Hickey, ChristopherDC3Apr 23, 2002 – Nov 12, 2005I learned a lot on the Essex. The ship wasn't bad but the way the chain of command in Engineering conducted business left something to be desired. Piss-poor planning combined with Micro-management at times made life hell. But it is what you make
Metzos, JET2Jun 2002 – Jun 2004Chain of command here is terrible. No sense of order. Low standards. Terrible command climate. Captain is lazy. Ship is a reflection of him, IMO
