DESCRIPTION: The Internship Program at AgriNorthwest is designed to evaluate college students as potential employees, while allowing college students the opportunity to gain work experience. Management will focus on recruiting students in their junior or senior year who have a desire and aptitude to work in Production agriculture. Interns will be recruited from various colleges and universities across the country.
Internships will usually last for three to four months, but occasionally may last longer. During this time interns will work on Pest Scouting. In this role you will report to an Area Director and collaborate with several of our Farm Unit Managers as you scout pests and report your findings to management. You will have a unique opportunity to learn from experts in the potato industry and help AgriNorthwest produce high quality, high yielding commodities and produce that will help us to fulfill our financial responsibility to our owner. As you complete your assignments you will have the chance to demonstrate your character and work qualities and, at the same time, we hope to earn your respect and trust. While fulltime positions are not guaranteed, our desire is for you to continually develop yourself to possibly become a future leader at AgReserves.
COMPENSATION AND HOUSING: In this position, the intern will have a starting wage of $10 per hour. In addition to the wage, the intern will receive a rent-free, furnished apartment in the Kennewick area. The furnishings at the apartment include: one queen size bed, microwave, stove, refrigerator, couch, coffee table, and dresser. We also provide all the kitchenware including dishes, silverware, pots, and pans. The Intern will be responsible to bring your own linens, towels, and entertainment equipment (televisions, computers, etc.).
The Intern will be responsible for commuting from Kennewick to the Plymouth/Eureka farm office each day where you will receive a farm truck to help you complete your daily assignments. The farm vehicle is only to be used for business purpose and should not be used for personal needs.
