Seasonal (Former Employee) – Valdez, AK – September 13, 2018
When working there I made friends with people from all over the country. The work Itself was not something to scoff at, but if you work hard and you show it they give you recognition, because they value hard workers, because they know they're the ones going places. Overall the place was a great work environment with some amazing people at the helm.
Fast Pace,Result Driven,Goal Oriented,Awesome company

Working for Silverbay Seafoods was amazing. Hours worked daily were between 12 to 16hrs. The company is very goal oriented since the salmon season in alaska last around 4months, so as long as our fleet was able to find fish, our processing plants were running non-stop. There is a culture of family within each plant, as well as hardwork and teamwork. I learned most of my professional skills working for SIlverbay Seafoods, such as scheduling,attendance of over 300 people per shift,problem solving,multitasking and crew leading.

If you ever get the chance to get a job at silver bay seafood I would highly recommend you try it for a week, just for the experience. Everyone needs at least one horrible job experience that would be an opportunity to gain yours.
Corporate Fleet Accountant/Senior Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Sitka, AK – August 2, 2018
One of the best companies in the industry. Still small enough to care about their people. I watched people go from working on the fish processing line to become senior managers at the company based soley on talent and work ethic.
Compensation and benefits. Good management.
Long hours during fishing season. Can be stressful.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Alaska – July 24, 2018
very bad company don't go you will die no break, sometimes no lunch, long hours you will get sick and die for sure, so many people quit the job on the first week, and you have to leave with no money at all.
very bad some people quit on the first week to much is to much
SEAFOOD PROCESSOR (Former Employee) – Valdez, AK – July 15, 2018
I love working at silver bay because it was a seasonal job, we go out in Alaska twice a year, we go 3 months in winter season and 6 months for summer season. Out there you meet different kinds of people from different cultures and background. I love to surround myself with different people, the is hard but with different energy you keep moving, we work 16hrs a day
FISH ROE PROCESSOR (Former Employee) – Alaska – June 7, 2018
Silver bay Seafoods is not a job i think anyone will like, the hours are long, pay is decent and your away from family for months at a time. I will say this thought, its an experience you will never forget.I meet some amazing friends, learned valuable life lessons and really appreciated my jobs after. If your young and want something new and exciting git it a try but it is not for the faint of heart.
Amazing Experience, Great Friends, Beautiful Location
Amazing opportunity to become creative in your work
Analyst (Former Employee) – Ketchikan, AK – February 20, 2018
My relationship with SBS was a bit quirky, as I was also contracted as a commercial fisherman. The company is very flexible on work schedules after the first few weeks depending on the nature of your projects.
I was lucky to already be on the front lines of the industry so the work I did in the field only enhanced my ability to analyze and make sense of the catch data on the back end.
I would recommend to folks looking to gain vast exposure to a market that is in dire need of further analysts, data, tracking and information in order to sustain a healthy salmon and fish population moving forward.
