I worked for the wharf crew department and let's just say that cookes moto of " we plan your future path" stuff is just if you work in the office. You will notice a big difference of how labours are treated compared to the office workers and so on. Fails to provide all safety courses need to do the job lawfully before work should begin (Confined space, fall arrest, MED, forklift ticket, anyone with first aid) while I was there because of the department size. Be expected to only know when you work one day in advance. Shifts generally start at 12PM-6PM at any given day and can end 11am the next day and you be expected to work 20 plus hours if need with no night shift premiums and expected to still work for 2 pm the next day without any compensation. Entering the hold of the boat daily to shovel the salmon up the fish hose because of inefficient offloading design with fish blood water constantly spraying you in the face as they use it to control the blood level in the hold. Outside constantly with no real lunch area with a chair to sit down and even eat. Something you would think as a benefit would be the ability to have a break whenever you finish offloading a boat for a few hours while getting paid is awesome but is near torture if you actually are a worker and don't have a place to go while there is a break as there are no accommodations at work. Expected to do other jobs like cleaning up the pallet yard unexpectedly or dump tubs of fish up in the factory (if you want to or not). Almost unchangeable toxic atmosphere because of department size and any change "could" affect some - more...

Cooke's is a great company - working here is comfortable and employees are polite and friendly. Typical day is pretty standard in the accounts payable field: there is lots of data entry and processing of invoices as well as incoming and outgoing communication with vendors. The job is not hard if you are effective in time management and personal deadlines. The only drawback is compensation which is minimal.
Pros
Friendly & Comfortable Work Environment
Cons
Compensation

I enjoy working ay Cooke Aqua. They offer a unique job in the saltwater division that offers some a little different each day. However, due to the lack of decent wages, one os required to work hundreds of hours to make up for lack of wage thus affecting the work/ home life balance which is basically zero.
