Shift & Compensation
As Operators your work is key to ensuring continuous operations by meeting production needs by the following ways:
As a Production Operator you’ll see a product’s transformation from individual ingredients to finished product. You will Mark and label containers or products using appropriate equipment. You will Measure, weigh, and count and package products and materials. You’ll also Examine and inspect containers, materials, and products to ensure proper specifications are followed. After the ingredients are mixed, polished and sensory tested the finished product is boxed, labeled and palletized. We hope you’ll feel a deep sense of pride when you see friends and family enjoying products you helped produce!
As a Mixer Operator you’ll see a product’s transformation from individual ingredients to finished product. You’ll follow instructions provided on a recipe card or “batch ticket” listing which ingredients you’ll gather, measure, weigh, and document the amount needed. If you’re active, this is the role for you because you’ll use your hustle for lifting, rolling and transporting bags of up to 50lbs of ingredients and drums up to 200lbs to other team members. After the ingredients are mixed, polished and sensory tested the finished product is boxed, labeled and palletized. Because you’ll be working with ingredients to specific standards, you’ll want to have either a high school diploma or equivalent or previous work experience with measuring and documenting with detail.
