Brakebush started in 1925 with two brothers and one truck providing sugar and egg delivery in central Wisconsin. The business grew to meet market needs, along with our reputation. We continue to thrive by sticking to our mission: to provide quality products and services at competitive prices that meet or exceed customer expectations and a quality work environment for our employees, consisting of competitive wages/benefits and optimum working conditions.

WESTFIELD, WI is home to our original plant and corporate headquarters. As a small-town community, Westfield offers quiet and opportunities to enjoy the Wisconsin outdoors, yet is close enough to shopping, entertainment, and businesses of popular cities like Madison (60 mi.), Stevens Point (60 mi.) and Wisconsin Dells (30 mi.). Our Westfield plant is a value-added, further processing facility where we develop and prepare delicious chicken.

Expect to engage in meaningful work that makes an impact on people, processes, or product. We aim to provide you with experiences, networking, and professional development that will help advance you in your field. OUR goal is to build relationships with and careers of potential team members. We are committed to your success.

This is a paid internship at $18.00/hour.

Most internships run 12-14 weeks from mid-May through August. We are flexible with most personal summer plans. Hiring managers will discuss intern duration and summer schedules with candidates.
