Clear Favoritism; Unfair Practices and lack of Awareness
Seafood Processor (Former Employee) – Nebraska – October 14, 2018
A typical day at work on night shift consisted of waking up around 4p going to eat and then going to work by 5:45p working for 4 hours then taking a break and then an additional break for lunch and final break before last four hours. Often the training was lacking and if you did not grasp what you were doing rarely did anyone try to help you understand it.

Power Plant Operations - Project Assistant (Former Employee) – Dutch Harbor, AK – May 15, 2018
5 Stars across the board....
Westward Seafood's is one of the best companies to work for if you are able to get on with them full time.
The Power Plant teams are some of the hardest working and best team members that I have ever worked with. They drive to be the best and can help anyone achieve their goals regardless of whether or not you want to stay in the engineering fields.
Seafood Processor Seasonal (Former Employee) – Unalaska, AK – May 9, 2018
I consider myself to be an intelligent person, with many skill sets; None of which were utilized at this company. From day one the attitudes were abrasive and conniving. I consider this company one of the most heinous employers in the united states.

Maintain Freezer Plates, Water Temp (Former Employee) – Dutch Harbor, AK – February 19, 2018
I was given a place to live, food and in my case, help to get home to take care of problems. The people, although from every where, are friendly and willing to help you. You will work like on a Ship, when the season calls but your rewards come from within yourself.
Processor (Former Employee) – Unalaska, AK – February 13, 2018
A typical day at WSI/ASI lots of work lots of clean up. What i learned is that i need to keep my cool more then often. Management, well i believe it could be a better company if Manager would get more involved with the little people. Workplace Culture, simple routine, routine, routine Hardest part of the job, clean up and getting screamed at. Most enjoyable part of the job, $2,000 + dollars Net payday.
Save a good chunk of money
Not for people who can't live with out their Family.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Dutch Harbor, AK – January 17, 2018
Very poor management services ! They do not CARE about you at all! The security that works there are so stupid and act like they are the manager and when you asked them a question they hesitate to answer and act so stupid. This is not a good company to work with. I had a very bad experience with them. Furthermore, the employees that works there do not speak English at all, a lot of Filipinos works there and you would hear them talk Tagalog only,I find that very disrespectful.

The plant is on the island of Dutch Harbor, Alaska. Everything paid for. Repetitive work might be an understatement. It's an experience but not too many would leave there state to work for Alaska's minumum wage. The hours made up for it since we were working 12 plus hours, 7 days a week. Overall not too bad if you can handle the hours. Since everything is paid for you come home with all your savings from the season.
