    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...

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

    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)

    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....

    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, 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

    Hi Hatty, I think Clyde still send out a couple of information leaflets to you when they write to you confirming the details of your interview; all of this information is available on the Clyde Marine Training website. Just make sure you have read the about us/careers sections of the CMT website from cover to cover (so to speak), if you haven't already that is

    Hi Hatty, I had an interview with Clyde a while back (also at Fleetwood) and from what I can remember it was a pretty relaxed affair. I think deck interviews tend to be slightly less technical than engineering, so if you know one end of a ship from the other and have read their literature you will be absolutely fine!

    Good luck and let us know how you get on!

    As for the post about torches, I presume that means I won't be able to make use of my maglite

    cheers keep hearing about this stuff you should read, do they send you it or is it on there website or what? cheers x

    I will pick one up then, thanks once again
    Not a problem. I've set up a big tanker thread so if you have any more tanker questions, go on there. I've served or work with all different tankers out there so ask away.
