Help us bring Wild Alaskan Seafood to the table
JDock Fishing Company is a family-owned operation. We specialize in world-class charters & custom seafood processing but equally nourish our seafood market & gift shop. We see some of Alaska’s most beautiful catches on our dock. We value getting to share this experience with our customers & employees. Join us for no ordinary job where coworkers become family & take with you memories of a lifetime.
Located in Seward’s Boat Harbor, 120 miles south of Anchorage, and immersed in the electricity of Seward's fishing season.
About J-Dock Fishing Co
J-Dock was founded by Kamell Allaway ll in the early 2000s. When he suddenly passed in 2016 the Jdock family came together to carry on the dream. His wife, son, and daughter now run the operation in his honor. We spend long hours at the docks preparing our guest's catch for optimum longevity while sustaining a simple and natural process. Our seasons make for valuable memories, a unique experience, and strong character building. We hope you join us for the ride!
The Employee Experience
Working at J-Dock is a fast-paced high-energy job. We work long shifts, but we find the 19 hours of daylight and contagious joy from travelers to be encouraging. We get the opportunity to take someone's catch from a trip of a lifetime, package & ship it home for them to enjoy with family & friends year-round, that itself is rewarding.
We see a strong bond form amongst our employees every season. You will work with strangers from different parts of the world and then suddenly they become your family. We have a large percentage of returning customers so everywhere you look is a familiar face. You will find that this job is challenging at times, but your time here with us will be an adventurous, exciting, and a new experience.
Our ideal candidate is a team player who is hardworking, determined, motivated, socially inclined and customer service oriented.
Room and Board
Housing is available and the details will be discussed upon interview.
The greatest perk of all is to experience one of the most beautiful parts of Alaska with breathtaking mountains, exotic wildlife, and a fishing culture unlike any other. There are scenic hikes along with a variety of outfitters in town that will offer comped or discounted trips to J-Dock employees. If there is a last-minute opening available on one of our fishing charters, we will offer it to an employee if the work schedule permits.
Getting Here and Getting Around
Employees are responsible for their airfare to Anchorage as well as their transportation from Anchorage to Seward (train, shuttle, or car are all available options). Employees are also responsible for their transportation to and from work. We recommend a car. Bikes and other forms of transportation are available but are not always the best option. We often see a handful of our employees ride share together. These ride shares are not organized by the company and you are responsible for being on-time and present for your shift.
Aside from the exciting energy of J-Dock and the fishing community, you'll have time throughout the season to explore the stunning nature of Seward, Alaska through various hikes, kayaking, oceanic tours, helicopter tours, national parks, glacier viewings, zip lining, dog sledding, and much much more!!!
