About Kerry

A career with Kerry Taste & Nutrition offers you an opportunity to shape how people across the globe view food and beverage while providing you opportunities to explore and grow as your interests do. With our commitment to a sustainable future, a career with Kerry is something you can feel good about.

About the role

Located right near the O'Hare airport, our Elk Grove Village, IL location is the epicenter for all things sprinkle! Here our hardworking team creates many different styles, shapes, and colors of sprinkles and cake crunch for Kerry customers and brands. With a growing portfolio, comes the need to grow our team! If you like working with a close-knit group that makes a big impact, we may be the place for you!

 

Key responsibilities

We are looking for some great people to join our SECOND SHIFT!  As a Warehouse Operator you'll be responsible for securely transporting finished goods and raw materials between the receiving docks, storage areas, production, packaging, warehouse and the shipping docks. You'll get the opportunity to work alongside our truck drivers and make sure our finished goods and raw materials are kept in good order!

You’ll be a key part of a high performing team that keeps production lines running efficiently while working together to ensure we all have a safe workplace. We’ll count on you to help us meet our customer and consumer needs as you:

  • Move and transfer ingredients by hand, cart, or forklift (don’t worry, we’ll train you if not certified)

  • Document temperature and machine readings with accuracy – your attention to detail will be key here

 

Qualifications and skills

  • Are you able to carry 50 lbs, stand for extended periods of time, and work at heights using a scissor-lift? We care about your safety, so you’ll need to pass a pre-work physical as part of a safety check.

  • Do you have experience driving a forklift? The safety of our team and products are our top priority, so we prefer a year of experience behind the wheel.

  • Do you know the value of a great team? Teamwork is one of our values and critical to everyone’s success.

  • Because you’ll be part of a team that will count on you, we’d like to see solid work attendance in your current/previous job.
