Never Again

I have just spent a little over a year with NBKS - non Auto.

A huge group with little organisation from NBK Holdings - my opinion.

Never again will I return to the ME because of this experience.

They treat all as numbers. Easily replaceable.

The few who are "good guys" are treat like crap.

My Expat package is dire - it was my 1st experience of required "expectations" etc.... and I did a lot to find out accomodation costs etc... before going.

It wasnt enough and the package which looked good sadly was far short of the mark.

I arrived in the country at 3am, was taken to a disgusting apartment (I have pictures). I was collected at 8am to start my day.

I had 2 weeks to locate an apartment - with very little help from the company.

The place I found to be reasonable and of expat standards (a pool gym 3 bedrooms etc...) was over my alotted housing allowance by some way. But there are some things in life you dont give up on and basics, after a hard day at the office is one of these.

Dont get me started on policy, allowances, etc....

For a "family" company, with such a huge standing in Qatar, working for them and the experience within the business was harrowing.

After 8 months of giving it my all, winning new business and making huge net profits I never recieved any thanks, kiss my ass or by your leave.

So.... NBK tarnished my thoughts of ever returning to the ME.

decent bunch of people and a big group. Just make sure you get the best deal out of them, as you won't be able to negotiate it afterwards.

agree with MHA, be careful before signing, contracts here is like a block of ice offered to you that when you get home that ice have melted..

Do read your contract carefully before signing! What you sign may not be what has been promised saying that it's just a formality!
