Current Openings

Production – West Bend, IA

Production Associate

Full benefits – First-shift hours – Pay starts at a minimum of $15.00/hour

We are looking to hire amazing new members to our Production Team.

Do you find yourself thinking, “That sounds interesting, but I’ve never worked Manufacturing before”? That’s ok! Some of our most successful operators hadn’t, either. They’ve come from service careers and brought reliability, curiosity, and enthusiasm. Those things are what it takes to be successful, not necessarily a production background. Don’t let never having worked in manufacturing before hold you back from this opportunity!

As a Production Associate, you’ll perform duties with the primary goal of ensuring we make high quality, cost-effective frozen specialty food products. You’ll work primarily on the braided pastry and cake roll lines but should be willing to assist where needed. Most importantly, you’ll follow and promote procedures to protect the safety of the humans in the plant and the safety of the food we produce.

Shipping & Receiving – West Bend, IA

Warehouse Associate

Are you a person who can’t imagine sitting at a desk all day, boxed in by four walls? Do you need variety? Do you need to be able to move around? Do you need challenge? Do you thrive in an environment where people will actually stop and speak to you instead of looking the other way as you pass by? Do you look at an empty semi and get excited to play a real-life game of Tetris as you load it?

If that’s you, you could be the person our team needs! While you’ll operate within the overall structure, you’ll have freedom to make decisions on how to best get the work done efficiently and effectively. We’ll trust you to use your prior warehouse and forklift experience to make those decisions, but the team will be there to support you if you ask for help.

Quality Assurance – West Bend, IA

Quality Assurance Technician

Our Quality Assurance Team ensures our products are the absolute best they can be. As a QA Tech, your job will be to safeguard that once a customer trusts us enough to purchase our products and feed them to their families, those products are going to be safe to eat, wholesome, and delicious.

Nobody wants to serve a pastry with some weird, unknown piece of plastic in it. You don’t want to be the one to pull a (Ugh! Gross!) hair out of your cookie. And you definitely don’t want to serve a freakishly ugly Franken-cake to your family and friends. You and your team will make sure our customers never have to worry about any of that.

Maintenance – West Bend, IA

Lead Maintenance Technician

Do you see solutions instead of problems? A servant leader does whatever it takes for the people around him or her to be successful. They’ll strive to provide training and tools to their team, and they’ll be excited to see their people learn and grow.

You might not have thought about it that way, though. For you, it’s just what you do and who you are. You just want to do whatever you can to help others do well because it’s in your DNA. And that makes you a great leader. You may have had formal leadership experience in the past, or you may not have. Either way, you’re ready to lead our team of three to four Maintenance Techs as they troubleshoot equipment issues in our 26,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art food manufacturing facility.

Maintenance – West Bend, IA

Maintenance Technician

Congratulations! You’ve graduated technical school or you’ve achieved an equivalent amount of experience, and you’re ready to join a team who will not only value the hard-earned experience you have so far, but who’ll encourage you to grow more while you make a great hourly wage. And our team can help you do that and even more.

We’ll help you use that electrical and mechanical experience you gained through your education or on-the-job experience and put it to even greater value in our plant. You’ll be an integral part of our team, performing preventative and on-demand maintenance within our 26,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art food manufacturing facility.

Additionally, it is expected that P II will proactively foster a positive work environment and demonstrate flexibility in work assignments and schedule while learning and contributing to the company’s success.
