Re: Engineers for CCG

If you care to you can read back through some of my replies to your question and my dealings of 3 years with the "4 o'clock" crowd. Just remember one very important thing THEY are in charge and not you, cross them once and you are finished, they will ignore you, make you jump through stupi...

Re: BC Ferries looking for senior engineers

i hear from friends that BCF are desperate for 1st & 2nd class Coc but when you apply expect to wait 2-3 months before they contact you, then expect the person calling has not even bothered to read you resume (twice they did not know what Coc I had) and then to top it off they might offer you an...

Re: TC 2nd Class needed for ex NTCL operations

Funny thing I contacted Mr. Coady Waaaay back in March after the Guild contacted me, never heard a thing from Mr. Coady for months so I went elsewhere then all of the sudden Mr. Coady contacts me only after he figures it out there is nobody available on a moments notice. Tough luck!!! Also I heard a...

Re: CCG on a hiring spree

REALLY!!!! I applied to the CCG Western Region way back in 2014, the bullshit started right away, I was lied to, had my CoC questioned as to it's validity (TC were not amused), I was given interviews that I never attended (I made a poor impression during the interview I was told) my security clearan...

Re: Canfor looking for TC 2nd Class

They forgot to tell you that you have to pay for your own transportation on your 2 week rotation. As one more cautionary note do not take anything verbally from anyone , if it's not in writing insist upon it, if they won't then run, I was bitten by this twice where I trusted them in my discussions o...

Re: BC Ferries looking for TC 2nd Class in Victoria

I alway have to wonder why BCF even posts these positions here, I applied to them twice and was offered an oilers job, I've had a 2nd's ticket for over 25 years. go figure...

Re: Canfor (BC) in Mackenzie looking for 2nd Class (CE) Williston Transporter

Well here's the final installment on this saga, CANFOR finally decided to not pay any travel costs, downloaded them onto my pay so now my salary is substantially lower. I believe that I was lied to for the last 4 months as they kept telling me that they were working on a solution to the payment of m...

It's slowly sorting itself out but trying to convince a donkey that he's a donkey can be hard :) Part of the problem is the location with no scheduled flights etc.

Re: Jobs at McKeil

I can't say much for McKiels, my job was ok but my supervisor that fired me would only show me the letter from the office that I was fired but it did not show me the letter he sent to the office that got me fired. I agree that I did indeed have 2 beer on a company vessel but the same supervisor that...

Re: Canfor (BC) in Mackenzie looking for 2nd Class (CE) Williston Transporter

Just a little update here. Canfor were in touch with me on a voyage all the way to Siberia and then Tuk. The requirement to live in Mackenzie is a dead issue and as for wages while I won't disclose what they are offering me it is a very substantial daily rate for the C/E's position. The only outstan...

Re: Canfor (BC) in Mackenzie looking for 2nd Class (CE) Williston Transporter

I applied for this job but never heard back from Canfor, probably because I would not move to Mackenzie, BC and for a good reason. I did some research and if what I discovered was indeed correct she had been previously been laid up and is on a 1 year charter to move coal after which her fate is unkn...

Re: McKeil looking for all sorts of people

C/E's duties include and are not limited to cooking, cleaning, painting, line handling, snow shovelling and very little to do with being an engineer.
