I've been in the marine industry for years, and for many of those years I was fortunate enough to not have to use an agency to help me find employment. However, since the downfall with the oil industry I found myself laid off, with no prospective leads on my own. I found Compass and an agent of theirs on LinkedIn and decided to give them a call. They were extremely helpful and very straight forward about how things have been and will be for a while. They made me feel very comfortable with my decision in reaching out to them, even after always hearing bad things about agencies and seeing these two reviews.. Within a week or so, I got a phone call about a job opening, which I accepted very graciously! It is easy to assume the worst when you don't contact the necessary people for answers to questions when filling out paperwork. I noticed on a few reviews of this place, they were concerned about the paperwork, I too was concerned seeing as though I have never dealt with anything like it, but I did what the agent told me to do if I had any questions or needed any assistance with the paperwork, I CALLED THEM AND ASKED! They were very helpful and to simply put it: YOU AREN'T REQUIRED TO PAY A FEE IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT A POSITION! It is stated plain as day on their app. Come on guys, no question is a dumb one... seriously just call and ask if you have any concerns! I for one am very thankful for the team at Compass for helping me find work when half of the industry is drawing unemployment or forced to work on land. I would recommend them to any of my fellow mariners who may be in need of help like I was.

I consulted with the accountants at Wood, Singleton, Hicks, and Haisten after learning that my previous accountant had not been keeping a close eye on my business accounting. I could tell a difference just in the way WSHH talked to me about my books, and felt relieved that I was turning things over into very capable and careful hands. They have done excellent work to get things straight for me, and the knowledge that such detailed and knowledgeable accountants are keeping up with things for me is worth every penny!
