[QUOTE=captmrb;30595]This would explain why you failed the background check when I put a good word in for you at Transocean. Not cool.[/QUOTE]
The guy that went for a swim was drunk and high.
The CG was never notified because the last thing Levacc wanted was them stepping on board one of those tugs or any kind of official investigation into what was really going on behind the scenes.
If I failed TO’s background check it was because I forgot to take my deer rifle out of my pick up truck before crossing into Chicago.
However, what is “not cool”, is that you are discussing private and priveledged information such as this on an open forum.
I do appreciate you putting in a “good word” for me, which by the way didn’t mean squat to your port captain, but that does not give you the right to violate privacy act laws.
If you really felt the need to get this off your chest, I would have respected you much more and also guarded your privacy if you would have sent me a private message instead.
Now you have started something you did not bargain for.
We will see what your port captain thinks of you discussing private information such as this on gcaptain.
You will not be able to hide behind your “captmrb” screen name by the time my lawyer gets done having a field day with this one.
Thanks for the free payday. Thanks to you I will probably make more from TransOcean in a year or so than you will make in what is left of your probably short carear with them.
And as you pointed out I am not even an employee nor will I ever be apparently.
Furthermore, under the privacy act I should have been provided with a copy of this report if it had any kind of negative impact on me being considered for a job.
So in addition to your HR department discussing private information with you, an unauthorized third party, they have also broken the law by not providing me with said “background check”.
And thanks to you running your head I now have this all in writing.
What I do find amusing is that I have renewed my ticket with the CG twice since I was arrested for having a deer rifle in the city of Chicago.
At least they gave me a chance to explain myself for this simple mistake.
Where as your company has so many “eager beavers” standing in line for a job where guys like you are going to talk down to them and crap on them until the make “high captain”, that they can just toss a guy’s file in the trash can for a minor mistake he made over ten years ago even though he has not gotten in trouble before or since in his entire life.
I am not hurting by far bubba. I have been in the marine industry since 1993 and have been a licensed officer for 14 years.
I have not made less than 150K in the last 4 years.
After further consideration, I realized that I did not have the patience to put up with dropping back down to AB and having to kiss the ring finger of a snob like you to spend years being talked down to and treated like a second hand citizen and be lucky to ever actually be able to bid for a 3rd officer’s spot on one of your over rated video game ships.
You guys are nothing but over paid baby sitters that spend your entire watch playing a video game.
There is no real challange in your job and that is why so many of you bore so quickly and have so much time to surf gcaptain and run your heads.
I could train a monkey to do your over paid job by hanging a bannana on a string in front of him just out of his reach.
I challange any one of you guys to hold my watch for 15 minutes without screwin the pooch.
If you ever do come into port you have a high dollar pilot doing the job that you should be able to do yourselves but can not be trusted to do without incuring major damage to the vessel or facility.
And all that high tech gear doesn’t add up to a hill of beans when it comes time for a real boat handler to take the wheel.
You guys can’t find your butts with both hands unless you have no less than 2 assist tugs to hold your hands all the way in and out of the dock.
Were this country to ever have another major war where they needed to call upon captains like you to command vessels to actually do something important this country or the one on the other end would be in deep trouble.
Although some may consider this a “flame post” I call it the truth.
And if I am to be banned from gcaptain for speaking the truth then please first consider how this got started.
As with most other threads on here one subject about scumbag head hunters quickly got changed int a personal attack on one’s character.
Captmrb brace for impact. This is far from over and when I get done with you you’re gonna need a surgeon to remove your foot from your big mouth.
