    I worked at Seafood City full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent work for students or workers looking to start a new career. You will learn many new skills.

    Cons

    Depending on your position, you risk injury due to high-risk equipment and demanding work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to suggestions or concerns from supervisors and line-level employees. They work directly with customers and with equipment, so they can be the first to identify potential problems accurately, while providing effective solutions.

    I have been working at Seafood City full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are Filipino and you just came from the PH, they would more likely hire you because I like to believe that the company would like to give newcomers a chance to start a new life in a new place. They are flexible with scheduling and are easy to coordinate with. It is a great place to be with fellow Filipinos too. Being SC, I love the fact that I got to handle my own time and workload.

    Cons

    There is a high turnover rate mainly because there is no room for growth. Every year, an increase of $0.30 is awarded, which is pretty low. There are no benefits. Supervisors and the like get underpaid. A lot of office politics. Job responsibilities a re vague and relied on to me.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt the American way of leading and team building. Leave crab mentality in the PH.

    I worked at Seafood City full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is willing to spend for equipment for the express purpose of efficiency. Employees there are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    There is a noticeable lack of professionalism in the workplace. There is no set parameter for career growth. Some decisions are made in an arbitrary manner that is contrary to the growth of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Treat them as assets, not another "mouth to feed". Invest in them.

    I worked at Seafood City full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch if you worked in Grill City and the food was pretty good

    Cons

    Worked in high stress conditions at time, with understaffed team and management expecting worker to stay for OT, not much room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make sure have enough employees set to work on weekends.

    I have been working at Seafood City part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place for new Filipinos in the U.S. They accept pretty much anyone of age even if you have not much experience. They are all friendly and happy employees. They are very considerate of schedules too.

    Cons

    Very slow and little raise. Branch Managers should be more professional and needs improvement in accomplishing their duty as managers. Overall working environment is very Filipino in the sense that instead if pulling each other up, it is the opposite. Very little appraisal and a lot of seen mistakes and hidden agendas.

    Advice to Management

    They should try to be more concerned and caring for their employees so that their employees return the favor.
