Job Description:

Our international food ingredients processing client is currently looking for 2 supervisors who would report to the lead production supervisor. Currently looking for one night supervisor and one night floating supervisor. They both have the same responsibilities, but slightly different hours. (see below)

The night supervisor is on a rotating shift 5p-5a, 3 on, 2 off, 2 on, 3 off. This includes weekends and holidays when they fall on the rotation.

The floating night supervisor has a little bit different hours and is used to cover for absences of other supervisors. When this position is not covering for anyone, the hours are Sunday through Thursday 5p-1a, and 5p-5a when covering.

These positions provide leadership to the packaging leads and packaging operators. They need to have a good rapport with their peers, but with boundaries and still be able to hold their direct reports accountable.
There are 30 operators in these areas, the night supervisor supervises 8 operators, the floating supervisor would be managing all of them at some point but not all at once.
MAY look at "entry level candidates with a BS degree" IF they have some supervisory / leadership experience in a manufacturing setting.  Really want a couple years of direct supervisory experience in food processing, packaging or related.  Minimum of an associates degree or "extensive" supervisory experience in a similar environment

You will need to be able to juggle of things so skills like time management, team leadership, and taking initiative are ideal. You would need to learn the entire packaging and production department similar to the superintendent but with less responsibility. Less supervisory experience is ok, but with the desire to grow in leadership skills and willing to learn. Prior experience working within a 365/24/7 operation is helpful.

You must be legally authorized to work in the USA without the need for sponsorship now or in the future.
