OK Foods will pay a 30-cent raise in base pay for hourly production workers in its Arkansas and Oklahoma facilities. The company declined to give the average base pay information when asked by Talk Business & Politics. However, Glassdoor reports hourly production workers for OK Foods have a base pay ranging from $10 to $14 per hour.
More than 2,000 hourly production workers will receive an increase in pay, the company said. The company said the average base varies from position to position, but each will get the 30-cent bump in pay.
The company said most OK Foods production employees will also be eligible for an attendance incentive pay of $1 per hour and a 50-cent per hour production bonus in its plants in Heavener, Okla., Muldrow, Okla., and Arkansas.
“OK Foods recognizes the important role our production employees have in making our quality products,” said Christy Terry, vice president of people services at OK Foods. “We appreciate the dedication of those who work in our production facilities and are excited to see their professionalism rewarded.”
OK Foods provides a competitive benefits package to all employees and has a pay structure that increases with years of service. Recently, the company began an incentive plan that enters employees with exemplary attendance into a quarterly drawing, the company said.
This month, OK Foods employees Duc Vo, Manuel Gutierrez and Felipa Garmendia won a free car while Rosa Mayorga, Maria Herrera and Vikki Downs received an extra week of paid vacation.
“Our team members are the backbone of OK Foods,” President and CEO Trent Goins said. “Accordingly, we believe it is important to provide competitive compensation, and we expect that our team members will continue to grow with us as we further our mission to nourish the world.”
