Job Description

Full-Time Production Associate (w/ Excellent Benefits!)

This is where the magic happens.

At Dierbergs, our gourmet prepared foods are customer favorites and our Central Kitchen is where it all begins. At our fast-paced Central Kitchen our Associates take pride in knowing they are preparing high-quality foods that are distributed to our stores-ultimately delighting our loyal customers throughout the region.

Are you all about all things food? Dips, appetizers, recipes, prepared foods…you love it all. Do you wish you had a 50,000 square-foot kitchen with state-of-the-art equipment? Can you handle the challenge of maintaining Dierbergs' quality standards? If so, you're a top pick for the role of Full-Time Production Associate at our Central Kitchen in Bridgeton, Missouri. We're looking for someone who is:

  • An excellent multitasker with a genuine desire to produce food products of impeccable quality
  • Motivated to learn through ongoing training and development
  • Focused and thorough in following food safety guidelines, recipes and production goals
  • Adaptable to work in all areas of the Central Kitchen in varying controlled temperature zones from 38 to 90+ degrees
  • Flexible to work overtime during peak production times
  • Reliable and responsible, you arrive on time, every time, ready to seize the day

What's in it for you?

  • Full-Time, 36-40 hours a week
  • Benefits - Medical, Dental, Vision & more!
  • Weekly paychecks - yes, we are going to pay you every single week!
  • Automatic, scheduled pay increases to reward your awesome performance
  • No overnight shifts required (Most shifts end by 10pm)
  • Training and growth potential to help you reach your career goals
  • Wellness initiatives and Associate appreciation to keep you engaged and involved

What you need to succeed

  • High school diploma or GED
  • Open availability
  • Ability to lift up to 50 pounds (occasionally), utilize push/pull cart of up to 260lbs, and physical agility required in a fast-paced food production environment
  • Ambition and a willingness to learn all aspects of our production environment
  • Ability to operate food service equipment such as wrappers, labelers, scales, slicers, ovens, mixers, etc. (training provided)
  • The ability to read and interpret production papers and accurately measure ingredients
  • This is an entry-level role and we are willing to train; restaurant, production or general labor experience will serve you well
  • Knowledge of food safety and sanitation standards is a plus
  • Flexibility to take on tasks as needed

Why Dierbergs is different

  • Our 50,000 square-foot facility produces hundreds of prepared food items
  • The ideal environment for someone who enjoys variety and appreciates a close-knit, team-focused environment.
  • Opportunities are available in Recipe Preparation, Cooking, Packaging, Sanitation or Shipping/Receiving and you may be cross-trained in other departments.
  • As you learn and grow, you will have the support to move into higher-level roles.
  • Unlike certain food-industry or production facility jobs that require an insane schedule, most shifts end by 10pm at our Central Kitchen; there are no overnight shifts; you'll be off most holidays; and we're closed on Sundays!
