Why Work For Us?
PSC created the shore tankerman industry in 1952, on the banks of the Mississippi River in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As the first and largest tankerman service in the U.S., we know the tankerman business better than anyone and have a long, proud history of success. We’re proud of the reputation we’ve earned for quality service.
Excellent Earning Potential
PSC offers industry-leading hourly wages, salary guarantees, mileage reimbursement, and other financial incentives. While our competitors have reduced pay or cut benefits during industry slowdowns, PSC has maintained our high total compensation packages for our tankermen during these times without fail.
Growth & Opportunity
Our company’s steady growth and the diversity of our operations provide stability to weather industry ups and downs as well as opportunities for our tankermen to advance in both our marine and plant operations. Many of our current supervisors, managers, and senior leaders started their PSC careers working as tankermen.
More Time At Home
While the nature of the tankerman industry still requires employees to work a 24-hour on-call schedule, PSC has made changes in the scheduling and dispatching processes to provide tankermen with scheduled off days, giving our employees more opportunities to spend quality time with their families.
Although we’ve grown from just a handful of tankermen to more than 3,500 employees across the country, we are committed to operating PSC in the same servant leader model established by our founder D.H. Haymon. Members of the Haymon family remain active in the company today serving on our senior leadership team.
Through the years, PSC has received numerous annual awards for safety and environmental performance. PSC is the only tankerman service to have received an honorable mention William M. Benkert Award, the U.S. Coast Guard’s premier award for marine environmental protection (in 2014 and 2002).
The Best of the Best
Our first PSC tankermen were the pioneers who laid the foundation for our company’s success, and the tankermen working for us today continue to lead the way in the finest maritime traditions of safety, quality, and reliability.
We Appreciate Our Employees
We host a variety of fun events throughout the year for our employees and their families. Shown below are some photos from recent crawfish boils held for our tankermen groups.
