    Thanks for this info Sir.

    When I read this articles, I rememmber the memory about my story life when I had graduate from University. I imagine to work at ships or Cruise, Becasue for Indonesia people, the salery is very interesting, and I think, I can visit some big city in the world with cost FREE.

    But, There are so many problem, so I cannot follow my dreams. For example, the are some agent just want our money, and they dont send us to get the job at cruise.

    After that, because difficulty of capital, now I’m going to Online Business. Good By my dreams ..

    but I hope, one days …I could sail as a passenger

    Hello,

    My name is Radek. I leave in Poland. I’m interested in your job as a
    Slot Technician. I worked in this position for 3 years for a company
    Onboard Leisure on Irish Ferries. I have very good experience as a Slot
    Technician. I was responsible for repair and maintenance of video and slot
    machines. Exchange and clearance of money from the change machine.
    I explained to passengers how to play on the machines and how to pay with
    cash prize machines. I think that I am the right person for the position
    of slot technician.

    Regards
    Radek

    Hi mate,

    thinking about doing the ships myself. Did a contract with Greater Atlantic in 2001 as a dealer, now have over 7 years experience with TCS John Huxley as tech support. Just a quick question; does it take a long time to become slot #2 and how does that scale work?

    Regards,

    Dan.

    I’ve not worked as a slot tech on cruise ships since 2001 myself. If you’re not happy with your possible promotion prospects with your current employer then type up your CV / resume & send it to companies you would like to work for.

    Check your earnings potential! I was head hunted by RCCL techs but quit after 5 and a half months of a 6 month first contract. I was promoted to #2 (of 3) tech status, transferred to a second & third ship but, despite claims of the commissions I’d earn, I still wasn’t earning equal to the flat slot mgr wage I was earning with NCL.

    took 6 months off & called NCL (again) & got another contract with them. Like I said, build your CV! To me, Huxley = roulette wheels. It’s your time served with slot machines that counts. Those slots have come a long way since 2001. Hope to get a job as a tech, do the job well, learn the machines. Any (good)slots mgr will spot if you have built a good grasp of todays slot machines & recommend you for a promotion.

    TIP! There’s no such thing as a stupid question if you don’t know the answer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions of a slot manager! Also join this forum to help you get help online to fix problems. This forum sure helped me when I went back to slot teching for 3 months at the start of 2010!
