    I worked at Cal Dive full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    That company will teach the ones willing to learn...to the maxim of diving.

    Cons

    Well there out of business (they've been in business since the early 70's) and there are plenty of rumors about how that happened?! However, there out of business because they had a a weasel scumbag in charge! Everyone knew oil and gas was going to plummet, he just played his hand and got out while he could. Back when men were men and "divers" owned the company we would have had to loose a lot, both assets and personnel, but we wouldn't have tucked tail and ran!

    Advice to Management

    Well for the management that had a hard in bankruptcy, kill yourselves

    EHS Advisor Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Cal Dive.

    Interview

    Slow and drawn out process. Company is in a state of change re-defining exact roles of position. Had to be very persistent to secure interview and get follow-up commitment on hire dates

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing extraordinary to note except being able to respond to off shore questions with regards to "How do you know you will be able to handle working offshore?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Get everything in writing is critical. Company is doing some internal reorganizing and things get forgotten and lost.
