Meet Gaspar Maissilas

I work as a stock keeper at the warehouse. My role is to manage the warehouse, such as receiving materials in the system, making supplies, ensuring that stock complies with the system, and serving our internal and external customers. I have been with Oceaneering for six years.

What department do you work in?

I work in the Supply Chain Management department.

How has your role progressed?

The progress I've made is indisputable. Today, I have greater visibility in the company, and not only have I learned a lot, I am able to work here with the latest technology, which has helped me to perform my duties more efficiently.

What I love about my job is that it does not have a routine. There is never a dull moment because there is always a lot to do.

What made you want to work for Oceaneering and why do you enjoy working here?

I wanted to work for Oceaneering because it is an ambitious company. A few years ago, Oceaneering started with only the ROV departement, and today Oceaneering have added other capabilities to better serve the local oil industry. I like Oceaneering because I was able to develop as an employee and receive more training that strengthened me in what I do. The dynamics that the company demands is salutary.

Tell us about a project on which you recently worked and what was memorable about it and what valuable lessons did you learn?

One memorable project was the modification frame. It was good because we had a lot of pressure, but we were encouraged to stay calm and see the piece totally remodeled. I learned that there is no impossible job, especially when there is commitment from everyone!

What was the challenge?

The challenge was to provide the material that was needed at the time as quickly as possible, otherwise we would delay the project.

What was the plan/solution?

The solution was to have dedicated personnel checking picking plans daily.

How was the job executed?

We went to our stock area and selected all raw material which was to be used in the project. We then notified our purchasing team, to ensure that we did not make mistakes in the project. Since it was the first major project of this type to be awarded, we knew it could lead to future work. Because it was so important, it was like a test for me.

How have you seen our Mission, Vision, and Values (MVV) in action during your time at Oceaneering?

The Mission, Vision, and Values are ambitious. It drives us to have a different work culture and because of them, we have become more and more professional.
