Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

How is Algeria - It is very nice and friendly but not many people will be able to speak English so I hope you are fluent in French or Arabic. There are nice places to visit in the north and in the Sarah desert.
The food is excellent with grills, sea food and sweets in fact Algerians love food and no its not too spicy and not like Indian food.

Hi Ashutosh,

For more information about OHL just do a Google search on "Obrascon Huarte Lain" including the quote marks. If you just search OHL you’ll get the Ontario Hockey League which isn’t too much use.

hi

1. How is Algeria
this is what i call a vague question, if u do mean security conditions it is rather good.

2. How is the weather
Algeria is a huge country, that depends on where u will works
3. What about foods
the food here is very spicy, i guess as an Indian u will feel like home.
4. What abot the working culture
what do u expect from an ex-socialist country ? seriously the working culture will be the one of your company ( a Spanish one btw)
5. The company is OHL so how is this company?
as i said before all i know about this company, that it is from Spain, and they got a contract in the north east of Algeria to build a 100 km railways,

for the records the working language here is French, as u may know, we speak Arabic here in Algeria, i think it should be ok fo u , go ahead, and god luck

feel free to ask what u want

The best is to surf the web for answers. Just type in Algeria in a search engine and read the peoples Blogs articles this will give you an idea. Also www.wikipedia.com and others

Unfortunately this site has changed a lot over the years and you will notice that rarely anyone gives their opinions anymore. That is because if you do all of a sudden you get branded a non believer, racist and all sorts of other things by certain members waiting to pounce on someone’s opinion. It is sad but it is true.
