Our culture is sustained and brought to life every day by the people of Smucker. To ensure the right fit for everyone, candidates often complete multiple interviews and engage with many Smucker employees throughout the hiring process.

The Selection Process

We hope to hire people for a long-term career, and consider both an employee’s ability to fulfill a current role, and his or her potential for future growth. The effectiveness of this hiring approach is reflected in an employee turnover rate that is well below industry average.
