Working at J.S. Ferraro gives me the opportunity to be a part of an industry-leading organization that looks to push the limits on innovation. The team works together to push towards a shared goal: to continue innovating and remaining ahead of the herd when it comes to our service offerings.
Working in a small business like J.S. Ferraro will allow you to be involved and challenge yourself in a variety of assignments. Your opinion is ‘heard’ much louder here than in big corporations, so I would advise you to not be afraid to stand up and make your own suggestions based on your previous experience, knowledge or creativity.
I’m proud to be part of a 30-year legacy that’s known for its expertise and credibility within the market. Not only have I helped build this legacy, I’m now part of the innovative vision that we’re striving towards for decades to come.
What I enjoy most about working at J.S. Ferraro is the people! We work hard but have a good time together.
At JSF everyone is highly valued, and our work has a direct impact on our success. The environment makes our work much more rewarding and contrasts with big corporate jobs where you feel like a cog or seem to be stuck doing the same thing every day. At JSF, your work is recognized immediately and is reflected in our success.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
When we asked our employees this question, the answer was unanimous: the people make JSF a great place to come to every day. The company has a deep sense of community and mutual respect.

Ferraro a place where you feel good about what you do every day. But there’s nothing stuffy or old school about the atmosphere here. It’s fun! We’re a diverse team of smart, driven people who share wonderful sense of camaraderie focused around our passion for food – it’s dynamic, energetic, and (we guarantee) NEVER boring.

Although having a background in the meat and livestock industry is an asset, it isn’t a deal-breaker. We’re looking for innovative thinkers with a willingness to learn!
From the first day on the job, you’re assigned meaningful projects that make a direct contribution to the company’s goals – and are a tremendous hands-on learning opportunity. And our decentralized structure means you can regularly communicate with people at all levels. Everyone here is welcoming and willing to help; it’s up to you to come with the right attitude and the desire to learn.
Plus, for new grads, J.S. Ferraro is the perfect place to grow. Since we are a relatively small operation, our team members get significant responsibility and accountability within their positions. If you show initiative and a willingness to learn, there’s plenty of room to advance into leadership roles.
J.S. Ferraro is a customer-focused business in an industry that revolves around the freshness and availability of raw product. Just as our customers rely on our immediate service and just-in-time delivery, we rely on our team to respond accordingly. It moves quickly and is very competitive, so we’re looking for people who are energized by the dynamic nature of the business. You’ll work hard, but you’ll also be 100% supported by your team and your leaders. You’ll be trained on an ongoing basis through our bi-monthly speaker series, and monthly off-sites will help you get to know your team better.
