Why join Lindt USA?
As a multi-channel, fast-growing consumer goods company, we recognize that in a competitive market, hiring the right talent makes all the difference.

To create happy and loyal Lindt consumers, we need to hire and retain empowered and results-driven Lindt employees. Our teams are comprised of inspired and dedicated professionals who stretch the boundaries of a typical career experience by making a difference in our business every day.
In addition to attracting and retaining the best talent, Lindt USA also focuses on how we can support these individuals once they get here. We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package, tuition reimbursement, and a 401K plan with a company match, as well as Flexible Work Options and a generous Paid Time Off policy. We believe in developing our employees and providing them with the support, resources and opportunities necessary to help them create a truly extra-ordinary career for themselves.
At Lindt USA, we pride ourselves on creating a dynamic, engaging and professional environment that embraces diversity, fosters innovation and drives for results in a competitive, fast-paced market. Rooted in both our credo and our company strategy, Lindt USA continually aims to attract and retain the best talent; people who share our passion for premium chocolate and the desire to drive profitable growth and market share in the U.S. We aspire to be seen as an Employer of Choice and believe it’s important to listen to our employees, develop our capabilities and teams, and celebrate our successes in a way that cultivates an intrinsic dedication to our products and our consumers.
What makes working at Lindt different? Our values and our commitment to you.
We understand that you have a choice in where you grow your career. Here are three reasons why you should come grow with us:
Distinctively Supportive: From your first day with Lindt USA, we aim to provide every Stratham employee with a premium onboarding experience, which includes lunch with our CEO, a tour of our production facility, and an opportunity to see how every aspect of our business lends itself to making Lindt USA a leader in the premium chocolate category. Being Distinctively Supportive means investing in what’s important to you. We offer up to 100% tuition reimbursement, employee referral bonuses, 401(k) with company match, a comprehensive Paid Time Off policy, flexible work options, and even a free turkey at Thanksgiving. Our Employee Assistance Programs offer free legal, financial, and mental health counseling services as well as smoking cessation and Weight Watchers groups. With our open door leadership style and commitment to cross-functional collaboration, we understand that it’s not just about who you work for, but rather who you are able to work with. Managers, Directors, and Vice Presidents at Lindt USA are accessible, knowledgeable, and eager to empower their team members in order to truly support their professional development, goals, and ability to impact the business.
All for Growth and Growth for All: Lindt USA employees have spent the last 25+ years helping to grow our organization, expand our market share in the premium chocolate category, and increase our consumer-base across the U.S. When we grow, we want to enable you to grow with us. All for Growth and Growth for All is a core value for us because we believe our success is a result of our collective efforts, and those wins should be shared. Regardless of whether you start your career with us as an intern in our competitively paid Lindternship Program, or you join as a mid-level professional with room to stretch, we want to ensure you have the tools, training, and resources you need to succeed. Our proven track record of developing and promoting talent from within, as well as our commitment to hiring high potential temporary employees into permanent positions within 90 days, has helped us not only attract, but retain, top talent. With a customized Career Pathing program, Lindt USA employees have the opportunity to not only move upwards within our organization, but they can also explore opportunities with our sister companies, Ghirardelli and Russell Stover, or even our international Lindt & Sprüngli teams across the globe.
Creating Moments of Happiness: Creating Moments of Happiness is a core value for us because at the end of the day, everyone should be able to love where they work and share in each other’s success. When our production team hits certain performance milestones, we throw a company-wide pizza party, and when the weather warms up, you can find our VPs and Directors serving up ice cream to employees as a way to kick off the summer. If you’re happiest spending time with friends and being active, we have a gym on campus that’s accessible to employees 24/7, yoga and fitness classes, and after-work Running, Golf, and Bowling Clubs that are open to all Lindt USA employees. Our cafeteria, the social hub of our campus, offers homemade breakfast, lunch, and dinner options for all three shifts, fresh sushi on Thursdays, a loaded soup and salad bar, and an extensive array of coffees that includes a Buy 10 Cups, Get 1 Free coffee-card program. Stratham employees across all departments are invited to our annual Holiday Gala and receive generous amounts of complimentary product.
A Company you join. A Community you belong to.
With an 800,000 square foot campus, it’s sometimes challenging to connect with colleagues and meet new people in other departments. That’s why Lindt USA both financially and socially supports the creation of inclusive employee-led clubs, cross-departmental committees, and company-wide initiatives to help you meet other members of the Lindt USA community. With Bowling, Golf, and Running Clubs, Fitbit Challenges, and team outings, you’re only one RSVP away from meeting a whole new circle of colleagues.
As it states in our credo, “We want to be recognized as a company which cares for the environment and the communities we live and work in.” Our consumers and our community members are one in the same, and at Lindt USA, we take a lot of pride in our charitable giving campaigns and our focus on local volunteerism. As an official partner of the United Way of the Greater Seacoast, we recognize that while national organizations are certainly important, sometimes the greatest need for support comes right from our own communities. It’s because of this that Lindt USA participates in two United Way “Days of Caring” each year where employees are able to spend a full day volunteering on company time at local nonprofits around the Seacoast. In addition to donating their time, Lindt USA in partnership with our employees raised over $300K through our annual giving campaigns, all to assist nonprofits in need.
Twice a year, the esteemed Lindt President's Club award is awarded to extraordinary employees who make a difference in the business...every day. These employees are nominated by their colleagues because they personify the values outlined in our Company Credo. A steering committee comprised of employees at all levels from across the business review the nominations and select the best candidate for our President's review. These special winners join the President's Club Hall of Fame, are celebrated in our Company's magazine, receive a cash award and use of the coveted "President's Club Parking Space" for six months.
