Employment Opportunities

Seafood processing is similar to production line work. The job entails constantly working with your hands, some heavy lifting, and standing for long periods of time. Our employees must work quickly in order to meet production deadlines. The work environment is very wet, cold and humid. At Snug Harbor Seafoods we take pride in providing a safe work environment for all employees. It is important that our employees have the ability to understand and follow instructions and safety rules.

Snug Harbor Seafoods operates a processing plant, receiving docks and a seafood store and is looking for individuals who are energetic, hard-working, and able to work well with others. The employment period is from March until October or layoff, whichever comes first. Occasionally, promotional opportunities arise within the production department and production support areas. We encourage all interested employees to apply for these positions.

There is no guarantee of hours.

If the work is so hard, why would anyone choose to do it?

Lots of overtime hours! Because seafood is a highly perishable product, it must be frozen as quickly as possible to maintain the highest quality. This is why the seafood industry offers more overtime than most summer jobs. All hours in excess of eight (8) straight-time hours in a day will be paid at the overtime rate of one and one ­ half ( 1 1Ž/2) times the base rate of pay.
