The physical is pretty easy. Might have problems if you are late 50’s, smoke 2 packs a day, 100lbs overweight and never exersise.
Even time for all the Officers on the big boats. Mix of even and 2 on 1 off for the small boats and hands.
As for pay they might not be top but they pay full travel for Officers, if you fly they pay for hotel rooms, if you drive they pay $.56 a mile. If you work at least 28 days you only get full days. IE for every 28 you work you get 29 days of pay. Also if crewchange is late and you get off at 0001 thats another full days pay. They also pay $150 a day for traning, cover hotel rooms, and i think give you some money for food. If its mandatory training they give you a full days pay.
I dont know where the no airport pickup and drop off thing came from, because thats a lie. There are several airport runs a day, and transportation dosent care who they take or pickup.
That $100 Im giving up a day by working at Seacor is more then made up for in that they are the least fucked up of all the top companies. After only three hitches here I was making 75% more then I was at C&G and working on their newest boats.
Ive said it before. Pay, even time, or least bullshit. Pick two you cant have all three. I picked even time and least bullshit. Plus when things get tight, Im not worried about my pay being cut and not making my time.
Willard hires like every other boat company. What spot dose he need to fill today and how many qulified guys dose he have walking in his door. Unless you are an academy grad or are an enginner you need to have your DP Licinse. They also wouldb rather hire a green hand and train them up then hire an AB or QMED.
Pay for bridge breaks down like this.
Straight mate $460
Master running as mate +$25
DP license +40
Captain, cheif mate, what ever the fuck you want to call it, but you’re running your own watch $680. By working 28 days it really comes out to $704 a day per standard 28 day hitch, and Seacor is esentially paying for half of my truck with travel reimbursement.
Master around $780
There is a $30 pay bump for anchor boats. Overseas is $40.
Engineers follow the same maybe $10 less.
Just so yall dont think Im looking through things with completely rose colored glasses I started with Seacor on deck and was here for 3 years. Got my 100 ton license and thought I could do better and left.
