Genesee Brewery Adding More Than 50 New Union Positions and Management Jobs

Applications are available online now for skilled and unskilled labor, and office work!

Rochester, NY – The Genesee Brewery recently announced immediate plans to add more than 50 new union and management positions in Rochester, New York. The Brewery’s Talent team is hiring individuals for a variety of manufacturing and office jobs. Some have already been hired.

“There are many great opportunities for skilled, unskilled and office workers. Most of the jobs fall within our five labor unions, that offer great pay and excellent benefits,” said Mary Beth Popp, vice president of corporate communications. “We’re urging people to apply online. We will set up interviews and make offers before the new year so that we are well-staffed going into our busy spring and summer selling season.”

Positions include plumbers, electricians, carpenters, masons, packaging operators, packaging mechanics, forklift drivers, sanitarians, apprentices in utilities and packaging supervisors. For a full list of open positions and to apply, go to: *Some listings are for multiple positions.

New Positions Tied to Investment and Growth

FIFCO USA paved the way for the Genesee Brewery’s stabilization and future with its $50 million investment to modernize the brewery in 2018. This update created a state-of-the-art facility within the historic brewery, that allowed the Genesee brewing team to make their classic and delicious beer to last fresher longer. Since 2018, the brewery has seen several other significant investments. The Genesee Brewery received a new sleek can line, draft center and other small improvements to help sustain and create a platform to grow the business. In addition, FIFCO USA also focused the commercial business to a few strategic priorities to help the company build momentum. That work has helped to accelerate the growth of Seagram’s Escapes, as well as Genesee Specialty brands.

“In 2018, we sought the opportunity to invest in the brewery and the business long-term. We took some natural attrition when we modernized the brewery and we continued to invest in our best opportunities,” said Popp. “Our strategy is slowly working and we’re making progress. We are looking to hire positions to meet the demand in the marketplace.”

Finger Lakes Features: Childcare Resources for Employers Presentation

As workers try to navigate the new requirements the COVID-10 pandemic has placed on communities, limited child-care options and changing school closures present a parallel crisis.

Working parents and their employers now find themselves in an ever-changing work and care landscape that can be increasingly tricky to navigate. Employers who are urgently addressing the care needs of their employees during this emergency, especially of those in lower income settings, can achieve business sustainability, productivity, and profitability in the long run.

The Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board recently presented an expert panel of local child care and human services providers to discuss resources available to employers and employees. 

Making up the panel was Julie Champion, Executive Director of Child & Family Resources, Inc. Renee Scholz, Family & Employer Services Director with The Child Care Council Inc. and Kay Jennings with Ontario County Department of  Social Services.
