Terminal Attendant (Former Employee) –  Tsawwassen, BC20 September 2013
BC Ferries runs a fairly busy business, with a great variety of job options and training available at various times throughout the year.

Getting full time here is almost impossible, and having a second job to make ends meet in the meantime is not viewed well by management.

The hardest part of the job is the fact that there are far too many managers running the day to day operations. Some micro-manage the lower levels, leaving staff running in many directions in order to please everyone.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the staff that you deal with on a day to day basis. There are many long-time employees here that are really fun and helpful. There are definite learning curves when dealing with traffic control and hydraulic operations depending where you work at the terminal
Pros
decent pay- lots of breaks
Cons
no proper schedule for years!!! on call
