    I worked at Obayashi full-time (more than 3 years)


    Experience the construction implementation and supervision for 3 Metro Stations in Dubai. Working with other nationalities help me more considerate and more flexible regarding work implementation.


    Since the project is scheduled in a tight schedule, additional working time was needed. Overtime work was properly compensated. Safety training and tool box talk with managers and workers was conducted on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should consider giving compensation, bonuses after accomplishing and finishing the project on time. Additional training such as quality and safety must also be considered.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
