Safety Documentation Comes First, Exposure to unsafe Work Environment Comes Second. Not a Very Happy Work Culture and Fear of Layoffs are spread on a Everyday basis, including your first day.
Unhealthy Work Environment
Nice people working there. The job is not too hard. The company is efficient with ship repairs. but is new to shipbuilding and is not so efficient, when building new ships. It has poor management and very poor engineering staff. The reason is: No one in Canada is competent to build new ships, because the country was out of the shipbuilding industry for 40 years. This may lead to huge layoffs.
Paved yard and not too cold.
The city traffic increase the commute time.
I was there for few months, all the workers I worked with are friendly. Didn't have any issue with any of them. My supervisor is super great ! I don't mind to go back there and work in the winter again
For some odd reason Seaspan won't apprentice any mechanics. I have passed my probation and when it came to adding me to the seniority list they refused because I don't have my a Red Seal Ticket... Yet they refuse to apprentice me or anyone else for that matter. I'm very disappointed since they are going to have a large amount of employees retire and they don't seem to want to plan ahead for that . I wanted to work there till I retire now I'm having to look for a company to help me finish my apprenticeship..

Seaspan provided great opportunity for me to apply my trade in Canada for the National Shipbuilding Strategy program.
Seaspan and the NSS program provided excellent opportunity in developing and managing a start up EVMS system and culture within a rapidly growing company. Enabled application of planning and organization experience, development of ERP system and process, cross functional reporting, training, development and co-ordination.
Engineering / production team, less ship design experence among technical and production managers, low productive at engineering team. People doesn't know what to do because managers can't point out the right directions, poor leadership at lower level managers
sometime work long hours, overtime without pay at senior level
