[QUOTE=MarcDS;39342]Thanks Jeffrox. With that information, I will definitely hold out until they reopen OS.
One further question as to MSC’s financial requirements. It seems that your past financial records are part of the hiring requirements. Does anyone think I will have an issue if I have a past bankruptcy (maybe 4 years old), but have no current debts?[/QUOTE]
Before anything else, I would like to introduce my self first. My name is Cris and currently living in Hawaii with my wife and a father of 4 wonderful kids. I am very glad to see this forum because I have some concerns about the employment with MSC. I used to work in a cruise ship as a cook last 2006 here in Hawaii and I see it very interesting to be on a ship, but that time I never knew that MSC ever existed until I met my wife. She was a Deck Apprentice with SIU and it turns out that her brother works with MSC and her father is a retired BosunMate also with MSC. To make the story short, I am interested to join the fleet, but at the same time I am having concerns with the employment process because of my unsettled debts. I am currently paying it off already for me to apply with the company. My concern is, is there any chance that I can get hired even though my debts are not yet totally paid off?And how long does the hiring process takes?And do you guys have any advice when it comes to my concerns???
