Perry's Ice Cream makes more than nine million gallons of "the good stuff" a year...and you could take home some of it as a perk of working there!

The fourth-generation family business has roots in Western New York and that's where it remains, with thousands of square feet of production space. That family ownership carries over into the environment of the company, with many employees saying they feel like part of the Perry family.

The company wants you to join their family with a number of open job positions. Perry's is hiring hourly production jobs across three shifts and delivery drivers. The average tenure of employees at Perry's is 10.5 years, showing just how much people love the company.

Perry's puts an emphasis on on-the-job training, allowing you to develop your career. In 2018 the company had 41 internal promotions and job awards. Many current employees at Perry's started in different positions than they hold now.

Pay ranges from $14 to $26.50 based on experience and position. You may receive a raise six to 12 months after your start date, following completion of training.

Some of the perks besides working for a local, family-owned company are a full suite of benefits, competitive wages and of course, the ability to take home some ice cream to enjoy! You'll give input on new flavors, offer up naming ideas and get to try all the new Perry's products before they're released!
