You guys Ok over there?

Heard there was an explosive device that landed right beside your workplace? I hope they weren't aiming at you and you are all safe and sound. Is any one now having second thoughts about being there?

Hiring?

The turn over rate is high. A tower controller is leaving tomorrow. You never know when they will hire. The best thing to do is sign up for email notifications from Flight Global and the SERCO Middle East company site. You can input your CV into their system in advance. This way you will be ready to submit an application when they start hiring.

Good luck.

Most readers on here would be able to understand the definition of Bizarre without resort to a dictionary.
Do you, therefore, mean Bizarre in the sense that:
1. It is Bizarre to want to work in Baghdad?
2. Bizarre to have a beer in Baghdad?
3. The staff turnover rate is high?

Happy New Year

P.S. Grizzled, Happy New year to you. As they say in Ireland: "May your shadow never grow less"

Happy New Year to you too Verc! Hope 2012 is especially rewarding and fulfilling for you!

And the same to all my ATC friends and colleagues (and, in my case, brother and nephew and daughter too!) the world over. Especially to those in such challenging places as Baghdad.

Prascho… As Vercingetorix wrote, we know what the word means. We are simply wondering what you meant.

Hello Prascho

Are you going to waste the time of these good folks about applying in Baghdad?
If you didn't get into Muscat, what on earth makes you think that you are going to get in over there?

How are that benchmark of ATC - Bulgaria doing?....and how are the girls?

Farell, once again.

Who is exactly going to waste the tame of these really nice folks?!?!?!
M8 find out forum for English language teachers here is not one of them, is it. And u r bloody right. Bulgaria is one of the best ATC units in Europe. There r many issues about that just read m8 just read more. U r teacher, r not u.
Being ATCO is so cool. I know that fact and I'm not going to stop u dreaming about that but really don't waste our time with your so stupid post here.
About the word "BIZZARE" and what it means.
Who has to find out what it means has already found it out.

BR PRASCHO

P.s and HAPPY NEW YEAR Farell spend more time with your wife and don't try to be 1 of us. The last 1 is too late for u.

I'll get banned if I say what I want to say....so I guess I will just have to hold my tongue.

As I said in a previous post:

"In all seriousness, a propaganda video of the sort that you have just spewed out is no reflection on professionalism or indeed competence.

And I am presuming with your tirade on both Airways and DGMAN that you feel you are more qualified than the powers that be here that made the decision to go down this path and therefore are no longer interested in pursuing a career here - which is a very quick turnaround from your comments over the past few months on this thread looking for room-mates, Audi dealers and quote "a reason to leave my job".

Why do you want to leave such a bastion of professionalism and competence that is Bulgaria and trade it for such a "backward system with a long way to go" that is Oman?
Just for the money? That's not what you said on your original application. You gave a whole host of other bullshit reasons like people and lifestyle and "Oman's reputation in the region." right?

Seeing as though you were one of very few Bulgarians who were offered a position, it will not be too hard to pull your application and shred it for you.

After all 8,150 EUR tax-free a month is not too much to lose for shooting your mouth off anyway, is it?
Not when you can have your pick of jobs in the ME due to, as ATCO1962 says, you being part of the global standards benchmark that is ATC Bulgaria, assuming they pay the same as the "backward system" here in Oman.....oh, they don't do they?!

My advice is for you to wind your neck in - or there may be a chance the only time you see Muscat is from a postcard that BHD might be good enough to send you."

The same holds true for now. A useless waste of time and space who did nothing but whinge, complain and pass comment on a place he knew nothing about.
The fact that a full year has gone around and you are still hunting for a new place to work speaks volumes. What about Dubai, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi or Ireland?.....all of those not good enough for your supreme abilities.

Can't believe that the best you have in your arsenal of smart-arse comments is to have a go at my job!
Amazing what someone will say when they can hide behind an alias, isn't it?

On that note, I'm off to bed to dream about being you.
