    I was told everything would still happen, just not for up to three weeks. And they put me on standby pay until I fly. Is this the same for anyone else???

    50... You must be one of the 10 people they are letting deploy. The rest of us got shafted. I'm so upset about this....

    the worst part, must have asked ten or more times if the transition would affect us, they said oh no no no, all that will happen is a shirt and paperwork change.

    Default Same boat

    Same boat here man, no job and tons of bills. Spent the savings on getting all the medical stuff and the passport. Sitting around waiting on the final call after being told three tenative dates. Never got standby pay, just told ok, your deployment date is the 25th....then last week its on hold indefinitely due to KBR. Now its off altogether. I applied to sallyport just after I heard about the contract being done with and still havent heard from them. Maybe they will be looking for new hires soon, who knows?

    I guess those of you with the "stand by" pay are the 10 people getting deployed

    How did you get standby pay? Is that because you've been over there before?

    Jason called me today, saying I would not be going to Iraq. He said I was one of the top 18 and that their VP was going to talk to Sallyport and advise them to hire us. He also said they are still going to pay me standby pay, but wouldn't say for how long. I don't understand why they would pay me if they know I'm not going. Makes me wonder if there are some legal issues and they are just trying to cover there butts. After all, we did sign an offer letter stating they were going to pay us x amount of dollars. Now they say sorry bout ya. I think if you have all of your receipts, legally they have to reimburse you. The standby pay...I just don't understand that at all. Just my two cents, and sorry to everyone else who is in the same boat as me, I feel your pain.
