Multiple 2nd shift openings! 

What you'll do:

Do you enjoy your days being full of variety? As a Utility Operator you’ll keep our production lines running so we can meet customer and consumer needs. It’s a physically demanding job, so you’ll get a workout in every day as you lift 50+ pound bags for transfer. Additionally, you’ll train to perform all jobs on the assigned line, which could mean performing all tasks of the blender, machine operator, forklift and/or packer, to run the line, machinery, packaging and/or palletizing product to help achieve the highest efficiency and quality of finished goods. And if you’re like us, you will feel a deep sense of pride when you see friends and family eating products with ingredients you helped produce!

 

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:

 

•               Measure, weigh and document ingredients

•               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 detail will be key here

What you'll need to be successful and safe:
  •  Do you have experience working alongside a team and operating machines in a manufacturing environment? The safety of our team and products are our top priority, so we prefer some experience.
  • Thinking of joining a gym? No need! This role will require lifting 50lbs bags of ingredients by hand.
  • 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.
