    Pros

    Ocean Beauty has a positive, friendly working environment which often feels more like a big family than a corporation. They actively promote from within so if you find your niche it is possible to advance quite easily.

    Cons

    The corporate structure is rather old fashioned, cumbersome, and overly rigid. This lends it self to knowledge and information silos.

    Advice to Management

    Work to break down knowledge silos to foster cross-departmental communication, problem solving, and innovation. Address the flat/horizontal corporate structure that hinders career advancement for junior employees (there are few mid-level positions).

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ocean Beauty Seafoods in August 2012.

    Interview

    The day I applied, I drug tested, filled out all the paperwork needed and made a trip to the DMV for my report. Once my background came through, I started immediately.

    Interview Questions

    • Why did you let me go after only four days? The door on my truck got stuck, I was told to switch trucks, this set me back and a certain customer complained, I feel and the rest is history.   Answer Question
