Production Associate
Job Type

Full benefits - First-shift hours – Pay starts at a minimum of $15.00/hour

We're a different kind of company.  With a different kind of team.   We are looking to hire amazing new members to that Production Team.  

We get it.  It's hard to make a change in career.  So why would you even consider a job here as a Production Associate?  

  • R-E-S-P-E-C-T!  You aren't just a number.  You're a real, live human.  We treat our employee-owners like the professionals they are and with the respect they deserve.  We'll know your name and understand you should be valued as the critical member of the team you are.  Our team, Supervisors, and Managers are supportive, fun, and engaging.  
  • GREAT HOURS! Never Sundays, only a few Saturdays a year. Nights and weekends off.  8 paid holidays off a year. 3-Day weekends from four 10-hour shifts.
  • FULL BENEFITS! Health, 3 weeks PTO the first year, wellness reimbursement, shoe allowance, and lots and lots of free product!
  • GROWTH! Tons of opportunity for advancement (and more pay). Interesting tasks. Lots of chances to learn new machines and new jobs. 

Don’t let never having worked in manufacturing before hold you back from this opportunity!   It's ok if you haven't worked as a Production Associate before.  

Here's what a day looks like as a Production Associate:  

  • You'll make high quality, cost-effective frozen specialty food products. 
  • You’ll work primarily on the braided pastry and cake roll lines but should be willing to assist where needed. 
  • Most importantly, you’ll follow and promote procedures to protect the safety of the humans in the plant and the safety of the food we produce. 

Our ideal Production Associate understands:  

  • Growth means being excited to learn new skills
  • Strong Relationships require kindness and extending grace, even when things get stressful, and 
  • Having Discipline means showing up for your team, even when you’d rather stay in your warm, cozy bed.   

Because you’ve had customer-facing experience, you understand that our customers are everywhere. They’re internal – the people who count on us to work together to make our products – and they’re external – the people who consume our products. For that reason, you know the key to a team working in harmony is to listen. 

And while you want the team to succeed and you’ll always communicate professionally and appropriately at all times, you’re also not a “yes’ person. You’ll use your problem solving skills to help your team develop effective solutions to the puzzles we face together. 

Your impact…

  • Most importantly, you’ll know you’re successful when you and all your team return home safely at the end of the day. 
  • You’ll understand that your work didn’t just help create delicious braided pastries, cakes and cookies. Thanks to our hard work, you Helped Others Help Themselves. Our fundraising partners, with the assistance of our products, were able to send kids to camp, build playgrounds, fund scholarships, and more! 

Still unsure? That’s ok. Just complete the application and come talk informally with us to see what it’s all about.  We want to be your partner as you determine if our team is a good fit for your life.
