We believe that learning and development happens in many ways – on the job, through training programs and through personal growth and development.


We believe in the power of teams. And we expect our people to be just as flexible and adaptable to change as the business processes we use. So, you may work on teams outside of your area of expertise, to bring a fresh perspective to the business and expand your experiences. Skills you have in one area may help us create solutions in another part of our business and open new opportunities for career growth. Your potential is limited only by your willingness.

Our role is to enable our people. We’ll give you the information and tools you need to succeed and then the freedom to apply them on the job. 

Peacock partners with Alchemy Learning Management System to provide training that’s customized to each type of role and tailored to our specific needs. 

Our programs encompass food safety, workplace safety, operational excellence and leadership development.


Your growth affects Peacock’s ability to grow. So, we invest in the personal development of our employees through on-site educational sessions on finances, retirement planning and college planning, along with a whole host of lunch-and-learn sessions on topics of interest.

In addition, we offer tuition reimbursement for approved undergraduate and graduate-level college courses. 

We also offer English as a Second Language classes at many of our facilities.


Our reward and recognition programs focus on team achievements and individual accomplishments that reinforce our values and help our business grow.


Each year one location is selected for this prestigious honor based on outstanding achievement, including meeting key performance and other metrics. Every employee receives a monetary award. In 2014, our Carol Stream, IL, facility won the award for their safety record.

Employees can nominate a colleague for an action that brings our values to life. Recipients receive a certificate and premium parking for a period of time. They also have the opportunity to win additional prizes.

We thank our employees for their service to the company on their first anniversary and then in five-year increments. Recipients receive a gift of their choice from a wide selection of options.

How we build our teams and work together is as important to us as the strong relationships we have with our customers.

We work hard, but we also take the time to get to know each other and have some fun. Because we know that leads to better business results and a better work environment.

The Morale Committees in our locations plan events and activities throughout the year to build team spirit and connect our employees. We celebrate our Peacock Dads and Moms on their special days. We dress up in our scariest for Halloween. We come together over food at ice cream socials and appreciation luncheons. And we take time out to celebrate our work successes and to say thanks for a job well done.



We are constantly looking for motivated, talented individuals to join our team. We offer opportunities in various career areas. Engineering, Production and Quality Assurance are a few examples, along with support functions, such as Accounting, Information Technology, Human Resources and others.

Joining Peacock means continual opportunities to challenge yourself while developing innovative solutions that drive our business and our customers’ growth.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and follow all local, state and federal employment laws.
