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.
