    I’ll answer. It really depends on the companies who you sign up for. If you take shitty contracts expect shitty pay. Just avoid all RoRos and cruise ship and you’ll be fine.

    A year out I made 8.5k a month on one stint, and 7.8k a month on the other. This didn’t take into account my vacation checks and other bonuses.

    Your mileage will vary.

    I’m an AB for reference.

    My advice, get your time in ASAP and hawsepipe to mate.

    Edit: the time waited in the hall for jobs varies by the hall. I was in houston and I’ve never waited longer than 2 or 3 days for a job. Most of the time same day is possible.
