Marshall Islands Firefighter Contract
I was writing to get some information on a firefighter contract with the Marshall Islands. I've recently applied for a Firefighter/EMT position and also for the Lieutenant position. I have seven years of experience and all the IFSAC certifications necessary. I am currently a GS 7 with a federal department and am looking into an opportunity like the Kwajalein Atoll contract, but would like some background information from some of you contracting vets.
What is the pay? I have read on this site where someone said $9 an hour, but that was a few years ago. What are they paying now hourly/yearly salary. If you only know the hourly amount, what are the pay period hours and how many pay periods? I'm a GS 7 making $62k a year now so I'd like to find a good contract making similar pay.
What is the island life like and how are the living conditions? I understand that it is isolated, but are there still opportunities to have fun, specifically, meet women? These are not pre-conditions by any means, but I'm just trying to form a better general impression. Thanks for your time gents.
