To get the money I was owed by this company I had to hire a lawyer and fight this through the Labor court in Saudi. It will take you months / years to get what you are owed and a lot of that will go to the Lawyer you hire.

Having said that, there are a few Lawyers in Saudi now that know Nexus by name and have won against them. I would be very reluctant to join this company. While the promise of great pay and schedule will draw you in, you can believe that your schedule will change without notice and you will spend every month wondering if you will be paid.

The company operates, in my opinion, as a kind of ponzi scheme. I believe they don't have enough free cash to pay their people or suppliers and when money from one contract comes in they use it to cover another. If you do join this company, insist on being paid upfront / in advance of working for the month. Do not get the resident permit and enter the country under their sponsorship.

They can choose to not issue you an exit visa and you could be stuck in the country for months with no pay and nowhere to live! Hopefully enough prospective crew will see this (and all the other comments) and avoid this company. There are better, more stable places to work.

The Chairman of Nexus, AKA Nick Nack from the James Bond films, is an evil little man who doesn’t pay his employees and doesn’t fulfill his contractual obligations. If you decide to work for him be forewarned. I worked for this little toad for too long and it was the wrong decision. Learn from others mistakes. The promise of good salaries and good living accommodations is a hook to get you there. Once they have you there, they will start to whittle down every thing they promised. Good luck.

Well that doesn´t sound very promising, though in line with what others have been saying. I guess - where there is smoke there is a fire.

The A320 adds have been posted a couple times this year. If you thought they treated pilots and FAs poorly when there was a shortage, be prepared to be terribly mistreated.
