    I have been working at American Seafoods as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a great way to pay off school and save a lot of money. But very stressful at the same time.

    Cons

    You work with many people from all over the world with many different cultural views, which adds a little strain to the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many family ties within the chain of command. Makes the work place unfair.

    I worked at American Seafoods as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    working factory trawlers in alaska was the best legal way to make a quick buck back in the day, contracts were 90 days and can extend. harder workers could make their way to the better performing FTs

    Cons

    100+ people & less than 10% women out to sea for 3 months just a few stops to Dutch to offload- you do the math. sexual harassment is not a company accepted policy- uh reported, at least those who wanted to work. it's a hard, bone grinding job, mentally & physically. Know what you're getting into before you sign up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    last year of employment was 1999, no option for that

    I worked at American Seafoods

    Pros

    Use them to network within the industry.

    Cons

    If you aren't Norwegian or in with the "popular" management group you are overlooked and disregarded. Unfair bias against women and minorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is not "managed", it's out of control in regards to checks and balances. There isn't any "boundaries". NO accountabiliy anywhere within management. It was embarrassing to hear the industry leaders talk about how awful the management behaves.
