Great work enviroment and friendly seniors

I went as an intern for 1 year and 1 day, they welcome me as their colleague, not an intern. When I'm at half of my contract they really respect me and look like one of their Engineers. They help me to grow and make myself a more proficient Marine Engineer.

All in all in terms of productivity, the safe operations will show the output of everything.

On a typical day of 12-hour duty, we are on the watchkeeping obligations on the engineroom with my oilers and other engine personnels to ensure safety on our department. The hardest part of the job could be the personnel management. It is really a big challenge for me but i am always trying to pacify any misunderstanding to build a better relationship to everybody on board. The most enjoyable part could be the maintenance time for all our engines and auxillaries because this is the time that we can show to everybody our skills and help each other for the safe operations. This is also one way of helping those crew that needs a learning for their future careers as marine engineers.

Pros

No free on food.

Productive workplace but undproductive workmate/s

Productive workplace because it makes an employee work better. Unproductive workmate/s because most of the time the employees are watching videos and talking to some officemates which starts a gossip. The management promotes become pro active but some are torpid.

Pros

Paid overtime, OT meal allowance

Cons

Unproductive workmates
