Come for the Internship. Stay for the Career.

At Waugh Foods, we believe each customer deserves to be treated like a respected member of the family, with emphasis on tradition and excellent customer service. We understand the demands our customers must meet on a daily basis and will do all that we can to ensure their success. 

We treat each employee as a respected member of our family and want them to be successful as well. We accomplish this by maintaining a family-oriented attitude, offering a healthy work-life balance, and providing the tools employees need to achieve their career goals.  We are committed to our employees and are searching for dynamic people to join the Waugh family. 

We are a family-owned foodservice distributor based out of East Peoria, Illinois. The Central Illinois foodservice industry has trusted Waugh Foods to meet their food and non-food needs for over sixty-five years.  Our customers appreciate the personal touch of doing business with a local, independent distributor.  The vision of Waugh Foods is focused around partnering with our customers to provide services and ideas of which they would not otherwise have time to take advantage.


As a Sales Intern, you will work with our seasoned sales team to gain knowledge and experience needed for a successful and fulfilling career at Waugh Foods. You will also have the opportunity to work with key employees who will teach you other aspects of our business and industry.  During your internship, you will gain valuable experience in the areas of product and industry knowledge, prospecting new customers, building relationships, and maintaining customer accounts.


We are looking for energetic, self-motivated students who are career and goal-oriented with a strong desire to learn, grow, and succeed in an extremely competitive field. Qualified interns should possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to build lasting relationships with potential and existing customers.  Competitiveness, assertiveness, and perseverance are highly desired characteristics that will allow you to be successful in this career field. 

We are looking for undergraduate students working towards a Bachelor's degree, who will be beginning their sophomore, junior, or senior year in the Fall of 2018. Any student with an interest in the foodservice distribution industry or a career in Sales is encouraged to apply.  Minimum GPA of 3.0 is required.

This is a paid 11-week internship for the Summer of 2018.  Our internships include paid holidays for Memorial Day and Independence Day as well as one week of paid vacation.  Outstanding performance during this internship may lead to consideration for future career opportunities!

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume via email to Staci Fairchild with Waugh Foods at stacifairchild@waughfoods.com.
