    I guess that is only for people with current DP Unlimited rating?

    If you're a current employee at Harvey Gulf DM me and I will drop your name on the app! Let's see if it's true. I'm ready for a switch.

    yeah, any employees on here? I would like to know conditions there and if its a decent company to work for. I'm working only temp jobs for now and its pretty slow (UL Master/SDPO). Hoping to find a good company to work for before I sign on again. Tired of all the BS...

    I'se already gots a job and it's not with the likes of the Guidry's or Candies' or Hornbeck's or Chouest's or any other of the LaFourche mafia families. Been there already and don't want to go back to that way of being treated. I've said it before but as long as these companies have their OSV only captives it will be the same old "never hungry but never full either" way of doing business. But hell you're working for the "best damned company in the Gulf!" Just ask Mr. Joe Boss...he'll make damned sure to tell you that everytime you see him. I bet he'll also tell you that "the employees make the company" while the owners pocket the profits.

    bon appitite y'all

    I went by Harvey right before they started posting billboards claiming big money and now sign on bonuses.

    Direct quote from the HR guy. "We are looking for guys with YEARS of DP experience."

    With only my Intro class done, a year of DP experience on 150ft mini supplies, and having just upgraded my license they felt I didn't have the experience they where looking for. I can't fault them for that.

    So that said, don't expect to just get a job with them if you don't have a lot of experience running oil field supply boats with DP.

    What is going on right now is everybody is moving up vertically. IE the top companies are losing guys to the drilling rigs, guys from the mid tier companies are moving up to fill those spots, and guys from the bottom rung are moving up to the mid tier companies. So everybody who thinks they are going to get a job at a top companies right off the bat need to dial back their expectations. Same goes with the mid companies when it comes to their newer equipment, but tough it out for a year or two and you will move up. We are just getting over the hang over caused by the last influx of sail boat and charter fishing guys who thought they could run a boat, so the top companies are still a little gun shy.

    That being said ECO for you bigger license and Abdon Callais for 100 ton are two top companies that will hire new guys. I will warn the Abdon will make you run as a training captain and step through many hoops before your even allowed to drive into port or around a rig regardless of your experience, but again that comes from hiring to many inexperienced guys and putting them in charge to fast during the last boom.

    I do predict that all of this will be null and void come this time next year and anybody with a license will be able to get the job of there choosing.


    "the employees make the company"
    That can cut both ways, know plenty of companies that I don't want to work for because of the quality of the people they hire. But for the most part I just roll my eyes and collect my pay check when I hear that and wonder how they can say that and not pay for any training.

    Don't forget "We treat our employes like family". Yea like red headed step children that we only let out of the closet to beat for asking for more porridge.
    Getting straight with Nate, because apparently getting right means your going to have to retake Nav Gen
