Seafood Processor – Closes 6/1/17

Leader creek Fisheries

Position Seafood Processor
Employer
Job Description Come experience Alaska and take part in the Bristol Bay salmon run! Leader Creek Fisheries is a unique company, offering many perks to employees while specializing in wild and sustainable salmon. Airfare and housing are provided by the company, as well as a competitive wage. Now accepting applications for the summer of 2017!

Perks of Leader Creek:
Airfare: Leader Creek will provide round trip transportation from Seattle, WA to our plant located in Naknek, AK.
Housing: Room and board is provided at no cost.
Food: All meals and break food are provided by Leader Creek.
Pay: Competitive wage, starting at $10/hour and lots of overtime.
Overtime Hours: Earn $$ for tuition.
Summer Job: Salmon season runs from approximately June 15th- August 5th.
Katmai National Park and Preserve: Opportunities available to explore beautiful Bristol Bay. LCF will provide travel assistance for interested employees.

Positions:
As a salmon processor at Leader Creek Fisheries, your work can encompass a number of different activities and tasks. Processors do everything from cleaning fish and trimming fillets to loading freezers and boxing the finished product. Your specific job as a processor will be determined by the the quantity of fish we receive at the plant, our production capacity and schedule, and finally, your aptitude, abilities, and attitude.

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 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.

Pay:
Processors can expect to work 14 to 16 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 quantity of overtime hours. Overtime hours are where the money is at, and what 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.

Qualification Please see description.

Perfect Summer Job To Make MONEY – Make Money Working in AK this Summer – Closes 5/15/17

Position Perfect Summer Job To Make MONEY – Make Money Working in AK this Summer
Employer Red Salmon Cannery – A Division of North Pacific Seafoods
Job Description

Red Salmon Cannery is hiring seafood processors for the 2016 Salmon Season!
The salmon season begins in mid to late June, and can last until the end of July. Because of this, you have the opportunity to work
for a short amount of time, and earn a LARGE PAYCHECK.
Red Salmon Cannery is a division of North Pacific Seafoods and is located in Naknek, a village in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska.
Bristol Bay is known as the Red Salmon Capital of the World.
Each first- year processor will earn $10.00 per hour, and $15.00 per hour for overtime worked. During the peak of the season, fishing
is heavy and our facility operates 24 hours a day. At this point, you will work up to 16 hours a day, 7 days a week, with no days off.
That means lots of overtime and lots of money.
We are looking for hard- working employees who have the commitment and mindset to push through long, hard days – the return of a
LARGE PAYCHECK is worth it.
Red Salmon Cannery provides:
FREE room and board to all employees who successfully complete the entire season. Separate male and female quarters are
available, housing 2 to 4 people each. Linens and laundry services are also provided at no cost.
FREE three meals a day, and break food. There is a salad bar, and we also have an amazing baker who makes his own delicious
donuts and cookies.
FREE personal protective equipment (PPE), such as boots, raingear and gloves
– Access to payphones throughout the property because most cell phone carriers do not work in the remote location of Naknek,
Alaska. However, Verizon is one carrier that does work.
FREE access to desktop computers and WiFi connection with limited connectivity…. It is Alaska after all.
Last but not least, Red Salmon Cannery provides roundtrip transportation to the processing facility from your point of hire (either Seattle, WA or Anchorage, AK), as long as you successfully complete your employment agreement. If you quit or get discharged
before the season ends, you will be responsible for the cost of your return transportation.
You get yourself to Seattle or Anchorage and we will take care of the rest!
