Need to include ranks as well. Minimum 3AE wages are about $500 a day with vacation and OT. 2AE around $600 a day. 1 AE about $750-$800 sometimes more. Chiefs are in the area of $800-$900 without OT.These are for tankers I have worked. Pay is even higher for the box boats. These are unlimited engineers and counterpart mates
I am afraid you are not going to get the information you need unless you request an average monthly pay or an annual pay . A lot of people on this forum do not understand vacation pay and over time. Many are paid only for the days they work and nothing for their days off. They also don’t understand pension payments which is deferred income.
Need to compare apples to apples.
Good luck with your survey.
“tengineer” day rate helps set a baseline. Some people sail 1 for 1 and some sale 2 for 1 etc. therefore an annual or monthly average may not be what we’re looking for. Benifit packages change constantly health, dental, eyes, 401K contributions, vacation pay, etc. I can see how a company with ATO and overtime would throw the day rate off but I’m sure us engineers can help eachother by providing a base day rate pay and maybe throw in some of the other perks if they feel it’s worthy. Do you have a day rate at this time? Your info would be much appreciated. Safe sailing to you guys.
