Enjoyable temporary job
Maintenance / Security (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 June 2019
Emergency fill in as a shipkeeper for a bulk freighter in winter layup, early 2016. Good working relationship with immediate supervisor and manager the level above.
Pros
Required only a daily tour of boat to check equipment, ballast tank readings. Ship’s layup location aided in keeping unauthorized people away.
Cons
Required a 24/7 assignment, some brief time away was possible with notification to management.

Challenging work environment
Wheelsman (Current Employee) –  Various ships on the Great Lakes9 November 2012
Normal shifts are 4 hours on and 8 hours off with overtime 2 hours before or after shift.
Contracts range from 2 weeks to 3 months aboard ship.
Management varies from ship to ship and it is obvious which Officers have control and which ones struggle to maintain order.
Co-workers change often as I change ships and also on board as vacations and leave mean new relief crew.
The hardest part of the job is being away from home.
The best part of the job is the ever changing surroundings. While in transit, every day is a new view. In port, interacting with personnel from across Canada and taking part in the loading and discharging of vast amonts of cargo is incredible.
Pros
hourly wages and benefits; meals and housing provided
Cons
absent from home for long periods
