Working in Afghanistan, very stressful.
Site Lead/Lead Engineer (Current Employee) – Kabul, Afghanistan – 22 March 2014
Wear body armor and carry weapons everyday. One of the few contractors authorized to be armed. Have traveled to 17 sites around the country. Been shot at many times. 10.5 hour time difference to the States makes it hard to get reach back support. The people are great to work with. I am the Lead Engineer and serve at the O-4 level at the US Air Force Wing in Kabul. Lots of meetings, brief the Commanding General almost daily. Currently managing $1.2 billion in construction.
Food is good, housing in OK
work 7 days a week, 12 hours days with little time off
