Cool place to work with diverse selection of experienced people to have understanding of engineering perspective of how vessels are being built. Something that’s rare around here. Great pay

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.
Pros
Paved yard and not too cold.
Cons
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 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.
