There’s a reason they have to look for help… It ain’t the working conditions or pay!

Desperation is a stinky cologne!

I will play devils advocate here. If you are new to the board/new mariner then contact the original poster of this thread and good luck.

If you found my post through the search function instead of posting a “how do I get a job, I am just a fresh knucklehead with $300 for a TWIC and an MMC” thread, then you are already ahead of the game. Email the company above, go cut your teeth, and then tell us all about it after you have learned something… Cuz we like gossip… And good luck. And thank you to the original poster for giving new guys a chance.

speaking of longhaul truckdrivers…wheres OICUR12 when you need him? He’s the PERFECT candidate for this one and think of all the great posts of his we’d get to read afterwards about him headbutting some sorry assed fool on the boat and how the guy shit his pants and how he told Joe Boss to go eff himself!

On 2nd thought, think how wonderful it is without OICUR12 here anymore~

NO…DON’T DO IT! This cretin likely offers substandard pay, benefits, living conditions, safety equipment and on and on. To accept employment under his terms not only allows him to continue offering the pile that he does, but also keeps a gyppo like him in business. The scumbag’s day is over, time for real companies with real pay and real benefits to step to the plate.

CUT OFF THEIR AIRSUPPLY BY VOTING WITH YOUR FEET!

I wonder if these are the same Cenac’s that like to “cuddle” with 4 year old boys?

You are out of line.

am I?

Mighty small bayoo down here and everybody’s family one way or da’other

Yes, you are. You are accusing a man whom you have never met of being a pederast just because of his last name. Surely Cenac is a common name of sorts down there. I could care less about whats others with his last name have done.

yeah and in the towing business and in Houma too!

besides never accused T2Cenac of being a pederast at all…just speculating as to the possible connection here with the Arlen “Benny” Cenac, jr. and it is in the public record that a $2M settlement was made even if guilt wasn’t admitted… People in the bayoo don’t give out no $2M unless they know they can’t win in trial (especially if they’ve been doing the dirty with the child’s own dad)!

The Times-Picayune article reports that the company’s website describes Cenac as a “Louisiana entrepreneur, philanthropist and nature lover.” A lover he may well be. According to a March 18, 2006, article in the Houma Courier, Cenac settled a child-molestation civil lawsuit against him for $2 million. According to the Courier report, Cenac was accused by the family of a former employee of molesting their young son over a period of several years. A Lafourche grand jury declined to rule on any of the criminal charges against him, but the family filed the civil lawsuit seeking damages. Cenac denied molesting the boy.

In the civil action involving the child, he admitted that he had been involved in a “consensual sexual relationship” with the boy’s father. So much for the general perception of tugboat company owners as a breed of rock-jawed men ’amongst men!

Cenac’s tender side clearly evidenced itself in discussing the matter. According to the Courier article, when Cenac was asked if he had any regrets, he began to cry. “I’d give my life for that child. I can’t explain it, but that love and relationship was there.’”

If you have a cousin in prison for diddling little boys, should that affect your professional career?

I would say in all likelyhood that they are related. That does not make them the same man.

As for pay and benefits: Maah.
Plenty of folk go to companies like this to get their feet wet and gain some sea time. Some even stay (where do you think their Capts and Mates come from?).

Jus because you can command a quarter million dollars per yer as an uber Captain does not give you liberty to look down your nose at the guys trying to get their foot in the door for $30k a year!

Hey man, nice to see your constructive criticism in this thread.

Appreciate those who were sincere in comments and request as to a position with our company.

As to my relations; our family has been in this industry for a long time and there are three boat companies in our region who’s owners have the Cenac name. Our company is not Cenac Marine Services.

The 21-7 schedule was created for our inland Captains who requested this rotation, and after having to release an individual due to a lack of safety compliance we were looking to fill this same schedule.

I decided to see if this site may be a way to communicate with any “Professional” Mariners that our current Captains and crews may not be familiar with. In the hopes that we may find more skilled crewmembers to asses our growing company.

As for the comments for our working conditions, pay, and benefits; Thanks for requesting the information…Clearly some individuals aren’t the caliber we are seeking.

Care to post what those are exactly here so individuals can make their own determinations as to the quality of compensation you advertise?

…because to persuade a sane man to work 21-7 it must include high-end hookers, alcohol, and a dayrate double the best in the industry.

I love it how the OP felt the need to add this

We ask our employees to always act in a professional manner when working with other members of the company and our customers.

what is that supposed to mean exactly? “We expect them to not vomit on the other crew or charter’s shoes after an all night bender drinking Everclear or its cheap substitutes out of a plastic bottle”

that shit’s shmooouve and if you run out of gas driving home, you can always keep going by just breathing into the air intake!

Damned how I would love to hear the stories the employees of this company might tell!

What do you think is fair pay for the inland tug.? I would not expect a captain on that class boat to make more than $450-$500 a day.
