Well done to your DH. I did forecast to-ing and fro-ing on the contract, but that's the case with a lot of companies here.
Hi Lola31,My dh has been offered the position but we are still trying to negotiate the contract. There seems to be a lot of back and forth going on. Not sure at this stage what is going to happen.How is your husband finding it down there? If you'd like to chat privately let me know and I'll put up my email address.It'd be nice to speak to someone in relatively the same position. edited by Mandzzz on 01/05/2012
Hi Mandzzz,How did your DH get on? My DH has been working for that company now for about a month. We are from UK and I'll be moving out end June.
Thank you for the reply Aprilflower! My dh had his interview today so I guess we will see what happens. Thanks for the tip re the contract as well. Hopefully we can hammer out something good or we won't be relocating.
Don't worry, they are legit, my DH had an interview unfortunately wasn't successful, but our friend works for them. They are tight lipped due to the nature of the work. I think our friend is on quite a good package with bonus, but I know he has to work for it! Good luck to your DH. NB ironing out contract/package may take a bit of to-ing and fro-ing!
Thanks for the reply Desertboot. Yes we have done some research and there are some companies using this name that appear to be scams. The Ats group my dh is being interview by is a European company with headquarters in Zurich. He has had 2 phone interviews and is now being flown to AD all expenses paid, so we are thinking it's legit. I found another post about the same company on the other expat forum and apparently they are dealing with classified information so it's hard to find any information on the company online. I was just hoping I might come across someone who may know someone who works for them. It's a little head wrecking that they won't reveal the package before he flies there for the interview. Fingers crossed it's all for real!
Don't want to scare you, but any search on them comes up with scam enquiries and a search on the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce business register says that they have 1 employee, not alot of capital and are British Virgin Island based.If they are legit make sure you get a contract in English and go through it well before agreeing to anything.
Hi all, I'm new here. Just wanted to say hello and ask if anyone here knows of anyone working for ATS Group ltd? My dh is interviewing with them this weekend in AD. We currently live in Ireland and if all goes well are looking to relocate with our 4 year old son. The issue is the company is being very tight lipped about everything. Just curious if anyone knows anything about this company or if they offer decent packages? Also if you don't mind me asking a few other questions:1. Is it too late now to try and get our son into a nursery starting in the Autumn term? He attends play school 5 days a week here, and I'm keen to keep him in something next year and then start him in school when he turns 5. 2. Our son has a lot of allergies and health issues and we are currently still waiting to be seen by an immunologist and ENT. I've seen a few posts about good doctors in AD and I'm just wondering what wait times are to see specialists there?I have lots of other questions but I will wait until after the interview and see how things go. Just wanted to say thanks in advance, I've already found these forums very helpful! :-)
