All seafarer employment is managed by SMT’s Crewing Department. We maintain our own crewing office in Sopot, Poland and work in partnership with a global network of skilled crewing agencies that are committed to our principles of hard work, safety and professionalism.
Career developmentWe expect a solid commitment to hard work and professionalism that is regularly evaluated by our officers and fleet management. Our goal is consistent re-employment of high-performing personnel, and we make long term investments in our people and their families. We reward excellent work with fair compensation and the promise of promotion.
We are proud of the fact that 20% of our 1500 seafarers have been sailing with us for more than 10 years. More importantly, many of our senior officers began as lower ratings and have risen to the highest levels in our organization.

We consider our cadets to be the future of our organization, and those who excel in our training program are actively recruited for ongoing employment.
