Good Day to you all. I recently accepted a job as a PC Technical Support Specialist in an Australian manufacturing company in Dubai. The starting salary is DH3000 (P45800), accomodation is also provided plus a food allowance of DH200. I only need to go to work 5 days a week which means I will have two day-offs. Since I don't have immense experience working in abroad I decided to grab it. Now my question is, did I get good deal or not? Do you think I will able to save enough with that salary? Is DH200 enough for the food allowance or do I have to shoulder a little bit more? Can I also do part time job since I still have one day to spare without arising any conflict with my current employer? I'm already feeling bad not being able to attend the interview conducted by Al Hammad Hospital (Qatar) coz theyre giving $1450 (P81th) in all successful candidates. I hope some of you living or have lived in the UAE could give me some insight or ideas. Thanks in advance..

Hi there master!!

The DH3000 for a first time in abroad like you, para sa akin, acceptable na yan.
To tell you, I even offered 700+ US $ sa KSA, considering that I have almost 4 years of overseas experience. The highest offer na binigay sa akin sa KSA is 900US $.
About the Hamad, it's normal to feel that way. But then my advise, with you gaining years of overseas experience in the future, you may ask for such amount (even higher pa nga).. So just be thankful na lang at natanggap ka.

Thanks for your reply Master Yoda. I guess it's not such a bad idea after all - me accepting their offer. Oh well, I just hope they would stick to their promise of annual salary increase. :roll:

Am not sure of the standard of living in Saudi/KSA.

Saganang akin lang eh, magandang offer na yan. That depends on how you spend it pero kung matipid ka naman siguradong makakatipid ka.

Anyway, if this is you first jopb abroad you better grab it and bargain later. Most important is, gain more knowledge and experience first.

sana nakatulong ako.

You are lucky my friend! For a first timer like you eh malaki na yun although nung ako eh DH7000 ang offer and ofcourse tinanggap ko. Yung DH200 food allowance eh pwde na yun kung marunong ka magtipid at magluto. Mura naman duon ang food pero mas makakatipid ka kung magluluto ka. By the way, ask ko lang san ka inoferan, sa Dubai na ba or dito pa sa Pinas? Kasi kung sa Dubai ka inoferan eh medyo mababa pa yun if you went there on a visit first. Anyway, just gain experience na lang then later on makipag bargain ka na lang uli..

Gudluck!

Dear Lilet,

I got the offer here in Pinas. I have more than 9 years of exp in my field giving tech support to more than 200 network users. I guess thats why they want me in their company. I should have ask for more - greedy me!Contrary to the other posts ive read, this company wants Filipinos to be their dominant workforce, slowly eliminating other nationality. I dont know what got into the Aussie Boss's head. Looking on the bright side, it kinda helps I guess because it tips the scale in favor of us Pinoys.

DH7000 you say, quite an amount. When was this? Care to share some of the details :D

To Mhelsen,
Ask ko din po kung sa agency ni Mrs. EMY kayo nag-aapply based on your link you've posted?Computer Technician or Technical Support Specialist po ba yung position you've applied for that agency?

Tatan, try mo yung kay Miss Emy. I think may opening sila sa Qatar para sa tulad na job position na hinahanap mo, urgent yon. Ok din sa Qatar, hindi ko lang alam kung magkano offer nilang sahod. Wala na kasi yung sa Company na inaplayan ko tapos na hiring at marami pa yung nasa waiting list para sa Tech Support. 2 tao lang kinuha nila don pareho pang pinoy.

Ganun ba, sana magkita na lang tayo don. Baka this August or September ang dating ko don kc sabi ng Agency nagamit daw lahat yung 25+ visa ng Company. Nagrequest pa daw ng additional 70+. Hirap kumuha ng visa ngayon kc daw yung mga PANA ibinebenta din nila sa kapwa nila indian. Good Luck na lang sa iyo at balitaan mo ako pag-andun ka na.

HI!... gud evening to all!...

i was given a copy of the contract offer from a furniture company as a salesman in Doha this aftenoon and i have til lunchtime tomorrow to sign the contract. just wanted to ask some assistant if the offer given to me is reasonable enough.. here is the breakdown of the said contract..

basic salary 1900

food allowance 350

telephone allowance 150

representation allowance 150

other perks is the free lodging and the transportation to & from the ofc.

and now im having 2nd thoughts of signing the contract since i have spoken with the employer 2 nights ago (manila time) he said that the salary that i wanted was quiet closed to their offer. but, it was quiet different when i read the contract... i was asking for 2500 + allowances. kindly give me an advice so i could be more confident enough if i could huggle - up for a much better remuration package.

tahnk you very much!
