    He's pretty right. There's not much room to negotiate.

    I totally second this! Kuwait is not the place to be long term. I would say use it to get yourself out here so that you can jump out to other places in the Middle East/Africa. Even getting groceries is a hassle because you either have to ask to be driven or get a taxi until the visa is processed. Ordering food is easy but expensive.

    Hey WTRWLKR,

    Are you still working with vectrus? If so, I have some questions just got my interim security clearance (SF312). The facility that will perform the perform the medical exam and administer required shots called to schedule an appointment. Wanted to know what are the next steps at this point?

    Thanks.

    Bet you're glad that wait is over. I'm waiting on my Interim with Vectrus now. My understanding is that once your certs, clearance, and medical/dental are done; Vectrus will provide you dates to go to CRC (assuming your position is still open). Then, you fly out from CRC training to your location.

    Now, here's the million dollar question: How long did you wait for your Interim, and did the security manager just send you an email saying you received it?

    Hey Daniel J,

    Thanks for the post. I have some specific questions. Here's what I've done so far:

    01) I had my technical interview back in August 2017 and passed,
    02) received my offer letter less than a week later.
    03) Submitted all paperwork (SF86 via eQuip with fingerprint cards),
    04) hirerite completed my employment verification successfully.
    05) Just yesterday 12/11/2017, I got my interim security clearance notification and submitted SF312 (NDA).
    06) The facility that will perform the perform the medical exam and administer required shots called to schedule an appointment.

    What I wanted to know is based on your recent experience what are the next steps at this point and how close am I to selecting the CRC date?

    Thanks,
    ALJAHA2

    It was just over 4 months from the time my SF86 was submitted to getting email notification from the vectrus recruiter and security manager yesterday.

    Hey jp5130,

    This is for the Service Desk Admin (Afghanistan). As far as the interview I felt it was general in order to get a feel for the candidates knowledge of basic troubleshooting in computing environment.

    Man, the recruiter pulled the trigger on your medical as soon as you met the clearance requirement. Sounds like they are processing you as fast as they can. Unless something crazy comes back with that, I bet you'll be in CRC sometime in January.

    What does the medical consist of? Do you have to bring any medical records? Do they do drug testing? If so is it urine or hair?

    Hi Sloan54

    I am a local hire of Vectrus here in Kuwait and will be joining them at the last week of this month. I do not know how is the process in the US but over here, you will be doing the physical check up - hearing test, eye test, weight, blood, urine, X Ray, BP and dental all together at one day. I guess the urine one was for drug testing. But before that, you have to fill up around 15 pages of Pre-Deployment Medical Paper w/c will be sent to you by Occu Med.

    After you had completed and pass these tests, an email will be sent to you to have your TB skin test. You will also be asked if you had immunizations in the past. If so, you need to send copies of your immunization records to them. I had no records with me so I had to undergo 7 vaccines.

    And another thing, you won't miss a thing culturally by going overseas, especially in these troubled times in the fairy kingdom.

    Chenega?

    Seems that the backlog is slowly clearing up. A lot of people here had to get adjucated on their vacations.

    Alijah,

    After you do the check the box stuff, you'll schedule a time to go to CRC.

    If anyone is looking for referrals, drop me a line: littlebit@gmail.com

    The US has culture? I thought it was all fast food. Which DFACs serve in the short order line

    I dont miss the US one bit. Ill wait it out, invest, save, and after America is over her mid life crisis, Ill consider moving back.

    Just curious Little Bit, would you get tax to hell when you come back to the US or are taxes taken out during your oversea tours?

    Looks like I'll be back on my way rather soon. I just need to do my physical and set a CRC date. I said I'd never go back but the money is way better this time as a Net Admin with the 70% bump.

    I exempt to $100K, and tax the remainder.

    Just dont get fired or head home longer than 35 days.

    As an Edit: Someone things Im giving false info.

    Last I checked you can claim tax exemption up to $102K, afterwhich, you can continue to go exempt, but you will need to pay taxes on anything over $102K.

    Most people opt to have taxes taken out year round, some will do the exemption all the way through, and pay back taxes, some do up to the first $102K.

    Hope this helps.
