    CSA fire department is a joke. The management dosnt know how to run a department and the chief is sexist towards women. They are the laughing stock of the contracting world. The scheduling is all jacked up they lie to people when they recruit you they tell you 1 thing when you get there its a different story. They will say your gonne get tons of OT and hours but thats bullcrap. Expect to work 48 hours a week and make 2k a check. Your gonna make a lot less then they tell you. They lure you there by telling you how great it is. Dont waste your time with CSA you wont get any training done either. I worked there for almost a year and the training guys are all out for themselves they dont care about the firefighters.
    If your going to go all the way overseas, go with KBR or WSI...CSA is a waste of time when you can make 2-3 times as much with KBR or WSI. KBR operates in Kuwait and you make double, you can live offbase if you work with KBR too.
    If you decide you want to leave the contract early, they try to **** you over. You have to pay them back for the ticket and some costs too. Atleast with WSI or KBR you can leave at any time and they pay your way home. CSA makes it financially tough for you to leave because they make you pay back about 4-5k if you dont like it.

    Default CSA is a joke


    Not only does this Fire DEpartment suck but CSA as a company is a terrible contractor to work for. Expect low wages, low hours and low morale.
