Employment — General Terms
The following are some of the terms that apply to employees of VessEx.
Although VessEx accepts teammembers without regard to race,
gender, or national and ethnic background, each applicant must
possess a passport that allows him to travel freely among
countries. Applicants who possess passports issued by
countries such as Yemen, Syria, Israel, etc., and who cannot
readily obtain visas to certain countries may not qualify for
employment, although VessEx will consider this issue on a
While every effort is made to advise each teammember of the
projected duration of an assignment, an operation may exceed the
originally anticipated completion date. Accordingly, each
teammember must agree to remain with his team until the conclusion
of the operation, unless he and VessEx agree in advance to any
time limitation on his commitment.
VessEx teammembers are paid per-day, in whole days,
portal-to-portal (from the time they leave their homes to the time
they return home). All expenses are paid by VessEx.
Teammembers are paid at the conclusion of each operation.
Although pay scales vary by the type of operation and the
teammember's position (master, chief officer, AB, etc.), they
generally fall within one of three categories: asset extractions
with clearance, asset extractions without clearance and ship
Extractions with clearance pay slightly higher than the industry
standard for a delivery crewmember. Extractions without
clearance pay substantially higher than this standard, often
providing a per-day rate which is two to three times higher than
standard delivery-crew rates. Pay for ship protection
assignments are determined on a case-by-case basis.
