    Business Outlook


    Overall, I feel like Purina really cares about me as an individual. I'm consistently encouraged to take care of physical and mental safety/wellbeing and I feel like I'm a valuable part of the team as my authentic self. The challenging growth opportunities I've had so far show me that my leaders are not only listening to my goals and recognizing my skillset, but also that they are advocating for me and my development. I've had the support I need to get outside my comfort zone, and I know I've grown significantly (personally and professionally) as a result! It's very energizing and inspiring to work with my current teammates. Not only does it feel great to be a part of such a high-performing, passionate team, but the diversity in our team in all dimensions (experience, race, gender, etc.) means I am surrounded by mentors and role models, and I am constantly learning from my peers. One of the things I found most surprising and refreshing is that I truly do trust senior leaders within the organization to act with integrity, humility, and empathy. They don't just "talk the talk" when it comes to valuing and prioritizing people, and the messaging is consistent: we do the right thing, even if it's hard. I'm also very passionate about what Purina does! With previous companies, I haven't felt that same connection, and it can be disheartening and uninspiring. As a pet-owner myself, the fact that I can be a part of providing high-quality products to my own furry family members, and that I've seen the positive impact our products have on their lives, makes me feel like I'm part of something important and profound.


    Because Purina is a high-performing organization, the expectations are high, which means it's often a high-pressure environment as well. Though it can be exciting, those high expectations paired with the company's growth can be stressful at times. Manufacturing is a tough industry in general, and Purina isn't immune to the occasional long hours, early mornings, late nights, etc. seen across the industry.

      Difficult Interview

      I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé Purina U.S. (Clinton, IA) in Sep 2020


      Phone interview with HR from St. Louis first. Then a second interview at plant location. Purina sends you a lot of information so you can be prepared for the interview. Take the time to think through all potentional questions, especially scenario style questions. Safety and team player are important.

      Tell me about a time you to deal with an issue with another coworker.
