PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR-EXPERIENCED CANDIDATES
Hormel Foods has exciting opportunities in Production Management in our operations facilities. Production Supervisors are responsible for the success of a department in one of our manufacturing plants and manage approximately 15-30 employees leading them to achieving safety, productivity and quality goals. This includes scheduling products, coordinating transportation and supplies, verifying daily inventories, enforcing company policies, planning monthly meetings, and motivating employees. Production Managers make all departmental decisions. It is like running your own business within a business.
Approximately six weeks will be spent in a training environment before being promoted to a department. The training program consists of partnering with other managers to learn about our products, the company, and industry dynamics. Seminars at our corporate headquarters in Austin, MN will include presentations by our different divisions to increase product knowledge, company knowledge, and leadership skills. Most Production Supervisors begin their career on the second shift in one of our larger manufacturing facilities in the upper Midwest in our Austin, MN, Fremont, NE, Osceola, IA, or Rochelle, IL plants. Other plant locations include facilities in Wisconsin, Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, and Georgia.
