    I have been working at Chevron Shipping full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Some training in advanced navigation skills and piloting tank ships. However, training received was not acceptable to any international standards and needed to be repeated.

    Cons

    Tasks not within job description. Over hours and unpaid for it because of salary. Company is afraid to fire incompetent sailors, from the top down, in fear of legal retribution. Pollution regulations not understood. Redundant paperwork. Redundant corporate redundancy. When I quit, for very valid reasons, exit interview was a mess, just going through the motions. Cut medical, retirement, and vacation I had earned without...

    Advice to Management

    You have the worst name in the American Maritime industry. Stop the corporate paranoia, take advice from experienced Masters, and use a real straight up American union contracts, not a circus sideshow of medical and optional union membership. You can rebuild your name but I have no faith that will ever happen. Keep hiring the Brits to run what used to be an American corporation. Keep hiring foreign labor and undermining...

    I have been working at Chevron Shipping full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and great pay

    Cons

    Leadership needs improvement. Micromanagement. Lip service about about open and transparent communication. Lot of good leaders have left. It's not fun to work there anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Could use a lesson on putting people first from Mr. Dave O'reilly.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Chevron Shipping

    Pros

    Good pay with great benefits, 90/75 rotation.

    Cons

    Chevron is too afraid to fire underperforming employees, which leads to every one getting treated like children. Good employees leave often for other opportunities and the lazy ones stay. Also, increasing food prices, without an increased food budget.

    Advice to Management

    Fire people. Some people suck and don't deserve the pay and benefits they receive here at chevron. They can get another job from the SUP hall and fit right in at MSC.

There is no doubt that the company has been able to assemble a large group of very qualified professionals,...

    Excessive workload and too many meetings. Little room is left for individual decision making.

    Allow more room for the professionals within the company to make decisions: they have experience enough!

      Pros

      Emphasis of the human side of the company is really enforced and 9/80 policy that you work additional 1 hour OT for 9 days in 2 week, you get alternate day-off.

      Cons

      Some times can be slow in progressing, but as long as you are patient and keep on getting the job done, you will eventually get noticed.

      Pros

      An ownership company, which values it's values and mission statement more than profits. Take care about it's employee. A very good company who can adapt to the system and plan for a life long career.

      Cons

      Some times following the rules by the book does not work in practical life. Persons who have adopted to this environment would find it difficult to work in another company, if circumstances arises
