Customer Server (Former Employee) – Stockbridge, GA – March 1, 2019
A morning at silverbay is pretty chill, go in set up for the day setting up the dining room, the kitchen (drink station, expo line, salad bar) Working there has taught me a lot as my first serving job i learned how to work well under pressure and also handle multiple things at once, management was okay a little unorganized at first so it was kind of hectic overall the environment is okay, i would say the hardest part of the job is picking up the slack of workers who dont want to work as a team and who are too into themselves.i enjoyed meeting lifetime friends and learning things that will help with future jobs
Captain John Brantuas (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA 98199 – December 10, 2018
we wake up at four thirty am and work until about eleven at night with the deliberate goal of casting our gear out to catch as many salmon as safely and efficiently as possible. in between hauling out net on board, I was the appointed cook as was responsible for feeding the crew pre-breakfast, breakfast, lunch, post lunch, and dinner meals. aside from the act of fishing, we were all responsible for safe travel through alaskas south eastern archipelago. to keep ourselves busy during travel we would maintain the integrity of our vessel via repair and cleaning. the hardest part was the lack of sleep. the most enjoyable parts were, the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness and when it was over.
I learned I am capable of bending the limits of my body and mind to adapt to any work environment.
Seafood Processor (Former Employee) – Valdez, AK – December 3, 2018
This is really hard work but as I said it provides a really good pay, its a seasonal Job in Alaska, we would work 16 hours per day every day. You need to wear your positivism every day after your body screams from pain. Overall its a great experience in a gorgeous place.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Naknek, AK – November 29, 2018
This company has been notoriously known for mistreating it's employees; I personally think it comes down to so many people in management not knowing how a manufacturing plant should run. As of last year, 2017, they have hired some new people that really know what they are doing; So, I think things will slowly get better. There were many changes for the better this 2018 Salmon season in Naknek.
I enjoyed my 13 years with silver bay. They worked well with my schedule. I worked my way to assistant manager and couldn't move up further. The environment taught me how to deal with difficult situations.
Freezerman (Former Employee) – Valdez, AK – October 29, 2018
A job if you are traveling and you like seasonal work. Valdez is a very beautiful nature filled friendly town. Full of life culture and great seasonal work. You will meet awesome people from around the world.
No tolerance or caring for the sick and injured on the job
Fish Processor (Former Employee) – Alaska – October 25, 2018
I really didn’t like this Job because I would have to work so many Hrs. Then inside the warehouse it’s cold because we have to keep this Seafood at a good temperature. They pay really good but I don’t think the job is worth it!
FORKLIFT DRIVER (Former Employee) – Sitka, AK – October 24, 2018
Good company to work for. Seasonal work which can be hectic and not really a regular schedule. Atypical day could be going to work at 7 am and staying until midnight to 1 am. The management in my department was Excellent.
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
Production Foreman (Former Employee) – Naknek, AK – August 21, 2018
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.
Server/Cashier (Former Employee) – Simpsonville, SC – August 18, 2018
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
