Management Trainee - Food/Moses Lake, WA


Tracking Code


Job Description

The J.R. Simplot Company 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. 

Company Overview:
The J.R. Simplot Company, headquartered in Boise, Idaho, employs roughly 10,000 employees in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe, and Asia. We are the leader in the potato processing industry with our innovative concepts and work closely with key customers such as McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Pillsbury/Green Giant, and Chili's.  With 25% of the U.S. market share, Simplot supplies virtually every quick-service chain with some or all of their French fries!

Trainee Program Overview:
This program is designed to educate participants on the business methods and manufacturing processes within our Food Division and prepare you to take on a management role with Simplot.  As a Management Trainee, you will learn about food processing, not by reading about it, but by participating in the actual processes.  You will receive periodic evaluations to monitor progress to ensure your understanding of the projects you participate in.  Trainees that excel in the program will be considered for future vacancies within the organization.

Simplot's potato plants are located in Caldwell (ID), Nampa (ID), and Aberdeen (ID), Moses Lake (WA), Othello (WA), Grand Forks (ND), and Portage La Prairie, Manitoba (Canada).

What's in it for you?
Alongside a Simplot mentor, you will spend 12-16 weeks learning through hands-on and classroom experiences.  You will not be in an office all day, rather you will be out in the operations partnering with and learning from the most knowledgeable people in food processing.  This experience allows you to develop valuable job skills and leave the program with a strong sense of what your future can look like!

- Bachelor's degree (in Food Science or Business preferred) or a recent graduate.
- Experience in operations, engineering, food science, or related areas.
- Other helpful qualifications (but not required) are a familiarity with the Spanish language, agriculture experience, or a work history in a related field.

Next Steps:
Please prepare a cover letter and resume that outlines your interest and qualifications and submit through Simplot's online application process. This process includes additional job relevant questions, so please plan on at least 15 minutes when you apply.
