Facilities Technician--2nd Shift

The job you want.

At Penzeys our customers are cooks and the main thing to know about cooks is that they care. In this time of Coronavirus we model our workplace on the way cooks live: caring enough to wear masks, to keep safe social distances, and to look out for one another. 

In these uncertain times there’s much to be said for an industry that’s thrived throughout times both good and bad. The spice trade’s been going strong 10,000 plus years, and with the growth in demand we’ve seen these past few months, we don’t see that ending anytime soon.
