SEAFOOD PROCESSOR

We are currently looking for a seafood processor with one year of experience (preferred) to work on board our catcher processor vessel. As a processor, you will be working on the production line where the smell of fish is always present and speed and accuracy are required.

Our employees work 12 to 16 hours per day, 7 days a week. Contract lengths vary depending upon the season and production needs. Successful employees will have the opportunity to extend for additional trips. There are no room and board charges while employed on our vessels. The bunking arrangements are modest, with 4 to 8 crewmembers per room.

All crewmembers are paid on a crew share basis (percentage of the value of the catch). Crewmembers accept financial risk when signing.

We are looking for hard working individuals who can handle tough conditions far from friends and family. The hours are long, and the work is hard and often tedious. We believe that hard work and a positive attitude should be rewarded, and we offer incentive bonuses to our most productive workers and we promote from within whenever possible.

Safety is a major concern at ASMG. As a crewmember, you will participate in frequent safety drills and meetings, and you must follow all safety rules and regulations. Your safety awareness and participation are part of your success aboard our vessels.
