I worked out in Turkey for 4 years (on and off) initially I worked without a permit - dodging police every day, it wasnt something I would ever tell anyone to do. I then married and had my kimlik card which enables you to work in Turkey indefinitely so I was ok. However, I worked very long hours, 7 days a week, sometimes I got paid, most of the time not - there would always be reasons why they never had any money etc etc...and you find yourself changing jobs every month or so and nothing is guranteed.
Although a massive eye opener and I never regretted a moment - I wouldnt do it again. Your body is just not meant to be punished like that - we think we have it bad here in the UK, think again we are actually very lucky.
Also, its hard for a Turkish person to get employment, so if there was any jobs going they would probably have first refusal.
