        Well, I had an interview for CMT on Thursday, it was for engine, but i imagine the interviews will be relatively similar, the interview is more like a test, the questions/answers are scored with points, they get added up and then they decide on whether your interview was successful or not. Here are some of the questions i was asked:

        What would you find in an engine room (You can transpose these questions to deck)
        What will your responsabilitys be as a engine officer?
        What is the ranking system of the engine room? (Cadet, junior, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, chief ect ect)
        How will you deal with the isolation of working on a ship?

        Dont worry to much about the technical questions, they only asked me about 2 of the ships and i hazarded a guess (An accurate one mind )

        Just chill out, its pretty laid back

            Sigh..............and again.............

            Welcome to the site Calumn799, if you just have a look above your post you will see some questions asked to Engine Cadets, also use the search function in the top right hand corner and you will find lots of threads on Interviews.

            Part of me thinks we should have a section on the Forum that Says CLYDE MARINE INTERVIEWS, like it does for Aspiring cadets etc.....the number of times this pops up is staggering! I guess Clyde really are a big recruiter.

              Well a big interviewer at the very least ....Yeah they are pretty much the biggest game in town as they Umbrella lots of other companies making it cheaper for them to "have cadets".

              I am also wondering if the search even works given that we have several CM and Maersk threads of a similar vain AND a thread just for interviews....

              Yes I work for the big blue canoe company.
              No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

                    and I still cant tell the difference between an ex Bright Star and the non Ex version, both are equally crap and never work when you need them.

                    Not sure you need ex torch for every tank crawl on a box boat and there should always be plenty of Woolf Lights or similar knocking about, taking a AA maglight isnt a bad idea and fits in hand luggage (mine lives there pretty much all the time)

                      Unnecessary ballast? Mine fits in my pocket! Hardly extra weight...

                        Do they make Ex pocket torches? I read Maglite and had visions of this year's cadet cohort collectively coming up the gangway wielding a 6D 'it's not an offensive weapon, officer' truncheon.

                          In fairness, I have a Chinese policeman's torch, which is bright enough to blind pilots and even has a setting that can cause an epileptic fit (yeah, we don't know why), but it was much better than the batton style torch we had on board...
