Junior Engineer

Junior Engineer (Current Employee)
Paducah, KY

I have been working at Ingram Barge full-time for more than a year

ProsFriendly Co-Workers
Helps with family issues without being intrusive
Excellent brown water pay and benefits
Usually excellent living conditions

ConsSix hours on, six hours off workday
Crew dispatch can be difficult to get a hold of
Human Resources (generally considered a con anyway)
As a Junior Engineer you work four weeks on and you get two weeks off

Advice to Senior ManagementIt seems that half the time I call to make travel arrangements any one of the three dispatchers that I have had are either not available or are out for the day.

It's all politics.

Leadman (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ingram Barge

Pros6 months off a year, decent benefits,

Consunderpaid, isolated for a month at a time with practically no freedoms, company treats deckhands like trash if they have a problem they are the easiest to replace, company puts unworthy people in charge consistently

Advice to Senior ManagementGive every boat a survey every six months to be done anonymously by the crew and truthfully investigate problems, don't just investigate until your ass is properly covered.
