Hello, and thank you for your interest in joining our team! We are looking for a happy, motivated and professional person that is interested in reliable and lengthy employment. The Olympia Seafood Company is our beautiful capitol city’s retail seafood market, family owned and operated for 18+ years and located in downtown Olympia.

We are looking for a person that thrives in a service culture, delivering outstanding customer service experiences that are kind, friendly and warm. Also, someone that is able to function well in both a fast-paced, high-energy busy work environment *and* a slower, detail-oriented, self starting space.

  • Full embodiment of Olympia Seafood culture, delivering outstanding customer service in a friendly, warm and welcoming manner.
  • Serving customers in a standard deli-style setting including portioning, weighing product, pricing it appropriately, making custom requested alternations (removing skin, bones), wrapping it for transport, and acting as the cashier - taking the customer through their entire experience in purchasing exceptional seafood.
  • Following good hygiene, health and safety practices at all times and performing cleaning duties as required.
  • Following recipes as directed to produce accurate, tasty food products such as crab cakes, smoked salmon dip, seafood pasta salad and much more.
  • Using measures and scales to ensure accuracy.
  • Ensuring that food items are properly and safely labeled, stored and organized at all times.
  • Maintaining cheerful and amiable relationships with co-workers, vendors and customers. 
  • Performing any other duties that may be required as assigned by supervisors.

Qualities and Abilities include:

  • A love of food and food culture, particularly seafood.
  • Ability to verbally describe cooking techniques and directions.
  • Ability to be on time and prepared, as well as not having an aversion to working both weekend days, and the immediate bookends to all major holidays.

Physical demands:

  • Must be able to walk, stand, bend and lift boxes (and fish!) that can weigh 50 pounds.


We are looking for someone to work in a part-time capacity, with the schedule of Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9:50 to 6:15, less a 30 minute lunch break and Sunday from 10:00 to 4:30.
