Job Description:
This person will work in a nutritional products plant about 10 miles outside of Salt Lake City – they will have a team of 8 direct reports and 60+ indirect reports. This facility runs one shift, 5 days a week (6:00a to 2:30pm for the operators) so there is a good work/life balance. The reason this position is open is because they are changing how they do things at the facility and the person who is in this role now will be moved to a different role. There are a lot of projects planned for this site over the next couple of years including the introduction of a controls system to the plant (PLC). This person will be the 2nd in command to the plant manager and will be groomed to move into the plant manager role in the future. The site consists about 120 total employees – the parent company operates about a dozen manufacturing facilities in North America (IL, LA, TN, NJ, SC, Canada, Mexico). This company would prefer local candidates or candidates who are renting. There is a 10% bonus target associated with this role, minimal travel involved.
