Employment

As one of the nation’s busiest ports, the Port of Houston Authority offers exciting career opportunities, competitive compensation and an excellent benefits package.

In addition to such benefits as medical coverage, tuition aid, and a retirement plan, the Port Authority also encourages commuting solutions through a vanpool program. In addition, some employees work an Employee Trip Reduction (ETR) schedule with alternate Fridays off as ETR days.

During the summer months, an internship program introduces college students to a wide variety of careers available at the port. Applications for this program are accepted annually. Additional information appears here when the application period is open.

Applications for employment with the Port Authority are accepted online. Current job openings include additional information and an online application for each. The online application allows applicants to attach a current resume. Applications/resumes are kept on file for one year.

The Port Authority does not hire any of the labor that works on the docks at the public or private terminals. To apply for those jobs, contact the various unions directly:
