Alsalam is an aircraft company in KSA that provides maintenance to the civilian and the Royal Saudi Air Force. They have a very centralized (Top-Down) management approach. There is little if any room for advancement. Alsalam provides great benefits for American Workers, however, they provide only partial benefits for TCN's. As a recruiting manager, I was sold during the interview on their willingness to support my recruiting initiatives based on my 16 years in the industry and a widespread network of contacts. However, their approach to recruiting was to do it 100% by phone and on the internet. They refused to allow recruiting to build the relationships to obtain the most qualified applicants. The company has a very high attrition rate to include Saudi Nationals because of the management approach.
