Good work-life balance, not so much for sea-going crew

I'm practicing my self to become a chief cook.
Everyday is a very calm day because as a front desk receptionist i saw everyone coming in with a smile on their face as i greeted them good morning.
i have learned here that you can be a friend even to a managers,because in this company even the managers are very friendly and approachable.
our culture is like a family too,we are helping each other.
the hardest part of the job is none..just happy to work.
Maersk was one of the few companies who gave allowance to interns and they value their work and effort. The employees in Maersk are very friendly because they attend to all of my questions and helped me finish tasks and make sure that I do the job properly.
this is one of the best company I ever joined. it was design to become employee friendly environment. it has a program for employees to become more productive and proactive. employees welfare is a proirity.
Salary are not good, accounting is not functioning well
Salary are delayed and sometimes a lot of error
Safety practices are high, company are getting big but not the salary, they even reducing the salary
1. I learned how to work with safety
3. the hardest part of job is when the ship is rolling
2. The most enjoyable part of job are even in the how hard the job and you see your colleagues that still happy
We work 8 hours a day, from 8am to 5pm but overruled when there is an emergency in ship's propulsion machineries.
I have learned to manage my time wisely and to control myself when I feel pressure
We have a good management officers, they treat individuals equally.
The hardest part of the job is when we have a machinery failures and needs an immediate action just not to make any problem in the next schedule of voyage.
The most enjoyable part of the job is, you'll learn a lot about different cultures and new skills because of different nationalities
Going to the office early,planning ahead because of traffic then
before getting ready for work having some coffee.
I've learned so many things regarding how shipping industry works,
deadlines,rush amendments,customer care,being polite and humble not only to people but to clients as well.
Management well to managers theyre lively as always.
Workplace is a challenge because you get to know and experience
different people on how they approach work.
Hardest about the job for me is sometimes we experience bad day,
meaning your sick and not feeling well when your needed.Thats sad for me.
Honestly the things i learn everyday with regards to work,new SOP, new things about the loads you do,i mean how you do it and make something out of it,thinking what if something made it faster.
