Glacier Fish Company is hiring for Processors to work onboard our 2 at-sea processing vessels in the Bering Sea, Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Alaska and Aleutian Islands.

The job requires physical endurance, repetitive lifting, agility, prolonged periods of standing, teamwork and self-discipline. Crew members make a contractual commitment to being at sea for extended periods of time, leaving family and friends at home.
There are many positions onboard a vessel. They range from a Captain or Mate in the wheelhouse, Bosun or Deckhand on deck, Chief Engineers in the Engine room, Chief Steward and Assistant Cooks in the Galley, Supervisors and Foremen in the factory.
