Re: 2nd Class motor Engineer

Ask them what the rate of pay is. Strange how most people trying to attract include that little tidbit

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Don't know if anybody can corroborate this, but I was told by a reliable source today that Cadets graduating now are exempt to 1st Class, whereas those that did the cadet program earlier are not. If you do not do the math papers in a reasonable time, ie before they scrap them, you will have to retur...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

I am amazed at the amount of " I did it the hard way, you should have to as well" going on in this post!! It is not the point of how you got your licence, it is the point of how it was rescinded. Today, I personally know of several people who have appealed this and managed to retain these ...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Firstly, some people were in the process of writing the exams when the system changed. It is not a case of wanting something for free, it is a case of being told to stop doing that, no need anymore, here's your licence, go get a job. Then 6 months later, give us back your licence, lose your job, go ...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Spoke to Elizabeth in HQ in Ottawa last night, and my issued licence is now cancelled. As will many others be shortly. This is ridiculous. When I asked how they managed to screw this up so badly she answered "don't know that's what we are trying to figure out". Anybody know a good Class ac...

Re: CoC as per STCW 2010 Manila Convention

Being one of the people that was affected by this I will weigh in. Whilst I agree that the new rules were not the best changes to the system. I am one who gave up on the old exams, and applied for the new licence. Based on my licence being issued in early Nov I accepted a position as Chief Engineer,...

On top of the low salary, you will have to pay your own travel, and wait 3 months to be paid for travel days. Long hours of work, very limited amount of food on board the vessel. Cook is given $15 per day per man to feed crew.

Seadrill

If you look on INDEED.CA, or Jobsinnl.ca, or many other forums you will see a list of jobs advertised for Seadrill. They are offering good salaries, and benefits, but, does anybody know of anyone actually getting these jobs? It seems they are constantly advertising the same positions, but nobody get...
