BC Ferries

Size of company: Large (More than 500 employees)

Industry: Transportation (freight), Warehousing

  • This has got to be one of the worst employers to work for that I have ever experienced. Zero flexibility, almost zero opportunity for advancement for staff development. Succession planning is non existent. Managers are rude, crewing departments are impossible to deal with, HR is basically there to cover their butts legally. Only good thing I have to say is the hard working front line staff that come to work everyday and provide a safe reliable service with far to few resources. Please if you have any other options steer clear of BC Ferries. The pay and benefits are not worth what you will be forced to endure. Many many better options out there.

I concur whole heartedly.
The only reason I worked for this company as a seasonal hire was to gain Occupational First Aide 3 experience.
It is not a mystery to me that this organization sunk a ferry with fatalities.
While delivering beverages to the bridge of a "Queen class vessel" I was invited to pilot the ship while in Active Pass between Victoria and Vancouver.
Needless to say I accepted the offer. The likelihood of piloting a V class vessel weighing more than three and a half thousand Tons would not likely occur again within my lifetime.
I'm told that beverages, dishes, and, belongings all found there way to the deck. I was sure that this would be my one shot at driving a ferry so I might as well make the most of it. Totally made the whole horrid experience of working for the evil PRIVATIZED, for PROFIT, essential service worth it.
