First, go post an introduction per forum rules. Secondly, it's pretty easy to follow the instructions in the post in regards to how to apply. Reading comprehension must be on the downfall...

Basically, if it says "US Citizen", you are shit out of luck as an Aussie. The biggest problem you will face is that there is a boat load of us around with experience on the circuit looking and very few jobs going these days.

I hope you are enjoy QAS as you will probably be there awhile.

I know you are unable to PM yet, so I will fire one off to you and take this conversation out of this thread to keep the channel clear.

Cheers,

I've worked for Reed. This is a good foot in the door opportunity. This is entry-level.

Pros: Reed pays seven days a week,even if you get a day off. They resolve pay issues within a day.

The work is easy. 8-12 hr shift in a tower or an ECP or roving. I was at MeS. Plenty of time to hit the gym.

The biggest selling point is these contracts don't require prior deployment time, but they count toward deployment time for WPS.

Reed does have contracts for non-US citizens.

Cons: Being entry level they attract retards. Had a few guys claim to be SEALs or Rangers. They didn't last long.

Reed is trying to make money, so they don't buy top of the line gear. Uncle Mike's would be a huge step up compared to the pouches they supplied. The AR-15's were not mil-spec. They wore out just checking chambers. The pistols were M&P9's and developed "dead trigger" (google it.) We had a half dozen pistols in the inventory that didn't work. They supplied surplus IOTV's. On the plus side though they don't care if you use your own plate carrier or pouches.

Lots of Yarpies in REED, got a good mate that was country manager for them in Iraq and Afghanistan. If I remember correctly the owner is a joint Yarpie US citizen.
