We began as a family business in 1882 and have continued to grow into the world's leading innovative developer and producer of sustainable organic ingredients for a growing population. Check out our story!

Headquartered in Irving, TX with regional offices in Cold Spring, KY and Des Moines, IA as well as production facilities across the U.S., we have over 10,000 employees across the globe. We repurpose and reuse rather than discarding what others might consider waste. We capture valuable ingredients and nutrients to help maximize what nature has to offer, providing components for a wide range of products that include pet food, fertilizer, and biofuel. Giving nature a second life is our second nature.

Our greatest assets are our employees. Our inclusive global workforce and their wide variety of skills, abilities, experiences, and perspectives have been critical in helping us consistently deliver best-in-class results around the world. In order to attract and retain employees who share our values of integrity, transparency, and entrepreneurship, we offer competitive pay, excellent benefits, stability, and opportunities for career growth.


As a Utility Worker / General Laborer, you provide critical help in keeping our operation running smoothly by helping to keep raw materials and finished products moving within the plant as well as keeping things clean and sanitary. You perform a variety of general labor tasks.

Using a high-pressure hose, you wash the parking lot, plant equipment, and the surrounding areas of our manufacturing plant. You also paint and wash plant equipment and building fixtures as needed. Always attentive to safety, you drive a company vehicle to get around the plant and property.

As you load and unload trailers at the dock, you accurately report on the condition of the raw materials and the interior of the trucks. As someone who likes to keep busy and active, you take pride in a job well done!


  • At least 18 years old.

  • Authorized to work in the US.

  • Valid driver's license.

In addition, you need the following:

  • Demonstrated ability to use standard hand tools such as hammers, screwdrivers, and wrenches as well as power tools such as drills, impact drivers, and saws

  • Ability to handle up to 50 lbs.

Manufacturing, production, industrial, or agricultural experience is preferred but multiple factors will be taken into consideration. A class B CDL license with a tanker endorsement would be a plus!

Can you follow both written and verbal directions, including Darling's Life-Saving Rules in the workplace? Do you have a positive can-do attitude? Are you a team player with a strong work ethic? If so, you might just be perfect for this Utility Worker / General Laborer position!


This full-time entry-level general labor job could work 2nd shift. You would typically work Monday - Saturday but some weekend work may be needed.
