    Default MSC pay scales

    What is the pay scale for OS, Wiper and ABs at MSC? And what other "perks" (if any) do you get working there? Is the Overtime?

    OS (day) Base $32532 OT Rate $26.98 PT Rate $11.71

    OS (watch) Base $27316 OT Rate $22.64 PT Rate $ 8.87

    Wiper Base $ 32532 OT rate $ 26.96 PT Rate $ 8.87


    Other Benefits.....wow, where do I start:

    - lots of OT, you can always work the weekends, that at least give you 32 hours OT/pay period
    - travel to and from ship paid for

    - free knives, multi-tools, and flashlights (pelican/surefire...what do you like?)
    - Shop at NEX Privileges (cheapest booze around)
    - free medicine/medical care on ship
    - free rides to Wal-Mart, NEX, Target, airport, AppleBees, bus station, your doctor office, and anywhere else you can think of
    - High speed internet at sea
    - Free DirectTV / AFN TV in your room
    - Free satellite phones to use while at sea
    - You are free to quit a ship/get fired/medical discharge whenever you like with no penalty...just head back to

    Hi UnRepKing,

    Have you heard any rumors about sequestration/hiring freezes with this fiscal cliff nightmare? I am preparing my package for the jr Eng open announcement but now I'm concerned they will slam the door on hiring now...thanks.
