    I worked at BC Ferries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working on boats, Good Salary if you have the qualifications, Variety, excellent training, variety of ships. Working on ships and get to home home every night!

    Cons

    Shift work, Union mentality. If you like to work some older employees get mad at you for working too hard. Takes a while to get full time at least 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way for casual workers to chose either day or night shifts instead of going back and forth.
