Seaboard Foods has created a program for graduating seniors interested in food science, food industry management, meat science, animal science (or related) to get hands on training from senior leadership.

There are three phases in the training program:

After successful completion of the program, associates will be training new hires and current employees on best practices and safety.  
  2. Quality Assurance Technician – Become certified in HACCP, SQF, and/or PQA. Learn about food safety and quality control including critical control points, temperature monitoring, and identifying any food safety risks. Learn about how our chemistry and microbiology labs support our food safety department. This phase would include training for supporting food safety audits performed by USDA as well as GMPs (good manufacturing practices).  
  3. Production Management/ Leadership – Each associate will be paired with a manager to learn how to manage a line, respond to critical situations, and guide/ train employees on product specifications. 

The average salary for this position is approximately $52, 900/ yr. We offer a sign-on bonus and tuition reimbursement. This position would be on B shift which starts at 3:00 pm and lasts anywhere from 9 – 10 hours.
