Our Jobs

Red Salmon Cannery is hiring seafood processors for the 2016 Salmon Season!!!

Each first year processor will earn $10.00 per hour and $15.00 per hour of overtime worked. Our facility operates 24 hours a day during the peak of the season and you will be working up to 16 hours per day. That means lots of overtime and lots of money!!!!

Ideal Candidate

We are looking for hard working employees who have the mind set to not quit and know how to push through those hard days because they know the return of a LARGE PAYCHECK is so worth it. 

Being a fish processor is no easy task. Processors must be versatile and willing to perform a variety of tasks including, but not limited to, gutting, cleaning, packing and icing of seafood, assorted canning jobs; operating various types of machinery; and general cleaning of work areas.  Working conditions vary depending upon tasks assigned, which could include noisy areas where machines are operating, wet areas where seafood is cleaned, and cold areas such as walk-in freezers.  Much of the work is repetitive due to mechanization and large volumes of product processed.  In short, the nature of the work is not glamorous.

During the peak of the season, fishing is heavy and a tremendous amount of work is compressed into a short period of time. Employees will work up to 16 hours a day 7 days a week with no days off. When the fish is there it's MONEY making time and we need employees to be committed to the job.
