If you are a trained professional (Management, Officer or Crew) then BC Ferries is best avoided. A highly toxic, trouble filled working culture plus gross mismanagement causes no end of problems.
Bc Ferries has a poor reputation in the Shipping industry for a very good reason: a bloated bureaucracy, appalling blame culture, bullying, extreme political correctness, ill thought out working practicies and philosophies plus low calibre management all help to fuel a deeply unpleasant working enviroment. I have met very few Senior Officers having joined from other Shipping companies that hadn't regretted thier decision within a year.

I've noticed a few people saying "free"travel passes and 1 saying unlimited..this isn't true ...you get a restricted number of passes for vehicles and family and these are all a taxable benefit.Travel with a vehicle does not guarantee you will get on as paying customers come first and pass users are on standby as per pass use agreement.Those required to travel for company business is different.
