I read that the salary is 43k. If true I don’t know how you can live on that in the NYC area.

Can anyone verify?

Its true. You’ll be able to live check to check the rest if your life.

Wow. A place that pays less than N0AA. Hooda thunk it?

All NYC employees who work in the maritime sections (DOT-S.I. Ferry and DEP-Sludge Tankers) are grossly underpaid.

Hey congrats!!!

That stinks. They (the city gov) ought to be ashamed.

Base pay is horrible just like many other NYC agencies, but like most agencies, the money is made on overtime, shift differential, holiday pay and some other incentives. I have a friend who works on the Staten Island Ferry and the DEP boats who has verified some of the questions. Another issue you will run into is when it is time to upgrade your license. Just because you upgraded your license doesn’t mean you will be paid more. There is civil service rules that come into play and can get complicated. There is plenty of Mates, Captains, and Deckhands. There seems to be a shortage of engineers always. Look on DCAS, there is always a promotional exam for engineer for the Staten Island Ferry.
