A committed innovator
Bil Johnson, Controls Engineer
“We love innovative, outside-the-box thinking,” Bil says. When he joined Idaho Milk Products in our first year as a company, he wore many hats to keep the plant running—from running electrical instrumentation to database administration. Now eight years later, he mentors a team of talented employees whose engineering insight powers the many dimensions of our world-class processing facility. “At IMP, leaders care about individuals and actively cultivate their careers.” It’s a workplace where both people and ideas grow. Chances are, he and his team are solving a problem together right now.Career Search
Pursuing excellence in food processing
Sam Macias, Laboratory Supervisor
Always find a way to improve: that’s the key. In Sam’s supervisory role in our quality assurance laboratory, he needs technical insight that sets him—and our company—apart in the second-biggest food-processing city in the country. So our CEO helped establish the Food Technology program at the local community college to create an opportunity for employees like Sam to develop the cutting-edge skills and knowledge that differentiate leaders in this competitive industry. “As soon as the Food Technology program opens,” Sam says, “I’ll be in the classroom to take advantage of this amazing chance to grow.”Career Search
The rewards of hard work
Mike Audet, Production Supervisor
In the four years since Mike joined the company, he’s been promoted four times and had five titles—moving from an entry-level packaging position to overseeing all of operations for his night shift crew. “My hard work was rewarded with customized trainings led by outside instructors, brought here specifically to help advance my career,” he says. Today, his crew does everything from unloading raw milk trucks, to running evaporators, to packaging the final product. “Idaho Milk Products provided me so much more than a job: a career that I’m passionate about excelling in.”Career Search
Investing in education
Tandra Benavides, Payroll Specialist
When Tandra joined us, she was working on a B.S. in accounting at Boise State University—so she was excited to learn about our tuition reimbursement program. “Employees can receive up to 50% reimbursement for their education—an amazing benefit,” she says. Completing her degree while working at IMP allowed her to grow her payroll responsibilities to include compliance, financial reporting, tax accounting, and more. “It’s so rewarding to work for a company that invests in me because it means they believe their success is tied to my success.”Career Search
