Don't go dressed like a tramp.
Think before answering any questions.
Read up o what the RN is doing around the world including the sand pit out East.
Have a list of your own questions.
Be sure what the job involves. WE, lots of sleeping. Don't be afraid to play the gay card. It snot yet compulsory but I hear its going that way.
Good luck, relax and enjoy yourself.

He also asked me boat names and what classes there are... Just relax.. If you dont know the answer dont guess just say sorry I dont know... Good luck

My daughter is WE . She also quoted the 12 hours sleep a day is expected , anything at night is an added bonus. Typical, I thought for her to find a job like that. While the ship is in port she is also in the bar most nights as well . This is where our tax payer money is going /sigh . I think she mentioned she did manage to change a cd drive this week . Oh the stress of the WE job :rabbit:

Yep, sounds about right.

Marine Engineers traditionally drip about keeping watches and the fact the machinery is running at sea and mainly maintained alongside. Our preventative maintenance system usually causes more work: strip, clean, inspect, lose a few bits, re-assemble.

WE kit tends to have fewer frequently moving parts & more static circuit-boardery. They generally wait for it to go wrong, carry out WNCBC (willy-nilly circuit board changes) to locate the fault, then ring the manufacturer to supply & fit the kit under warranty.
