Careers Main Image

Building a brighter future

We’ve been a growth company from the start, and today, our focus hasn’t changed. Every day, we’re continually striving to be one of the best food and agricultural companies of our era. With three diversi­fied businesses that touch nearly every aspect of the food production cycle, we’re in a unique position that allows us to grow strategically.

And we’re not just looking to grow here at home. We’re committed to providing commercially viable, economically sustainable food and agricultural systems in our communities and throughout the world. To continue to make this happen, we know we need the right people.


A history of responsible, sustainable business

As a cooperative, we have rural roots. Land O’Lakes was formed by farmers and for farmers. These hardworking men and women were committed to responsible, sustainable stewardship of the land. Today, we’re proud to carry on this tradition.

What this means is we’re proud to be leaders in improving agricultural sustainability. In fact, some of our member-owners are often early adopters of innovative practices to power their businesses, grow their crops and raise their animals.

We also think responsibility means reaching out into our communities and across the world. Helping others is just what we do as a company–and as people. The Land O’Lakes Foundation proactively helps rural communities by donating resources that develop and strengthen organizations dedicated to hunger relief, education and community. And our International Development Division embodies our commitment to global food security and sustainable agriculture.


Help us make a difference

Land O’Lakes is a place where people are expected to, and get to, make a difference every day. Our employees have a chance to make a real impact. And while we play a leading role in the farm-to-market process, our career opportunities go far beyond the traditional agribusiness professions., including with our local member cooperatives.

For us, best talent isn’t a nice to have, it is a must have. So we continually invest in our employees. Competitive wages, best-in-class benefits packages, and a variety of value-added programs help employees live healthy lives and grow their careers. We value people with a wide range of talents, experiences and perspectives--and we actively support and celebrate this diversity in our workplace.

We’re always looking for talented, passionate people to join our team.



You’re going places–we’ll help you find your way

We recruit at some of the top colleges and universities throughout the United States to bring the best talent into our company. With an emphasis on teams, collaboration and innovative ideas, at Land O’Lakes people are expected to, and get to, make a difference every day.

Whether you’re interested in an internship or full-time position, we’re interested in you.

The intern experience

Our interns aren’t making copies or pushing papers. They’re living the job, learnings the ins and outs of our business. And while we’re proud of our roots, our internship opportunities go far beyond traditional agribusiness professions.

Every intern gets their own project and the opportunity to have a real impact on our business. Along the way, there will be a lot of chances to network, meet our leaders and start building your career.

We begin posting internships at the beginning of September, with most positions filled by the first part of January. However, continue to check campus.landolakes.jobs, as new internships come available throughout the school year.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Land O'Lakes (Carlisle, PA).


    Lengthy but thorough, to include a 1-day long behavioral/psychological screening. There were 2 phone screens before the face to face interview. Then the background check took several weeks. There was a lengthy wait for the background check results.
