I am looking for a change of pace and am interested in transistioning from a seagoing engineering position in the GOM up to the Great Lakes for a few years. I called the AMO, filled out all of the necessary paperwork and was told when (if at all) to possibly expect a call from the local dispatcher at the onset of the season. They explained that they link you up with a Company whom they are affiliated with and if all works out you get directly hired by that company.
My question is if you get hired, could you lose your position due to a seniority issue? I checked the website and couldn’t find the verbiage. I’m guessing that you can’t since you work directly for a company but aren’t sure.
