I am a US citizen and have been offered a job by a company in the US. However, they want to give me a US contract and assign me to work at the parent company office space in Germany. So I will be living and working in Germany, but will have a US contract. As an aside, I know all the upper management people in the company, have worked with them in the past, I'm not worried about them scamming me....but I'm not sure how some of this works. I have a few questions:
How backwards is it if they only want to pay me in US dollar?
At one point my contact told me I could be paid in a combination of USD and Euro, the thought being I could put the USD into my savings, and use the Euro to live off. Is this type of arrangement legal? Does it even make sense? We're talking about a job that's prob $150,000 USD/year.
As a US employee I would be given US insurance, and they would supplement it with international insurance. Does anyone have experience with such insurance?
What else am I not worrying about?
