Sargento – Why Work With Us?

Come join the Sargento Family!

At Sargento, you work for a company you believe in, with a family of people who believe in you.  Connect your passion to our culture. 

A Foundation of Trust, Honesty and Fairness.

When Leonard Gentine Sr. founded Sargento in 1953, he also laid the foundation for a corporate culture that defines how we interact with others. Leonard taught his employees and his children that success was contingent upon working with good people and treating them the way you would like to be treated – with trust, honesty and fairness.

We have invested considerable time in defining our culture, and we ask every employee to help us maintain and enhance the Sargento spirit. This is how we will continue Leonard’s legacy and become an even greater company without losing sight of the principles and values that guided Leonard and should guide our actions every day.

Competitive Pay and Benefits

Grounded in our corporate culture, Sargento provides a compensation and benefit package on par or better than those found in other organizations. As a privately-held and owned company, we are free to appeal to the interests of our employees and not to the whims of stockholders found in publicly-traded companies.
