Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAApril 10, 2018
Trident has more experienced people in the seafood business than I would have ever imagined. The employees tend to stay there for most of their careers if not all of it. It's a very supportive network with interesting roles in a great location.

Manufacturing Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Motley, MNJanuary 4, 2018
Nice to work for, pretty easy going. All nice coworkers and managers, the smell was a bit off-putting after a while though. It was just an intern position but if the right position was there I'd consider a permanent position.
Pros
Nice coworkers/managers, collaborative
Cons
Smelly

Processor (Former Employee) –  Tacoma, WA 98421December 28, 2017
Seasonal work, long hours, good experience working for a large seafood company in Alaska. Free food and boarding. Unlimited fish. No benefits, so better for short-term employment.

Stressful and Unhappy work environments
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, GADecember 21, 2017
Trident seafoods is a stressful place to work at because employees are working everyday, long hours, and never knowing if they are going to get fired on a daily bases. This is a environment that has negative vibes and lack of support. Their management is very poor and lack of leadership. I would advise no one to work here unless it is a last minute job and do not stay long because they will lie and fire you fast. They do not care about their employees at all.
Pros
decent money
Cons
Lack of support, Terrible management, and will fire you when ever they please

I enjoyed the work environment, although a lot was expected but not too much. There was adequate balance but plenty of trust and responsibility. We also received a chance to order product at a discounted price.

Packing line/Freezer Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 14, 2017
very fast paced working conditions, and lots of machinery to watch out for. its a great job if you like to just focus on work and nothing else. the management is one of the best I have ever had at a job. 12+ hours a day and 7 days a week once the seasons starts. the only downside is that you might have to relocate temporarily and its a contract job.
Pros
contract employees are given housing and three to four meals a day, plus you get 12+ hours a day of work.
Cons
job takes up all your time, so if you need to do something you have to wait till the end of your shift.
