    I have been working at Hornbeck Offshore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is comparable with industry standards. Even time hitches for the most part. The larger vessels are pretty nice.

    Cons

    Crew changes are a night mare. Crew coordinators don't really follow through to ensure a smooth crew change. All vessels and crews are micro managed. There is an us versus them mentality displayed by most of the office staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying door to door travel. Let the vessel crews manage their vessels. Management needs to be more open ad forthcoming with the vessel crews, and realize that they are an asset not a liability.

    I have been working at Hornbeck Offshore full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The rotation is good. The insurance is OK. They provide transportation from the airport to Fourchon.

    Cons

    The "travel " pay is terrible. You pay for your flight to and from if you fly into New Orleans. They only pay 370 for someone who flies long distances. If you don't work your full hitch then you don't get any travel pay. Crew changes are the worst that I have encountered while in the industry. No one has a clue of what is going on from the crew coordinator to the Officers at home that are getting a half days pay to set this up. There is no communication with the on coming crew.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying for travel and pay for hotel rooms for the guys that fly in the night before.
