is a diverse, privately held organization with roots firmly planted in
agriculture. These endeavors have been around for centuries and will
continue to be a vital part of the global economy. Our Food Operations
plant in Moses Lake, Washington is currently seeking candidates for
the Management Trainee Program.
The J.R. Simplot Company, headquartered in Boise, Idaho, employs roughly

vacancies within the organization.
