Our Deckhands

With every deckhand we hire, there’s a hope they will someday make a captain for us here at Terral RiverService. At Terral, we value our deckhands and the hard work they do to make sure we are able to go above and beyond for our customers.

We seek to hire deckhands who are willing to work hard and those who show integrity. If you are interested in a career at a growing company as opposed to just another job, Terral is the place for you. 

The job of a deckhand includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Securing barges together 
  • Securing boats to barges 
  • Line handling 
  • General boat cleaning 
  • Minor engine room work (i.e. oil changes) 
  • Painting 
  • Cooking 

Our deckhands work a 28-day on, 14-day off or a 14-day on, 7-day off schedule. 

*Applicants must have a valid driver’s license, high school diploma or equivalent, and dependable means of transportation to our Lettsworth, LA location.
