Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A totally disorganized, misaligned and poor culture. Multiple levels of positions are interrelated. "Good Ole' Boys Club" Department Supervisors will verbally swear, threaten and almost to the point of physical interfere. Do not trust nobody.. you will be thrown under the bus just to make them look good.

Good job, hoping for better pay

Good job, hoping for better pay. The job is good and easy it’s a cooled environment but the pay isn’t the most for the job or type of work that is performed

Rushed, back breaking, underpaid

Management speaks no English whatsoever, they work you to the bone, wages not worth the pain you'll endure physically, schedule subject to change and inconsistent with no prior knowledge nor headsup.

Pros

A 5mins break & 30mins lunch

Cons

No advantages and management speaks no English whatsoever.

Lots of hours, plenty of opportunity for money but no home life

I’ve been working here for 7months now, when I first started i hardly understood spanish. Some of the supervisors (the ones i have at least) definitely will treat you different if you look mexican but don’t speak spanish. They like to yell at you if you don’t understand something instead of trying to explain it to you. You work 6 days a week, 10-11hr shifts. I hardly had time to cook dinner and relax when i got home before having to do it all over again. You can make money doing this job but if you dedicate your whole life to it, not worth it imo.

Pros

Hours, a little more money, and you can take advantage of break time

Cons

short breaks, impatient supervisors, low staffed

Ambiemte hostil

Pesima planificacion, no se trata con respeto al personal de produccion, contratan a cualquier tipo de personas, no tienen normas de seguridad industrial, su sistema de inocuidad del producto es deplorable, obligan al personal a trabajar horas excesivas, no respetan el tiempo de descanso del empleado, los sanitarios parecen de un bar de mala muerte. Dios me salve de volver, amen.Poor planning, production personnel are not treated with respect, they hire any type of people, they do not have industrial safety standards, their product safety system is deplorable, they force staff to work excessive hours, they do not respect break time From the employee, the toilets look like a seedy bar. God save me from coming back, amen

Great place to work, very family oriented.

Its a great place to work, but they are behind technology wise. Change happens really slow, cause they are used to doing things the old way. The pay is great.

Pros

family oriented

Cons

Benefits, vacation and or sick time is not good.

Tampa Bay Fisheries

I learned a lot at Tampa Bay Fisheries. I am grateful for the opportunity Tampa Bay Fisheries gave me to help better myself as a worker and individual. I enjoyed the work and I was able to work a great number of hours to help support my family. Although the benefits and pay could have been better, I am still thankful for the experience.

The Durectorless Ship Beeare of the Titanic

7. The Directionless Ship They have no clear plan for the future, employees don't know long-term goals, senior leadership fails to adequately communicate. It is bad that bad with lack of a clear direction. It's inevitably going to hit the icebergs or big challenges over time and can become in danger of sinking it. Companies should be forthright about where they stand financially, where they see themselves going, and should be willing to talk about any major challenges. Good luck if you think your going to find a truth out of the CEO’s lips The hiring team is unable to discuss openly what direction the company hoping to go, and that’s your first clue that they lack a plan for growth and that the foundation is shaky. No matter how promising it may look to the you or how much buzz surrounds the company’s latest product, the value proposition and forecast are unclear, the company does not have a winning strategy. They lost all hope when the former sales VP/President retired and the CEO brought in a leftover that lost his job from a big chain account. We all know how the story ends and there really isn’t enough lifeboats for everybody, and you better believe that ships sinking

Pros

No Opinion

I do not wish to comment on my tenure with this company. As a Christian, some things are better left unsaid. As it is written in proverbs, "Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues." (Proverbs 17:28). Although, I was successful from the World's standards...I was compensated well.

Pros

Great income

Cons

No Comment

Talked with people all day long!

Answering phones continually. Seafood industry. Demanding in nature. Most enjoyable part was building daily relationships with every client and worker.

Pros

Able to be myself

Cons

Not enough folks that spoke English

hazardous work area

I have work for Tampa bay fisheries for three years. and in that time I've had to deal with a leaking roof over electrical panels. and unsafe work conditions and very little training for example the three years I've been there I have not been trained to use an ammonia mask. I would have to say the hardest part of the job would be working on the roof on the condensers with a catwalk we would have to climb the pipes to get to the top of the condensers
