all is well
Electrician Technician (Former Employee) –  DubaiFebruary 4, 2019
first time job experience is well done in this firm.
Best Companies for Customer Service Representative.
Of course, if you have a personal connection with someone you trust who works at a company, you might wonder whether you still need to look at employee reviews. The answer may be personal and depending on the relationship you have with this contact, but at the same time, it can't hurt to get a sense of what others say. If for no other reason than to assess morale and the overall feeling of others you'll be working with, it's helpful to get a sense of what other people are saying. Moreover, there are certain situations where your contact may know less about what it's like to work in a particular department or within a certain functional area and a job review can help you fill out missing details from a single third-person account. (In the case of Fairygodboss, you may want to hear from a particular group of people specifically, e.g. women or other minority groups of employees)

E&I QC Inspector (Former Employee) –  DubaiMay 9, 2018
Work start at 7 am till 3 pm . I learned a lot regarding inspection and supervise the quality standard of company. Management is very strick with regards of Opponent Company and with zero tolerance in safety. Have a nice and good work place and they are concern of there employees and employer. The hardest part of the job is during the rough sea season. The enjoyable part of the job is during the team building.
Pros
Free accommodation, transportation and meals.
Cons
6 working days
