I worked at Mediterranean Shipping Company full-time
Very challenging position, non monotonous, every day real problems to solve, improves your negotiations skills with partner lines. Average salary.
Take a lot of attention to details. no mistakes because they're expensive in this business. Availability almost 24/7. Had to work every other weekend.
Advice to Management
Since this job requires attention and availability almost 24/7 it would be great to have several shifts; several supervisors. Document your procedures so it would be easier train new employees.

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Mediterranean Shipping Company (Houston, TX) in June 2015.
The interview took place at Houston local offices and was of approximately 2 hours. It was conducted by Houston´s office manager, by the end of the interview he told me to let him know when I was ready to start all the process (since I´m a foreigner a lot of documentation and processes are needed).
