Employee Experience

Our employees tell us they appreciate that Lakeside Foods is small enough that they can regularly interact with company leaders across the organization while being large enough to offer a range of career development opportunities. They also see the benefits of working for a locally owned, privately held company where fourth-generation family members continue to lead the company. But don’t take our word for it. Hear what our employees themselves have to say…


“I enjoy working with our employee teams to find answers and fix problems in our manufacturing operations. While making food products might seem simple, there’s a lot that goes into commercial manufacturing, and I love doing something different every day on the job.” ~ DJ


“I joined Lakeside Foods right out of college, in an entry-level management position. Throughout the years, Lakeside has provided me with opportunities for career advancement and assisted me in pursuing my master’s degree. I’m now the Director of Human Resources and would strongly encourage anyone looking for a great career, with many wonderful people, to come join us!” ~ Dave





“As a production floor lead, I enjoy teaching and helping my
team members, especially new employees who only speak
Spanish. I appreciate the Lakeside has given me opportunities
to learn and grow.”
