  • Maersk

    What are the benefits of going with maersk during cadetship? I'm looking for the pay (college and sea)? What they pay for you? And other entitlements or advantages over other companies? Just general knowledge and experience from doing the cadetship with maersk would be good.

    Personally I think it'd be great!

    And also does anyone have an email of someone who deals with recruitment at Maersk they could give me or even msg me, it's quite urgent.

    Thanks.

    If I were you, I would apply to everyone, not just Maersk. Give yourself the best chance. Pay shouldnt really come into it as a cadet, training is more important. I survive just fine on CMT's wages.

      You've missed entry for Maersk this year. They are recruiting for 2014 though

        I thought you would but everyone complains about the CMT pay.

          Its not the best no but its totally managable. When you consider that you are getting paid to learn and train for a fantastic career it really dosent matter what you get paid, as long as you can survive.

              But from what Ive been hearing their training is second to none!
              I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

                I don't understand, see when you say training do you mean during the sea phase when your on their ships. Because isn't it the college and the lecturers that teaches you all the stuff and the companies just pay for it?

                  The college will teach you the basics, how to be a deck officer you learn from being at sea and actually doing the job. Instead of completing an MNTB portfolio, Maersk have their own approved version and from what I hear, it's a darn good one.

                    The Maersk approved version is no more - now its just the MNTB TRB. One thing you can be sure of is that the support is there shoreside and the berths are there for sea time - something some companies claim but aren't that efficient at delivering.

                      However, The Maersk cadets I know get money thrown at them. They've had laptops, gym membership, sailing trips etc paid for by the company.

                        Here's hoping that hasn't stopped with the funding cuts

                          Never heard of any maersk cadets getting any of this at STC. They did pay my first 6 weeks of halls though which is good. As for pay, it is pretty squarely in the middle; PNTL/shell/etc get a lot more. Pretty sure we get paid more that CMT, especially after two rises since we started. Maersk is the same at sea and at college, which some other companies aren't (i.e you get paid less at sea). Everyone is fairly skint at college, don't get hung up on the money.

                          From college and the first sea-trip I'd say they've been good: solid support from shore, interesting places, good officers and therefore training and a bit of choice in what kind of ship to go on, up to a point obviously.

                            I have never heard of this happening - at most engineers will get some money for books and heard the deckies got their instruments for chart witchcraft refunded to a max of ?60 during first phase and thats about it (back in 2010).

                              The guys I knew were told by their training manager that if Maersk spent ?xx on their cadets, and could prove it to the government then they would get a nice big tax break.
