MSC 8/18 Posting


#1

Anyone hear anything back from them yet from the 8/18 posting for 3rd mates or engineer? application has read “pending rating” for last three weeks.


#2

I heard they had like 200 someodd people apply but were only gonna take like 16.


#3

And that’s 32 too many. Over staffed and can’t place all the ones currently sitting in the pool. One 3rd recently came on said they sat in the pool for 6 months, after all they classes they needed and wanted. Few leave the ship out of fear of not getting back on one.


#4

Sounds like the complete polar opposite of how it used to be sailing with msc…from the horror stories I have heard of getting no relief.


#5

16 3rd Mate or Engineer?


#6

Mates I think.


#7

Oh they may have plenty of people but that still doesn’t mean the detalers are going to get you a timely relief. Learned this one briefly the hard way - major lesson learned after my drillionare days :wink:


#8

I applied as well. Called help line the other day they said they had way more applications than they expected. Hope they speed up a bit after the interviews.


#9

I would suspect anyone hired from This period won’t be seeing a ship until at least March of 18.


#10

I heard from a buddy there for 7 years now that they plan on opening up second mate and chief mate slots sometime in the next 6 months


#11

Did the help center offer a timeline for the interviews? They keep telling me to just call every two weeks if they don’t call or email for an interview in the meantime.


#12

Same for me. No real timeline. I have a recruuter I’ve been working with I’ll see if he can get any better info. I expect not but no harm in trying


#13

Oh one other thing I forgot to mention my application did get rereviewed on Monday. The only reason I know is even after they cleared it back in August they missed somethings that needed adjustment.


#14

Do you guys have any info about 3rd A/E? When are they going to start hiring or interviewing? I also put in laat 8/18 but haven’t heard anything from them… my status is " pending rating"


#15

Same.”pending rating”.


#16

Nothing new on my application. I talked to the recruiter, they don’t have any timeline.


#17

Any update with 8/18 application…


#18

None for me. I’m gonna call again on Monday morning.


#19

Just called in, pending rating


#20

Recently got called for setting up an interview for 3rd AE. Anyone else starting to get called?
