Production Operator

Production Operator

 

We’re a leader in the pet care industry, which means we’re not only ahead in volume, profit and market share, but our associates dare to Stand Taller. We innovate new products, impart new agilities into existing processes, constantly advance pet nutrition, and always pay it forward in the form of service for our communities and families. Are you up for the dare?

 

This position is not eligible for Visa Sponsorship.

 

 

POSITION SUMMARY

 

Since the doors opened in 1972, this factory has grown dramatically into a sustainable state-of-the-art facility. In 2013, we completed our largest solar project yet by installing a 450-kilowatt photovoltaic system of nearly 1,900 panels. The amount of energy produced annually by this solar array could power nearly 52 average-sized homes, or approximately 5,000 lights bulbs for an entire year. With sustainability and safety always top of mind, our Atlanta factory proudly and passionately produces 460,000 tons a year of our dry pet food brands, including Alpo®, Beneful®, Cat Chow®, Dog Chow®, Fit & Trim®, Friskies®, Nestlé Purina ONE® and Pro Plan®. This plant location is just along the southern crescent of Metro Atlanta – an area that nearly 5 million residents and over 340 of our associates can call home. Atlanta is considered the major commercial and financial center of the Southeast and, if this beautiful city were a country, it would be the 28th largest economy in the world.

 

Manufacturing is the very core of our business. The Production Operators within our factories have their hands in it all. You’ll train in several functional areas within the manufacturing environment so you can effectively provide support to our production teams. Since safety is a top priority at Purina, much of your responsibility will focus on ensuring that our equipment and machinery remain in top-notch condition. Your ability to acclimate and problem solve quickly will be critically important as unforeseen equipment issues may arise throughout the normal operation day. You’ll have the opportunity to see our operations through the different shifts, working with experts in each of the different areas within manufacturing.

**Candidates must be available to work all shifts.**
 

  • Must always work safely by following safety policies and procedures. Must attend safety team and plant-wide meetings, safety and functional training, and perform regular observations.
  • Operation of Production equipment.
  • Sample ingredients and/or in process product.
  • Communicate with other operators, truckers, Team Leaders, and Quality Assurance and Food Safety personnel.
  • Maintain proper sanitation levels.
  • Operate a forklift.
  • Other job duties as assigned.


Requirements

  • High School Diploma or GED equivalent required.
  • 2+ years of experience in a manufacturing environment as a production or machine operator. 

 

The hourly pay for this position is $26.41. Please note that the pay range provided is a good faith estimate for the position at the time of posting. Final compensation may vary based on factors including, but not limited to knowledge, skills, and abilities as well as geographic location.

 

Nestle offers performance-based incentives and a competitive total rewards package, which includes a 401k with company match, healthcare coverage, and a broad range of other benefits. Incentives and/or benefit packages may vary depending on the position.
