Meatcutters and Meat Packers

Advancement Prospects

Experienced meatcutters may be promoted to supervisory positions, such as meat department manager in a supermarket or manager of the entire supermarket. A few become buyers for wholesalers and supermarket chains. Meatcutters working in restaurants and hotels may also become managers. Some become grocery store managers or open their own meat markets. Government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture, that oversee meatcutting and processing, also hire individuals with meatcutter backgrounds, though additional education and specialized training may be required.
