Beware of unscrupulous recruitment agents
One of the sad facets of expatriates working in Saudi Arabia is the problem faced by literally thousands of underpaid and fleeced people, most of them from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Nepal. It is not clear whether it is poverty or ignorance or both, which drives people to work in Saudi Arabia for a pittance.
Job title, salary and position
If you are a potential expatriate planning to work in Saudi Arabia, the first thing you should remember is to forget your job title / designation you were holding in your current company in your home country.
Working hours and leave in Saudi Arabia
An employee working in Saudi Arabia is not supposed to work continuously more than 48 hours a week without a day off.
