MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc. has been in business since 1929. We could not have been so successful over the years without our dedicated employees! What kinds of skills, education, and background are beneficial in working for our company? How are new employees hired? The following information will provide the insight needed to understand our hiring process.
Some of the most important qualities that prospective employees must possess are strong work ethics and reliability. We are always looking for hard-working individuals to join our team. Working with live animals is a big responsibility, and our staff needs to be dedicated to caring for our birds correctly. Each staff member is crucial to the success of our company.
People who are interested in working for MacFarlane Pheasants should be motivated to learn and improve. There are several entry-level positions. In fact, many of our employees started with little or no experience working with pheasants. Through hard work and proven dedication, they became supervisors or crew leaders.
While having a certain college degree is not a requirement for working with us, some of our employees do have degrees that have prepared them for their positions. Agriculture Business degrees help to understand the financing, marketing, and management of food production. Some of our employees have Wildlife Management degrees, which provide deeper understanding of how to manage wildlife populations and their habitats.
Many of our employees begin with temporary agencies. This allows them to get a feel for what it is like to work at MacFarlane Pheasants and to gain experience working with our birds. Once they are comfortable with the working environment and expectations, and we know they are hard workers, these temporary employees may apply for permanent positions.
When applying for an available position, a prospective employee will be interviewed by the supervisor of that position. If that interview goes well, there may be another interview conducted by one of our managers: Chris Theisen, Brad Lillie, or Brian Klein. The supervisor and manager will then confer to make a final decision regarding hiring.
We are proud to have many staff members who have worked for our company for several years. At times, it can be difficult to find people who are willing to work outdoors year-round, but these are certainly valuable and essential positions. We do offer great benefits and competitive wages to our employees, and we are committed to employee satisfaction.
