WWAD? "What Would Anchorman Do?"
"Captain standard operating procedure for decision making is to do what feels right to you at the time, and then to give logical sounding justifications for what you were already going to do anyway" -
So we know all the Companies know to the penny what every other Company is paying. (Thanks OMSA) ...
Fess up fellows, what are the honest POST RAISE day rates where you work ?

Master holding Master AGT -???
I have heard that HOS was supposed to be giving a raise on December 1. It will be interesting to see what their new rate is.
Wow! That's strong. Would like to know how the rest of the gulf compares to that? I am guessing you work for candies?Originally Posted by quatroporquatro
No numbers here. I will save that for someone else to post. The consensus is out. A lot of people are not happy I can tell you that. Going to ride this thing out and see how this plays out. This should be good.Originally Posted by anchorman
I agree almost everyone onboard was insulted with the emails that came out the other day
You're twisted. LolOriginally Posted by anchorman

What are the rates for the engine room?Originally Posted by quatroporquatro
New ECO rates are equal to otto candies rates, pre raise. Still lagging behind. Hoping for something more in the stocking around Christmas.Originally Posted by power230
Me and you both are hoping for more. The new rates are not up to par. Just like to know how bad we are behind everyone else. Hopefully it will be like the last raise, a few months will go by and another increase.Originally Posted by SoCalSalt
Its a tough reality that with all the profits these companies are posting annually, those of us who sail on board these vessels are the last to see the reward for revenue we generate through our dedication to the industry. Its about time they start sharing more of the pie. Only when they begin to lose employees by the masses to more competitive paying outfits do they feel they need to compensate more fairly. If I don't see a bigger raise soon, I'll be jumping over to the drill ships for sure! Who's with me?
As long as it stays a free market all things will even out. Some companies pay more, some less. Some people demand more, some less. The beauty of it all is that it's a free world so if you want to jump to big money on the drill ship, or another company, no one can fault you especially the guy that they hire to replace you.
If this is the start of the next boom, it will only get more interesting. I for one can't wait!
If at first you don't succeed... skydiving might not be for you.
Chouest may be behind in the pay department but, Imho, that will soon balance out and for anyone needing classes they are still top of the industry with their dedicated training center which is completely free to all employees.
The management for Chouest is quite shrewd and you can bet that there is a plan in place to stem the flood of people leaving, when they wish to.
Keep the slimy side down!!!!

Harvey Gulf has not said a peep about raises yet.
