Deck Crew Ratings (Current Employee) – On-board a ship – 26 August 2016
Working on-board provides attractive salary but the risk, danger, and psychological effect to seafarers not to mention the love ones left at home is not worth the pay. Everyday is routine, wake up at your watch, do maintenance. Life is so precious and has a lot of possibility, I realize it working at ship when I think of things that I can do and plans I have made what unfortunate about it is that I am bounded by the metals of the ship. Every 3 months a Captains contract ends which is the arrival of the new one and so the management change, what is good to the previous might be unpleasant to the new one. We are doing all our best as a Crew to finish our contract and looking at each other to be safe and go home alive and in one piece. As a Seafarer all of my job is tough my environment is tough but the hardest of all is complying with all the regulation of the sea and ship that even the act of common sense is being questioned. Visiting different countries is fun but when you realize that its not possible to go ashore then disappointment is your feeling most of the time.
everything you need is provided on board
after every vessel assignments is also the end of all.
Excellent experience, gained alot of knowledge with the crews.
Deckhand (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 18 July 2016
I bounced around many boats, and was able to pick up valuable lessons from experienced crews. I was able to travel, passed through the Panama Canal, and sailed to Nova Scotia a couple of times. Panama was definitely the highlight of my time with Maersk. I would love to see more of the world through this career. I thought the world of our captains, officers and deck crews. The weather is rough on the Grand Banks, but I've worked outside my entire life, it comes with the job. I would like to get back onto a time on/ time off routine again. Maersk also provided me with several courses, FRC being the big one.
Loss Prevention and Quality Control Officer (Former Employee) – Langley, BC – 5 August 2015
The right blend of challenging work in a fun and friendly culture can be hard for most companies to perfect. But according to me, Maersk is not like most companies. People at Maersk get a lot of responsibility and they’re known for going the extra mile and get paid well for it too.
