Job Description
What's Great About This Opportunity?

New position to expand operational oversight of our laboratory operations in a small town located at the base of the Blue Mountains. Family owned, growing organization celebrating 50 years of service in Eastern Oregon where miles of scenic byways, alpine wilderness, working cattle ranches and basalt canyons are still the place for explorers to make their mark. Be part of a city that prides itself on its heritage. Discover its colorful past at a cultural museum, underground tour, bronze art trail or the world-famous Pendleton Round-Up. It’s like stepping back in time without losing modern-day comforts. After all, where else can you learn about native tribes, attend a rodeo, go golfing, drink craft beer and play slots all in the same day?

The Regional Operations Manager will be closely connected to our senior management team and will have the ability to make a significant impact on overall corporate success.
