Featured Employee | Mickey O’Rear

This month Terral wanted to highlight two of our team members who have switched from our marine operations to shoreline support. Mickey O’Rear and Joseph Jackson.


Mickey started with Terral back in 2012 as a Deckhand, with around one year of experience. Mickey put the work in and by 2014, he had already worked his way into our Steersman program. After 260 days in our program, he graduated as a Mate Pilot. After one year of Mate Pilot, Mickey then became a Pilot. In 2016 he officially became a captain on one of our boats! Now in 2022, Mickey has shown the skills needed to move up once again and has taken the title of Port Captain of our Northeast Louisiana operations in Lake Province LA!
