  • The U.S. Navy on Friday took delivery of the future USS Thomas Hudner (DDG 116). During a ceremony on the fantail of the ship, Cdr. Nathan Scherry took command of the Arleigh Burke destroyer, which will be formally commissioned into the Navy fleet in Boston on Dec. 1. The Navy’s newest DDG 51-class destroyer is named for the Korean war hero who intentionally crashed his plane trying to save the nation’s first African American naval aviator. Capt. Thomas Hudner attended the christening of the ship on April 1, 2017. He died on Nov. 13 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.


    From the State House: Maine should support its shipbuilding industry, verify the results

    It's rare to encounter a Mainer who doesn't know about Bath Iron Works. Founded in 1884 right here in our City of Ships, BIW has built private, commercial and military vessels, most often for the United States Navy.

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at General Dynamics Bath Iron Works.


    Had a phone interview and received an offer a few days later. Questions weren't overly difficult. Hiring process can vary though, I know some who were brought in for on-site interviews.


    Offer was fair at the time, did not negotiate, although I would definitely try to score a parking permit if I were to do things over (parking is very limited and off-site lots usually have a wait list. Prepare to get a lot of parking tickets since all street parking in town has a 2 hour limit).
