14/14 21/21 28/28. Pay depends on what you actually know. Ive had guys with 6 months experience know more than 10 yr "mates". You're evaluated and paid accordingly

100-winter gear. There's a catalog you order the gear from. The boots you get from wherever you want. Have to be 8" tall and steel toe or other equivalent.

The pay starts at 27,000yr, you only work 6 months for that. and if you stick with it you can advance to a pilot or engineer, and they are making 70,000 to 112,000yr for only 6 months work. Yes it will take you about 3yrs to get to that point. within 90 days of starting you could move up to 33,215yr. 120 days after that 38,690, 180days after that 41,245, and at that point you are ready to try for the pilot or engineer position. so you are looking at just over two yrs to make 41,245yr for only 6 month work. work 8 to 5 5 days a week for 40,000 ro work 6 mo for 40,000 and have 6 months off.

They will even help with travel expenses. Until you are a Mate, typically will provide you with the cost of a bus ticket. You have the option of driving, but the most reimbursement you would recieve is the price of a ticket, in most cases. Used to do mileage reimbursement until people got greedy and screwed that all up.

I just been interviewed over the phone and the interviewer told me to call him back tomorrow for a interview setup date. I work and live on a farm. I have been Logging on and off and worked at a Corn mill for around 9 months. I am 20 years old. Do I have a good shot for the job. I applied for a TWIC card about 4 days ago because I really want this job and always have. Do you have any pointers for the interview and how long does it take to start getting to work. I'm a really ready to start this job. And how much is starting deckhand pay.

Thanks Josh

Starting pay is around 140/day. The payroll is a little confusing to some, but basically you are paid the exact same amount every two weeks. In essence you receive half your earned money while you are gone and whike you are home. It is financially to your benefit over some companies who simply pay your full trip in a single check because you will get hosed on taxes. The way Ingram payroll works, you are paid an entire day for each calendar day worked. What that means is you receive 15 days pay for 14 worked, 22 days for 21 worked, 29 for 28 worked, etc depending on the length of your trip. The "extra" day is divided into what is known as accrued leave and goes into an account of sorts. You can use those days for days missed due to sickness or family emergencies, or you can sell up to as many extra that you have to get a little extra on a check. I hope I havent confused you too much, but a simple way to figure your check is multiply your daily rate by 7. If starting pay is 140/day, your gross pay would be 980 dollars. Depending on which insurance you opt for, 401k contributions, etc, your bring home would be in the neighborhood of 750 every two weeks. Keep in mind, anyone with a work ethic can advance very quickly, especially in a harbor position.
