Your new neighbours
I've seen these people in little Spinneys DSO, shopping wearing just their dripping swimmers and wet towels. Then broken nosed Dad turned up to drive them home in his open top Wrangler. They turned out to be Australias finest.

Too right mate. These Jeeps should only ever be driven by the womanfolk and hairdressers.

Show Villa is number 220. The security chappies on the gate are quite amenable to letting you take a gander. The doors open

Well it appears to have a library.

That's one up on my mid-terrace in Jumeirah. Shame I don't read.

We can now see why we get treated like we do here.

Announcement:
Meydan villa's out in the middle of nowhere...like prison row housing.

Prospective new joiners:
Where do I sign up, I want to come to EK at any cost.

Announcement:
Bond now $45000 and 5 years

Prospective new joiners:
Where do I sign up, I want to come to EK at any cost.

Announcement:
No pay raise, only a step increase even though there is out of control inflation and the cost of living is through the room.

Prospective new joiners:
Where do I sign up, I want to come to EK at any cost.


I just shake my head in amazement....maybe even wobble it a little bit

No harm in asking ; after all seeing is believing for some - so they say!

So who is joining at the moment?
LoCo and subcontinent?

It really depends where you come from. Give the RyanAir guys a muffin, and they will stay forever. They are only used to complimentary hot water.
And Dubai = heaven for the subcontinent guys.

Who else?

I would not go anywhere near Meydan dumps!

If not a declaration of obsolescence then what is it? Slightly over the top for me. I'll remain objective and find basis for your declaration rather than following own advice alone. Only my thoughts!

3 reasons for going to the ME:

Career.
Money.
Lifestyle.

EK is doubtful on all of them at the moment.

No, Meydan the soon to be cancer cluster, is not for me.

brokenenglish

You're completely entitled to your opinion,of course and I find it refreshing that someone bothers to follow my posts with such interest. I will not attempt to argue your line of approach as it's a personal attack and one directional

I would step out of the box and look at things in a round; beyond the flight deck or outside the aircraft - as a friend of mine recently put it in another thread.

I agree with everything here but I don't want to accept these arguments subjectively - call it supporting an opponent in order to understand their claim better and that's my point.

Whether it's necessary or not on this occasion to demonstrate your intelligence & comprehension - arbitrate, without an attempt to substantiate the merits of meydan et la, is a matter of deep regret.

guys
having seen them first hand up close and inside i am pretty happy with them and so is the wife.
They r big 4 bedroom 5 bath. Garden is crap. Can live with that. beautiful communal pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and lots of loungers.
Its 12 mins drive from dubai mall and 15 to airport.
Shopping malls going in and a Spinnies going on the doorstep. It has potential.

I can understand guys being pissed at been taken out of their current villas and sent here but for the new joiners who don't know any better its fine.

If u don't like it, take the money and sort urself out. look at the allowance as being 30000+ euros off ur mortgage bill every year.

meydan Heights preview, get ready

aslan1982 how do you work out they are big? the reality they are no more than a town house at the best, like a VIP labour camp they are very small compared to what is required for a family in summer as you need very inch of space to survive, a family with teenagers it is going to be cramped!

The only bath is in the master bedroom and it is a tiny half bath, the 5th bathroom you refer to is a box in the entrance with a toilet that any guest will be embarrassed to use as everyone will be able to hear any body functions.

The pool is not functional as it is not even wired to the mains yet, it is using a generator! We are told it will not open until there is a life guard on duty!


Your comment about taking the allowance, you sound like management?


But I do agree with the comment its fine for new joiners as they can see what a joke the company accommodation has become, and prior to joining base their decision on if they can survive in a cramped town house with no garden to speak of. That's if they shown Meydan at the selection days, or are the recruiters to embarrassed to show Meydan and still using Silicon as the standard expected!


Keep taking the pills they seem to be working!

Look at the Guys Profile(previous posts give it all away).. It all makes sense!

The T's & C's will continue the downward spiral because there appears to be no shortage of guys who will be happy JUST to receive a salary every month..
