Hershey Company’s Manufactuing Boot Camp offers a
SHORTCUT TO A SWEET CAREER!

If you’re a high school grad or have a GED, and are interested in exploring a career in manufacturing, this is for YOU.

WHAT IS MANUFACTURING BOOT CAMP?

You get PAID to participate in Hershey’s two-week program geared for individuals who want to learn more about working in a food manufacturing operation.  One week is classroom training on manufacturing, safety, and regulatory requirements in a food manufacturing operation, what does it mean to be a registered apprentice, as well as ‘soft’ skills like teamwork, problem solving, and managing your personal finances.  Participants will receive an intensive orientation from Hershey employees on their working environment, expectations, and tips on how to achieve career success. In the second week, students will work on the job, coached by Hershey trainers and supervisors.  The Boot Camp experience will reveal if this is the career for you and a short cut opportunity to achieve employment and become a Hershey Industrial Manufacturing Technician.

WHEN IS THE 2019 BOOT CAMP?

The first week will be held June 3-7 at Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center in Fishersville. The second week will be conducted by Hershey trainers at the Hershey plant in Stuarts Draft from June 10-13.

WHAT IS THE PAY & HOW DO I APPLY? 

Individuals are selected for the Boot Camp after completing an Application Process.  Boot Camp participants will be paid $11.95 per hour to attend.  Successful completers of the program will be invited to continue working at $11.95 through System One staffing firm.  Your successful performance and attendance will soon lead to consideration for a direct position at Hershey that starts at just over $19 per hour!  To begin the selection process, fill out the contact form or  TEXT “Apply for Boot Camp” (540.435.7679).
