[QUOTE=rigdvr;69257]Could be the case, but they did give you a regular paycheck and are a good stepping stone at the minimum for someone to get into drilling…sometimes that’s all one can ask for.[/QUOTE]
Unlike most of their masters, I came with drilling and DPO but you are correct that I did get a first drillship master’s job out of the deal and should also be getting OIM as well. As said earlier, if things had gone differently, I’d likely still be there today but I’ve heard that the NB1 might be having a buttload of troubles so am rather glad to be sitting alongside today again at 55 Gul Road waiting for KSY to finish work on this vessel before delivering it to Mexico in a couple of weeks. Rather easy money right now…nice little Norwegian ship. If a 13y/o ex Norskie is this nice, I can only imagine a brand new one, but CaptRob knows all about that!
To me the biggest thing that I have to shit on about Noble is their HR department. They seem to run that whole company. I have yet to hear of anyone there in operations take a stand against that bunch!
Oh well, somebody else’s throbbing headache now…
