lots of pressure

It is one of the oldest port in India. The work pressure is too much but i enjoy handling the pressure. The working environment is also very good. But the salary structure is very bad.

Productive and Fun workplace

As a trainee I was welcome into the organization openly. We were taught all we needed to know about the operation of the company in the theory classes before going on to the practical workshops. The seniors and teachers are extremely friendly and welcome everyone as equals.

Operation of Advanced machinaries

Kolkata port trust having 2 dredgers 1 emergency vessel. a good environment which i can study more about marine machinaries behaviour , maintenance and operation. a typical day at work: i am having two watches a day starting from 0500hrs to 0900hrs and 1700hrs to 2100hrs dring my watch i need to look after all running machinaries for its satisfactory operation, most probably i may come across so many problems which i am supposed to sort it out or find the reason before chief engineer arrives.I am surronded by good and hard working people. what you learned: i learned so many things beyond the engineering aspects, most importantly i learned to manage the crew in the ship how to solve problems in the ship, how to take necessary action to the concern problem.
