Pros: benefits right away!, time off, work as much as you want, easy to build up vacation time
Cons: what cons??
I worked for Ingram for roughly 6 months, pror to going to an overseas job.
In my time with Ingram, I learned that they do hire very knowledgable and caring professionals.
In my short stay ( I left on my own, which I think was a mistake on my part), I learned and experienced what the "Rough Neck" lifestyle is like and I enjoyed every minute of it.
I dont think I have had a job that I could work for 3 weeks straight, and then be off for 3 weeks. I loved that aspect of the job.
This job is not for everyone. Most of the folks that are "ON DECK" love their jobs and are always more then willing to teach you, show you anything you are unsure off. In essence they are your family away from your family, and we take care of our own!
from the Wheel house to being at the head of tow, it is just an awesome job!! the scenery always changes, eagles and sunshine one shift, fog and snow the next!! Have to love the diversity of it all.
But this job is not for the timid. If you doing like getting wet, cold, cold and wet, hot and sweaty and do not like physical work, this is not the job you want.
I just wish I stayed there instead of persueing the all mighty contractors paycheck...wasnt worth it if you ask me.
Thank you Ingram Barge Company for giving me the opportunity to work with you!! You truely are a family orientated company!!
