Default One setp towards oz, five back .....

So, was on the phone with corp office today. To transfer with the visa the companies has to pay me a salary of a store manager..... so they only have 5 slots and those go to store managers. So only 5 people from the US transfer. The rest (included is me) would have to move down there on our own, get our own work visa and then apply and hope I still get the job. Long story short nothing paid for and not 100% you get the job. I feel this is a big risk. 15k for dogs, 5k we will say to move some items maybe? 1700 x2 for flights.... and all this for a 30-40k salary? To big of a risk. Half of me wants to just do it and move down and the other half says f the company, they knew this for 2 months and now call me!

Worst part....a stupid gas tank showed up today to rub it in....

Australia is real pickey about work visas. They don't want you coming in there taking a job an Australian can fill. When you are going down as part of your job, thats one thing, but having to go down with basically no job and apply is another.

The work visa stuff is a pain unless you are being sponsored by a company. Mine is still good for another 2.5 years.
