    Default Hours in Country

    Just so everyone is aware. If you are coming over with Sallyport, be prepared NOT to work 24/7's. If they are telling you this, please disregard the information. More people stayed then what Sallyport was expecting, so we are NOT working 24/7's. you get a few 24's a couple of 12's and a day or 2 off. The pay is LESS than what it was with WSI. So if you are coming over here expecting a 4K pay check every time...you won't get it. AND they took the 24 hour shifts away from us for night dispatch. Because of people "complaining" on the complaint email...

    Good luck.

    Depends on the hours you were able to work. Under 4K seemed to be the mark last check.

    Default Forget about WSI

    I was hired with WSI and scheduled to deploy on Oct 30th and about 10 days before deploying i got the call that WSI no longer has the contract and isn't sending anyone else over.so I have to start the whole process over with Sally port. On Oct 20th I filled out the Sallyport application but still haven't heard anything back. Im guessing they are still in the process of doing everything. but let me know if you know anymore news. jaydenloose08@yahoo.com

    This is what I am understanding. Sallyport has one more base to take over and that is going to be done by Wednesday. After this happens, they are going to evaluate what they need for Fire protection. I also understand that they will be losing about 20% of the staffing in December/January due WSI guys who are not staying on with them and are just finishing their contract which Sallyport is honoring. If anyone knows different please correct me.
