What to expect:
Being a fish processor is not easy work. When the plant is running at full capacity you will be expected to work 16-18 hours a day, 7 days a week. You must have a strong work ethic, the discipline to get out of bed and get to work on time, and the desire to do the best you can each and every day. Some days you will be tired and have a bit of a cold; your muscles will ache and your feet will hurt. We need people who will work in spite of the discomfort. And while we do not need employees to arrive with any specific processing-related skills, we do need those who can learn quickly and are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Processors can expect to work 12 to 18 hours a day seven days per week through the peak of our season. Putting in such a large number of hours (100+ per week) results in a large number of overtime hours. Overtime hours allow you to make extra money, which makes working as a processor a great seasonal position. While there are no guarantees in the fish business, it has been our experience that employees who come prepared to work – and work hard when there is work – go away with good money.
