I met him and he seemed a nice enough guy at interview. In Al Khafji I think teachers pay is around the $59k mark, $3k for flights and 50 days a year for holidays. Since its the same company the pay may be similar.

MOD edit for names

Housing included in that quote? Scott's quote of 19000 SAR a month seems ok if there is company housing or an extra amount equivalent to 3 x basic salary is given. 3x19000SAR=57000 SAR per year.

I hear now that this SR19,000 includes an allowance for housing. NOT a good deal !

I knew a guy there a few years ago.

Around $50 - $55k annual salary. Housing in compound weith a choice to relocate to Bahrain with a gemerous allowance. Company car

Hard work though. You earn your money as in most places in KSA. 5hrs contact per day plus cover. Morale was low. But my info is out of date. Could be better now.

Seems to be a very high turnover on the tq side at spsp in Khobar due to the usual=stressful and unrewarding teaching I suspect. The new centre is really in the middle of nowhere and doesnt seem like a great deal considering the hardship=an industrial polluted wasteland with some sand....but not much breatheable air......

It would be great to get some current info on this outfit as they are now recruiting and I am considering a position there.

High turnover of teaching personnel. Better to go for a place that holds on to its teachers

Due to illness I couldn't take up the post, which was in al khafji, they found a replacement quickly enough so some souls are braving it for the loot.
