Interested job applicants will need to plan and execute over 200 events annually while they promote Planters, the NUTmobile, and the company’s mascot, Mr. Peanut.
Job responsibilities will also include securing local media, creating a positive brand experience for consumers, documenting creative content for the company’s social media channels, and generating positive brand awareness for Hormel Foods.
The job description also entails speaking to large groups and interacting with visitors in costume. Peanutters will also serve as company ambassadors and engage in over 160,000 one-on-one consumer interactions annually to ensure consumers have a “nutty time,” in addition to other assigned duties.
The position begins June 22 and will run five days a week for 40 hours with some variations, which requires flexibility in work hours, Hormel said in its job post. Travel is a 100% requirement of the job.
Job candidate requirements include a degree major in sales and marketing with preferred experience in communications, advertising, public relations or a related field. A past internship is also a preference for getting hired.
Qualified candidates must also have a valid driver’s license, excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to work weekends, weekdays, nights and holidays as necessary.
Hormel offers a range of benefits to the lucky Peanutter it hires, including competitive base salary, plus bonus, annual merit increase based on performance reviews, health benefits, pension, profit-sharing, 401(k) and stock purchase plan.
To apply for the position, job candidates must submit their resume and a 30- to 45-second video that describes why they would make the perfect Peanutter at Planters. This is where creativity counts, Hormel Foods said.
After the one-year position, Peanutters are eligible to apply for a full-time position within the Hormel Foods sales organization, the company said.
As of Friday at 10:30 a.m. EST, shares of Hormel Foods were trading at $49.78, up 45 cents, or 0.91%.
