    I worked at GulfMark Offshore full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Some good people out here. Great crew coordinator.

    Cons

    Title says it all. If you want to learn and gain experience in an engine room this is not the job for you. As of now, QMEDs work the deck as ABs and have to cram any engine room time in when they are not on deck, and we were always on deck. It’s double the work load with little to no reward or recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being shortsighted and let the QMEDs get trained in your engine rooms so they will be great engineers in the future for you.

    I worked at GulfMark Offshore full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Was a short 1 month on 2 weeks off schedule, was nice but felt like a 30 for 12 after commuting to and from. Money was good before oil downturn.

    Cons

    -Very Clickish, most of the employee's are from Louisiana, Georgia, Florida area so did not open up easily to people from outside the region. Management would play nice when they wanted or needed you, but wouldn't give you the time of day when you needed them. Wasted no time slashing salaries and jobs when the oil downturn hit.

    I worked at GulfMark Offshore full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Really enjoyed crews and coworkers. Equipment was well maintained and clean.

    Cons

    Big difference between corporate and region management. Seasoned leadership at corporate but regional leadership was not professional. Local office almost nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Professional and experienced management needed at regional level.

      Pros

      The company is good at business, and they will survive the current downturn in the oilfield. They reward loyalty, and seniority accordingly. Opportunities to advance.

      Cons

      They treat their sailors a bit indifferently, management doesn't really want to hear about personal issues, or plans. Be ready when they call you to come to work, and when you want to get off, be patient.

      Advice to Management

      Improve communications between office and seagoing personnel. Make your seagoing personnel feel heard, and be more considerate to personal needs and plans.

      I worked at GulfMark Offshore

      Pros

      they would always do their best to find coverage if you needed time off for coast guard or required classes

      Cons

      They did not ever pay for your travel to and from the port. they cut pay un announced during the height of the oilfield slow down.

      Advice to Management

      If you are going to cut day rates, it shouldn't become active until the end of that persons hitch. Its not like they can quit and swim 120 nautical miles home.

      I worked at GulfMark Offshore full-time

      Pros

      I never had and issues with the office personel and once you finally get on a boat that dont have any problems with the rest of the crew everything for the most part flows smoothly. With a two year contract they will pay for they schooling you need to ugrade your license.

      Cons

      The captains have to much power and are treated better then other employees. Then there are a lot employees that only try to make themselves look good and will try to get you fired at all cost in order to make this happen. Also captains will lie to the office to get you fired or switched to another boat if they find a single reason they dont like you. Too many really strange employees.

      Advice to Management

      HR needs to actually interview people they are hiring way to many people get hired because they know someone or because they licenses they have.
