        Former Employee - ROV Technician in Morgan City, LA
        Doesn't Recommend
        Neutral Outlook
        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Oceaneering International full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        ROV’s are enjoyable to work with.

        Cons

        Very poor pay. Always an excuse for not receiving a raise even though they were promised. Worked closed to 80% of the year which is great for some people but depressing at 15.50 an hour.

        Advice to Management

        Don’t expect loyalty when employees are doing everything and more than expected and are not rewarded at all. The only reward I received there was “At least you’re working”
