Non-existant Career Progression, Biased Hiring Policy

Pros: - Inter-departmental colleagues were warm and friendly - Salaries were received on time every month Cons: - Very remote and in-accessible work location, 20 minutes from nearest train station ( limited company transportation provided with long jams encountered ) - Non-existent career progression, old fashioned management does not promote internal staffs - Not suitable workplace for fresh graduates - Biased hiring/ employment policies. Company policy required employees to give notice for resignation (which was standard). However, company has exclusive rights to terminate employees with no notice and without valid reasons or grounds. Unfair to hardworking employee. Conclusion : Strongly not recommended for job seekers, unless job seeker had not other better options/choice than this company.

Not much enjoyable, very hard to complete all the jobs with minimum people. The promotion prospect was slow. Location of the office far from the Central business district.

Productive and Attractive Salary.

Ocean Tankers is the best company I have worked for. Ocean Tankers is an oil and gas company and own a large fleet of tankers starting from vessels over 1000 tons to very large crude oil carriers(VLCC) over 160K tons. I worked on two ships which are one over 40,000 tons and one VLCC and 6 and a half months on each vessel. I got a wide knowledge of machinery designs, maintenance and operations and electrical knowledge. I followed 2nd Engineer and 4th Engineer helping and learning in maintenance and operation of various machineries and took engine room watch keeping duties with 4th Engineer.I’m specifically trained for marine boilers, sewage treatment plant, heat exchangers, fresh water generator, purifiers, A.C generators, air conditioning plants, refrigeration plants, and general operation and maintenance of Main Engine and control system and electrical switches. As being a marine engineer, I have to follow all the regulations safely and strictly. I learnt duty and responsibility really well. I enjoyed my work and love to spend time with my senior colleagues. We have taken over all the problems together. As I feel isolated from social life from family and friends, I want to stop going to sea and work on shore.

Pros

Salary is regular, Transportation is nice.

Cons

as ship to ship operations due and no chance to touch the ground for six months.

Good

your job is to ensure safe operation of the vessel in term of navigation ,cargo ,security and environment.. You need to report your daily activities to the company. Communicate with charterer,owner and agent on cargo matters. Obtained clearance for for vessel to enter and depart for ports. What learned you need to be punctual and perform team work in order to operate the vessel smoothly. The management is good the cooperate and assist you if you counter problems on board in any matters such machinery or navigation equipment. You need to conduct emergency drill and training on board. Hardest if you encounter bad weather

Pros

An organization with high turnover

Working here was an ongoing learning experience. Tasks become easier with good logistical supports. Supportive co-workers. But career growth opportunity seems to be rather dim.

Pros

Job security is high

Cons

Top down Management, high power distance. Need to look at more on employee well being.

Productive and very fun working with ocean tankers

My work activities includes routine check of all operational machines and report the outcome to chief engineer. Learn how to work as a team in solving problems on board.Learn how to solve problems by means of studying the operational of every machine on board and how to respond to emergency response situations. Management very supportive and very appreciative to our safety working environment and very surportive to our need and well being of all crew. Verry friendly and social and creating a common working and safety environment for each crew. The hardest part of the job is working with limited amount of tools and not much information about the equipment under repairs or luck of blue print, or operational manuals. The most enjoyable part of the job is doing your required maintenance and seeing that all your machinery are working to deliver the results

Pros

Free lunch, Etc..

Cons

Short break, And health care
