Do a search on SBC. I think you may think twice about working for them. Working for PNU is not too bad. I worked there and I enjoyed it, however, you really need to have the right employer.

Better suicide instead of accepting job with SBC. They are on of the recruiters who even don't care to pick up from the airport.

In short i just explain what i experienced with them...

Last year when i was hired by them, after waiting 2 months for the Saudi Visa when i arrived in Saudi they gave me a nasty surprise. Luckly my friend was working in King Saud University so she accomodate me for a night and i returned back the other day.

Better you apply directly to the university, contractors are always a bad news except few.

For those of you who, despite the warnings, still plan to head to the Kingdom to work for SBC on a business visit visa, be aware that their current job ad states, "Iqamah holders WILL KEEP THEIR PASSPORTS (their caps, not mine). Business visa holders can obtain their passports within one day." This means they plan to illegally keep your passport---your sole form of official identification---during the time you're illegally working for them. Hmm... Still wanna work for them?

The word on the street here at PNU is that SBC is only hiring people who qualify for the iqama. All the SBC people I work with have one.
