Ok place to work.
1st Mate (Current Employee) –  Columbus, KYJuly 8, 2017
Mostly good job security. There is room to move up but it takes a long time.
Heavy manual labor. Shifts may be 6 hours or 12 hours.
Hitches are 7, 14, 21, or 28 days at a time. Lots of time away from families.
River work gets grouped in with offshore and pipeline but does not compare in salary.
Overtime is not time and a half.
Pros
Job security. Meals provided.
Cons
Away from family, Work takes a toll on your body, Takes a few days home to get normal sleep schedule back.

Ingram Deckhand
Deckhand (Current Employee) –  Paducah, KYMay 23, 2017
Ingram is a nice company to work for. The benefits are extremely nice and very beneficial for a family. The hours are long and the time away from your family is the hardest part of the job.

Great place to work; company is always striving to find ways to improve employee work life balance. Industry is currently over supplied with equipment making operations difficult and job security uncertain.

Louisiana
Deckhand (Current Employee) –  LouisianaOctober 25, 2015
Right off the bat in orientation we were made to stay up 20+ hours during orientation that blew a hole through my head many others there.... Good retirement health and 401k benefits actual job pay is either average or slightly above average not the highest paying company on the inland river system but far from the lowest.... Mates/leadmen have attitudes in orientation and when they first meet you on the fleet instead of welcoming you... They tell you the captain is God which is only for a idiot to believe... Not much if any groceries on the boats for you to eat(other companies have big weekly grocery orders on each vessel for the crew) other than that be ready to work hard and long 12 hours a day.....
Pros
Free retirement, decent pay
Cons
No breaks, a lot of work, bad attitude crew

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNNovember 13, 2014
Working with Ingram Barge Company was fulfilling. The day started with printing reports needed to distribute to the proper management. The most challenging part of my job through out my multiple positions was deciphering the hand writing of the Vice President. and the most enjoyable part of the job was being creative with the different reports and presentations worked on
Pros
working with enjoyable people
Cons
30 minute lunch breaks

Coming in and doing book work was a typical day at work. I learned planning out days or weeks in ahead. The owner giving management jobs to do and making sure that it was done.
