I Am The Story: Jake Wiener
Bean Plant Superintendent
What is your role at Didion?
My role at Didion is to safely and intelligently lead and motivate my team to help build successful employees of the future. I want to do everything I can to teach, improve and connect with my team to help them strive in always wanting more.
How does your role help the organization and the community?
My role helps the organization by ensuring we meet the bottom line through our core values. With mutual trust, we understand what we need to get accomplished and how we are going to do it. My role helps the community by making sure we practice safe work habits, ultimately keeping the local community safe and the communities who consume our product safe.
What do you find the most rewarding about working at Didion?
What I find most rewarding about working at Didion is the pride and camaraderie I share with my team. It is refreshing to work with people who want to make a difference and grow together as a company.
Are there any career highlights or industry skills that have contributed to your career path?
In the short time that I have worked for Didion (a month and a half), the team has made tremendous effort to get into a position where we are able to maintain what we have while meeting the increased needs of our Markesan Facility. Without their dedication, ideas and hard work we would not have been able to make this happen.
What advice would you give a job seeker who’s thinking about applying for a job with us?
As long as the job itself fits what you are looking for (referring to hours, actual job, benefits, etc.) you would be crazy not to apply here.
