      Pros

      Great people to work with. Very professional.

      Cons

      Seniority gets most work, but if you stay long enough its worth it. 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off is hard for my family.

      Pros

      They've been around for a while and seem to weather most storms. They try to accommodate their employees however they can. Good pay.

      Cons

      They lag behind the other supply companies a bit and don't seem to be run as well by management.

      Good Company to work for

      Nov 25, 2015 - OSV Chief Engineer in Morgan City, LA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Once you can gain employment, you control your own destiny and the sky is the limited. without any marine background you will start at the bottom, but you have wonderful advantages of moving up to either a chief engineer, or a vessel captain. I started as a wiper and within 4 years I made chief. the further you advance, the more money you earn. I started out making $100.00/day, and when I left twelve years later, I was making $600.00/day. Hard work, great pay.

      Cons

      You must be willing to work a 28 day on duty, 14 day off schedule. Lots of heavy lifting, working in the gulf of mexico on a supply vessel servicing oil rigs. Real hard work, but the benefits are second to none.
