About the job

Are you an efficient worker who care for the details of your work, but looking for a new opportunity because the salary does not match your productivity? Well, good news for you, we have an offer for you at a company where efficiency is the key! It means, the more productive you are, the more bonus you could get! 

Currently we are looking for mushroom pickers for a factory in Hoogeveen, Drenthe province. The company is established in the 1960s and is known for quality, safety and honesty. Not only that, the company explicitly take the wishes and interests of the workers and their working environment into account. 

When you first start your work, you'll be given instructions about mushroom sorting according to the mushrooms' sizes and kinds. It takes some time for you to learn and work with higher productivity. The highligh of the project is that, the faster you work, the better the bonus! Therefore we are looking for self-driven candidates. 

On average, the candidates are expected to pick 22kg mushrooms per hour. It might sound like a lot, but actually when you start learning and working, it's just a piece of cake! When you are able to pick more than 22kg mushrooms per hour, the extra bonus is €0,38 per hour per kilo. Every 4 weeks the total amount of the mushroom picked will be counted, and it's time for you to get your bonus. In other words, your salary level is in your hands! 

Besides that, we also offer you nice bonus for extra hours and special days. When you work more than 38 hours per week, your overwork hourly rate will be counted as 125% of the basic salary. You'll also receive 125% of the salary when you need to work on saturdays and 150% on Sundays and national holidays. 

You need to take into account that, on some days you might work shorter and some days longer - it depends on the growth of the mushrooms! This way the clients could enjoy fresh, healthy and fair products. 


  • Communicative English or Polish 
  • Driver's license is preferred
