    I have been working at Kirby Inland Marine


    Kirby will hire you,having no experience, and provide the training needed to take you where you want to go in this industry.


    Kirby pays it's employees less than they would make doing the same job for any other company in the marine transportation industry.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kirby Inland Marine.

    Interview Details

    -Filled out online application

    -Received a phone call a month later (which was ALSO a phone interview to feel you out). Before hanging up, I was asked to participate in 2 online assessments (one behavior and one logical). They say it's not pass or fail but it is.

    -Received a phone call inviting me in for an interview.

    -At the interview there was a 9th grade word reference test I had to complete. I believe this was in place to make sure no one else took your online assessments for you.

    -After passing that, you go in for the interview. The interview is more conversational than anything.

    -Afterwards you fill out a conditionals employment offer along with new hire paperwork.

    -Then you head over to the doctor/clinic where you have to fill out ALL your health information. EVERY injury, surgery, prescription, etc. it's about 50 pages long (not exaggerating). Blood/Alcohol test,Physical, Vision test, Breathing test, X-Ray, and EKG.

    -After results come back OK, you'll receive notice when and where your training takes place for two weeks.
