I have been offered a job in Dubai for a salary of 4000 AED. the profile is of retail store manager. they are providing individual accommodation, medical, food, insurance etc. please suggest me if this is the manageable salary in dubai for a single person. or should i ask for a raise in monthly salary if possible?
#james bond on Aug 14, 2014 :
You should check a few websites before accepting a job. 800 aed for a taxi driver is nothing in my view.
I have not accepted a job where i got the offer for 18000 aed which is just acceptable but not the best in my view.

#AUbrey Serranicle Jones on Nov 14, 2012 :
Hello,

This is good site, where I live in Addison Navarro, the food price is very expensive costly. I am paying 33 AED for 1 egg, not 1 dozen, just 1!

This is costly food price, Milk is sold to us at 100 AED per liter, if not spoil, if spoilt then 5% discount is given, but no body can use, what to do.

The average cost per person per month for food expenses is coming upto 3000 AED, too expensive, so most people are being starving, including skunk the man eating nai!

This skunk is feared by everyone in colony. It will beat you and eat you.
