Good pay, awful job, decent company

Fisheries Observer (Former Employee)
Anchorage, AK

I worked at Saltwater as a contractor for more than a year

ProsPays well and provides an adventurous job opportunity in scenic locations, great way to save up money as you have little or no expenses, can see lots of whales and marine life in the summer

ConsWorking on fishing boats is terrible, lots of manual labor involved, no days off, long odd hours, terrible weather conditions, sleep deprivation, etc

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good company in transition

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Saltwater as a contractor

ProsContract work lets you make a lot of money in a short period of time. This company still has some pretty good boats to work on and they seem to be expanding into new biological services which might open some interesting opportunities.

ConsThe company used to be really good at getting prior observers preferential contracts but a lot of the people that made working for them nice have left. Not sure what it's like now, but the NPGOP restructuring has changed a lot of things for Saltwater and it seems like they are going through a rough transition.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key.
