contracts are very expendable! Don't let that dollar bill get to your head.

    I finished up my contract back in Sept. and I'm still looking for full-time work. I'll say it again....



    IF YOU HAVE A JOB. STAY HOME!!!!!
    Sorry just wondering. Are you referring to not giving up a firefighter job to go overseas and that you are still looking for a full-time firefighter job? Or are you still looking for a full-time job doing anything? Thanks.

    what you need to know is that if you have a stable job that pays decent, don't go overseas.!!!! because when you return you might not have a job for a while.. Unless you know u can get ur old job back or have something lined up, dont leave..

    I'm looking for Fire and EMS jobs. That's all I know how to do! All I am saying is, if you have a steady job, STAY HOME!

    Default Question about Dyncorp application

    I filled out a few apps for Dyncorp about 3 weeks ago they were for firefighter, engineer, inspector, and crew chief. Well I went on my account today and it made me fill out another application that was even longer than the first application for each position. Is this a good sign...

    Have you gotten a call from a recruiter? If you haven't then I would be trying to find out what is the delay in that. It will take some time but they will call you depending on your qualifications. You will have to be patient but they are still hiring.

    Default dyn v itt

    First...for all you searching for dynacorp fire jobs; you won't find it on the internet because it's dyncorp not dyn-A-corp.

    DynCorp hasn't lost the contract and, if you have any experience with big money "war-zone" government contracts...aahhem WSI/KBR lackeys(myself included), you would know the smart money is that DynCorp will never loose the contract. I worked for Dyn Fire, and I have friends that work for ITT Fire and Dyn still. From my own experiences and unsolicited opinion I offer this advise.

    When Dyn finally started paying people correctly my pay was never late or inaccurate. The pay and the work was an easy six figures. The firefighters, from first time volly trainee to municipal career Chief, were all great to be around and work with. The Dyn organization though, was another story. They were extremely difficult to deal with, had zero answers, and didn't have a clue what my job as a firefighter entailed. That being said, it was gravy "firefighter" work, if you didn't mind the company hastle. On the other hand, Chief Officers will need to understand that this poses a huge issue for you. You will want to drive a tent stake through your head after trying to get anything accomplished over there. The next two years for Dyn Fire is going to be a severe challenge. Be prepared for the headaches and nightmares to show no mercy. If you can remember money money money and forget your life back in the states, you should do just fine. There is power, internet, shelter, food, and water almost anywhere you go in the Dyn half of Afghanistan. If the only other thing you need is greenbacks, then have fun, don't forget the aspirin, and keep your money in the bank.

    My friends have told me a lot about ITT. My opinion is ITT is way ahead of the curve. If I had to choose all over again, I would abandon the familiar Dyn and go with ITT.

    Remember that the job market in the states will get worse as you're capitalizing in you're new found desert home. If you go, plan on not finding a job in the states for at least a year, unless you're super firefighter extraordinaire. And, once that job makes you an offer don't delay because there are about 3000 other contract firefighters applying for the same shift. You will never make six figures as a firefighter, ever! You will probably never make six figures as a Chief Officer, ever! Don't get to used to it. I almost did, but I got lucky and found a new Dept. to call home.

    One last thing....Something that the salty KBR/WSI old-timers will understand. Afghanistan has way more bunker time then Iraq ever did. Keep your head low, your nuts(or cookie...for the ladies) covered, and be safe.
