Good pay. Good benefits. lots of time off. Long drives to work. Yearly issues with the prime contract and uncertainty. Very US military oriented and difficult to progress in your career path due to US Military requirements.

Great ability to travel

The job was very good, but some of the Leaders in charge did not understand their professional responsibility and they expiation of their leadership role. There is a lot of the good old boys in system in place. So it's not what you know it's more who you know. I enjoyed the job, but I had a couple of terrible leader.

Great to get in the door

Overall the pay is the only thing keeping people. Management doesn't listen and honestly doesn't care. If youre looking for an opportunity to network for a better job its not a bad option.

Pros

Pay

Contras

Managment
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Not a stable environment

Do as I say not as I do environmentMismanagement of funds and timePay is low for overseasManagement gets big bonuses while the people doing the work get extremely much less. Example my manager would receive $12-$15K quarterly while I received $400 once

Definitely about who you know

Communication was rarely adequate. If you have an Army background, you have an automatic in. I did not have an Army background, so it was a constant struggle. There were individuals for whom I was responsible that were sabotaging me with my manager. My manager was incredibly difficult to work with and had extremely unreasonable expectations.

Pros

Good money, living conditions adequate

Contras

Nearly every other aspect of working for this company

Great group of employees that enjoy working together

I had a positive experience with Vinnell Arabia. At times the costumers were difficult to get to commit to training, however a good place to work. You make what you can of it.

Pros

Coworkers, benefits.

Contras

Excessive management focus primarily on former military officers.

Not a terrible place to work but could be MUCH better.

CSD (Community Services Division) is TOXIC Senior management is GARBAGE. Work for any other section but that one and you will be okay! If you have the chance to go aviation then go that route.

Pros

Able to meet good people and experience the Saudi culture.

Contras

Working for CSD
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Join at own risk

While Saudi is not bad, the company is a train wreck. Management is self-serving and untrustworthy. If you want an adventure and a decent paycheck its not bad. If you expect to be treated like a human being, vinnell is not for you. Contracting is a tough gig, but they make it much harder than it needs to be. Just know going in, it is not the company it once was.

Pros

Pay and benefits are decent

Contras

Management and work environment
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

Great Company to work

I wish I could go back there now, I miss the opportunity to stay longer in that great environment, the job is challenging but very rewarding. The accomodation andcompensation is also awesome

Management Issues

I was asked to create an entire courseware set based off of my past experience, which I was able to accomplish. Bearing that in mind, when I did apply for a promotion, I was passed over even though I was the more qualified (Experience, College Education, and Knowledge of company operations), in lieu of an lesser qualified individual who was “friends” with the current management. This type of selection is not in keeping with good ethical values and does not inspire employees.

Vinnell Arabia

The current position is Fire Inspector II working at Khashm Al An military air base. The hours range from an 8 to 10 hour work schedule, depending on the work load. The position provides the opportunity to train Saudi Arabian National Guard soldiers in Fire Fighting techniques. The culture provides the chance to explore and develop an understanding into the Saudi heritage and customs. The most difficult aspect of the job is traveling to and from work. As with any large metropolis traffic can be a challenge. Working in the Kingdom, provides the opportunity to travel as Riyadh is a central hub for various airlines. The chance to travel throughout the region, provides many chances to travel to places otherwise never thought of visiting. The management is similar to that of a fire department in the states. The chance to continue with professional development, career promotion has been rewarding. The employment also provides a solid financial foundation, to improve quality of life and other essentials.

Pros

Promotion opportunity

Contras

restricted social activities

Bad Management very Racial

Management cares about profit over people. Groups devide down racial lines. Lots of discrimination against blacks and whites. Both black and white do not care for the Saudis. Shameful....

It's not as bad as they say

Teachers, other educators, and various mercenaries always complain about working at Vinnell Arabia, a subsidiary of Northrop Grumman, home of the "best trainers in the world," It's not that bad, really.

Great place to work if you wouldn't mind staying in a shared dormitory-like apartment

Good place to work except the living conditions. Living conditions in this company are so wanting and they are made even worse by the old piping system whereby the smell is not channeled well from the bathrooms. Also apartments are too small and they're like dormitories.

Pros

Good salary

Contras

lack of career advancement
¿Te ha sido de ayuda esta evaluación?

i do not reccomend anyone go there

management is not employee friendly. The Chiefs are the ones that really make it a terrible place to work. Most of them act as if they are the ones that owns the company
