Perfect Summer Job To Make MONEY - 2016 Starting Processor pay is $10.00 per hour!

Red Salmon Cannery is hiring seafood processors for the 2016 Salmon Season! The salmon season begins in mid to late June, and can last until the end of July. Because of this, you have the opportunity to work for a short amount of time, and earn a LARGE PAYCHECK. Red Salmon Cannery is a division of North Pacific Seafoods and is located in Naknek, a village in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska. Bristol Bay is known as the “Red Salmon Capital of the World”.

  • Each first-year processor will earn $10.00 per hour, and $15.00 per hour for overtime worked.
  • During the peak of the season, fishing is heavy and our facility operates 24 hours a day. At this point, you will work up to 16 hours a day, 7 days a week, with no days off. That means lots of overtime and lots of money.
  • We are looking for hard-working employees who have the commitment and mindset to push through long, hard days - the return of a LARGE PAYCHECK is worth it.
Red Salmon Cannery provides:
  • FREE room and board to all employees who successfully complete the entire season.
  • Separate male and female quarters are available, housing 2 to 4 people each.
  • Linens and laundry services are also provided at no cost.
  • FREE three meals a day, and break food. There is a salad bar, and we also have an amazing baker who makes his own delicious donuts and cookies.
  • FREE personal protective equipment (PPE), such as boots, raingear and gloves
  • Access to payphones throughout the property because most cell phone carriers do not work in the remote location of Naknek, Alaska. However, Verizon is one carrier that does work.
  • FREE access to desktop computers and WiFi connection with limited connectivity.... It is Alaska after all.
  • Last but not least, Red Salmon Cannery provides roundtrip transportation to the processing facility from your point of hire (either Seattle, WA or Anchorage, AK), as long as you successfully complete your employment agreement. If you quit or get discharged before the season ends, you will be responsible for the cost of your return transportation. You get yourself to Seattle or Anchorage and we will take care of the rest!

Skills and Qualifications
Being a fish processor is not an easy task. Processors must be versatile and willing to perform a variety of tasks including, but not limited to:

  • Gutting, cleaning, packing and icing of seafood, assorted canning jobs
  • Operating various types of machinery
  • General cleaning of work areas.
  • Working conditions vary depending on tasks assigned, which could include noisy areas where machines are operating, wet areas where seafood is cleaned, and cold areas such as walk-in freezers.
  • Much of the work is repetitive due to mechanization and large volumes of product processed.
  • In short, the nature of the work is not glamorous.

  • Opens: 06/15/2016
  • Closes: 07/20/2016
  • Rate of Pay: $10 per regular hour / $15 per overtime hour
  • Hours/Days: Up to 16 hours a day / 7 days a week

Ministry Intern (General or children/youth)

Who We Are: Our community is a beach community where you can dig your toes into the sand and dip them in the surf. We are also a retirement community, fishing community, and a working class community. Many children, according to school statistics, qualify for additional reading support and free food programs. We have families living in trailers - single-wide mobile homes and camping trailers - and others in traditional housing. During the summer, we experience an influx of vacationers due to the many events on the coast including Kite Festival, clamming, salmon season and tuna classic.

Peninsula Church of the Nazarene is an active church of about 60 people who are mostly senior adults located in Long Beach, Washington (southwest corner of the state). The congregation is active and has a heart for the children and the hungry. Sundays include Sunday School, morning worship with blended style music, and an evening service of prayer and praise. The ladies meet weekly and the men twice a month for Bible study. We also meet on Wednesday evenings for a potluck and Bible study. Twice a week, we partner with His Supper Table to provide a free, hot meal for over 200 people. Our two pastors, a husband and wife team, are kept busy.

On Sundays, we regularly pick up, feed, and love nine (or so) elementary through high school youth, most of who attend without parents. We raised funds to send fifteen children/youth to summer camp for two summers now and hosted a three-day vacation Bible school. The youth and children are important enough for our 70 and 80 year olds to wash cars to raise funds - the children and youth help! We hope to involve more children, youth and, ideally, their parents through various outreach possibilities; Good News Clubs may work well here!

Job Description - depends on area of focus and interest... in other words, it is up for negotiation and discussion.

Both Areas of Focus would also:
  • Attend board meetings (once a month)
  • Attend one zone meeting or district event if possible
  • Report to and meet with the pastors at least weekly (prayer, planning, communication, evaluation, study, etc.)
  • Official hours can be part time or full time based on compensation

Skills and Qualifications
Who You Are:

  • Committed, growing Christian

  • Able to pass a background check (mandatory)
