The open positions at Continental Dairy Products are for milk receivers, evaporator/dryer operators, packaging operators, warehouse operators, quality assurance technicians, maintenance technicians and supervisors. Wages for these positions range from $14.68 to $22.30 per hour, plus benefits. There is also formal training for all applicable positions.

The job fair will take place at 708 O’Malley, just off Interstate 96 in Coopersville, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ottawa County Michigan Works! will assist Continental Dairy Products with organization and staffing the event.

This spring, Continental Dairy Products will begin production of nonfat dry milk, condensed milk and cream for the food manufacturing industry. The new employees will join the existing staff to facilitate full production.

“We have been in the design and construction phase for over two years, and we are looking forward to opening our doors for business in our new facility,” said Kathy Antuma, the company’s personnel manager. “We are eager to find the very best employees to help us achieve our production goals.”

Interested applicants are asked to apply in advance online at www.csfacilitiesllc.com. There will be other required paperwork to fill out at the job fair, including a paper application if individuals have not applied online or do not have convenient access to that service. Applicants are asked to bring an updated resume, job history or references to the job fair to expedite the process.

There will also be an opportunity to visit with Continental Dairy Products staff to ask about the company and about any of the open positions.
