Kraft Foods Tour

Local Employers Who Want to Hire You

Career Employment Services coordinated an exclusive tour of the local Kraft Foods plant in July 2013 for the Missouri Association for Career and Technical Education conference attendees. Members of the division of Missouri Association for Career Services (MACS) and others met to hear Scott Goheen, HR Manager, provide information about the history of the plant along with an overview of the present and future plans for the expanding facility. A plant tour, no longer offered to the general public, gave members special insight into what Kraft Foods has to offer high school and college students interested in technical employment opportunities with the organization. Tour guides DR Hill, Maintenance Manager; Ted Pridgen, Reliability Leader; and Mike Peebles, Maintenance Engineer further discussed the skills and types of individuals sought for particular positions.
