We are dedicated to offering growth and development opportunities to our talented, hard-working, driven team members! Our Internal Talent Program is designed to help you become a successful leader in our company. This 6-month rotational leadership development program exposes you to all parts of the plant or complex to deepen your understanding of how all departments and teams work together to produce our high-quality products.

An Internship to jumpstart your career

Our world-class summer Internship Program runs from June to August and provides challenging, hands-on work experience in either a production or corporate business department. Interns will have the opportunity to work on meaningful projects that develop individual skills and knowledge base and impact the business in a meaningful way.

Thinking long term? So are we! Successful interns will have the opportunity to interview for the JBS Trainee Program or other positions of interest before the positions are opened to anyone else!

The high visibility and access to Executives provided me with rare insight into macro-level strategies and business rationales few internships across the country offer, certainly not in companies as large. Furthermore, the Internship naturally progresses into the Management Trainee Program, a curriculum I was really attracted to upon graduation.”
-Dolan, 2013 Corporate Intern and 2014 JBS Trainee

Recent or Soon-to-Be Graduate?


The JBS Trainee Program is an 12-month rotational leadership development program for recent graduates who want to pursue their passion and build a career in leadership with the world’s largest protein company. JBS Trainees have the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in multiple areas of a facility providing an in-depth understanding of how the pieces of our business work together to feed the world.

Each customizable rotation includes a project that will allow trainees to utilize and grow their project management, problem solving and collaboration skills.
