Mercy Ships


#1

Anybody know anything about Mercy ships and how it might be to work for them? Any experiences/stories?


#2

A good friend sailed for them. You pay your own way, can bring your family along, and collect U/L seatime while doing good works.


#3

So there’s no salary? I saw a job posting that said the salary was negotiable.

If there is any its vary little.
At most they might send an OS to school to get his AB.
I looked into it when I was an OS, seeing that there was a sarly for ship’s personel. I would have been happy with about a $1000 a month to just cover basic expense, but they didnt do anything.
They are a good organization and do a lot of good, but I feel the postions are geard more for those who are retired but dont want to sit at home all day, or are indpendantly wealthy.
