Anyone hiring 4th engineers?

Postby cato » Mon Mar 09, 2015 7:32 am

I cant seem to find a company that is hiring 4ths or even motormen. They all want 3rds or higher however I need more hours before I can write.
Ive sent my resume to every company I can think of but no luck. Anyone know any companies hiring? I live in N.S.

Have you tried McKeil? Sure a first class is great, but we have all started at the bottom, and McKeils doesn't seem to mind too much. Coast Guard...

CG is a Pit of despair for everyone, they fall under Treasury Board rules so they can only hire casuals for 3 cycles a year, no matter how good the casual is. Pay is lower then elsewhere. In consequence they are always looking.

Keep in mind that if you sign on as a rating, qualifying service for 3rd Class is 1 day in 3, to a maximum of 180 days. You need 6 months IN CHARGE OF A WATCH out of a total of 12 months.
