When you work at Deseret Industries, it isn’t just about a “job”—it’s about setting goals, acquiring skills, and jump-starting your career. Deseret Industries is a training program—we provide you with the support you need to find meaningful, long-term employment in a field that interests you. Our associates have become CNAs, realtors, machinists, commercial truck drivers, phlebotomists, teachers, and more.

How can Deseret Industries help you? While working at Deseret Industries, you can:

1) Earn a wage while receiving training. Those enrolled in our job program work at our stores and are paid for their labor.

2) Meet with a development counselor to set goals and define your career path. Our development counselors are certified professionals who can help you overcome challenges and make plans for your future.

3) Gain confidence and valuable job skills in a safe place. Whether you’re collecting donations, processing items, or cashiering, Deseret Industries is a safe place for you to learn, grow, and try new things. Our job coaches will work with you each day to help you find success.
