I know of a lot of people that work for Southern Towing Co. out of Memphis. My family has worked for and with them for about 15 years now. I'm sure there are a lot of good companies to work for but at Southern, they treat you more like family and not just a number or a hand. They have taken care of my family through some really hard times and if you are serious about your job, they will take care of you.

i happen to work for crounse and its the cheapest one on the river. im quiting and going somewhere else. but if you like being underpaid and treated like shit then thats the company for you. and as for the ass kissers that want to get on here and defend this peice of crap company you also know its true. but go ahead and work yourself to death for low pay, crapy benefits and an awful retirement

I used to work for southern towing and pay not all that great . Then I working for hunter marine now . The pay here is good . I know they are hiring now but the pay for inexperience is about the same everywhere until you work yourself up to experience. It really depends what kind of schedule you prefer.

I worked out on the water a long time.It depends on what your goals are.If you want to deck,ARTCO.If you want to be a tankerman,DIXIE CARRIERS.If you want to get in wheelhouse quick go work with the coonasses anywhere along Intracoastal Waterway,if you can put up with them.

After 31 years out there, I can tell you towboating is not the same as it used to be. Try Blessy Marine. They have beautiful boats, and I hear that ole man Blessy treats his employees with respect!

Not to call you wrong but you got that backwards.Dixie Carriers bought Kirby.I was working for Brent when Dixie Carriers bought them out.We then started running under Kirby.I used to get company magazine every quarter.
