Please use your brain. Why should a company which didn't hire you yet ask for your bank datas in you home country? Doesn't make amy sense, right?

If hired in the UAE you have to open a bank account where your salary will be paid to. Inside UAE no swift code needed.

Thanks for your doubts. Please read company's profile:

I am working for the company at the moment,and you damn be sure that you have missed your chances..If you dont want to give your bank details you are not gonna get paid my friend,simple as that,unless you want to work for free..Open a new account,with no money inside if you are afraid from scams,is that difficult???The company is proper,and have a good reputation in UAE.

I have worked for ATS group Limited before, and you are wasting your time, 1st You will meet Andries Heystek wish is the HR manager he will promise you the world and nothing will be delivered... Keep in mind you will be working on a Islamic country ( wish is a lovely experience ) so much to learn for those the haven't been over seas... but this company hired lots of Israelis and they flight them on private jets all the time.... they all said are from Brazil they will be like working for a dictator...... If you do get hired there make sure you tell Mr Shahid ( wish is the most arrogant Indian you will ever met..... List goes on It's a huge no no keep that in mind

They called me too, but Im based in Dubai, I've been interviewed by Jasmine Nanda and now 2nd interviewed schedule by Lynn Power? I think they're legitimate because they are posting the job in the legitimate job hiring site.

ATS Abu Dhabi is a legitimate company who have resources based elsewhere in the Middle East and USA. The Abu Dhabi HQ is based in the Sky Tower over several floors on Reem Island about 2/3 miles from Abu Dhabi City Centre.

The work they carry out is related to installing and maintaining Security systems on and around Oil Installations both on land and at Sea (Rigs). They also maintain the road cameras/security systems you see around the major towns within the emirate of Abu Dhabi.

They are a good company to work for but I would strongly recommend that you negotiate a very/extremely good pay/expenses deal at the start of your employment because there will be no new pay deals/increase once you are employed by them.

If you are unfortunate enough to work for a section called field engineering expect long hours and substandard living conditions when living away from home.

Some of the comments above may seem a bit harsh but I can understand why they have been written.

At the end of the day its your decision if you want the job or not.

oh and as to why they require your bank details before you join it is simply because your first, second and maybe third pay check will be paid into your home bank since it can take time to set up a bank account in the UAE.

My advice is that if your single go for it. BUT think twice if you are married ..... especially with kids.
