Hiring Process

Getting Hired

Our culture is sustained and brought to life every day by the people of Smucker. This is why our management approach starts with the important objective of hiring individuals into the organization who share our values as well as a passion for our brands and serving our constituents. A thoughtful employee hiring process supports this objective. Candidates often complete multiple on-site visits to meet with many Smucker employees, providing both the Company and the candidate with the opportunity to get to know one another.

We hire people for a long-term career, and during the interview process we consider both an employee’s ability to fulfill a current role, and his or her potential for future growth. The effectiveness of this long-term approach is reflected in an employee turnover rate that is well below industry average and an employee productivity rate, as measured by sales and profit per employee, that is consistently above industry average.

The thoroughness of our hiring process enables us to begin building relationships with employees when they are candidates.
