Knocking on Doors in Louisiana

Many would say this is a step in the right direction for everyone involved in the oil and gas industry. Last few years have definitely fallen behind, but many are much more optimistic in the future years. Wishing everyone the very best in 2018!

It’s good news, and certainly a long overdue step in the right direction, but nothing to get too excited about.


#1563

there is no ‘work on the board’ as third mate!


#1564

State ferries are dying for mates. There are jobs out there until the right one comes along.


#1565

which state Ferries? Do they pay enough for you to move and pay for 2 households?
My comment was strictly in regards to jobs ‘on the boards’ with the officers unions for 3rd mates. I’ve been checking with AMO, MMP, MEBA since November 2016 and have not had any jobs come up for 3rd mates. If you can find your own first job, then AMO (might) have work for you, but you can’t tell until after you’ve been on a ship for them. I thought the idea of joining was so THEY would find a ship for you! Times are tough offshore. Worst I’ve ever seen it in over 40 years of sailing.


#1566

WA and AK that I know of and “no” to your second question.


#1567

thanks for the info. I live in TX, so sounds like an impossibility. Can’t manage that kind of commute.


#1568

Txdot runs small ferries at the Lynchburg crossing in the ship channel and larger ones at Galveston/Bolivar. Kirby runs a couple of hundred boats have their own training facilities in Channelview.


#1569

thanks, I don’t have a towing endorsement. I got lucky and got a call yesterday. Heading offshore for a 2-3 week temp job tonight.

Good News, Today!
A mariner checked in on Sunday and went out looking for a job, this morning.
Happy to say he was hired, today, with a great company.
Went through his physical, today, and will take the next few steps tomorrow and the rest of the week.

Last week, a mariner that stayed with me many years, ago, and worked himself up the ladder to a 1600 ton master level captain, with a great company, also, stayed with me, and visited all of the companies in the area. He was offered a position, much to his surprise.

So, job openings have begun for some.

If I can be of help to any of you, please keep in mind that I still offer a discounted rate of $75/night if you are staying at least 4-5 nights. Please call me at (985) 537-6773 or email me at claudettelp@charter.net to reserve a room.
As always, I suggest you check in on a Sunday between 3:00 and 5:00pm, if you want my assistance with anything.

Been a while since we’ve seen a post of this nature. Congrats.

Hello! Just wanted to contribute some info on this thread to help out on the job search for those interested. I just recently got hired down here and part of the process of this experience for me was booking a room at Ms. Claudettes bed and breakfast. If your coming down & planning on doing some door knocking i would suggest staying with Ms. Claudette for a few reasons.

If your new to the game like i am or even just out of the loop, Ms Claudette will help point you in the right direction to give you the best chance possible on getting hired.

Her B&B is located in an ideal spot as your home base for job searching.

She keeps a clean and tidy place that is comfortable, and affordable.

Im not sure if the market is picking back up or not but i would say it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on for a while. Ive waited years for my opportunity to come down here. While the market was slow i would work on what credentials i could so my chance was as good as it could be when it came. And now its here!

Good luck to all, as for me, im excited to be starting the next big adventure!

It was a pleasure having met you, Coop, and having you as a guest, here. I am very happy for you in this next passage of life. I have faith in you that you achieve many more goals in this new career. Thanks for choosing to stay here. It’s been quite a while since I have had mariners stay at my B&B, but 2 successful mariners in 2 weeks means the market is slowly moving ahead. Wishing everyone the very best.
