    Need an advice in employment 5th Mar 18 at 1:52 PM
    Hello there,
    Was looking for international job and recently got an offer from construction company called "Serbska Svaya". Does anyone knows anything about them? Cause google doesn't
    Job offer looks nice, but i'm in doubt.

    2. Where will you be working, what are conditions like in that country?
    3. How long is your contract? who will pay your flights etc?
    4. What currency and when will your wages / salary be paid?
    5. Do you need a work visa for the country you are going to work in? and if so who is going to apply for it / pay the fees?
    6. Who is paying your accommodation ?
    7. Do you speak the language of where you are gonig to? if not how are you going to manage?
    8. What if it goes wrong and you want out, what are the conditions of early termination of work contract?

    Friend of mine got fired from them recently for not following safety rules, management almost obsessed with it. Also, most of them are past middle age and unable to argue with, so be aware. But actually, this friend got pretty upset as they pay good and honest and clear about employment. As he sad, clients are happy with them, but not the employers.

    So your friend did not follow the safety rules, and rather than try to do so, chose to argue about it?

    What a fool.

    I really do understand you scepsis about all of this, but the only thing i could say that they were working on military objects and thats why there is nothing about them. Also, he sad that they don't like nowadays techs and internet as well.
    But still, i'm pretty close to call a bs on that.
    P.S. Agree bout safety and being a fool to argue, somerimes he acts like a cringe teen -_-

    Serbska - If it's from Serbia which it sounds, it would be Srpska
    Svaya - Again the y doesn't exist in Serbian so it would be j ie. Svaja. That word doesn't exist.

    Google does translate this from Lithuanian to "serbs dream". Is it a Lithuanian company? Sounds like a serb nightmare.

    Did a little research with help of friend of mine - in Eastern Europe when you work on military projects especially as top , you have to follow strict and even strange policies of not showing yourself in digital space . Second, they are serbian for sure and word "svaya" exists - it means big wooden or cement plank in building foundation that helps it to be stable. In previous time they were Srpski kup, then Srpski Svaya, then Svaya Group, when my buddy was leaving the company they were just Svaya, he spent there 4 years. And third - all that research have been done in my homie new car, which he bought from his saving, when he used to work there. He is unemployed now, so money came form there for sure and I can sum up that salary there is pretty solid.

    You certainly write in a Slavic style so I will bow to your superior knowledge. However there really isn't a word "svaya" in serbian - the letter y doesn't exist and svaja isn't a word. Is this a translation from cyrillic that is being misinterpreted? The closest word to svaya is sva!!!273;a (if MSE can't display that it's pronouced sva-dja) and pleasingly appropriately means a quarrel.
