Wrigley. Creating simple pleasures to brighten everyone’s day.
Wrigley is a company without boundaries
Because that’s how we see the world
Whether it’s a piece of gum to keep
your mouth healthy, fresh, and clean
Or a handful of candy to put a smile on your face
The goodness our products bring
never gets lost in translation
Our creativity drives us forward
To new places. New products. New occasions
And new ways for the world to enjoy Wrigley
So whenever you want to add
a little extra flavor to your day
We’re right at your fingertips
and right by your side
As a part of Mars, Incorporated, Diversity and Inclusion is not a program at Wrigley - it is who we are and how we live. It is a value inherent in The Mars Five Principles.
We are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and belonging. It is our priority to maintain a broad view of different perspectives from all backgrounds at every level of the organization. We absolutely believe that by leveraging our similarities and differences and creating an environment of Inclusion and belonging, we will greatly enhance our performance and the mutuality of benefits we share with our stakeholders.
- William Wrigley Jr., circa 1891
With an initial focus in North America, we are renewing our Diversity and Inclusion efforts across Mars segments by:
- Building capability of Inclusive Leadership
- Growing and developing a diverse talent pipeline
- Living a culture of inclusion and belonging
At Mars, we deeply believe that everything we do can mean more. That’s why our objective is to make a difference to people and the planet through performance. We do that in line with our values that have been with us for decades; by putting our Principles in action.
And because we are a company that is about more than just profit, we look for Associates that seek to make the opportunities they get here mean more. More to themselves and their own career, and along the way, more to the people and the communities they interact with.
A mutually rewarding experience.
Work. Realize your ambitions. And realize there’s more to being in business than just making a profit. That’s the Mars philosophy. And the opportunity we offer every one of our Associates. An opportunity to take what you do and make it mean more for you, for those around you and for the planet.
What you get here is challenging, interesting work. You get the tools you need to do a great job and you get to have the best possible people on your side to help you do it. And at the same time as getting to find ways to do business better today than we did it yesterday and driving a great career, you also get to build a more enlightened business and drive sustainability.
Because it’s never just about a single person, a single project or a single brand. It’s about how you can grab everything that’s within your reach here and use it to pursue mutual, long-term gain. It’s about having ideas. And ideals. Being prepared to risk failure because the promise of success means we’ll all be a little better off. It’s that mix of integrity and ambition that makes Mars such a special place to work. And why working here is always about more than just a job.
The Five Principles of Mars
The Mars Five Principles of Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency and Freedom are the foundation of our culture and our approach to business. They unite us across geographies, languages, cultures and generations.
Our Five Principles are synonymous with Mars and have been guiding Mars Associates throughout most of our company’s history. Every day, we do our best to put our principles into action through our work and our relationships with our consumers, customers, business partners, communities and one another.

Advice to Management
Take more chances on your high potentials. Act like a $2b company, not a $36b company

I applied online – interviewed at Wrigley.
The process began with a phone interview from headquarters. After that, you were assigned an in-person interview with the Regional Manager. The interview instructions were very detailed and organized. Applicants were asked to stop into some retail stores ahead of time and check shelves, product, i.e., do some research. The actual interview was in a conference room with two people. The questions were challenging and thoughtful- they wanted to know how you would handle multiple accounts, conflict, sales obstacles, etc. After all the questions, you were asked to "act out" a sales interaction.
- The most difficult part was role playing. They give you a one-sheet about optional displays, end caps and pricing, about 2- minutes to study it. Then they return to the room to act out the scene. You are the Wrigley rep and he/she is the store owner. Your job is to sell them a new display. 1 Answer
