As an aspiring yacht stew or deckhand, a huge part of the job-hunting process is networking and searching online for potential job opportunities. It is increasingly important we cover the red flags you need to be mindful of when applying for jobs online, especially through social media pages.
In this episode, I share 7 ways to spot red flags with yacht crew jobs!
If you have only dealt with the crew agent and not actually spoke to anyone on the boat I would be thinking twice about joining this vessel. Why? Because to me that says they do not care what crew they employ they just need crew to come on board asap, more than likely they have a very large crew turnover so that’s crew coming and going because the boat probably has terrible owners or is not well run at all. Longevity speaks for itself in yachting, if you have had crew on there for a while it’s a really good sign of a good boat. This is one question I encourage you to ask in the interview phase, how long have the crew been onboard? If they have a lot of positions available or crew less than three months. That’s a bad sign and I would be thinking twice about joining.
