They do not have a good reputation.Put it this way - they are not caring employers. They will chisel you for every riyal they can. You can do better. You will also probably find that if you are in KSA with Al Rajhi they will refuse to give you a Letter of No Objection when you lave. That means you cannot take up another job inKSA for 2 or 3 years.

It depends on how much you need a job.

I had worked for Aramco through HAKA 3 years ago. Any idea how they would compare? (Aramco will not re-hire former employees.)

Aramco now seems to have stopped direct hire. they use sub-contractors like Al-Haka. Even the worst of these is MUCH better than Al-Rajhi.

Thanks again Scot47 for your time and effort. You wouldn't happen to know anyone who is or has worked for them? (for an email contact perhaps).
