The Pepperidge Farm brand owner has opened applications for 100 positions at its Willard site, affectionately dubbed the ‘Goldfish capital’, producing 50 million of the iconic cheddar-flavoured crackers daily.

The bakery in southwestern Huron County, Ohio, currently employs around 700 people, but is gearing up for a new cohort of “passionate individuals who have a desire to work for one of the most incredible snacking companies in the world,”​ the company said in a release.

Campbell Snacks is one of the two powerhouse divisions making up Campbell Soup, which has roots dating back to 1869. As a purpose-driven company, the unit plays an integral role in society – from the snacks it makes to its commitment to the communities it operates within and to the environment. It is also wholly focused on building a winning team and culture, prioritising inclusion and diversity, with a $1.5m commitment over three years to  fight racism and discrimination.

With passion and intensity

Campbell Snacks Goldfish

“Our bakery in Willard has been making Goldfish and other delicious Pepperidge Farm products for the past 45 years.

“Whether making our iconic cheddar Goldfish, exquisite Milano cookies or an exciting innovation like Jalapeno Mega Bites Goldfish, our Willard employees work with passion and intensity to create snacks that satisfy everyday cravings and offer elevated experiences.”

Campbell Snacks is looking to fill both full time and temp hourly roles for its product and packaging lines at Willard. A full time wage ranges between $21.50/hour to $31.50/hour, while temp positions start at $16.00/hour.

Full time employees have access to benefits from day one of employment, including comprehensive training, a tuition assistance programme and a 401(k) plan.

Campbell Snacks is one of the world’s leading snack producers, with brands such as Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels, Goldfish crackers, Late July tortilla chips, Kettle Brand potato chips, Cape Cod potato chips, Pepperidge Farm cookies and bread and Lance cracker sandwiches, among others, that brought in $8.6bn in net sales in fiscal 2022. The company boasts a 14,100-strong workforce at its sites across North America.
