Been in the pipeline industry for over a year. Have a twic card. 12-14 hour a day 6 days a week. I'm burned out. I want to apply to Ingram or AEP. Are my chances any good with either company? Pay any good?

I've been seeing $23,000-$30,000 a year as a deckhand depending on the company. One website had the average at $36,000 a year. Keep in mind you are only working 6 months out of the year though...

I'm an Ingram Pilot. You will start around 30k/yr as a deck hand. Summer is easiest time to get hired because that's the highest turnover time of the year. Most won't work in the heat. Extra work is easy to come by if you want it, but its not required.

That's not to bad. I make that in 4 months, but I'm working my butt off for it. I need a slower pace. Can a person walk in and fill out a app. I'm not to far from the head office.

I filled out an online application for Ingram. And I am pretty sure that's the way it has to be done for Ingram at least. Don't quote me on that though.

We have very good insurance. Our retirement isn't bad and its far to complicated to explain here. Its essentially a 401k type retirement fund that Ingram contributes to at no cost to you. There is also the traditional 401k and Ingram will match funds contributed up to 5% of your pay at the following rates based on years of service: 1-5 @50%, 6-10@75%, 10+@100%.

Ingram is a very good company in all aspects. I was an employee there about 5 years ago who was fired. Most who get fired hate any company after that. I still say they are an excellent company. I was violating a new policy due to horseplay and the company was setting examples. I was one of the many lucky winners lol! They have strict but very needed rules for safety. I still to this day want my job back there.

Just got off the phone with Ingram, the gentleman from HR who was on vacation is now back. I asked him about the status of my application. He said they only have a few more spots to fill with Ingram and that I was passed over for a more qualified candidate. Not to sure why this happened, unless the person had actually river experience, as I do not.

The gentleman said 2 recruiters look over every application. But could not supply a reason as to why I was passed up. Back to the drawing board....

Yes. And just because they said no, don't give up. Reapply in a month. Summer is the highest turnover time because of the heat. And anytime Thinking.

To my knowledge they aren't at this time. Unless you have prior experience, Ingram has been primarily hiring folks with culinary degrees to be their cooks as of late.

My husband and one of my sons is a pilot/captain at ingram. They will give you a chance even if you don't have experience working on the river. My other son works in the office as a barge dispatcher at James Marine (just down the road from Ingram.
It's a good job to have (on the river) with good benefits. Just remember it's very hot work and hard work.It's cold in the winter too. If you go out there with the attitude of showing yourself to be a hard worker you will do fine. My husbands job of 16 years ended when he got on the river. He had worked at a plant and it closed. He went out at 38 yrs old and worked very, very hard. Hehas worked his way up to captain from deckhand in 12 years. My son has done the same and he had gotten an associates degree in criminal law. He went out on the river for Ingram and worked his way up into the wheelhouse in about 8 years. You can do it! Do whatever they tell you to do. Don't complain. Bug the heck out of em until they hire you! Good Luck!
I had a phone interview from ingram does it take a while for them to call you back. They have left me wondering. Please help if possible
THANKS
