    Any recruiter contact info for ITT besides the website? Dyn-Corp just isn't doing it for me. Would like to switch to ITT

    aight guys I was hired on August 8th and sent to Texas, which was a good time. Great food nice rooms and fun at night. Next I was told I would be flown to Kuwait and immedietally getting on a flight to KAF. That didn't happen!!! I along with several others was met by a FCN that spoke very little english and moved us to a hotel. So we figured we would be flying out soon. I have now been in Kuwait since August 13 making my hourly rate for 40 hours a week. There is NO uplift in Kuwait!!!. Our rooms are nice here but that is all. The firefighter are sitting here and not moving. Now we are given $35 USD a day to eat as part of our contract saying meals are provided to us no charge. Lunch cost 11KD which is $3.56 per KD. You do the math on that one. So thats put you in the negative for dinner. Ol and the best part is there are 4 places to eat here at the hotel and dont even try to eat untill all the non Americans have eaten. If you are American you have to wait until they are done eating. So basically the hotesl fills at 6pm and you are allowed to eat around 8:30 pm.

    It's really hit or miss if you make it out of Kuwait on any kind of scheduled time frame. I was only there for 1 night. But, other firefighters that were there before me and at the same time as me didn't show up at KAF for another 2-4 weeks. Yes, Houston is fun but then Houston isn't Afghanistan. And the demeanor of the Dyn employees isn't the same either.

    Default Haven't heard

    I applied with DynaCorp/Sallyport/&ITT. I havent heard anything and it's been almost 2 months. I've got 4years experience, all IFSAC seals and national registry emt-basic. What's the trick??? Do I need to grease up in my bunker pants and take a picture of myself in front of a fire engine??

    I applied somewhere around the middle of the year, this year. I got an email from them at the beginning of August. It takes a little bit of time. They get a lot of resumes that they filter through. Patience is a big thing in there processes. I would not worry about it for a bit. If you have the right certs you should be good.

    Disclaimer: Dyncorp has a lot of structure guys right now. Last I heard they were full of structure guys, and they needed more ARFF guys. ITT won't touch you unless you have the ARFF. So that could possibly be a reason? Good luck Brother. Hope this helps a little.

    PS. The picture might be the icing on the cake that you need!!!!

    Apply for WSI they are still taking about 30 every month. They still have the Iraq contract until December.
