I know them very well. what dom you want to know? what is your job title?

Lucky Luciano

I just view your profile and you are a landscape architect from former yugoslovia. I know the opening they have for your position. BTW there is a technical Manager from Croatia already working with them

zekabg

You work for them? I would like to know, are they good with employes, and are they, if I can say, "safe company" regarding salary, health care...are they respecting contract?
Yes, I know, I have an interview for a position of landscape architect.

Lucky Luciano

"salary, health care...are they respecting contract?"

The short answer is "YES" to all of your questions.

The company is a family run business with 2 brothers from Syria, with construction background, running the entire operation. The company has been in Qatar only since April 2011. Even though they have landed some of the most significant projects in Qatar they lack organization and professionalism. No health care, full 6 day work week, no paid vacation for 1 year and they have hired and fired far too much.

-Working hours was not respected (written 8 hrs, then over ruled to 10 working hrs-6 days a week)
-They dont respect holidays, they call to work for holidays also (Not paid)
-Transferring visit visa to working visa takes very long time.
-Those who work there don't have any insurance or medical since the time they were hired til this time..
-Salary comes on the first week of the month..
-they have good projects but sad to say very unprofessional in terms of managing their people (many good workers have resigned due to this)

dear friend.. may be the company is good. but their treatment is very very bad. one of my filipino friend went there for an interview last day. the appointment was at 10.00 am. he reached in the office at 9.45am. the secretary told him that he has to wait for the driver as he has to report in the site office near dukhan for the interview. at last the driver came at 11.30 and they went at the site. there was a few people were in the group for the interview. actually the site is in side the desert and it is very difficult to reach there. the driver had left after dropping them at the site and he came back after 2hours. these people got ready to go back as the interview was over. the driver asked my friend to report to the administration manager. the administration manager asked my friend to stay there because he has to send some one to the head office in the car. actually all of them got tired because they didn't have the lunch till that time. he noticed this to the administration manager, but his reply was very very rude.. if they start to behave with the people before appointing them... how they can work in this company..?

Cezzzzzy

"Is it same as Al Khayyat Contracting or are these two seperate companies?"

Two seperate entities but same Owners. Al Khayyat managed by the Older Brother and UCC by the younger brother.

"How much a PM should be asking for a Job. Total exp 12 years."

Depends on your capabilities.

Dear Lucky
I'm getting an offer from KCT as PM. Salary QR 25,000.00.
What should I do? How is the company? I have heard not so good stories about KCT / Urbacon here on the forum. Is that True? I want to bring my family also to Qatar. They r processing my Visa now. How much time will they take to get my Residence Permit so that I can bring my family there. plz advice. rgds

Lucky Luciano

Are you related to Diwakar by any chance? I don't know about specialists posting in this forum. Their views are immaterial to me.Processing of Visa is under Qatar Authorities. KCT/UCC cannot do anything about that.

indianfromdxb

I'm not related to Diwakar, nor do I know any?
R u an Indian?
I have been formally offered a job of Package Manager in KCT (not UrbaCon) with salary of Riyal 25000 with medical insurance, tickets n 21 days leave (Qatar labour law, I'm told). My visa is already done.
Keep in mind, I'm from Dubai with total of 10 years of experience.
Kindly advice me if I should take the Offer.
I want to plan accordingly.

Lucky Luciano

If You are settled there don't come here unless you get a big insentive for changing locations. Doha is 10-15 years behind Dubai. You will not get your free lifestyle in Doha.

How is urbacon treating women in site offices? specifically the one in West Bay Private Villa?

Lucky Luciano

Alfred006

Hi lucky. I saw a job opportunity for a Senior Financial Analyst in UCC. I would just like to know if the company is actively expanding through corporate acquisition. Also, in terms of organizational structure, would you know how many person are working in that team.

Thanks.

Lucky Luciano

Please guys, How I am supposed to know about salary scales of individual categories. return tickets and medical is a standard for all companies in Qatar.

jupats2005

Mr. Lucky Luciano. I was hired by KCT as Site Engineer and they already issued a Visa for me. I am currently processing my papers here in the Philippines. I just would like to ask these questions...Are KCT and Urbacon the same?Are they following the Contract/Offer they sent to us? Is the Salary released on-time? Please give me answers to these questions...

Nabeel marath
