Are you looking to be a part of a fun, hardworking, sustainable company? Then look no further! Bangs Island Mussels is the place for you. We are in need of a dependable individual to work in our land-based mussel inspection room.

No experience necessary! We will train you.

We offer full health insurance coverage for part-time and full-time employees, PTO, and 5 paid holidays after 3 months!!!


Mussel inspection, washing, bagging, weighing, cleaning up, and other miscellaneous land-based tasks.

We harvest mussels from our farm 3-4 times per week. In the afternoons, the processing crew unloads the mussels from the boat and performs the final processing and inspection of the mussels before they are delivered to the customers. This is essentially a mussel assembly line. The work is fast-paced in a moist and somewhat loud environment (we wear ear protection and listen to great music!)

This is a year-round position.

Hours: 2pm - 10pm (the end time varies according to the harvest amount) Monday-Thursday.

  • A positive attitude
  • Ability to work as a team (a crew of 6 -7)

There are occasional opportunities for extra land-based work.


Free mussels on a regular basis, a cool and exciting work environment on a commercial wharf in the middle of the old port, the possibility of some work on the water if you have the skills. Opportunity to grow within the company!
