CHOCTAW COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – A job fair held at the Choctaw County Community Center in Ackerman will mean about a dozen jobs for families.
Prestage Farm Representatives took applications and interviewed potential workers to fill positions at their swine farms in Choctaw County Thursday (12/6).
Before noon time well over 100 people had taken part in the one day job fair.
With steady employment, Prestage is offering medical, dental, and life insurance.
There is also paid vacation and a 401k plan.
“We’re looking for some people if they have any past experience dealing with livestock. Whether it be cattle, horses, or whatever, we find that the people that have some experience around them that are not afraid of them work best in our organization,” said Jim Murray, Prestage Farms.
Prestage Farms came to the area in the early nineties and now only raise feeder pigs.
