Great entry level job if aspiring for plant operations or tankering.
Dock Operator (Current Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – November 6, 2017
As a dockman, your day will consist of constant communication with plant and vessel personnel and record keeping all events that take place during the time you are on the job. You will learn basics in process operation, mechanical systems, products being transported, and safety. Depending on your department, most managers are decent with a firm background in the industry but make no mistake - the culture as well as the management can change overnight which leaves employees indulging in rumors as well as questioning management when production is critical. 90% logistics 10% labor is a constant with the hardest part of the job being available on-call and working more than 12 hours a day. SGS PSC does have a wonderful schedule for most places which balance work and family time.
Excellent coworkers, great training programs, great benefits
All SGS cares about in plant A freeport tx is the bottom line of washing railcars. Pay is low and training is hard to pick up because of needing to do so many hopper cars in a 12 hour shift. And that 12 is usally a 14 to 16 hour day.
its a job
they dont care about the people just the bottom line
goal of 100% safety makes your life safe at home and at work.

commited to safety every day on all platforms. In all locations, night or day. They are always read to help you as an employee and as a person. Swing shift can be tricky at times but its also worth the free time during the week days.

Dock Operator (Current Employee) – Donaldsonville, LA – July 22, 2017
Not a bad place to work. I enjoy the paid holidays and overtime. I wish they had more people that can take your place but it seems to me they can't hire people fast enough or they don't care to hire when we have too much work going on.
Loader (Current Employee) – Plaquemine, LA – June 27, 2017
SGS is not a bad company at all to work for. However, i don't recommend going to the shin tech plaquemine site. We work around some really dangerous chemicals and we work our butts off. We are not paid as much as deserved. It's sad when you work really hard and get all the overtime you can work but you still live paycheck to paycheck. It's sad.
Recieve orders around 6-8pm for the next day, traveled to jobsite (dock) anywhere in Ohio, PA, KY, W. VA, IN, IL, TN to either Load or Offload Dangerous Liquids . Sign all the Documents that were needed for the Barge, then I would inspect the barge to ensure that it was able to pass inspection. I would then start the transfer until it was completed or until I was relieved by another Tankerman. After the transfer was complete I would secure the barge and head home. The hardest part would be not able to spend quality time with the Family on a set schedule and dealing with unbearable weather both HOT and COLD. The most enjoyable time is spending time on the water watching river traffic.
paid milage from home of record, never recieved orders consistency on timely manner
zero work/life balnace, lower wage for industry standards

Very good company to work for. like every company it has its draw backs. They have a few things to work on but as far as i'm comcerned, if the money was where it should be for the work we do, i'd make a career out of SGS.
