The following blog post was written by MSC’s dedicated human resources staff, and is part of a series focused on jobs at MSC – recruiting and retaining our talented workforce. Stay tuned for more and be sure to share your feedback and ideas in the comments section.

With the approach of the new year many of us are taking time to re-evaluate our career and goals.  How will we reach those goals? What will we do to improve the lives of our loved ones or ourselves? Are we happy?

If you find yourself in this position and you’re wondering if there’s a career path out there that could offer you greater opportunities, security and the ability to support your family, then you are reading the right blog.

We offer our civil service mariners (CIVMARs) outstanding employment benefits and the opportunity to improve their lives while serving their country.

Whether you join our team as a licensed engineer or one of our most entry-level positions of wiper*, you have access to benefits that will help you chart your course. 

We also offer competitive pay and the opportunity for CIVMARs to earn overtime. There are additional ways to expand your earning potential, like becoming a Surface Rescue Swimmer. This collateral duty increases your salary every month. 

If providing for your family, or saving for your future, is top of mind, when you are sailing with MSC, your room and board are covered, so your full paycheck can be deposited to support your family or saved. We also offer CIVMARs the ability to plan for their future, using the Thrift Savings Plan, and the opportunity to participate in a variety of health, dental, vision and long term care insurance programs.

CIVMARs have the potential to learn and expand out of the position they are hired into. Promotion from within is one thing we pride ourselves on. Through hard work and dedication, CIVMARs looking to advance their career can get hands-on experience and training in different areas. Merit promotion boards are scheduled every month for a variety of positions giving you the opportunity to advance your career. We have CIVMARs who have started in our most entry level positions and have advanced to become senior licensed officers.
