Employee Benefits

As one of the nation’s busiest ports, we offer exciting career opportunities, competitive compensation and an excellent benefits package. In addition to benefits such as medical coverage, tuition aid reimbursement and a Defined Contribution Retirement plan, Port Houston also encourages commuting solutions through a vanpool program and flexible work week schedules in many locations. In addition, some employees work an Employee Trip Reduction (ETR) schedule with alternate Fridays off.
