HARRISONVILLE, Mo. — Church & Dwight Co., Inc. has almost 100 positions open at its facility in Harrisonville, Missouri.

There's even a $1,000 sign-on bonus for new employees as long as they stay at least six months.

"This is the best smelling manufacturing facility I think I've ever worked at and worked at quite a few," plant manager Matt Kiser said.

The plant makes liquid and powder laundry detergent every day.

Kiser said wages start at $17 per hour and many positions don't require experience. He added that depending on experience or aptitude, you could earn a higher wage.

"So some people could come in, somewhere in between that pay range and some people could start at almost $26.00 per hour," he said. "We're looking for honest, reliable, dependable people to come and work here. It's a very safe, team-based work environment. It's one where we value our employees as our most important asset."

Employees work 12-hour shifts that run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on a rotating schedule, which means employees would get a three-day weekend every other week.

"It's fun being a part of a product that you know people use, and it's useful," Kiser said.

Producing a heavily used product is worth the work, according to production supervisor Kim Rebny.

"I've always liked the idea of creating a product for a customer and knowing that somebody that's going to go buy something that I kind of put my heart into," she said.
