  • The ability to choose a few different schedules to be gone on the boat.

What I like about the company

Traveling to new locations is definitely a plus of the job. You never have to worry about getting to work because you stay on the boat for twenty eight, plus days. You get three free meals a day, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The meals are always cooked and ready for you when you get off a shift watch so you never have to worry about cooking. They hire a cook that stays on the boat with you. Every Friday is fish, shrimp, chicken days. Every Saturday you get a steak and a bake potato if that’s the choice you choose. You never have to work longer than six hours. The shifts are six hours on and six hours off on a 24 hour schedule. We call this the square watch. The time off that you get is nice because it is two weeks straight that you don’t have to worry about work so you can do whatever you want freely. Another positive thing about the company I work for is that if you want extra money you can stay on the boat for as long as you want. The people on the boat becomes like family because you’re with them all the time and they always watch your back and are all about safety. We joke around, help each other out and teach each other when working together. The beds are extremely comfortable and they provide all the essentials for it. The bed, blanket, sheets and pillow. You automatically get a thirty dollar pay a day raise after ninety days you’re working with the company. Also after ninety days of working with the company you get all the benefits that the rest of the employees have. This includes health insurance, dental insurance, life insurance and vision insurance. Another plus of the company I work for is they give you mileage pay for when you’re driving to the office to be picked up by the crew van and taken to the boat that you’re assigned to. Another perk of the company I work for is that as long as you work hard and pay attention to details it’s easy to move up and if you are able to move up all the way to the wheelhouse, the pay is extremely good.

What I dislike about the company

The being gone so long and short time off.

Company Culture

Company culture is about making money at all cost. Safety and people are disposable.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There is a bias against older military veterans. Attitude range from indifference to negative hostility.

Office / Work Environment

Office environment is hostile. People try to get people first so they can have an inside position for possible promotion. Relations within the organization is toxic.

Handicapped Accessibility

On Shore office facility is not handicap compliant.

Workplace Safety

Warehouse does not meet OSHA safety standards for safe operations.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Replace Harahan Human Resources department. Unqualified and politically motivated to the VP. Follow hiring and firing policies to the letter to prevent the rapid turn around of employees. Enforce the training program for fidelity to stop the abuse of young deck hands getting steam rolled and improperly trained.

What I like about the company

They have good potential to be a great company with solid company policy

What I dislike about the company

They don't follow their policies. From top and down established policy in HR and Crewing and Contracts offices do not follow the company's written polices concerning employees. Predatory office environment with weak communication with the building.
