“It’s awesome that Sargento has a tuition reimbursement program and invests in me and anyone who wants to further their career. It wasn’t easy, but at least it was all paid for.  I have two little boys and I wanted to set an example for them, so after many long nights and early mornings, I earned my bachelor’s degree all while working full-time.  Now I’m working on my master’s.”

– Kyle Mueller, Second Shift Production Supervisor

Tuition Reimbursement
Sargento encourages life-long learning.  That's why we provide tuition reimbursement for employees pursuing associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees.  You can pursue a degree related or unrelated to your role with the company, with no time commitments.  All full-time employees who have completed their 90-day training period are eligible to participate. Part-time employees with one year of service are eligible for 50% of the tuition reimbursement benefit.
