Machine Operator Assistant

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.

Our Production department packages spices and seasonings into jars and bags for distribution to our stores and mail order customers. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn!  

A Machine Operator Assistant will provide support to the Machine Operator in delivering, according to Good Manufacturing Practices, finished quality products. 

Some of the day to day tasks include….

  • Loading production lines with containers and product

  • Packing finished product units into cases and palletizing those cases

  • Monitoring finished product units to ensure consistency with Penzeys quality standards and performing rework to correct products that which fall short of Penzeys standards

  • Other Duties such as cleaning the machine/packaging area

 If you…

  • Commit to supporting a safe workplace for everyone.

  • Understand how kindness, compassion, caring, consistency, communication are important in our daily interactions with everyone.

  • Work to embrace an inclusive, supportive environment.

  • Understand the roles of other leaders, communication in the building and will work to have a common understanding of success.

  • Embrace the importance of support staff in our success, and work to create a successful environment in each department.

  • Understand the importance of employee confidentiality, privacy and professional appropriateness, both at work and away from work.

Then this may be the position for you or someone you know and we'd love to hear from you!
