These reality shows are a bunch of crap. These people are only doing a very few things to get people to think how great they are. They use it as advertisement to get you to buy their products ,go to their parks or stores. If you are shown three of these people there a hundred that get the same tretement in these large companies and nothing changes it is all about the money. These companies don't care about the people they exploit and use not even after being exposed. They just want you to think they have done something so you come to spend money in their compinies. If they would treat all employees fairly and equal their companies would explode with growth because word of mouth is the best salesman ever.
this show is the biggest farce on tv. just crap
Well, Did he kick their asses after he revealed himself ?
I watch the show and it proves to me over and over that the upper managment does not know what it takes to do the "grunt" work. Does not matter if your burger flipper, server, construction worker, what ever, the upper mucky mucks have no idea what we do and how it gets done. Give us stupid rules and expect them to be followed. Raise the sales but put it on sale for less money.
Mom - the reverse can also be said. The deck hands and line workers would probably take quite some time to learn how to manage and effectively run a big business. There's a learning curve for every task.Often the "stupid rules" are put in place as international, state/provincial, and/or local laws and regulations. As Mr. Bodal stated, things have changed a lot, particularly in areas of safety.
This is one of the most BS reality shows. You can carry it off a couple of times but after 1 1/2 years...by now all employees know...even those at sea for 6 months...Dang...you bring a camera crew and all your staff has to do the first day is google their company! And this is the lead in to a great show "Gifted Man" with low ratings...because of this show. DUH! Not believable one iota.
At 73 , I still drive class 8 construction trucks,loaders,dozers,blades,etc. ,but a 10 or 12 hour day is a bit hard.
"....Working as a deckhand meant facing some "very hairy moments" and regular sea temperatures of 10 below." I did not realize that sea water could get to 10 below.....
ARMCHCHAIR Quaterbacks could use this story
Well, I think there was a lot more to be taken away from this opportunity to integrate with crews and find the job "tough" 22 years out. There are jobs I've had that are honestly young men's gigs and it wouldn't be a surprise that I couldn't do them as I used to. Bodal could've instituted a mentor training period instead of "trial by fire", a bonus system for making grade, and instituted safety training. Just watching the crab fishing on another show seemed to offer more insights to me than he apparently received while actually being there and having had previous experience. Internet is fine if scheduled by the captain in down time, but if it interferes with the ability to obtain sleep etc., (internet addiction) the time spent on line should be considered without looking at an employee's surfing info which could be prejudicial. It could also be used for other things condusive to the company (training, information, upgrades in processes/procedures, technical info) or educationally for crew members who'd like it (free GED's, or Citizenship, company paid classes, etc.). It was nice to pay for what he did - but the job itself could've used some changes also.
